Editors' Notes

This is not relaxing. This is not simple. But it is so, so good.

Great dungeon delving game - shame about tiny UI


After the update I’ve decided to amend my review. My original complaint that saves were being overwritten seems to have been fixed in the update addressing iCloud syncing - this is great!

This is a brilliant dungeon crawling game that will have you on the edge of your seat as your party is slowly driven made by the horrors they are forced to endure when you send them into nightmarish locations. There is a sharp initial learning curve, however I feel that after an hour or two of gameplay and a few restarts you’ll get a good feel for the game and it’ll become much, much easier.

My only complaint now is that the UI doesn’t seem to have been optimised for tablet in the slightest. Seems to be a rather lazy port indeed.

Rewarding and challenging

I love this game. So much depth learning how the characters work best and how to team them up against a large variety of enemies all with their own attributes. Planning ahead and keeping your characters sane and alive takes considered management. I play this mostly on Nintendo Switch but for 99p how could I refuse on my iPad mini as well. Put your reading glasses on and you will be fine with the compact interface. It’s the same on the Switch and is perfectly legible once you know what everything does.
