Loop Hero is a great “I want to watch YouTube and have something to fiddle with” game.
The art is amazing, the detail on the pixel art is just wonderful. The music is great and the sound effect are fun. It is a very good retro-style game in this sense.
The game does feel a little too grindy. I understand that Rogue-lites can to be that way, but you need to play so many rounds to unlock the River, for example. This is simplified by learning to farm certain creatures, such as the spiders, near your campfire once you upgrade your watchtowers. The bosses are really difficult, so this is not a game for someone looking for an “easy steamroll” - although some good runs certainly do happen.
All in all Loop Hero is certainly a fun game, but the grind factor is real. Because of the grind this is much better suited as a game to play while spacing out during other activities.
