Sir cucumber ,

Deep gameplay, very difficult

Try as I might I can't make it to 75 points or past level 4, but I keep learning new tricks and don't feel like giving up. Worth a try!

Masterpiece of game design

I’m so happy this game is back on the app store. What’s more, they actually seem to have updated it from last time, adding little balance improvements and even a couple new enemies.

This is one of the best pick-up-and-play roguelikes of all time. Even though the rules are simple, the gameplay is incredibly dynamic. In the higher levels, you are forced to come up with a novel and unique strategy to tackle almost every single enemy. There is no “fluff” here like in-app purchases, leveling, or metaprogression beyond just upping the game’s difficulty. Only rock solid gameplay.

It’s very unique; its closest peer would probably be Into The Breach, but that game is vastly different and not really good for pick-up-and-play. Auro is much more accessible, and worth picking up even if you’re not that into the genre.

My only question is what’s with the icon?? It used to be a cooler icon of the main character, but now it’s just a portrait of one of the weird looking in-game adversaries with the transparency messed up. I get it though — I don’t even maintain my own iOS game, since nobody buys it… I’m just really glad this is back on the app store.

this “anti-Angry Birds” may be the best game for the iPhone/iPad

In this age of flashy, distracting but meaningless mobile games, it’s rare to see a game that’s actually fun, let alone inventive. Auro manages to do both. Give it a shot.

In this turn-based strategy game, you play as a little blond prince who defeats enemies by bumping them into water or pillars of flame. Different spells can do anything from shoot rows of fire to turn you into a raging yeti.

The game can take a while to get into. The art design is unusual, and the spells don’t seem to always make sense at first (launching a fireball on top of an enemy, the instinctual move of almost any other game, is often a wrong choice here—instead you aim to the left of an enemy to knock him into a pit).

Keep at it though, and you’ll find that there’s a lot of internal logic and a great deal of thought and love put into making a nearly perfect strategy game. Easily worth the $5.
