I haven't tried it yet but it's actually the first time I've heard of it. I'm a roguelike whore so I'll always enjoy it, hopefully the others on here will see this

I've owned it since release day, although I don't have the HD version so I'll grab that for sure.

It reminds me of fargoal, but honestly I couldn't get into it and only ever played it for a few hours.

I'd be wary of this as most if eggcode's stuff has been going freemuiem (Armed Conflict, Days of war, etc.)

It's admium... Which I don't mind as much as freemium but still sucks for anyone that ever supported this company with a purchase to suddenly have banner ads always show when you play. :|

Still, the game pretty good so far.

Sad to see a lot of game going this route.

Just more garbage kindly showcasing what it really is. Though, I'd be more than a little furious to have purchased a game and see it go freemium afterwards; I believe a refund is justly deserved in those cases.

Anyway, how is this actually? With the dearth of rogue-like's on iOS, most being awful clones and n'th repeated dungeon dives, does this stand much comparison? I'm really looking for this scene to pick-up into something more than shamshod game development.

Incursion, DoomRL, Dwarf Fortress, Liberal Crime Squad... for a genre so accomdating to new ideas and settings due to such easy implementation, it's awfully stagnant on iOS.

I shouldn't have removed my non-HD version of the game, now I guess I'm stuck with ads in my paid copy.

I wonder if/when apple will ever be able to prevent this from happening. They should offer a function, built-in Itunes, to revert to a previous version of an app. Otherwise, developers will keep doing it if they can get away with it.

They should always provide a way for those who previously paid to retain the correct version of their app, but most don't care; it's like a last-ditch effort to cash in on their previous work.

One of mobile gaming's most infuriating trends, IMO.

Wow, a roguelike I don't own or haven't heard of? Nice heads up PeteOzzy!
