Loop Hero Review – Feeling a little Deja Vu?

Yo! You know what it is! I had to physically stop playing this game to write this article. I recently got this game because a friend recommended it to me. The game which has recently gotten a hold of me and probably a lot of others is Loop Hero.

Let me tell you for a simple game you will find yourself spending hours playing it. You’re going to learn a little about me today.

One of my favourite types of games is rogue-like. Because these games seemly have no end but they keep you so engaged in the game. Well, let’s get down to business!

Story

The game storyline is pretty simple: you’re a hero and the world has been plunged into darkness by an evil sorcerer. Named The Lich who has put the hero forever in a loop. The hero also has forgotten their memories. To restore them you must charge forward in a never-ending loop.

So as you progress through the loops you learn more of the storyline and with each new monster encounter, you will learn a little more about the world around you. By encountering monsters and going through the loop you are on a quest to restore your memories and the world itself.

Playstyle

The play style of this game is pretty unique. It’s like the opposite of a tower defence game you usually play. The game engages you in finding the right balance of putting enemy tiles on your path or adding more mountains that will eventually create one of those pesky goblin encampments.

Playing this game makes you find the best strategy in making it to the boss fight. As you progress through the game you will be able to build up your camp which will make your expeditions into the darkness a little easier.


Every battle you have is automatic so you will only be in control of what type of items your hero has equipped. By defeating certain monsters or going through certain tiles you place in the loop. You will gain materials, from these materials you can build different buildings back at your base.

You will be able to build a kitchen, smithy, and many more useful buildings that will help your hero through the journey. The game has four chapters in which the hero must defeat the final boss. With each chapter, the monsters get harder and certain effects will be placed in the gameplay.

There are also three classes to choose from warrior, rogue, and necromancer. But you will start with the warrior and you must build your camp up to get access to the other two classes. There are differences with each class with the rogue class they are able to dual wield and will not get loot from monsters like the warrior or necromancer class. They will earn their loot once they make it to the campfire. The necromancer is a little complicated because this hero attacks indirectly using skeletons. So the play style for each hero is different and has pros and cons to each one.

Conclusion

Another thing that draws me to this game is its cool retro style. The art style they choose for this game is unique and makes it stand out. The developers did a great job with this game. The soundtrack is also catchy which doesn’t make it any easier in trying to not spend hours playing this game.

This is a game that requires a good amount of strategy in making sure your hero makes it to the boss fight. Do you think you have what it takes to finally ending this forever loop?
