Streets of Rogue is an incredible rogue game that allows you to complete missions through a variety of different methods. If you haven’t read my review yet about the game, you can check it out here!
The game can definitely be very challenging to make it through to the end, especially if you are trying to go for a character’s unique mission. In this article I am going to talk about some of the tips I’ve found most useful in my 150+ hours of gameplay!
I hired a thief to unlock the door and used an item called Blindenizer that temporarily reduces all NPC’s sight!
This may seem like an obvious tip, but it is funny how often it is forgotten. Instead of running into a building with several enemies and traps at the risk of dying, simply hire someone and have them take care of the task for you. Of course, one hired person may not be able to take on the whole building, but if you are smart you can have them do specific things like take out the computer so that all the traps get shut off. Different NPC’s offer different services when hired! Some of the people you can hire include:
Paying a scientist to identify two of my syringes
Syringes are items in this game that can have many different effects, ranging from invisibility to sulfuric acid. You cannot tell what effect syringes have unless you have a specific trait or have already used the same type of syringe.
Now this is a simple one but can save your run. If you have an unknown syringe there are a couple different methods that work well for discovering what it is. The easiest way is to simply pay a scientist to analyze it for you, you will then be able to view what effect is has!
But if your saving your money you can simply test the syringe on a vent system. That will then spread the effects throughout the building and affect anyone who runs through the syringe clouds. This can be super useful if it turns out to be something like Poison or Sulfuric acid, but very disappointing if you end up wasting something like invincibility. You can also test them in lake that have a filter in the Parks, this is great for helpful syringes as you can use them multiple times by hopping in the water when the effects wear off. However, this means NPC’s can also jump into the pond and get the effect!
Another third option is if you want to test them on yourself, make sure to do it by a toilet! Any toilets in the game will allow you to purge your current status affects, which can be extremely useful. However, be careful, if you have an effect like resurrection it will also be removed!
Just like in the real world, money makes your playthrough much easier. Allowing you to pay off the cops, hire help, purchases items for missions and so much more! There are many ways to make money, such as:
