[Beyond PlayStation] Rogue Singularity Review
Rogue Singularity from Considerable Content and Nnooo is a 3D roguelike platformer that pays homage to old-school games in the genre. Learn more in our Rogue Singularity review!
A 3D roguelike platformer is not something you see every day. As expected, for this one if you lose all of your energy and die, youâ€™ll be sent back to the start and will have to do it all over again. Youâ€™ll at least get to learn from your mistakes, as you get the hang of things and understand what each new hazard and enemy is going to do to get in your way. Youâ€™ll be able to learn the basics in a few minutes since most of the time youâ€™ll be running and jumping non-stop to try and make it to the end of the stage.
You play as a robot that you can customize as you progress in the game by using the many gold coins that you collect as you complete each of the many levels on offer. The gameâ€™s controls are not going to feel just right for everyone, but worry not since you can go into the options menu to customize the sensitivity so that you can find a configuration that works for you. The default setup means that the camera is a bit too sensitive, and that might end up keeping you from running and jumping with the precision that is required of you. Moving the camera around to find the right path, and the best way to do this is by placing the camera from almost a top-down perspective. Being able to move the camera into your chosen position is a good thing.
As you progress through each level, the difficulty will increase at a steady pace, and youâ€™ll be able to unlock new stuff and buy better abilities. Youâ€™re going to die a ton in this one, but with every death comes a new understanding of the new elements the game is throwing at you, and you will get to dive again into the gauntlet, hopefully after buying a new ability that can help you progress even further than the last time. These abilities will include things such as being able to drop a jump boost platform or being able to fall down at a slower pace after jumping.
For a bit of a change of pace, you can also take on the gameâ€™s Daily Challenge. The content you will find in each of the levels in the Daily Challenge will be every bit as challenging as what you will get to experience in the main game. Find a trap or hazard in the main game? Then itâ€™s going to be just as deadly in the Daily Challenge! As its name suggests, the levels you will take on will vary from day to day, so no two Daily Challenges are going to be the same. You can use these to collect some extra coins to buy more customization options for your robot and new abilities!
Rogue Singularity is impressive in its accessibility features. Among other features, the team has added special fonts for people with dyslexia, and it also includes a font resize option for visually impaired players. Not many games bother to include features such as these, so kudos to the team for caring about offering options for players that might need to customize their experience to be able to enjoy the game.
Rogue Singularity is a very fun 3D roguelike action platformer with a lot of content on offer. If you give the game a chance, you will find a solid game to enjoy with a nice variety of hazards and enemies to avoid, as well as boss levels to complete. It has a nice art style that is visually appealing, lots of customization options for your robot, and a nice progression system for you to keep coming back for more.
