Nonlinear gameplay lets you pick which locations you want to play first.

Your goal is to collect keys and treasures while defending yourself from the neverending hordes of Ancient keepers. Find the exit and make it out alive to advance.

Combination of environmental puzzles and combat, with emphasis on combat

Pick your style! Each method provides a unique gameplay experience....
Accelerometer - plays like a first person shooter

well i downloaded both. and tried them both..

anyhow, i think i would change the error message "telling someone you told them so and go buy the other app" is not something i would want to read if i bought the wrong one by accident. yeah i know you think if they read it its there fault.. but if it was me i would not buy another app from you.. especially after figuring out i wasted money then being told so and go buy another one..

id keep the message simple "this version is for X" not i told you so.
anyhow.. ill stop my rant.


its a good game thank you. you rock.

I play this one often and love it -- it's huge; it's like a combo of Gauntlet, Tutankhamen & an old ST/Amiga game called Time Bandit.
