Rogue Wizards is a really good dungeon-crawling adventure, with a very cute style. Game length is balanced, in that there's plenty to do but it's never a chore. The opening does sort of drop you into the action without much of an explanation of how, why, or what to do, but over time you start to piece everything together.

Getting through the game's dungeons can be a bit of a grind, which is fairly typical for this type of game. But if you're the kind of person who wants to dig in and leave no stone unturned, then you'll have a blast trying to squeeze every last bit of XP by finding every treasure and defeating every monster. There are times that the game feels a little unbalanced, though. Some enemies are a cinch to defeat, while others feel nearly impossible to get past. And since some of the bosses warp all over the map during the turn-based battles, you can spend a large chunk of time just trying to chase them down. This isn't a huge problem if you come into the fight prepared with a good arsenal of spells and a little bit of strategy, but sometimes that's a lot easier said than done.
