The Crystal Catacombs (Crescent Moon)

This NES style adventure game (homage to Metroid and Castlevania) with RPG elements, is coming to iOS next Spring. Its developed by Levels or Lives.

Crystal Catacombs is an exploration based action platformer that incorporates challenging roguelike mechanics combined within a multitude of unique and unpredictable procedurally generated (random) dungeons.

The game includes dozens of different items, weapons, spells, enemies and bosses. It will also feature a customizable inventory and a stat based character upgrade system.


Procedurally generated dungeons with randomly chosen room layouts, enemies, special items, treasures and even bosses. No two experiences will ever be the same.

-Seven different Crystal Realms (levels) to explore. Each with their own unique enemies, traps, hazards, treasures and bosses.

-Encounter and fight over 20 different bosses and dozens of varying enemies.

-Discover over 20 Magical Artifacts that can be equipped and used to grant new abilities, such as a the Double Jump Boot, Dragon Armor, Crystal Skull and Grapple Spikes.

-Collect and choose from several different weapon classes including swords, whips, axes and bows. Each class also has different variations of each weapon type.

-Unleash an assortment of powerful magic spells ranging from fireballs to summoning powerful creatures to help aid you in battle.

-Gain experience points to level up and ultimately become a force of glorified and unadulterated power!



I'll be updating this thread with more info soon!
