The Paladin Update is here! Adds a completely new character to the game, with new equipment and abilities! Also features new music, a new dungeon, and more!
Wayward Souls is an action-adventure game built for quick playthroughs and massive amounts of replay value. It was inspired by Spelunky, Secret of Mana, and our previous game, Mage Gauntlet.
Procedurally generated random levels mean that every time you play the game, it's a different experience. Control one of six characters, all with their own unique playstyles, abilities, and equipment. Explore and fight for survival, in combat where your tactics, positioning, and timing matter.
- Fancy control scheme with no virtual buttons or sticks to fumble over.
- Unlock new areas, for increasingly punishing difficulty.
- 13 area types, all with different monsters, potential traps, and rare encounters.
- Each character can find equipment combinations that change their gameplay.
- Victory is based on your increasing skill as a player, not solely on grinding.
- No IAP ever, even for the hats. All content updates will be free for our fans.
- Unprecedented scope and variety for an action-adventure game on iOS, maybe anywhere.

Here's a new giant content update for Wayward Souls! We have added an all new playable character: Gallus, the Paladin. He is extremely powerful when he gets all his abilities, but also has to face an extra difficult dungeon designed specifically for him!
- Adds the Paladin, unlocked after completing the Shadow dungeon or dying in that dungeon 20 times
- The Paladin has his own long, extra difficult dungeon, a new storyline, and all new weapons, equipment, and abilities!
- New music tracks added!
- You can now unlock Cultist without beating Labyrinth, by dying in that dungeon 20 times, as a way to help people that are stuck
- New higher difficulty added to the monster generation, to support Paladin's story. This can also show up in the other hard dungeons during rare rooms!
- New special appearances for Gauntlet bosses
- Other tweaks and fixes
This is likely our last big content update for the iOS version, but we're also planning a small update in the future!

Ratings and Reviews
This will be the first review of an app I have ever written and very well may be the last. However, I had to take the time out of my day to praise the absolute masterpiece crafted by Rocketcat.
The upmost love and care went into every last piece of this compelling, action-packed, rogue lite adventure. Blood, sweat, and tears went into designing the flawless, tight control scheme. Fast paced and aggressive enemies dwell within the Mines, Tower, Catacomb, and Labyrinth, guarding their secrets and the stories of up to 6 playable classes (a separate dungeon exists for the 7th class). Each comes equipped with a unique play style; customizable via in game upgrades that can shift gameplay drastically.
Although permadeath exists for runs, a robust upgrade system allows you to power up your heroes so they can face the trials again, stronger than ever! Massive replay value lies within the procedurally generated dungeon maps and enemy placement, and each dungeon has its own boss lying in wait for foolish adversaries. Collectors will have their hands full obtaining the multitude of hats stashed away in the dungeons.
All in all, I can genuinely say, as an avid gamer, wayward souls is one of my favorite titles hands down, with endless hours of content, charming graphics, engaging gameplay, and rewarding progression systems. 11/10 would recommend!
I don't review products very often (mostly because I'm too lazy to do so) but THIS deserves a review with a 10-star rating! The gameplay is quite difficult but addicting; I get frustrated and leave for a while, sure, but I always come back to it. The music is beautifully eerie, too. I eagerly chase new pieces of story that emerge with each playthrough; even something as small as a conversation of two ghosts about one of the Saints statues gives you more info about the world, and I keep finding new tidbits despite having played the levels likely hundreds of times by now! I accidentally missed one by killing the speaker before they finished, and I still regret it. This game builds a true world, which you soon realize the story you're following is only a small part of. Amazing in every way- I could not give constructive criticism even if I tried. It's absolutely worth your money if you like beautiful music, interesting stories and world-building, and challenging but addicting dungeon crawlers (real-time ones, that is). Try this out- if you like these things, you won't regret it!
Its a wonderful work. The gameplay is hard but fair. Soundtrack is very nice and compelling to listen to. Not a game for those who are looking for a quick experience or easy gameplay. The story building elements used in the game are fantastic and just about everything involved in the gameplay builds a unique world worth expiriencing. Some neat references via hat system and comedic or interesting random events that further enhance your gameplay and the overall story. It can be frustrating when you get stumped at a certain part or certain enemies give you trouble and whem that happens I take a break for a while but I always want to come back and return refreshed to keep going and manage to figure out the enemy and keep progressing. Loads of hours sunk into it and theres still much more to be done. Definitely worthy of 5 stars.
