App description: "If you're looking to get started within the realm of roguelikes, this whimsical title could be a fantastic entry ticket." - 148 Apps

One of the most compelling and addictive iOS games I've played in years Pixelated Paradise

"Card Dungeon is a bizarre mash-up of genres that works better than I'd expected. It's more about dungeon exploration than card collection, but it manages to make both quite entertaining." - Pocket Gamer UK

""A highly addicting mix of genres that ticks all the right boxes" - Games Finder

Take control of Crusader and free the lands from the hordes of the Nethermist in this turn based strategy rogue. Card Dungeon is a completely unique and handcrafted board / card /rogue-like game experience unlike anything you have played before. Easy to pick up and play for 10 minutes, but has enough depth and strategy that you will still be playing after multiple hours.

You can only do 1 thing / turn. Choose wisely.

When the game starts you are dealt three cards. The cards are used for attacks, defense, health, magic, summoning and much more. When the player defeats a monster or opens a chest, a new card may be revealed. The user then has to decide if they want to keep their current card or switch it to the new one. Progress through the levels as far as you can. When you die, you restart at the beginning. If you make it back to where you died, you get all your cards and money back.
No IAP. No in game ads. No internet required. Buy it once and get the full game as it should be.


Full 3D. Rotate, zoom and pan across gorgeous board game tiles.
Discover and equip over 1,000 cards.
Each play through genuinely unique as you transition from playing a hard hitting warrior to a summoning wizard to a trap laying rogue, etc, etc, etc. Dozens of combinations await you!
Randomly generated levels with hand placed creatures.
No defined player classes. The cards define your class!
Discover armor and weapon cards that help define who Your Crusader is this run.
Unlock trait cards which modify how Crusader acts in game. Play a cowardly, but strong Crusader. Next time play a Crusader strong with magic, but one that keeps losing money.
Record short video clips and upload your achievements and rare card finds for your friends to see. You can even record commentary directly from inside the game (requires use of camera and microphone).
21 levels packed with 40+ monsters, each with their own unique skills for Crusader to overcome.
Unique and beautiful artwork
Original score by Ian Dorsch

*Compatible with the iPhone 4S and up, the iPad 2 and up, the iPad mini and the fifth-generation iPod touch.

This is almost definitely an accidental release unfortunately but some people may be able to get there quickly if you're interested in it enough to buy into an early build.

Early release or not, it looks great! However, with so many games to play, I will wait until this app settles in for a long stay.

It's a roguelike boardgame combination so certainly some heavy draws from D&D. Probably best to check their website for the official word on it though:


I've been following this one for a while now, it's bordering dangerously close on my "dream" game.

Whoops! Yeaaah... Hrrm. Ok, that wasn't supposed to happen yet. Basically what happened was that we forgot to push the date up, on the App Store, to our expected release date on October 1st.

If you did manage to get a copy, it's very much playable, but you might see a few bugs here and there. We are spending this month fixing said bugs so you can have a better experience.

Sorry about this, but expect to see more of Card Dungeon in a few weeks!

Thanks for your interest, everybody!

I'm glad I was prepared for it being too good to be true then!

Still, it looks fantastic and very promising if that's an early build. I can see a lot of people getting very excited for this!

At launch it will be single player only. We have plans for some interesting multiplayer features down the road, though.

If you have any questions I'll be in and out of this thread all day.
