Rogue Legacy will likely be the most popular of the bunch. At Metacritic, it received a favorible 85 out of 100 across 43 reviews. The 2D platformer takes players in a randomized dungeon for every playthrough.

As they get stronger, the player can progress further in the dungeon.
Having Rogue Legacy on a device like the Vita is a no-brainer. It’s tailor-made for pick-up-and-play and shouldn’t be missing on anyone’s handheld now that it’s free.
