‘Rounds’ Is A Ridiculous Multiplayer Roguelike With A Ruthless Twist

Generally speaking, roguelike games are single-player experiences. However, Rounds is a game that transforms your human competitor into a ruthless roguelike enemy.

If you’re familiar with the concept of a roguelike, then you’ll be aware that through death, players can gain the strength needed to succeed. In Rounds, your defeat at the hands of an enemy player allows you to level up. Ultimately, this means that either you or your opponent will come back stronger each round, resulting in a chaotic combat crescendo. Here’s a Steam synopsis for the roguelike PvP shooter:

“Rounds is a 1v1 rogue-lite shooter where each round gets more intense. The losing player of each round unlocks clever upgrades to create a better build to counter their opponent.

While Rounds sounds like an unforgiving multiplayer experience, the game’s circular characters look like something from a Cartoon Network show. Better still, players can customise their round characters’ faces, meaning your foe will have to look into your unique eyes as you gun them down. Talk about cold!
