  • Summary: This is a very good game, that way too many people overlook. To those who are starting out, yes - this game is very hard, but with time and effort, you can play it like a boss.

  • Summary: Risk of Rain is like FTL's younger platformer cousin with the added bonus of multiplayer. Like FTL, this game is difficult and it will take multiple playthroughs before you make any headway.

  • Summary: Great, great, great game. A roguelike platformer bullethell such as never been seen before. The mechanics are fun, the character diversity is awesome, and the enemies are scaled well. The multiplayer, with certain perks, I will admit, because almost tediously easy, but that only adds to the allure.

  • Summary: Risking Everything... ...to Please the NES Gods Make no mistake- modern though its release date may be, Risk of Rain's gameplay is just as classic as Donkey Kong, Mario, or Mega Man's gameplay.

  • Summary: Very pleasing game, run after run you discover new items. It's a mix between binding of isaac for the items and fun and Faster than light for re-playability and each run being a load of fun and discoveries. I really enjoy this game.

  • Summary: Really, truly phenomenal fun. It'll take a bit to get into it as it takes hard work to unlock the best characters and it is quite hard, but the entire process is worthwhile. Easily the best of the whole rogue-lite genre that has been popular recently. Go buy it!

  • Summary: Risk of rain is super hard, but super rewarding and addictive. The strong points about the game are the difficulty meter, the itemization and classes. But also the neat gameplay and interesting design and not to speak about the music, it's amazing.

  • Summary: This is a decent game and the combat is a lot of fun. However, the platforming is extremely dull and most of the game is spend unloading hundreds of rounds into enemies with way too much health. It's not that it's hard, it's just dull.

  • Summary: Just give it a shot! The mechanics are amazing, the gameplay is incredibly tight and extremely rewarding. It is good for longer sessions or a quick playthrough. And I did not even try the multiplayer yet!
