Amber Halls (by Axaxaxas)

Hi,

My new game, Amber Halls, will be out in the App Store in March 13.

It is a roguelike with no IAPs and no ads :-)



About the Game

Amber Halls is a palace filled with ancient artifacts and treasures. Dangerous monsters wander through the halls. But, with the help of powerful items, you'll be able to outsmart them. However, carrying items from room to room will prove very challenging.

Amber Halls is a tiny roguelike. If you like strategy and puzzles, you are going to love this game.

Features

- Randomly generated levels
- Original mechanics that will surprise you
- Daily Quest! A new map every day, the same for all players. Compete in the daily leaderboards!

Hi!

The game will be at $.99 during launch week.

I can't wait for people to compete in the Daily Quest leaderboards :-P

If you like roguelikes, you really should consider checking out PC gaming, The wealth and diversity of roguelikes, rogue-lites, and games with roguelike elements is astounding

Actually this month, there's going to be two simultaneous game jams:
The 7 Day Roguelike Challenge
Procedural Death Jam

And I'm sure at least some of those will eventually find their way to IOS eventually.

Edit: since you're into game development, have you participated in a game jam yet? If you're interested, I could PM you another cool one that going on now

I will make a game for the 7drl, which means I will be hard at work when Amber Halls comes out.

If I succeed and the game turns out to be good enough, I will definitely consider releasing an iOS version.

Saldy, my game development is pretty much dead since I need a Mac for the final part of XCode (having a connected device which is impossible doing it on the Cloud and making an executable afterwards which is impossible if you dont test it first. Construct 2 only compiles for testing devices not the emulator )... until I buy one, and that can take a while.

And as for the PC, I looked at FTL and I was so close to buy it... but then I remembered that I have way too many games to play on my iPhone, PlayStation´s Battlefield 4 and on top of that PC gaming too? Maybe too much. I will stay dedicated to iPhone a long as this rate of awesome games keep coming in... and it has been 3 years non-stop, I doubt it will stop soon. Thanks either way.
