Roving Rogue 

 

Roving Rogue starts with an interesting question. Here it is: "You killed the Final Boss. Cool. Gratz. And now… what?" In the real world we see the game credits, turn it off, and go onto another game. In Roving Rogue however the end is the beginning. Players go backwards in the game. The main hero got bonked on the head in the boss battle or something and can't remember the past.

Going backwards from chapter six to chapter one is certainly a different way of playing a video game. This is the biggest selling point for Roving Rogue on the Wii U. This downloadable only video game has a single player mode and a multiplayer mode. Family Friendly Gaming was provided a download code for Roving Rogue on the home console video game system.

Players can run, jump, and teleport their way through the levels. I wish there was some customization on the buttons though. I wanted to use a different button for the teleportation. I also wish the teleport would go where I tell it to. I ran into corners that would get in the way of the teleportation. Or after I had the right spot selected it would bounce to a different location.

Graphically Roving Rogue looks like an 8-bit to a 16-bit video game. Many of the objects, areas, walls, and enemies are repeated in the forty-two levels of Roving Rogue. In fact many of the levels felt the same. Boss levels are just like regular levels except they are played in the dark. Players have a small amount of light around them. This adds to the difficulty of jumping and teleporting to the right locations.

The music fits the theme of this downloadable only home console video game. The multiplayer helps with the replay value of Roving Rogue. It shows who can move faster through the level avoiding the rocks of lava. Roving Rogue is kind of like an endless runner since players can not stay in one spot too long. The continuation flags are extremely important in Roving Rogue because it is easy to die. Players can attack enemies or avoid them.
