Wonderful, worth it! Nothing quite comes close to a more relaxed, strategic rogue on Android. A lot of personality and charm, and tons of replay value. If I had to come up with a reason for 4 instead of 5 stars, it would be the fact that the content, while great, feels somewhat lacking late-game. An update with new stuff would be tremendously appreciated, but on it's own, the game is terrific and worth the price. No IAP and one of Android's truly unique games that isn't a clone or cash-in on something else. WHY can't we have more like this? A solid, "true" game that stands on its own merit, like any major PC or console game. For every one of these, there are 50,000 IAP shovelware piles of garbage.
Great concept, fun for a few hours. Overall a fun design, but it doesn't have much staying power once you realize there's no actual danger. Monsters can't move from the spot they start at or initiate attacks, so essentially there's 0 threat or risk of death. If you have wings, (and 99.9% of the time you will), you're essentially immortal unless you do a poor job of watching your health. You just warp out before you die, then go repeat everything again hoping to get a little further. Add in more of a challenge and I'd buy the next one :)
WOW, all I can say is wow... Best dungeon crawler I have found. First off easy to follow instructions. Great music tracks and sound effects. The developer keeps the character development simple with some min/max capabilities. Spelling and grammar are correct... for the limited dialogue. Your replay-ability is there for hours and hours of grinding. Enjoyable experience without frustrating min/max calculating. Great game top of my list has bumped other dungeon crawlers off my list of gaming time. NO IN GAME APP PURCHASES..... Keep up the great work Dustin!
Definitely worth it If you like rogue-likes, you'll love this game. I was originally introduced to it via Kongregate. I enjoyed it so much, I checked it out for the mobile. Initially, I wasn't sure if it'd be worth the price, but oh, it so was. The gameplay is simplistic and easy to learn, while still providing a challenge the deeper you go. I especially loved finding the storyline hiding under it all, and how it subtly affects the gameplay. This is a game I wish I could type more about. Do yourself a favor and grab this game.
Excellent Had initial crash issue solved by deleting 100 hours of video of the inside of my pocket. Lol. Loved it on kongragate. Love it even more as an app.
It's such an amazingly good mobile game. Very well made and super fun. Heck, Grant Kirkhope did the music. It's just a shame more people don't know about it. If you are one of the lucky individuals to happen upon this game, buy it immediately!
Fixed occasional crash when clicking off of the edit hotkey window
Fixed crash when using wings during pickaxe/telekinesis mode
Fixed stairs shortcut showing at incorrect times after running from battle
Fixed battle attack and run away time inconsistencies between slow and fast
Clicking off of some windows will now close them
