Default Roguelike on iphone/ipad?

Anyone recommend one.

I loved FTL on the PC but it doesn't look like this is coming to the app store any time soon.

I'm just going off of games I enjoyed a lot.

Wazhack: Awesome free(for the first 200 feet of dungeon, which is more then it sounds like because you can replay that with a number of different characters, then you can buy a character pack for 99c and go down infinitely with that set) RL that has quickly become one of my all time favs. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wazhack/id578208562?mt=8

Dungeon plunder: Great game with a very active dev and lots of updates. There are character skins you can buy, as well as two classes, but they are completely optional and if you do buy some, you are supporting an awesome dev.

Dungeon plunder (freemuim) https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/dungeon-plunder-rpg/id639964395?mt=8

Dungeon plunder (paid) https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/dungeon-plunder/id588551503?mt=8

The other one (off the top of my head) is Slayin'. Very simple game where you control the direction of the character and slay enemies to collect coins to buy upgrades.

There aren't many games similar to FTL on App Store. FTL seems very space sim heavy but with a roguelike emphasis on randomized uncertaintly and exploration. There are rumors FTL might eventually come to iOS.

This guy knows what he's talking about, those are some great roguelikes. Also +1 to Dungeon Plunder.

Mysterious Castle is a party-based Roguelike with a Darklands meets Dwarf Fortress vibe. After a huge update and forum activity, the dev went oddly silent, but definitely worth a look.

Sad nobody mentioned Dungelot. There's a sequel coming too.

For a squad based dungeon romp, Warhammer Quest.

Dungeonism is also good.

I was coming back to post about mysterious castle, which I love, but, was beaten to the punch.

So I'll add rogue ninja to the mix instead.


I said dungelot...

Bit Dungeon is another good one. Not sure if it's completely roguelike, but it's decently close.
