Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos is a procedurally generated roguelike adventure that takes several key cues from classic 8-bit and 16-bit Zelda titles. We’ve had an absolute roguelike review over the past few weeks.
Get to grips with the combat
Combat is a key element of Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos, which is why you’ll want to get to grips with the fighting gameplay as quickly as possible. There are several dungeons in the game for you to explore and conquer, but before going into the first dungeon, we recommend fighting the many enemies scattered around the world.
Picking out weaker enemies first gives you the perfect opportunity to get used to not only the feel of attacking but also to immerse you in enemy attack animations and when you need to block. Fighting in Rogue Heroes mainly requires a lot of patience in the early stages. Plowing first in most encounters will almost certainly result in death, so just take your time and learn the rhythms of each enemy.
Cut all the grass – Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos
Rogue Heroes wants you to cut every grass and break every rock in your way. Almost every room or area in Rogue Heroes has something for you to break, and it will often yield hearts, spells, or other items. Although the dungeon drop rate is lower, it’s still worth checking out as those hearts can provide an important lifesaver
Build – Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos
The main loop in the game of Rogue Heroes revolves around earning gems, building a town, and upgrading your character. As soon as you have some gems, start building your village. Building a village allows you to unlock abilities that improve your strength, stamina, unlock new combat abilities, and upgrade your tools. The process itself is very simple as you need to approach Griff who is building the building in the center of the village. From there, you can choose the building you want to build and where you want to place it.
Choose the best upgrades
There is a dizzying amount of upgrades on offer in Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos, that’s why it’s best to focus on strength and health in the early game stages. We highly recommend you level up, increase damage, attack speed, and sword range along with your max health. These will give you the most profit early in the game, making you more efficient in the dungeons.
Clear rooms – Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos
Most dungeon rooms are filled with enemies, but not all of them require you to clear the room to progress. If you’re particularly weak on health, you can just solve the puzzle and move on to the next room, but it might be worth the risk. Clear out enemy rooms and in most cases, you’ll be rewarded with one or more chests to open. These chests can hold anything from extra gems to health and even useful items.
Socialize with townspeople
As your town grows and NPCs start inhabiting it, make sure you talk to them. While some may only offer a line of text, others will offer quests that lead to new items and upgrades. Whoever said the art of conversation was dying was certainly wrong in this case.
