Pocket Gamer: 100 Rogues Review

Pocket Gamer:

If you're one of the 99 percent of people who hate their jobs, what would you say is the reason for such loathing? Could it be the endless cycle of repetitive duties? The constant grind of energy-sapping work for the tiniest of returns?

Strange though it may seem, there's a long-established game genre that treats players in just such a manner. Even more strangely, players lap it up.

The hardcore dungeon crawling RPG comes in a number of forms, but they're all joined by a common theme: pain. If you can make it through the game without repeated deaths and restarts and without suffering at least one nervous breakdown, the game has failed. (100 Rogues, iPhone) 8/10
