Undercroft brings the atmosphere of old-school RPG dungeons like Eye of the Beholder and Dungeon Master to your iPhone and iPod touch. Undercroft was originally released for pocket pc, but the iPhone version comes with completely redone interface optimized for iPhone and enhanced gameplay with many new features not included in the original version.

Players lead a party of adventurers through haunted tombs, deep forests, fiery pits or snowy mountains. They fight hordes of beasts and magical creatures, solve mysterious riddles and fulfil dozens of tasks in adventure-game style.

Features:
- Create your own party of four heroes, or let the game create random party for quick play.
- 5 classes: warriors, mages, priests, summoners and assassins.
- Automap.
- 30+ hours of gameplay with great replay value.
- More than 700 items.


*** Betatesting ***

UPDATE: We have enough iPhone betatesters now, thanks to all for support!

Right now we are looking for betatesters. We would like to find from 5 to 10 betatesters, who will help us to polish the game. But before contacting us, please note that we are looking for dungeons RPG fans, who are able to test core gameplay, ideally somebody who has experience with old school RPGs like EOB, Dungeon Master or similar title We are not looking for testers, who will play for 20 minutes and then tell us that the the game is good/bad.

We want each tester to select some party combination so we can compare how the game is playable with different classes. The betatesting will be organized on Rake in Grass forums, so each tester will be able to see bugs reported by other testers etc. We expect betatesting to be finished withing two weeks, so the game can be prepared for release at the end of September. If you want to participate, please write me PM.


*** Video and screenshots ****

This video was grabbed from the developer's version on PC because we had problems with video quality of our camera when playing on device, but the game plays the same on the device:

PM sent.

Anyone else here play Eye of the Beholder or Dungeon Master II on the Sega CD?

Think I've managed to play Eye of the Beholder on 4 platforms now, PC, Sega CD, SNES and GBA. GBA version is the most different with battles played out tactically...

This looks great! I played EoB2 and Wizardry 8 on PC and would absolutely love to have a similar game for my iTouch. Would love to beta-test it too, I have some free time in the next couple of weeks.

Favorites: Puzzle Quest, The Quest, Sway, Glyder, Reign of Swords, Flight of the Amazon Queen

This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.
