This is the best roguelike I've played on the app store. It's brutally difficult and you need a fair share of both strategy and luck to hope to survive. The theme is interesting as well and all the yokai play differently, so lots of replay value. Definitely worth the cost if you like a good challenging roguelike.
Wow, Kemco really picked the right developer here. Game has refreshing lore for a rogue-like, challenging gameplay and we are getting updates now and then! More rogue-likes, Kemco!
A hard, challenging game, as a roguelike should be. Each class has wildly different abilities and ways of playing, and it takes skill and honestly a good amount of luck to get through the dungeons. The japanese lore behind gives it a refreshing air, and I've found it hard to not be glued to the game, trying to improve!! So far, I'm really enjoying the tricky ways of a Nekomata, and I can't wait to try out more! The developer responds to issues and implements new features quickly, and this has blown other games out of the water to me. It's been worth the money and I can't wait to see what more comes to it!
I don't usually make the effort to write reviews but I feel compelled to show my support for this little gem. This is your typical easy to learn difficult to master type game, a furiously difficult roguelike with more soul than is usual for this genre. Well worth the price!
Brutal roguelike with a nice retro aesthetic. Still trying to figure out how to unlock a character... That could be a little better explained. Worth checking out nonetheless.
Love roguelikes, but unsure why this game was rated so highly. Makes sense no free trial is available, because the few of us who purchased it probably wouldn't have had we been able to try it first. It's an admirable effort for someone's first game, but there are way, WAY better roguelikes out there that are 100% free with no ads that operate on an optional donation model. (e.g. Shattered Pixel Dungeon) Yodanji has weaker mechanics, visuals, and overall gameplay. When comparing it to what feels like a more honest approach from alternatives, it's hard not to feel a bit scammed by the forced purchase to try it out. With about 100 "purchases" at this time of writing, it makes sense the first few are so positive from the game's creators and circle of friends. I don't enjoy leaving harsh reviews, but feel compelled to get some honest reviews out there for others considering purchasing. If Yodanji's developers want to ease their guilt, I suggest offering a free trial with an option to activate additional features via purchase.
