QuickFacts

Critics Consensus: Loop Hero plays like a create-your-own-adventure roguelike, taking the genre to a whole other level of customization where the terrain is your sandbox. This is a brilliant piece of art that successfully borrows from a range of genres and puts a new twist on old RPG ideas.

“The spirit of early-’90s fantasy games, cleverly revived in an original and digestible form.”

8/10

“If its aesthetics appeal and the gameplay style grabs you, then Loop Hero will take over your gaming life until you finish it or are drag yourself away. It reminded me strangely of the allure of Football Manager but with a more fantasy setting. The combination of auto combat and strategic choices, with resource management and settlement development on top, makes this a unique and captivating indie game.”

Donovan Erskine (Shacknews)

9/10

“Loop Hero succeeds as an adventure game by blending together elements of strategy and roguelikes in a way that feels clever and fresh. Giving players agency on the adversaries they encounter, and the frequency of said encounters, is an exciting spin on the genre, and one that forced me to strategize in a unique way. Couple the outstanding mechanics with a gorgeous and well-executed visual design, and you’ve got yourself one satisfying gameplay loop.”
