Roguelike Games 101
Touhou Genso Wanderer Reloaded is a type of RPG known as a “roguelike.” Every time you enter a new dungeon, your character’s level will go back to 1, the layout of the dungeon will change, and the items you’ll find on the ground will be different.
Roguelikes are turn based, so every time you move one square or take an action (such as attacking), the enemies will each get one turn of their own. As long as you’re standing still, the enemies will stay put, too.
However, unlike a typical roguelike, the dungeons in Touhou Genso Wanderer Reloaded let you keep your items, even if you’re defeated! So make sure to collect as many as you can!
If roguelike games seem scary to you, don’t worry! This game has a lot of options and systems to ensure your dungeon adventures turn out great!
- Intuitive Interface: With a press of a button, you can bring up your Cross Menu, allowing you easy access to everything about your character you’ll need.
- Changeable Game Speed: You can choose between three different speeds for the game to run at, and change the speed at any time. Set your speed depending on your playstyle.
- UI Options: You can change the size of the user interface or the placement of the mini-map to suit your needs.
One day, a heavy rain poured down on Gensokyo. Reimu Hakurei looked for shelter in a shop called “Kourindo,” but all she found there was trouble. Rinnosuke Morichika, the owner of the shop, started acting strange and suddenly attacked her.
Reimu’s skills were no match for his newfound power, and she found herself on the ropes.
She retreated back to her home, the Hakurei Shrine. Then, with the help of the sage, Kasen Ibaraki, she headed back to Kourindo to investigate the mysterious tower that had appeared there and bring Rinnosuke back to his senses.
Now the curtains rise on a new incident to threaten Gensokyo, the battle over the Gold Sphere.
