Will 2020 be the year we all become head-over-heels obsessed with Hades? I'm not quite at that point yet, but Supergiant Games' mythological roguelike action title has only grown more compelling with each passing update. The latest Early Ac...

Sparklite is a cute roguelike that's best enjoyed on Switch

Far too many times I've booted up a decently technical roguelike, not liked the presentation, and decided the juice wasn't worth the squeeze. On the other side of the spectrum, visuals and charm can count for a lot in a frequently frustrati...

Nuclear Throne is worth playing for free courtesy of Epic

I will go to bat for Nuclear Throne, especially while the PC version is free on the Epic Games Store. Look, I get it. There's a near-endless supply of indie roguelike shooters in this world. So many of them blur together, and so very few a...

Downwell is free on Android

I shouldn't need to talk you into picking up a game as perfect as Downwell when it's free. Heck, you should probably already own it somewhere -- PC, Switch, PS4, mobile -- because it's only $3. But, $3 is $3, and free is free. For the ...

Exit the Gungeon is a 'dungeon climber' spin-off game

Enter the Gungeon didn't inflict enough pain on this world, apparently. Game developer Dodge Roll wants us to survive another bullet-hell gauntlet. Its next venture, Exit the Gungeon, is a spin-off with the same manic vibe but a slightly di...

Risk of Rain 2 just popped up on Switch, PS4, and Xbox One

Risk of Rain 2 is a super fun roguelike. I want to give it more of my free time. But, given that it's still making its way through Steam Early Access, my play sessions have been sporadic at best. I don't want to spread it too thin too early...
