$0.99 Roguelikes?

Only have enough for a $0.99 game and I'm looking for a nice punishing (is there any other kind?) roguelike

1) Has to be playable on iPhone 4
2) Yes, I know about Ending. That's my default choice if I'm not interested by any recommendations

Okay...go! (And also maybe say why your choice is good too)

Or you could get Wazhack and unlock 1 pair of classes, then get the other 3 later.

Solid options, I also recommend Legends of Yore but I dont remember if I got it for a buck or two. Great roguelike imo.

Bit dungeon costs a buck and its a very entretaining rogue-alike, its not a "real" rl like say rogue touch or the dungeon but is very fun and has great pixel art.


P.s. thanks to the OP for mentioning Ending, never heard of it before and looks right through my alley.

Favorite games: LittleWing Crystal Caliburn, Legends of Yore, Hook Worlds, Phoenix HD, DoDonPachi Resurrection, Spectral Souls, Bastion, Avadon, Dariusburst SP, Aquaria, King of Dragon Pass & Starbase Orion

Rogue Ninja, for something unusual. But dunno if it's only a buckie.

Cavern would also be my weapon of choice. And you should REALLY REALLY love 9th Dawn.
Dunno about the prices of these.

But get these when you have a few spare bucks.

Bit Dungeon is also great.

But... what is "Ending"? *goes checking*

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.

Check out Brogue. It's quite unforgiving as well as completely free!
