Rogue Touch - Thanksgiving $0.99 sale :)




**********************************************


Anyone new here that missed out on the dungeon crawler fun, or is looking for a way to kill some time while waiting for Sword of Fargoal to get approved, here's your chance to download Rogue Touch cheap! I have followed the "Black Friday" trend, and will keep it on sale through the weekend.

Hopefully everyone here has a happy thanksgiving, and if you're not in the USA, go ahead and have a nice meal tomorrow anyway

PS- Anyone who is unfamiliar with Rogue, you can get some help in my forums (check the link in my sig) or ask here, lots of people should be able to help... I will personally answer questions in the morning, as it's time for me to have a drink or two and hit the sack

Totally forgot about this game... now I'll need to go back and play it again For $0.99 I still highly recommend this if you like old-fashion dungeon crawlers.

Ah man I keep getting tempted to buy this but the text hurts my eyes after a while, I can't read small text unless it's a pixel font (like the "ZZZZ..." in the pictures)... the blurriness makes me strain

Since it is on sale for 99 cents, maybe you could use the extra $2 and buy a pair of cheap eyeglasses?

I have glasses already (optional, never wear 'em) but they're for distance, everything up close is crystal clear but apparently that makes no difference when it comes to small blurry text

Actually you'd be surprised how playable it is without reading the scrolling text. That was part of the reason I added the various lightweight animations for attacks (hits and dodges) as well as traps. Funny note- over 40% of my players do not speak or read English

I suppose you mean natively? Or do they not speak or read English at all - how do you know that
You can't judge by the customer data, here in Finland nearly everyone less than 50 years old has studied 6 years of English during grade school.

Anyway, I hate games with small text or graphics too (Puzzle Quest is painful), but have no problem with Rogue Touch.

You are absolutely correct, but I do actually have some hard data on Japan. As it turns out they really like roguelikes and RPGs (as if there was any doubt), but a number of people there that play Rogue Touch use an old fan translation of the original Rogue items in Japanese. Found this out from a nice guy there who ran a blog with a lot of Rogue Touch info on it!

Funny world- in America you have people importing Japanese games and using fan translations, comparing symbols and stuff to figure out what is what. Now they are doing the same thing with my game

My next game will be pre-translated into multiple languages to be sure that everyone can enjoy it to the fullest

PS- If you want to assist with Finnish translations, please send me a PM!

If anyone who likes RPG / roguelikes hasn't already purchased this game, you'd be nuts not to buy it now. Easily my most played app and one that will always stay in my iphone.
