Desktop Dungeons is a quick-play, roguelike-like puzzle game that gives you 10-20 minutes of dungeon-crawling action per serving. Casual players can enjoy endless coffee-break gaming sessions in infinitely random dungeons, while hardcore enthusiasts can unearth the game’s subtleties and tackle challenges of unrealistic viciousness. Down all paths lies frequent death, easy accessibility and the urge to play just one more dungeon.

I am so looking forward to this one. I logged quite a bit of time on the free PC version.

What the heck! This is a surprise! This game is really liked or loved by Steam gamers.

Will it be only iPad, or also iPhones?
The upper pic with the thief looks as if it is for iPhones.

Anyway, this is a game you can play for years.

Considering how gloriously low-resolution this game is, I should think it would be well playable on both iPhone and iPad. Really it should work on anything iPhone 4 and up (and whatever the equivalent iPad generations are). It is really a fantastic game, and the graphics make me feel so happy inside. I hope people who aren't as old as I am can still appreciate it.

Did I mention it's a fantastic game?

Anyway, it has been years and years, and still no iOS release. It's baffling, because I feel like this game could, should and would do really well on iOS. It deserves to. But I want it!

The way they have their infrastructure set up, it is currently playable on Web and on Steam (and off Steam I think, too), and your saves are available across platforms. One would think this would carry over to iOS and Android releases so that you could play it on whatever platforms you wish and still have all your save data available to you as long as you can connect and get your save.

As someone said above, this is a game you can play for years.

Anyway, I don't know what the hiccups or hold-up is, but I would really like it on my iPad and iPhone.

Mostly we've been working on optimizing the game so that it runs smoothly on iOS. We're also putting a lot of effort into making the controls feel good on a touch device - there's some reorganizing that's being done to gods and how the combat interface works.

Plus we're adding some new content as well

Oh, hi! Well, I hope you don't change how gloriously low-res the visuals are. They will look absolutely awesome on iPads and iPhones alike!!!! And I hope you'll keep it so that the Steam, web and iOS versions can all still link up. But I know whatever we end up with, it's going to be awesome. Perfect for on the go play, too.

Any rough idea of a release date, or is that top secret? Thanks for an awesome game!
