2Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos
Remember A Link to the Past? Sure you do – one of the best Zelda games ever made. Well, Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos reeks of A Link to the Past – in the best way possible. But it has one nifty trick up its sleeve: it’s a co-op multiplayer game. Just like A Link to the Past, you set out on a journey to save the world. But here, you can be accompanied by up to three friends. It’s rare we see this type of game in co-op form, but it really works.
Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos fuses old-school adventuring with Rogue-like elements. In a dungeon, if you die, you’ll be sent back to the beginning again. But the currency you’ve collected can be spent on upgrades. So each time you try, even if you fail, you’ll be strengthening your character. Outside of dungeons, you can explore the world, uncover secrets and build new facilities in town. It’s a delightful game alone, but with friends, it’s even more charming. Not only is it one of the best co-op games on Switch, it’s also one of the most unusual, and we can’t get enough of it.
