Gallius is a fast-paced rogue-lite game that combines nonstop action with retro platforming all into one action-packed game!
If you’ve played games like Rogue Legacy, you’ll have an idea of what Galliusis like. You play through various randomly-generated dungeons as either a Mage, Rogue, or Knight. Each dungeon you crawl through has a ton of puzzle and platform elements with a wizard boss at the end. Being that it’s a random game, it has multiple floors that you need to progress through and each of them has randomly-generated rooms and a boss at the end.
The game really throws you a curveball because you really can’t predict what’s next. You can’t work the system by collecting up on HP pots and saving it for a specific room because it’s all random. The end bosses are also pretty tough to beat and your character gradually gets more powerful as you get upgrades that are permanent. It’s not a roguelike, its a rogue-lite. The upgrades are pretty much required if you want to beat the bosses.
You’ll also encounter various enemies that you’ll have to take down with your swords and some that you have to jump slash to kill. Watch out for dripping lava, endless pits, and projectile weaponry that’ll fill your screen!
Gallius features retro 8-bit artwork with simple sprites and effects. If you like fast-paced platforming action, you should definitely give this game a try. Choose your class. Dodge the projectiles, enemies, and traps. Fight the boss. It’s not as easy as it sounds!

I play the newest to the crappiest indie games and filter them for the rest of the crew.
In other words, I’m a bottom-feeder. Why do I volunteer for this trash?
