Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Anyone who loves Choose Your Own Adventure books should grab Fighting Fantasy: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain ASAP - you won't be disappointed!

As for Dungeons & Such - the video does look impressive, hopefully someone will give us some impressions soon...

A simple but addictive little RPG. Closest thing I can think of is Cozy Quest in terms of gameplay. Without the online aspect but with more depth in the gameplay itself.

You are presented with static screens, and given options such as wander around, descend to lower level, open a chest if you stumble on one, or fight if you encounter monsters.

The combat is turn based, ala pokemon, etc. One glitch(?) during combat, is when you're attacked there is a plain ugly white square that pops up around the monster (visible in the video). I hope that this can get fixed in an update.

You can return to town at any time to rest, buy/sell items, learn new combat attacks and magic spells. Once I encountered a merchant inside the dungeon as well. Death results in being sent back to town with a loss of half your gold.

The interface is clean, fast and intuitive. The pace is good, which I find important in games of this type.

Overall, quite a nice little game. Progress through the dungeon is addictive in the same way roguelikes can be, the upgrading of your character's stats, weapons/armor and learning of new skills/spells adds a good amount of depth.

If you've enjoyed games like Cozy Quest, Yipe5, Fargoal, or any of the roguelikes I think you should check this out.
