***Cross platform saves! Play the same Kingdom on any device!***

Desktop Dungeons, the award-winning unique puzzle roguelike makes its debut on iOS! Fight your way through randomly generated dungeons, collect spells, items, and loot to defeat the dungeon boss and earn gold to upgrade your Kingdom. Unlock new classes to play as, useful items to discover, capricious gods to worship, and enemies to fight. All in service of the almighty bottom line and saving your Kingdom from peril.

Desktop Dungeons packs all the challenge and reward of a dungeon crawling roguelike game into bite sized chunks of puzzle goodness. Take an Elf Warlord through the Venture Cave, defeat Aequitas the Warlock and sell his beard to your Taxidermist to afford an upgrade to your Blacksmith. Or, spend time in the game's extensive puzzles trying to understand exactly what worshipping Taurog is all about.

Key Features:
-Randomly generated single-screen dungeons offer bite sized adventure.
-Explore new terrain to regenerate your health and mana, INNOVATION!
-20 Classes to play as and unlock, including the new Chemist and Rat Monarch!
-7 Races that combine uniquely with the Classes, each playing differently.
-Upgrade your Kingdom to unlock items and preparations to start your dungeon runs with.
-Loads of quests and puzzles to keep you entertained for hundreds of hours.
-Compete with your friends in the new Daily Dungeon.
-Music by the power duo of Danny Baranowsky (Super Meat Boy, Binding of Isaac) and Grant Kirkhope (Banjo Kazooie, Goldeneye 64)
-The full Desktop Dungeons experience, optimized for touch screen.

"If you're looking for a roguelike with a cheeky swagger, and enough content to lose yourself in, then this should be at the top of your list." - PocketGamer (9/10)

"Desktop Dungeons is brilliant. It is so incredibly simple, and so incredibly basic, and yet it is brilliant." - GameZebo (4.5/5)

"Desktop Dungeons has made a pretty great effort to port their game to the iOS world, and it packs a lot of replay and problem solving into this app." - TouchArcade (4/5)

Desktop Dungeons won the award for Excellence in Design at the 2011 Independent Games Festival, where it was also a Grand Prize nominee.

Expensive for what it is!

I don't mind paying for games, in fact I'd prefer it to the IAP's, but I think that this is a little expensive for what it is, with it not being a total iPad experience, as there are leftovers from the PC version -keyboard hotkey letters, and the game not orientating on the screen, which is annoying if your trying to charge the iPad at the same time.
Otherwise it's a nice fun game, so maybe an update could fix these little disappointments?

Takes a while

At first this seemed very poor value for the cost, just a simple tap and move about a dungeon game, even after playing through the first couple of dungeons I was thinking this was disappointing. But then it opens up and you discover this was just the first tutorial and now there is a puzzle mode tutorial to get though. There is a lot more here than it seems, a lot more maps, puzzles, loads of quests. It really grows and gets better. I love it.

Horribly overpriced.

First of all this is a clumsy port. The interface still shows hotkeys and 'full screen' mode. There's no rotation for the iPad either, which is a minor inconvenience but an inconvenience nonetheless.

The game is also prohibitively difficult. Maybe that's an intended feature of 'rogue likes' but I have played plenty of RPGs like this before where progress isn't a combination of banging your head against a brick wall and hoping that you get lucky with the right combination of drops. This does not feel like a £7.99 game - this feels like a shareware demo from a basement coder who will one day go on to make real games. Avoid.
