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 own unique challenges, mosters, and rewards.

The game currently costs £2.99 / $4.99 on the App Store, but Rocketcat has said that it will raise the price by a dollar with each content update its adds. So, if Wayward Souls looks like your goblet of elixer, you may want to grab it sooner rather than later.
