"Retro Rogue-like With Compact, Chess-Inspired Levels"
Perfectly-sized dungeons, ruthless enemies and delightful turn-based controls make this a pleasing retro revival. The 10 floors are varied enough as you move one or two squares to tackle the micro-monsters.
Each monster operates in its own way, so you have to be clever to tempt it into a trap or attack it successfully. This creates a deep tactical strategic element. The pixel art is delightful and not as intense as some rogue-likes. In fact, this is a good intro to the genre.
If you're looking for substantial levels, MicRogue isn't for you. It also takes some time to familiarize yourself with the enemy patterns of attack.
