Powder is an incredibly well designed rouge like game for the Game Boy Advance (GBA). The game was designed from scratch with it trying to recreate the rougelike style of a game that would effectively work on the GBA.
The developer created Powder for one reason, and that was to successfully create a Rouglike game for his GBA. There was a big lack of any real rouge like style games for the console, while there was a plethora of excellent RPG’s, there was none that had that hack and slash style of a rouge like.
From that, Powder was born, and it has become and incredibly well polished rougelike game that boats great replayability, great gameplay and is all round just a fantastic game. It showcases how well a homebrew game can be.
