Dynamic Roguelike Action-RPG, played in real time from a top down 2D perspective. Raid endless dungeons, upgrade guild fortress and develop own heroes!

POCKET ROGUES brings old school ACTION-RPG flavor to the ROGUELIKE genre.

• TRY YOUR LUCK AS ONE OF MANY HERO CLASSES, each with unique skills, specific equipment, and their own progression tree.
• EVERY DESCENT IS SPECIAL! From locations and monsters to loot and chance encounters, everything is generated during the game. You will never see two identical dungeons!
• THE GAME INCLUDES UNIQUE LOCATIONS, each with its own visual style, distinctive enemies, traps, and interactive objects. Once discovered, you can move freely between them all.
• Construct and improve buildings in the territory of your very OWN GUILD FORTRESS. Unlock new hero classes, strengthen existing ones, and gain access to an arsenal of fierce techniques.
• REGULAR UPDATES! The game has been supported and actively developed for a long period of time. The game’s creator works in close contact with the community and dedicated players to ensure a high-quality experience for everyone.

Pocket Rogues contains many different dungeons, each with its own unique loot and monsters. A wide variety of classes and dozens of specializations allow you to take alternative approaches to the game’s numerous boss battles, and each will test your skill in a new way. Add in Pocket Rogue’s traditional RPG components, such as character progression and exploration, and you will never feel bored!

“For many centuries, a dark dungeon has called to hapless travelers, whispering secrets and promising priceless treasure. None who enter have ever returned, and rumor says that each met an unspeakable fate at the hands of a true Evil. These gloomy legends, of course, only entice new adventurers to try their luck in the depths, eager for glory, fame, and riches beyond imagination. What are you waiting for? It’s time to become one of them!”

ULTIMATE version of the Pocket Rogues is already available!

What’s New

Version 1.34

* Added a new mini-boss. Its gates can be found in all locations, except for the Catacombs, Prison and Borderlands
* Added a new type of generation - "lair" (and one sublocation of this type). The lair is a unique one-story dungeon that can be entered through a gate in any normal dungeon
* Gates are now generated more often, and two altars can appear on the same floor at once
* Small rooms are now more common in the Borderlands
* Added the ability to return to the Fortress alive. To do this, visit the Camp after the first kill of the Forgotten Keeper
* Updated the summary screen at the end of the descent
* Added chat to multiplayer. Be polite and respect your allies!
* Added 2 additional levels to the Alchemy Lab building that reduce the cost of combining consumable items
* Added 12 new recipes for the Forge
* Inventory items are no longer sold on character death or when ending the game via the pause menu. Now the automatic sale occurs only when returning to the Fortress from the Camp (the price when selling through the Merchant and when returning to the Fortress is the same)
* The base cost of selling (both to the Merchant and when returning to the Fortress) of all items of equipment has been increased by 4 (!) times
* "Underground Protein" modifier now increases max. the level of generated monsters by 100% (was by 150%)
* After each purchase of "Potion of Oblivion" or "Serum of Oblivion", the cost of the next similar potion is increased by 100 gems
* Pet Golem is now an elemental (previously it belonged to the class of animals)
* Pets and mercenaries are now more difficult to distract the boss from the character
* Item drop chance is now more balanced and more dependent on creature type (common, special, elite, etc.)
* The "Range" effect now affects the range of the Hunter's lunges, and not just normal attacks
* Bleeding no longer affects undead
* Added progress synchronization via iCloud (can be disabled in Settings). It works when you first start the game, and will allow you to restore progress after reinstalling the game, as well as transfer data from the free version to Ultimate without any additional actions on the part of the player. The old autosave to the cloud system is now available only after creating an in-game account
* On the character selection screen, you can now view their description and characteristics, as well as detailed statistics (it starts to be taken into account only after this update)
* The world map now displays a record score for each of the locations (on the "Rating" button)
* Inventory now shows total item prices instead of base prices
* Text in dialogs is now animated
* Added new hints on the loading screen and on the signs in the dungeons; some old tips edited
* Changed icons of some items
* Changed the appearance of the Goblin-Druid
* Updated some sound effects
* Companions will no longer come close to the character if possible
* When receiving new blueprints or modifiers, the volume of the music will be temporarily reduced so as not to drown out the corresponding sound effects
* The color of the damage pop-up numbers is now different if the shield is hit by the Steel Ring
* The table next to the Blacksmith can now be broken (in case an item is accidentally thrown there)
* During tutorial, the character now receives a wooden sword

* Added support for 2400x1080 resolution
* Changed "Target FPS" parameters due to low demand: values 144 and 240 are replaced by 90 and 120 respectively

Exploits found

I really like this game, and i’d like to report the 2 exploits that I have found.
The first one is for the completion of supply quests. You need to have unlocked the DASH ability and have unlocked the TRAVELING MERCHANT. When you find a CAMP GATES entrance and you have at least one supply item in your inventory you can use the exploit. Dash, and mid-dash, open your inventory and drop all of your supply items. The items won’t go back in your inventory because the dash finished. Then go into the camp and leave the camp. The items will still be there and can be recollected to update the quest. This can be repeated as necessary.
The second exploit uses the dash ability to move 2-3 times the normal distance. Walk parallel to a wall and turn 15 degrees towards the wall. Move forward and dash. Sadly enemies can use this too, meaning the Nightmare can launch you across the whole floor and the Ogre can get close far faster.
10/10 great game and I hope to see more content soon.

Simple, yet Brilliant

This is something I’ve been scavenging the app store for, for a long time. It would be a surprise to people not looking for it, as these games seem like they would be common, but no- games that are of this genre, good quality, fun, and just the right complexity are almost none existent (I’ve never seen one in over 5-6 yrs on iOS (iPad)). The game is great, balance is good, controls are good, settings contains just about everything the player needs, and the game is deep enough for several hours of gameplay to still not get everything. There is only one or two issues I have, those being about the guild area- 1. letting us know how many total possible buildings there are would be helpful, so we don’t have to wonder if we have everything or not, and 2. the guild concept is slightly confusing because after the tutorial ends, we get no more quests for a guild (not talking about the 3 quests that reset daily here, unless if those are guild quests)- where did the guild and their quests go? Where is this guild? Will we encounter more guild member (npc’s) who will give more quests or story? And, do any buildings contribute to meeting other guild npc's (not the one we can meet at camp after buying the specific building)?

Well, in summary, great game- wonderful way to burn some time and have some fun. An invaluable asset to the genre on the app store here, and I look forward to putting many more hours into this game.


I Perm ,

Best game I played in a while.

This game is very good. It’s fun and I play whenever I’m bored. As of now I have been playing for around 3-4 days and I enjoyed it. My only problem was that I can’t find a group to talk to. I’m not sure if other players connect to each other. There is a multiplayer and I play with my brother and I saw some others make their own groups but idk where to connect with them. I would really like a chat option as multiplayer progresses during beta. Also I was able to get 3 players for some reason. Idk how someone just joined me and my brother. It should only be 2 players maximum for now. Also you don’t get much to none xp on multiplayer. Idk if it’s because it’s in beta or something but I hope you can get more xp like normal. Good game overall. Underrated game
