I don’t think action roguelikes are bad by any means, but I’ve yet to encounter one that’s really captured that old-school turn based roguelike experience where you spend five minutes wracking your brain trying to figure out how to escape a situation where every move leads to certain death, then finally go “fuck it” and set off a bizarre chain reaction between four different items you’re pretty sure the developers never intended to be used together that blows up half the map, freezes your computer for a solid thirty seconds while it works out all the dice rolls, and for some reason transforms your character into a penguin.
