Enter the depths of the ancient city of Angor and prepare for battle. Form a mercenary party of adventurers, sell swords, rogue sorcerers and assassins and enlist with an army of Dwarves trying to retake their ancient homeland. Fight in a brutal campaign against goblins, undead, ratmen and the demon lords they worship.
Demon's Rise is a turn-based tactical game where players must lead a party of six heroes through the bowels of an underground city. Battles are intense affairs where the proper use of terrain and cover is as important as the choice of spell or attack.
BATTLES: Fight through 35 grueling campaign levels and another 51 patrol missions.
CHARACTERS: Choose a band of six heroes from 30 playable character classes. Each class has unique strengths, weaknesses and special abilities.
REWARDS: Uncover the treasures of the old kingdom ... find gold or thousands of possible weapons, pieces of armour and artifacts. Equip them to make your heroes stronger or sell them off and buy something more fitting.
EXPERIENCE: As your heroes fight, they gain experience, level up and unlock powerful new spells and abilities.
COVER / TERRAIN: Position is key to victory. Place your heroes behind cover for protection or next to a magical shrine for extra power.
MORALE: Your heroes and their enemies may panic when they see the battle go badly or enter a berserker fury if they see an ally cut down. Form a tight battle line where your stronger heroes can lend courage to the weaker ones and use intimidation as a weapon against your foes.
ABILITIES: Wizards can launch fireballs, cast protective wards or summon powerful monsters to their aid. Illusionists can trick their enemies into switching sides or make them panic without reason. Mighty warriors can make powerful weapon strikes, become berserk or heal themselves during battle. All 30 player classes and many of the enemies you will encounter can perform such abilities and can use them to turn defeat into victory.
Demon's Rise is a traditional game with NO IN-APP PURCHASES or unfair "pay to win" mechanics. Victory is earned through courage, strength and tactics and not additional spending.

Ratings and Reviews
So much fun. I really recommend this and its sequel to anyone trawling the App Store. It’s challenging and entertaining, clearly a labour of love. The developer must enjoy the game nearly as much as I do and regularly comes back and tweaks things a little or even adds characters. I just recently downloaded this once more and enjoyed replaying it all the way through as much as the first few times.
The shop is a bit taxing on the eye with an iPhone but the game is so addictive you’ll cheerfully squint yourself blind searching for that perfect legendary item.
No extra charges, no part payments.
Buy it, you won’t regret it.
Gather your companions ...
Great game, plenty of depth and a host of hordes to battle through. Graphics are great and battery drain less of an issue than I would have expected.
New update (Jan 25) seems to have fixed the level 33 bug, so a big Thank You to the developers.
Game now crashes which is a shame as I really liked it ! Will rate five stars if this is fixed, I'm sure it will be as Dev seems very involved and is thought highly of.
