Phil writes, “The rogue-like and its more forgiving rogue-lite cousin are two genres that are quite popular with indie game developers. The genre encourages you to master its mechanics, learn from your mistakes, and even bash your head against the proverbial wall until you finally overcome a particularly devious floor or boss. Crown Trick from developer NEXT Studios is one such rogue-lite that brings with it a tremendous initial challenge that gets easier (but not by that much) as you make progress, earning new abilities and permanent upgrades during and between runs. The game ends up being a difficult but engaging title worthy of a play.”
