While a few things are better than in Rogue Legacy 1, like being able binding mouse4 and 5, they also introduced a whole lot of worse things. Now you pogo-jump by a dedicated button/down and jump. That's right, not attack, jump.. They also increased the difficulty ten-fold. Starting area has one-time collapsing platforms and rotating spinner traps while also having to dodge 3-4 ranged mob attacks.. They added souls, bars, and blood as ..currency?, on top of money. Double-jump is now only available from area 3! Facing cursor could be good, though I don't use it, but I'm not able to hide it and it's distracting then. The small in-area teleporters don't tell you where they go, and you easily lose your way. They removed being able to talk to chars and open chests with up-key. You now have a dedicated button for it.. Some screens can only be exited by Escape, having you move your hand away from WASD.

Gameplay, gameplay.. It's Rogue Legacy. An action-platformer with a rogue-lite spin. Which is a brief description you'll find of it anywhere.
Anything more specific than just "gameplay"?
You jump up/down platforms, you fight monsters, you find blueprints for weapons/armors. You do some challenge rooms.

Yes. You do that in many games. In some games it's fun, and in some games it isn't.
Is doing that fun in this game?
