If you love roguelikes but hate IAPs, Cannon Ballers is the game for you. This upcoming roguelite is available right now in beta for those that want to give it a try.
Roguelike (or rogue-like; sometimes capitalized) is a subgenre of role-playing video game characterized by a dungeon crawl through procedurally generated levels, turn-based gameplay, tile-based graphics, and permanent death of the player character. Most roguelikes are based on a high fantasy narrative, reflecting their influence from tabletop role-playing games such as Dungeons & Dragons.
In the Cannon Ballers, you play as a pirate who, for some reason, has to kill a bunch of sheep and peasants to earn cash and points. You’ll do just that with a massive cannon that you have in your possession. Judging from the tiny bit of gameplay we’ve seen, iMy ct kind of looks like pinball or pong, except you can redirect the cannonball.
Beat a mission and you’ll get stuff to add to your collection. We assume this stuff has gameplay value but we don’t know as the official site is short on useful information.
You’re best off trying it for yourself if you’re interested. Simply follow this link to Google Play and sign up for the beta to check it out.
