App description: Dragons, Orcs, Reapers, Oh My!

Boxy Kingdom is an endless suspenseful arcade/adventure game of pure survival, exploration and looting, and introduces an all-new type of gameplay, the Backstab move. The game is bursting full of quests, heroes, orcs, dragons, ghosts, and goblins, and tons of treasure. And if you can play Crossy Road (we love you, Hipster!), we use the same super simple controls!

Boxy Kingdom is different each time you play. You can get all 35 playable Boxy Heroes, most who add a fun new twist to the gameplay and have distinct personalities--especially the powerful Legendary heroes.

This innovative game was developed by several of the famous lead designers/creators behind Gears of War, Max Payne, Duke Nukem and Prey. Combined these games made billions commercially. Now this same talent is breaking into the mobile market with their most creative and compelling game yet, one that will define a new category of mobile adventure/looting/exploration gaming.

To play you simply tap and swipe the screen to move your character past dangers, traps, pitfalls, puzzles, and creatures of numerous types, all the while collecting as much loot as you can carry (and you can carry a LOT).You also earn gold and gems by defeating enemies with the deviously addicting backstab attack! Dispatching enemies for points and plunder has never been so fun on a mobile device!

The "Cool Stuff" List!
o You've discovered the famous Amulet, now escape with your life from the Guardian Dragon!
o Numerous unique enemies want you for dinner, like fire breathing drakes, skeletons, dividing blobs and more!
o Numerous terrain types to explore--none of it very safe, sorry!
o 35 Boxy Heroes to play, including 6 Legendary heroes with super cool abilities.
o Each character can level up to a max of 20--gaining loot with each level and a special ability at the level cap.
o Over 100 Quests to complete, each giving a sweet reward.
o Tons of humor. (Some probably cornball! Were just developers, not comedians!)
o Loot the dead bodies of your fallen friends, mythical characters, actual famous people, and the top players on the Leaderboard!
o Tons of cool gameplay tricks and secrets to discover! More than tons, in fact!
o Speed Run mode is built into the game! Seriously super speedy fun!
o We guarantee that this game is more addicting than country fried bacon.
o The amazing world of Boxy Kingdom awaits!!! Quit reading this and download it NOW its FREE!!!

Absolutely not a bad game, but it really feels like 'been there, done that the game'.

Wow! The voxel graphics and lighting effects look really really good!

Lots of characters with different skills and animations, and good voice acting too. I instantly bought "Mindy Jones" after trying her!

Great "crossy road" model, with no timers and no forced ads. Simple gameplay, perfect for quick sessions, and the looting is so satisfying!

This certainly deserves more attention!

Well I like this. Like it better than looty dungeon, skeletomb, or Crossy heroes personally.

Heya, Matt from Hipster Whale here.

Boxy Kingdom is awesome and we've been fortunate to have played the build throughout development.

We love what the team is done and the things they've implemented and you ALL should play this one ... a lot

Agree.
Different skills and animation is always clever for more replay value. And important (for some) to mention: you get a separate leaderboard with 1 life!
Thanks for this rare species, Devs.
I bought (my not needed) Heart doubler due to that.

@Devs
Some of the screenies seem to have the resolution i'd like to see in the actual game. It looks a bit too blurry for my old eyes. Should i reinstall the game?

Well, if Hipster Whale blesses this game...
I'd like different fonts and coins, though: they seem ripped from Crossy Road.

It actually looks and plays exactly like a HW game, but it's great to have them supporting it. A lot of talent worked on this one.
The CR formula is becoming the next match-3 and people are over doing it but this one is good.
Lighting effects are fantastic. Controls are great.

I was a little confused at first but it looks like you're not allowed to attack enemies from the side.

I like this much better than Quest Keeper.

I love these good offshoots of CR. Haven't played this a ton, but it seems you can level up your individual characters which is very cool - what that does for you I'm not sure, but I'm excited to find out!

I'll join Qwertz and support the game with the coin doubler - if I run across a heart doubler I'll grab that too. Also, good point about the separate leaderboards; very good choice to keep them separate (If you want to sneak in some GC achievements I won't object).

Great job devs!!!
