Welcome to Sword of Fargoal® Legends,
**WINNER "BEST RETRO GAME" 2010 BEST APP EVER AWARDS (iPad version)**
The classic dungeon crawler adventure, now reimagined in a brand new HD adaptation for the iPad!
Explore the perilous dungeon in your attempt to rescue the Sword of Fargoal. It is said to be hidden deep on the 20th level and guarded by a host of monsters and other powerful foe, but you must avoid devilish traps, wrong turns, and other obstacles along your way. Once you find the Sword you must make it out alive before the walls begin to collapse around you!
You embark on a new quest each time you begin a new character! The entire dungeon is generated randomly each time, giving a satisfying, infinitely-replayable experience to both retro gamers and newcomers alike. Originally developed over 25 years ago for the C64 (and other classic Commodore computers) it is a perfect old school adventure with amazing new graphics, original music, and retro-inspired sounds.
★ PACKED WITH NOSTALGIA, PERFECT FOR DUNGEON CRAWLER NEWCOMERS
Selected as one of the "Best iPhone Games" by TouchArcade's 2009 Buyer's Guide (5-stars)
"This game is really worth its price and even more. There are games you pay 5 to 10 bucks for and they aren't nearly as addicting as Sword of Fargoal is. I hadn't more fun with the last RPGs I played."
"This is one game that is not to be missed, and I could kick myself for waiting so long to get this. So do yourself a favor and instead of kicking yourself later, just go and get this."

What's New in Version 1.8
- Now a universal binary and can be played on iPhone too.
- Various performance improvements.
Great remake of the original, cant wait for the original tileset. it's nice to hear the original sounds in there. Hearing something moving close by still puts me on edge after all these years :)
Minor Issues: Don't like the control scheme, easy to overshoot where you want to go and constantly swiping is tiring on me poor fingers. No apparent need for running. There is no way to turn off the ill fitting music. The status bar text should use the same fargoal font, looks bad as is - just a bit more polishing is needed.
Older gamer who played this as a young kid in the 80’s and I like this version so far. A few new things and improvements but stays true to the games original version. Enjoy!
Better than nostalgia.
I played this and loved it on the Commodore 64 25 years ago. It is bigger and better than ever.
