If you like difficult but not unfair games, “Rogue Legacy 2” you will be interested
a new representative within the “roguelite” genre which has been made famous by geniuses such as “Hades” or “Dead Cells”, this game is a kind of reimagining of the first installment in which we have to embody a hero with class and random namealong a scenario also randomly generated.
The joke is that every time you die you lose all your progress but you can use the money you have found to acquire permanent improvements that are passed on to the next hero (your legacy) that touches you.
The interesting thing is that each character has different characteristics and also receives certain “curses” how to be colorblind (you will see everything in black and white) or be vegan and get hurt by eating meat, which is what heals you under normal conditions. Hilarious and challenging.
Where to play it? Windows, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X.
Whether you’re one of those who came to play games on a PC with EGA graphics (4 colors) or you don’t even know them, you have to play “The Eternal Castle”.
An amazing modern adventure made with graphics from a game from 1987, ideal for fans of Prince of Persia, Flashback or Another World.
We must move forward fighting and shooting the enemies that we come across while solving puzzles, in this false “remastering” that pays tribute to an incredible era of gaming on PC.
The best thing to sell this game is its trailer in which in just a minute you will be hooked.
Where to play it? Windows, Linux, Mac, PS4, PS5, Switch
