Default WazHack (Roguelike)




WARNING: This is an actual roguelike, with typical "you move / they move" type gameplay, not an action RPG. It appears that the dev greatly sped up the video.

This is a roguelike, but played from a side-scrolling perspective. It has randomly generated loot, dungeons, monsters. There are other common features such as cursed items, randomly generated potions and spells, wands, etc.

Controls are tap on objects/monsters to use. Tap/hold to move.

There are IAP to unlock other characters.

So far I'm enjoying it. One unique aspect, aside from the side perspective, is that you can point wands in any precise direction (example: you can shoot down from a ladder).

Woh... another RPG for this week? Nice. Will surely pick it up since free, and it's pretty much something new in the roguelike scene.

This game is really awesome, actually. I was a bit skeptical at the look, but it is a ton of fun! I plan on buying at least a couple iAP characters to support the great devs!

The only thing I'm having problems with is editing text, I.E. a username. Once I put it in, I can't find a way to save/exit that menu. Anyone else having this problem?

Same here I've just been playing it for half an hour and at first I wasn't sure what to think becuase I don't remember playing a rogue like from a side on view but after sticking with it I started to see the good old rogue like features I know and love, like the turn based movement/fighting and the random loot etc.
over all this is a nice surprise game, I'll be picking up at least a character pack or two depending on how much I play of it, but early impressions are good.
Going by the app description there's quite a few items to find and different monsters to fight.
Nice find whoever found it.

Not too keen on the graphics, but I guess if I can sit staring at @ for hours on end I can give this a chance.
