Oh, from a German dev. Looks interesting.

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.

Although popular Sword of Fargoal itself is not an original game; rogue-like games in these styles have existed for some time (i.e. Nethack). I haven't played Slay the Dragon to say for sure but the presentation alone seems legitimate to me.

Rogue-likes are rogue-likes, but graphically at least this immediately looked too close for comfort to Fargoal to me personally.

There are hundreds of apps who look close to another. As long as the game itself plays cool, no prob.
