Pixel-art roguelike Devious Dungeon charging onto the App Store tonight

Pixel-art platformer Devious Dungeon is arriving on the App Store at midnight tonight.

While combining 8-bit visuals, platforming, and randomised level design is not an original idea for a game, when it's the work of Ravenous Games (the developer of the fantastic League of Evil series) we find ourselves paying attention.

The medieval-themed platform game will offer five differently themed environments to explore beneath the streets of the Kingdom. Each of these will offer unique enemies and challenges to overcome as you battle to collect increasingly impressive loot, and improve your chances of survival.

The aquisition of gear is especially important, as you will uncover increasingly difficult missions and boss battles the deeper you venture.

Devious Dungeon boasts many of the same features as last year's PC roguelike Rogue Legacy. This is hardly a bad thing, though, and there is certainly space for another permadeth platformer on the App Store. What's more, Ravenous Games's track record shows the studio is very capable of creating tight platformers which work on touch screens.

You can loot Devious Dungeon from a nearby corpse – or buy it from the App Store for 69p / 99c – when it is released tonight.

If this has day 1 iMpulse controller support, I will probably play the heck out of it.
