An evil sorcerer has appeared in the lands, he has built a dungeon in the nearby village of faladir, where his minions use it as a base to raid the surrounding villages to bring terror and death to all its citizens. A hero by the name Zantor dares to defy the powers of the sorcerer and seeks to destroy the dungeon and put an end to this.

Leave impressions, Vovin...just saw this in "newest game releases". Looks a bit like "Companions" by Smuttleworks but I'm sure the similarities are only cosmetic.

Don't like seeing 3 stars in the corner...not an element I expect to find in a strategy game.

Now that I think about it, it looks more like Hero Mages.

Hm, call me interested.

Do we control a party, or only take the single guy through the dungeons? How's the gameplay?

If it's anything like a turn-based board game, with dice-rolling and such, I'm buying this when I get home.

Curious about impressions!

[EDIT] Actually, just found a video:

Judging from screenshot 1, it looks inspired by the Heroquest board game from Milton Bradley. I'll buy it later today, I think...

I just bought it on Android, since it's the phone I have around, and perhaps I'll double dip on the iPad version when I get home if it's fun.

Lots of Dungeon-y-Questy-like games coming out now - they do know how to get me to spend money... And here I am waiting for Warhammer Quest!

Let me know about impressions whenever you have the chance to play it.

Because, mate.

Firing it up now, right after I took my original, honemade Ciabatta out of the oven.


First impressions are good, nice board-game / dungeon crawler hybrid like Hero Quest or the first Warhammer Quest. Very atmospheric sounds, crisp graphics.
It's close to Mighty Dungeons, just without seperate battle screens.
You accept missions and have to get them done in a specific number of turns, otherwise you're dead as as the Python parrot.
You collect money on your way and battle foes. Nice: random events come up every bunch of turns.
You also meet other AI-controlled characters along the way which follow and help / support you at battle. They auto-follow you, but you canaslso give them commands.
Between missions, the usual town-/character management stuff.
There are also dialogues while playing a mission, cool thing.
There's also some polish.

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.

Hypothetically how does one roll a "skull of fate" in a way that would produce a meaningful result? Too bad there's no animation with that.
