Hellraid: The Escape Review

Review Shortbreak Studios By Alex Beech, 3 months, 1 week ago
Hellraid: The Escape Review

Hellraid: The Escape's bleak, medieval environments drip with chilling atmosphere. You begin in dismal dungeon, transfixed on a giant being that’s bearing down you. The creature makes it's way towards your fragile form and swings a massive axe. Moments later you come-to, sealed in a coffin. A few taps of the screen and you are free of the tomb, but still trapped in the underground jail, surrounded by jangling chains and the bones of your cellmates. Your single goal in this…

Storm Casters Review

Review Get Set Games By Alex Beech, 3 months, 3 weeks ago
Storm Casters Review

You're lost and alone in a forest. Your village has been destroyed. A wizard appears before you. Granting you magic powers to claim your revenge, the robed figure then points you in the direction of the village-ravaging monster's lair, the aptly named Skull Keep. Within the keep, you are thrown directly into Storm Casters's no nonsense dungeon crawling. A responsive virtual stick guides your hero, with a fire button letting you cast spells at the nearest available target. This si…

DUNGEONy Review

DUNGEONy Review

Dungeony is an odd interpretation of a roguelike. Taking control of a hero you plunge down through randomly generated levels to battle untold terrors in your quest to level up. Where it differs from others examples of the genre, however, is that none of your adversaries attack or even move. As the initiator of every encounter, Dungeony takes on a puzzle like quality. With limited health you have to carefully select your fights and route through the world. Unfortunately, without monste…

Wayward Souls Review

Review Rocketcat Games By Alex Beech, 5 months, 3 weeks ago
Wayward Souls Review

In theory, games with procedurally generated levels can offer an eternity of gameplay. For this near endless resource to be worth tapping, however, the journey has to be worth revisiting.  The moment we stepping into the cruel and unforgiving world of Wayward Souls, we felt oddly at home. Its top-down 2D perspective gives the game a classic 16-bit RPG look, while the brutal permadeath runs and persistent leveling underscore the game's roguelike heratige. Wayward Souls embraces th…

New roguelike dungeon-crawler Wayward Souls out on iPhone and iPad

New roguelike dungeon-crawler Wayward Souls out on iPhone and iPad

2D pixel-art dungeon crawlers may be as common as a +1 long sword, but they still have an allure. So, when we saw that developer of Super QuickHook Rocketcat Games had released Wayward Souls on the App Store, it caught our attention. This top-down action game takes the form of a roguelike. You have to jump into procedurally generated dungeons in an attempt to defeat beasties, unlock more challenging areas in which to farm better loot, and improve your chance of survival. Wayward Souls gives you a choice of six characters. Each has their own skills and fighting styles to master as you journey through the games 13 different area types. New environments will bring with them their…


Devious Dungeon Review

Review Ravenous Games Inc. By Alex Beech, 7 months, 2 weeks ago
Devious Dungeon Review

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. If this is true then last year's PC roguelike, Rogue Legacy, must be feeling pretty good about now, because Ravenous Games's new title, Devious Dungeon, borrows heavily from it. Both titles see you venturing through an ever-changing dungeon to defeat a reawakened evil. Success requires precision platforming skills, and a healthy dose of procedurally-generated luck. It is this combination of chance and challenge that makes the game…

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

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…


Demonrock: War of Ages Review

Review Crescent Moon Games By Alex Beech, 7 months, 2 weeks ago
Demonrock: War of Ages Review

On its surface Demonrock: War of Ages's isometric fantasy combat seems to ape classic dungeon crawlers like Diablo. Delve a little deeper, however, and you'll soon realise that this reverse tower defense game is far less broad in its scope. You are given a choice of four fighters. Two of these characters are unlocked, with the others available though IAP. Choosing which character to start with dramatically affects your experience – so making this initial selection esse…
