A roguelike is a genre of role playing games, normally associated with procedurally generated levels, pema-death and often based in a fantasy setting. As of late the genre has gotten pretty popular and with that there have been games that use some of these aspects but not all. They are increasingly getting referred to as roguelites. Considering how close roguelites are to roguelikes, both are types are listed and are acceptable here for submission.

Pixel Dungeon

Pixel Dungeon’s gameplay is intuitive allowing for it to be easy to get into, but it’s also very challenging quickly making the experience both rewarding and addictive.

Cardinal Quest 2

Often you’ll see a paid character class or currency in a game. In this one, the currency is earned by successful/failed runs, and even the paid character class can be earned through a boss fight mechanic, making it something to work towards.

Random Adventure Roguelike

The game is currently completely free with an option for donations so the developer feels more motivated to continue developing the game. There are no ads, and there’s no bonus if you donate. It’s just an altruistic option.

Wayward Souls

Wayward Souls has randomly generated dungeons, just as a Roguelike would, but the difference being experience and gear are kept. So players slowly build up their characters over time by repetition.

Caves (Roguelike)

The first time I saw it I didn’t think much of this game, but still decided to download it and try it. After just playing it for 5 minutes I realised it was just the game I was looking for,it was everything I wanted in a game and now I can’t stop playing it.

Pathos: Nethack Codex

I didn’t think I would like the repetitive aspect, but it is actually quite enjoyable. Lots to discover and a quickly scaling difficulty make things a great challenge.
