Streets of Rogue is a roguelike game. It incorporates elements of both the adventure and action genre. Developed by Matt Dabrowski and published by tinyBuild Games, the game was released on March 10, 2017. The game bears resemblance to GTA and Nuclear Throne, meaning that it allows for the main player to roam around freely while having the opportunity to join missions and win rewards. Set in a procedurally generated city, each mission is set on its designated floor, where the player can also choose to indulge in daily activities, or into action-based gameplay.

The Game Review
Featuring a total of more than 40 types of characters, each with their distinct traits, the objective of each floor varies according to the generated story. The tasks revolve around retrieving items, stealing, forming gangs, and fighting people. These characteristics make Streets of Rogue an open-ended game, allowing for endless possibilities to be explored by the main player. Given that each character has their own distinct abilities, no one certain course of action can be taken by the main player.
The game starts with four options to choose from, Quick Start, Home Base, Online, and Daily Run. Given that you select the option to play the Home Base, you then get to choose the number of players for the game. The option shows that the game supports up to a maximum four players and minimum one player. When you select the single-player mode, the first floor of the game appears with no apparent mission. The character is free to roam around until they choose to change their floor and sim and advance to the next phase of the game.
Within the base floor, you get access to the hacker who can provide you with mutations. Similarly, you can interact with the doctor who can develop your traits. Both these upgrades require money, of which the medium of exchange in the game is chicken nuggets. Since no missions have been played, no such currency pre-exists before the completion of a mission. You can choose to change your floor from this point on and change your sim. Although the game begins with the Slum Dweller, you can change your character to the soldier, the scientist, the hacker, the gangster, the thief or the doctor.
A total of twenty characters are on display before the start of the first mission. However, only seven characters are accessible from the starting point. Each specific character has the own traits and their own distinct starting items. For the doctor, her traits include being a pacifist and a medical professional. The starting items provided to her include a first aid kit, an EarWarp whistle, and a tranquilizer gun. Likewise, for the Gangster (crepe), his starting items include a pistol, knife, friend phone, and a boombox.
The purpose of the game is to offer a varied storyboard for the player. The game also allows for the player to customize their character, making it an all-in experience, similar to those of RPG games.
