You are a lone adventurer in a strange, non-Euclidean world. Gather as much treasure as you can before the nasty monsters get you. Explore about 50 different lands, each with its own unique treasures, enemies, terrain obstacles, and mechanics which challenge your tactical and navigation skills. Your quest is to find the legendary treasure, the Orbs of Yendor. Collect one of them to win! Or just ignore your quest and collect smaller treasures.
The twist is the unique, unusual geometry of the world: it is one of just few games which takes place on the hyperbolic plane. Witness a grid composed of hexagons and heptagons, straight lines which seem to be parallel, but then they diverge and never cross, triangles whose angles add up to less than 180 degrees, how extremely unlikely is it to reach the same place twice, and how the world seems to be rotated when you do return. All this matters for the gameplay. The game is inspired by the roguelike genre (although in a very minimalist way), works of M. C. Escher, and by puzzle games such as Deadly Rooms of Death.
Three new lands. Many other new minor features.
Ratings and Reviews
Crashes a lot
The game is good, but it’s impossible to play as it because it constantly crashes, and restarts you back at the beginning when you reopen. This needs to be fixed, because otherwise there’s no reason to play
Can’t listen to music with HyperRogue; very dark map
Plays well, found some nits:
- if I play music then switch to or open HyperRogue, it always pauses my tunes
- on iPhone 6+, the move button is obscured by the direction indicator so one can’t tap it easily
- some of the tile sets are far too dim to see well with ambient daylight
Fun game, thanks :)
It's come a long way!
It plays great on my iPad Pro and iPhone 8+!
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the review! As in the desktop versions, the game should be saved if you exit the app after picking up an Orb of Safety (while it is still active). Orb of Safety should be easy to find in the Land of Eternal Motion and Crossroads (after you pick up 10 Phoenix Feathers in LoEM), and also in the Prairie. Unfortunately a save feature available at any time is very difficult to add because of the structure of the world.
