i don't like fargoal (mainly because i think the sprites are ****) but i love 100 rogues and I love legends of yore too. You could also play the web based version without downloading anything to try it out! Save game syncs across multiple devices.

I'm somewhat more concerned about the extent of randomization, though. Are the maps, items, quests, dungeons and such randomly generated in each play through?
I've always loved roguelikes, equally for their gameplay and randomized nature. It's kind of why I'm so fixated on the latter. ^^

spyky: I didn't like Sword of Fargoal mainly because I had a difficult time with the controls and 100 Rogues was far too IAP-based for my taste. The only iOS roguelike I've loved is Mysterious Castle, but I like having options.
The only device I have is my iPad, so I won't be able to try the web version, unfortunately.

EDIT: Now that I think of it, my first question was a bit silly. Never mind.
Actually, I'm fine with just randomized dungeons and quests. Would this have those and does it have a storyline of any kind?

Map of First Area (DRAFT: March 15)

Hello, all:

I love this Legends of Yore game. I created a map of the first area. Feel free to use it, as you see fit. I am updating this as I gain XP (I am level 48).

Thanks,
Robert

I couldnt wait for the updates to go live... So i bought

EDIT: I like it a lot. This is one of the most decent dungeon crawlers i've played in a while. Only played for about 20 mins, but it was 20 mins well spent.

I've played up to level 20, the game is sort of addictive, but it is awfully light. I played as a warrior (maybe a mistake) and there are hardly any choices. Run up to enemies and bash them. Carry around an almost infinite number of healing potions, and quaff them as needed. Teleport back to town when you've picked up enough equipment, to sell it and buy more potions. I waited a long time to get one special skill, Shield Bash, and it seems useless. The equipment only has one or two ratings so it's always clear what's best to use. I don't mind supporting the developer by purchasing the full version, but I'm not sure I actually want to play any more.
