Wazhack: a sidescrolling roguelike

Wazhack is different from the standard roguelikes: it's a sidescrolling one. With decent graphics, kinda turn based and permadeath, it's a very interesting one.

It's free to try, but you need to unlock the full game via IAP (3$).



With 300 different types of items to be found, you will keep finding novel ways to deal with the 130 different types of monsters you will face on your journey! You have time to think, but this is no puzzler - you will have to use your weapons as much as your inventory.
The procedurally-generated dungeon and vast array of possible items gives immense replay value. Some games you'll find a good weapon early, other times you'll rely on wands or potions, or some combination. Sometimes in sheer desperation you'll read a random unidentified scroll... will it be a scroll of fire that incinerates your clothes? Will it be a blessed scroll of teleportation for the ultimate escape?

If you have every played NetHack, DCSS, etc, this game will show you a whole new form of the "roguelike" genre.

This game is as much about the journey as the destination. You will die frequently, but you will learn tricks that will help your next valiant attempt until you one day conquer the dungeon!

When you get good enough to survive to 300feet, you will be asked to upgrade for about $3 to get full access to the dungeon. This one-off purchase is done so that you can experience the game and how confirm well it performs on your device before purchasing.

Waz develops this game as a full-time job (albeit a very fun one), so you can expect bugs to be fixed promptly and new releases, with more items and monsters to explore.
