Forward is an innovative game in which you will progress through a procedurally-generated dungeon in the form of cards. Move your character from one card to another and keep going forward while avoiding attacking enemies. However be careful, each card will have specific effects making each move important and strategic.

Your goal is to clear the 8 levels of a dungeon, each level getting increasingly difficult. In order to succeed, you will have to choose which move to make, which item to pick and use your skills. Each choice is critical.

Take advantage of many items combinations and build the best character possible based on your goal and the cards you’ll come across.


- 100+ item cards to improve your characters
- 9 playable characters with unique skills and game mechanics
- 27 unique active competencies
- 3 game modes

As Forward is a rogue-like inspired game, the features you’ll be able to find are :

- Death ends the game ‌
- Procedurally-generated dungeons
- Turn-based movements
- Resource management (health, armor, mana, gold etc)
- Many randomly drawn items

The game is based on the 2022 PC game Forward: Escape the Fold which was received very positively. Developed by Two Tiny Dice, its success prompted the developer to bring the game to mobile.

Editors’ Notes

Battle through dungeons in this riveting roguelike card-based RPG that feels a little like solitaire but with a lot more tentacles and teeth.

could be great but lacking a bit

it did serve a purpose and was fun to unlock the characters and some challenges. but what’s annoying is that on the journey mode which has the potential to be so much fun. Zero explanation to what increasing and decreasing the values actually do in game. i’ve tried a mix of things and they are all impossible because not one thing makes sense. does increasing the quantity or the loot a good or bad thing? does increasing loot quality mean there’s less quality or more or rarity of items? does it mean i’ll find less or more lol.

hopefully they can add some explaining

Excellent, vey fun game!!

I just happened to check to see if this developer had come out with any new games, and was super excited to see he just came out with this one! I have played all the other games by this developer in the past, and they are always clever and well done. They’re also always priced fairly with no ads or IAP. And the file sizes are small and they don’t drain your battery. And they always save your progress so you can play when you have a short break.

Everything is done right. The tutorial is excellent, and this game is quick to learn so you can start playing. It’s a really enjoyable mashup of card game and dungeon crawler. I look forward to playing this more and more. There’s lots of variety and replayability here.

Thank you developer for doing such a great job and monetizing fairly too. The App Store needs more good guys like you. I highly recommend this game!
