App description: ULTIMATE DUNGEONS, ENDLESS ADVENTURE!
Mystic Castle is a game full of adventure in dungeons, which is mixed with Simulation and role-playing elements.

:::: Game Features ::::
·80+ classes, thousands of team combo
·12 maps, 500+ areas/dungeons, constantly updated
·Fun city building, brain-twisting resources production
·Simple but elaborately designed graphics
·Immersed text-based storyline
·Easy-to-control but eye-catching battles
·Rich random events, hundreds of achievements for you to compete in Game Center

As its name implies, the player who runs into the dark dungeon full of unknown danger will act as an alchemist to step on an adventurous journey and try every effect to survive. You shall gather resources, assign appropriate farmers of different roles, build structures and produce enough supplies to build your own underworld city, and then train warriors and go out to the wild for adventure where you will face various weired creatures, conquer multi-layer strongholds or revive dead heroes to serve you. There are 10 maps and totally 500+ areas to go in, and more maps can be unlocked by purchasing the in-game expansion packs.

It also integrates many interesting random events for you to enjoy different fun, such as gambling with incoming visitors, lending money to a tramp for uncertain future refund, or learning skills from a tutor with a high pay.

Wanna be a hero? Just rush into the dungeon and earn your fame in the endless adventure.

Enjoy it and have fun !!

Wrath's comments:
Couldn't find a thread for this game, but if there is one already, please feel free to close this one and direct me to the other one....

Anyway, just wanted to see if there are other games similar in style/genre that people could recommend? I find that I am actually quite enjoying the managing of resources by swiping left and right and upgrading, training, etc (which I'm not sure why the developer doesn't show screenshots for which are more appealing than the artwork used for the App Store) all while having an underlying text-driven story line going on.

Not sure what genre this type of game is classified as, however, but I feel like there must be other similar games out there I can explore.

Wrath, can you tell me if this is a text-only adventure, or is there actual dungeon crawling with maps, etc.? I'm not really fond of the story-book games so want to know before I purchase this. thanks

Also, still showing .99 in the App store.

Looks very like A dark room in my initial interaction with it.

So far, it's been text only - not sure if that will change at all once I send out people to explore the castle or not - I'm still at the point of resource gathering (resources, materials, buildings, training troops, etc).

I bought the game yesterday at $.99 and then it appears it went on sale for free today, but not sure if that was temporary price reduction or not.

Thanks. Let me know what you find out..I'd be willing to buy it if it turns into a "real" dungeon, so to speak.

This game is a rip off the app description leads you to believe that the only IAP are extra dungeons but this is a f2p in disguise. You have to buy diamonds and there are tons of other purchases including the scrolls you need to return to town from the dungeons. Another purchase is a special unit for 300 diamonds (three bucks) that is one time use. The guy dies it's over. Oh yeah you can bring him back to life in the cemetery with karma no idea how to get that my guess... More diamonds. If you pay three bucks for a unit you should be able to use it as often as you like. I wasted ten bucks on this game trust me it's not worth it.

@nellie the game is mostly resource clicking like in a dark room the enemy encounters in the dungeons are simple turn based combat,traveling the dungeon is just clicking on various points on a map to travel to areas.

Not a fan of buying perishable items in games but the Dark Room mechanics intrigue me. I have no problem putting money down on some stuff to support the efforts that went into the game but I won't be sucked dry just for progression or a treadmill. I will give it a shot but if I smell pay for progression I am moving on.

Well, I've been playing casually for a couple of days now - still no prompts popping up for IAP so I guess I haven't progressed as far as you did. Even when I went to check out resurrecting a dead unit and did not have enough karma, it didn't prompt to purchase anything - it appears from my experience thus far that they stay there until you obtain enough karma if you want - but I don't know if that's the case for the two units available for purchase (the frost dragon or the dragonkin). (FYI - you obtain karma by capturing a statute and when you visit it again you can collect karma from it. I've also been able to gather portal scrolls on the map, so haven't been prompted to purchase any of those yet.) The in-app purchases I see include 3 diff expansion packs, 3 diff productivity boosts, 2 diff coin packs, 2 diff units and a portal scroll pack - - but again, nothing required, from what I can tell.
