Dinofarm Games - creators of 100 Rogues - are pleased to present the critically-acclaimed Auro: A Monster-Bumping Adventure.

TouchArcade ***** - "Auro is one of the rare games in this genre that should please both beginners and experts alike."

Pocket Tactics ***** - "It wants you to see how clever it is, and to show you how clever you are."

Auro introduces a whole new kind of gameplay: Bumping! What's that? Why, it's the strategic use of movement, magic spells, and straight-up bumping to kill monsters to gain points, and become a master Bumper!

Set in an original fantasy universe, guide the brash, spoiled Prince Auro through procedurally generated dungeons, with only a handful of tactical spells - and your wits - to protect you.

Face a variety of monsters, each with their own cool tactical abilities, and then when they least expect it - give 'em a healthy bump - STRAIGHT INTO THE DRINK!

Interesting but finicky

Found this game because of the author's podcast. He wants feedback so here goes:

User interface clunky, text hard to read. Graphics, C-. Game concept interesting but confusing and hard to differentiate/remember what does what. Tutorial lacking and doesn't prepare you well. Infuriating that I am in a timed game, need to plan my moves, and yet cannot see more than a few hexes.

Keith you are obviously a smart dude, but you seldom talk about what the player feels, play testing, or your collaborators. I watched a Sid Meier 2010 keynote and that's mostly what he talks about.

Better understanding the psychology behind the player might aid you if you want future efforts to be more popular. (Episode 26). Good luck man. I'm going to give Auro a few more tries on my next flight.

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.

Nice pixel art, still feels low-quality

Good game, nice pixel art. Sad, sad, sad that so many of the pixels are blurry. I guess it doesn't play well with the iPad's native resolution. Those combined with the black bars on the side make this feel like a low-quality, cheap game, not the pixel art itself. Too bad that such a nice game with nice art has these visual issues.
