Finally, a great iOS roguelike!

I was skeptical about this game. I've tried all the iOS roguelikes over the years and feel like I've been burned so many times, but this one has nailed it. Unreserved recommendation.


Consider Every Move Carefully

I always surprised by how good a game can be without useless options and over worked UI. Hoplite does just that and delivers a compelling game build on great basics. In short, it is rogue-like chess.
The goal is only sixteen levels down. Sixteen punishing levels. If you move without a plan, you'll spend a lot of time on the first couple of levels. You want the Golden Fleece, Spartan? Think.
That's all. I gotta get back to this game!
