iPad: Mysterious Castle 1.10

Mysterious Castle 1.11 (w) Pinch Zoom

Hi!, I've just released Mysterious Castle 1.11 for iPad and iPhone!

It's finally got full pinch zoom support along with pixel perfect object selection, so it's really playable on a phone or iPod.

It's a tactics-roguelike, basically a party based tacticts game like FFT or Tactics Ogre, set in a procedurally generated world like ZAngband or Dungeons of Dredmor.

It is optimized for touch and plays brilliantly on an iPad 2 or higher. If you like challenge and old-school RPG mechanics, give it a try!

Depending on where you are in the world, it might take a few hours for the store to update and show it. It'll show up any minute (hour?) now...

Yep, this is the first time it's on iPad though. The game was designed from the get-go to support touch, but it plays much better on an iPad than on an iPhone. I have little girly fingers and didn't realize that most adult males would have a really hard time playing the game on an iPhone. Now it works brilliantly on the touch screen. The interface is deliberately uncluttered and it's easy to do complex things.

Anyway, tooting my own horn there, but I'm very excited it's on iPad now, definitely my favourite way to play.

Looks so like my kind of game... Very Ultima look and vibe I am getting from this with its look and tactics style! Gonna have to bite!

I would think so since I just bought it! (U.S. AppStore if it makes a difference)
