I appreciate the attempt and loved the colorful text descriptions, but there doesn't appear to be any end of game score, an inventory system, nor even a clear way to wait a turn without moving.

Lastly there is supposedly an option to SHOW the tap zones (as which part of the screen will register for the various diagonals is far from clear), but I couldn't see any markings to this effect.

I gave it a shot just now. It's alright I guess, at least while free. By my third or fourth game though, I realised there weren't going to be any new descriptions upon restarting, nor anything particularly interesting happening gameplay wise, and the experience quickly deteriorated into mindless, rapid tapping against the next menacing "K" or "H."

Yeah it's extremely minimal as far as roguelikes go, even on iOS. There are just far better examples out there for free or cheap, with nothing to give this one an edge.
