Roguelikes and dungeon crawlers have been a hot thing as of late, and indie developer My Kung Fu Games have their own take on the genre in the works called Rogue Heroes. It's not a traditional top-down dungeon crawl, but a side-scrolling platformer in a similar vein as Ravenous Games' recent (and quite excellent) release Devious Dungeon. Rogue Heroes has many of the features you might expect from a game of its ilk, like randomly-generated level, character progressions and an inventory system, secret rooms to find and of course permadeath.

Rogue Heroes looks pretty awesome based on that video, and My Kung Fu hopes to have the game out on the App Store sometime in the "middle of April," which could mean at any time in the next couple of weeks. No pricing has been announced yet, but we'll let you know when it's available later this month.

    No rogue-like will ever take that special place NetHack has in my heart.

  • CooleTeeps

    This game looks cool and the story seems very developed and thought out!

  • shcgzb

    but with touch control... Good luck.

  • JCho133

    This looks very nice

  • demod1

    Rogue-like meets Metroidesque platforming! Yes sir! I'll take it!

  • nothingreal

    Rogue Legacy lite perhaps?

    looks good

  • SwithNova

    Been looking for a good rouge like platformer since devious dungeon was a huge disappointment this looks good and there seems to be actual character customization I can't wait to try it out

  • the_rebel14

    That title kind of looks like Rogue Legacy. Hmm...

    • alex13111

      I noticed that too. Great game, btw

  • HansKaosu

    Looks good.

  • Frost

    Random Heroes lacked... a lot. Lets hope this is the solution to my itch with this genre

  • NPeart

    I hope the "music" is not from the game.

    And looks a bit too simple for roguelike, as well as generic for metroidvania.

    it's gonna be either this game, Rogue Heroes, or Wayward Souls which I've been looking forward to for a loooong time. or maybe both if the prices are good!
