App description: ***Cross platform saves! Play the same Kingdom on any device!***

Desktop Dungeons, the award-winning unique puzzle roguelike makes its debut on iOS! Fight your way through randomly generated dungeons, collect spells, items, and loot to defeat the dungeon boss and earn gold to upgrade your Kingdom. Unlock new classes to play as, useful items to discover, capricious gods to worship, and enemies to fight. All in service of the almighty bottom line and saving your Kingdom from peril.

Desktop Dungeons packs all the challenge and reward of a dungeon crawling roguelike game into bite sized chunks of puzzle goodness. Take an Elf Warlord through the Venture Cave, defeat Aequitas the Warlock and sell his beard to your Taxidermist to afford an upgrade to your Blacksmith. Or, spend time in the game's extensive puzzles trying to understand exactly what worshipping Taurog is all about.

Key Features:
-Randomly generated single-screen dungeons offer bite sized adventure.
-Explore new terrain to regenerate your health and mana, INNOVATION!
-20 Classes to play as and unlock, including the new Chemist and Rat Monarch!
-7 Races that combine uniquely with the Classes, each playing differently.
-Upgrade your Kingdom to unlock items and preparations to start your dungeon runs with.
-Loads of quests and puzzles to keep you entertained for hundreds of hours.
-Compete with your friends in the new Daily Dungeon.
-Music by the power duo of Danny Baranowsky (Super Meat Boy, Binding of Isaac) and Grant Kirkhope (Banjo Kazooie, Goldeneye 64)
-The full Desktop Dungeons experience, optimized for touch screen.
-Goats!

"If you're looking for a roguelike with a cheeky swagger, and enough content to lose yourself in, then this should be at the top of your list." - PocketGamer (9/10)

"Desktop Dungeons is brilliant. It is so incredibly simple, and so incredibly basic, and yet it is brilliant." - GameZebo (4.5/5)

"Desktop Dungeons has made a pretty great effort to port their game to the iOS world, and it packs a lot of replay and problem solving into this app." - TouchArcade (4/5)

Desktop Dungeons won the award for Excellence in Design at the 2011 Independent Games Festival, where it was also a Grand Prize nominee.

Most definitely. This is one of my all-time favourite games on PC, it's going to be amazing playing this on the go - though it does mean the end of all other games for me for some time!

For those that don't know this one, it's a really tough roguelike with almost a puzzle feel. You really have to think every fight through, weigh up the risks and gains. Even using a single spell or moving to a new tile can change the balance dramatically. There's so much more to it than just plain rogueliking too, with the extra modes and city development that unlocks new classes etc.

Oh and there's so much to do! Can't wait to see how well this goes down

Very nearly the only oasis in the freemium desert this week, looking forward to impressions from first time players like myself.
