I've had this on my wish list for a while, not to wait for a price drop, just wasn't really sure if I'd like it but it looked interesting.

I'll take this chance to grab it

Last iOS game I bought: 6/1/15

I'm in the same boat. Please leave your impressions here once you buy and play it.

I've heard a lot of good stuff about this game too but I still haven't picked it up! It does look cool though so I'll probably grab it soon.

Wowzers. This game. OMG, you guys this game... OMG. =oP

It's an AWESOME Roguelike. Every single move matters. You're able to grab 2 data siphons in each stage, with each one allowing you to grab the items in the top, left, bottom and right boxes that are touching you (as well as the box you're in). Certain boxes have different 'power-ups', but also a number representing the amount of enemies that'll spawn if you 'siphon' the box.

Each of the power ups also cost a certain amount of... I guess you could call it currency. Every square without a power up has currency that can be 'siphoned' just like the power ups but don't spawn enemies.

There's quite a few power ups to unlock, and endless replay value. It's been one of my 'go- to' games since I got it a year ago. HIGHLY recommended.

This game is fantastic. If you love roguelikes, this is one you should add to your library.

I've had a couple friends hesitate on getting this coz they didnt like the visual style of the game, but they ended up playing this off my high recommendations, and now they love it.

Great Roguelike with buckets and buckets of techno-charm.

A bit puzzling, but not as brutal as Amber Halls.

Lots of fun, I play this one at least 6-10 times a week.

It's good for both short sessions and long plays as you go back to the menu every 8 levels (keeping a running score, if you make it that far) and it state-saves perfectly.

Highly recommended by me, if that counts for anything.
