Description

Roundguard is a bouncy dungeon crawler with pinball physics, lots of loot, and a randomized castle full of oddballs. Press your luck against hordes of dangerously cute monsters and challenging roguelike elements in this all-round bouncy adventure! If you love roguelikes & Peggle, then Roundguard is for you.

History

We bounced a few ideas off each other and got the ball rolling in March 2017. Drawing inspiration from the physics-based fun of Peggle, the strategy and surprise of classic roguelikes, and the quirky humor of Adventure Time and the Adventure Zone, we've created the bounciest "dungeon-baller" the world has ever seen.

Features

  • Bouncy Fun: Intuitive pinball physics based gameplay like no other dungeon crawler.
  • Multiple Classes: Play as the Warrior, the Rogue, or the Wizard, each with their own unique skills, items, and bad jokes to roll your eyes at.
  • Randomized Dungeon: Each time you play, the world map and every level are procedurally generated, and quest events and elite monsters are randomly placed. It’s a new experience every time.
  • Permadeath with Benefits: Each time you die, you’ll have a chance to bring a special trinket with you on your next run to help even the odds. The more gold you grab before dying, the better your chances to collect one of the most powerful trinkets for your next run.
  • A Cast of Oddballs: Chat with the castle’s colorful cast to pick up quests and learn why some rats want their king dead, what’s irritating the local teenage skeleton today, or what the Warrior will do if you can’t get to a bathroom quickly enough.
  • Lots of Loot: Over 100 items and trinkets, each with effects that present strategic choices and combo possibilities. Rare and legendary items have randomly chosen bonus properties, so each one feels special.
  • Show Off Your Skills: Compete on the leaderboards and try to master all the challenging, rule-bending relics.
