Mistiming a jump, I clatter into an armored brute. I tumble back, managing to bail out before I hit the spike trap below, but not before I’m hit by an incoming firebolt from a very angry wizard. My unfortunate protagonist Lady Alex shrugs before shuffling off her mortal coil.

It’s been six years since I last played Rogue Legacy, and in many ways Rogue Legacy 2 makes it feel like I’ve never been away. It’s instantly recognizable, from the endearingly clunky combat to its cheeky sense of humour. The premise remains unchanged: each time the roguelite claims the life of my hero, one of their heirs continues the fight. After spending their inheritance—the money you earned on your previous run—on permanent upgrades, my successor heads off to make their own fortune, and almost certainly perish in the process.
