Not really polished. Maybe can have some potential down the road.

It's only .99 for gods sake i dunno, if I see something this cool it's an Insta buy personally. Especially at this price and I love games like this. I discovered it in the App Store last night before bed and it's pretty fun. it is an explore survive type game where you collect resources and craft stuff with perma death. I would love to see a female character but that's my only suggestion. Some people might find it a little hard there are tons of enemies especially around the rocky areas where you need to mine for ore. And since you can't make any weapons without said ore that's a little tricky. Maybe an easy mode would be a good idea for a future update.

The menus and options still list under construction. It doesn't matter how cheap it is. It's not a finished product, it lacks balance and needs a little more polish. It does have potential, but to me it isn't acceptable to release something in this state.

Can't recall the name, but this look like an exact copy of a game that came out about 2 years ago.

The game is to simple and it doesnt feel fun. You should ONLY buy this if you really like indies snd want a relaxing survival arcady simulator thats as simple as it can get. This game will last you at most 1 hour then theres nothing left from it.

This is one of the very few sandbox roguelikes on the App Store, a category **sorely** missing on iOS, even if this one isn't particularly deep right now. I've been hunting for more like it on this platform for years now. RLs are all I've been playing a while, but for me the pinnacle is goal-less sandbox RLs. The challenge is up to you. As easy or as hard as you like depending on how you're feeling. All with permadeath to make your choices matter.

I find it a shocking coincidence that this has come at the same time as Cataclysm DDA, the grand daddy of them all, which is supposedly going to hit the App Store sometime this week.

Currently having problems downloading this though. The circle spins for a second and then re-displays the price. I'm never prompted to authorise the transaction.

Edit - working now. First impressions is pretty much what I was expecting from the screenshots. Very rough. Virtual joystick controls, poor button placement. Poor font choices. Don't expect excellence in UX design here. Haven't played enough to get a feel of the game mechanics.

I do like supporting indie devs and who knows what a few updates will bring ? It may be that this is not your cup of tea but I have already enjoyed it for over an hour myself
