The developers of Legends of Yore themselves have defined it as a casual roguelike, which would normally be absurd and contradictory, but seems to be pretty accurate in this case. This is because, apart from the usual difficulties in the genre, you can also find some elements that make it easier.
Basically, Legends of Yore can be controlled almost exclusively with the mouse, and when you die, instead of losing the character as usual, you can simply choose to lose some experience or objects in your inventory and keep going.
Legends of Yore is a really entertaining roguelike. Although it has pixelated graphics with no animations (characters move without gesturing), it's still appealing thanks to an addictive and slightly more permissive gameplay than the norm.
