Dinofarm Games - creators of 100 Rogues - are pleased to present the critically-acclaimed Auro: A Monster-Bumping Adventure.

TouchArcade ***** - "Auro is one of the rare games in this genre that should please both beginners and experts alike."

Pocket Tactics ***** - "It wants you to see how clever it is, and to show you how clever you are."

Auro introduces a whole new kind of gameplay: Bumping! What's that? Why, it's the strategic use of movement, magic spells, and straight-up bumping to kill monsters to gain points, and become a master Bumper!

Set in an original fantasy universe, guide the brash, spoiled Prince Auro through procedurally generated dungeons, with only a handful of tactical spells - and your wits - to protect you.

Face a variety of monsters, each with their own cool tactical abilities, and then when they least expect it - give 'em a healthy bump - STRAIGHT INTO THE DRINK!

I'd love to hear some impressions on this. Though I like the art, after watching the trailer I couldn't really tell much about it besides seeing monsters being knocked off over the edges.

I was in the beta so I can't give in-depth impressions as they might not be accurate but I'll do my best. There's little point denying the Hoplite comparison even though I was beta testing this when it released but it's a good one to make as there's the same kind of strategy and punishment for mistakes in this.

It's much more forgiving at the same time though and because it's a structured adventure there's more in the way of variety and potential longevity. I still love Hoplite more if I'm brutally honest but to be fair Auro was constantly updating and changing so I haven't seen the finished product in the way it's meant to be seen.

I'm not hesitating to buy this at full price and I don't have any problems recommending it.

For anyone on the fence, Pocket Gamer rated this a 9/10 on Android a while ago.
