Canadian Shield

Canadian Shield is a turn based dungeon game based on the simple to look at but complex to play Nethack. Players familiar with D&D will recognize the character design and monsters.

Choose a class of character to play and discover the unique quests and tools that go with each role. Each time you play, you must roll for your character’s attributes, giving you different advantages and disadvantages each time. Also, a new dungeon is created with a huge array of objects and monsters with every game. Some games can be very easy with powerful starting characters, some with lots of good weapons and armour available to you. Other games will be difficult with tons of aggravated monsters and sometimes, just surviving is tough as you suffer from hunger.

Playing Canadian Shield is as much analytical as it is random. You have to determine what objects will help you into the depths of the game. Many offer properties you have to be observant to discover. And as easily as you can enhance a weapon, it can be cursed or corroded. The game doesn’t care if you live or die. It’s up to you to survive and win.

Games can be fully completed (How good are you?!) but you only can work on one life at a time. An in app purchase of tokens will allow you to spend tokens to save and load characters. Support goes towards further development of the game.

Looks fun, but...

I can't really tell whether its a fun game or not, because as soon as you create your character, it dies of starvation
