Play cards! Kill monsters! Level Up!

Dream Quest is a roguelike deckbuilding game inspired by the likes of Ascension, Magic: the Gathering, and Shandalar. Explore randomly generated levels as one of 13 classes in short, 30 minute, sessions. One floor might find your wizard in the crypt, another your warrior underwater, and a third, your assassin stalking a volcanic wasteland. As you progress, your characters earn achievements, each making your future runs a little easier or more interesting.

Combat is a card game. Your abilities are a deck of cards that you develop as you gain power. For example, a thief starts with a handful of Slice cards and a Backstab, but can learn defensive moves like Dodge or powerful finishing moves like Coup de Grace. Carefully choosing which cards to add to your deck is the heart of the game: wise choices will find you slicing through monsters while poor ones will leave you tripping over your own two feet.

•14 different classes, with wildly different play styles
•Over 300 cards, ranging from the defensive Kick and Armor to the devastating Meteor and Curse of Doom
•More than 70 monsters carefully catalogued in the Bestiary as you encounter them
•Infinite replayability – easily 50 hours to see the majority of the content
•No In App Purchases – the price of the game is the price of the game. Everything is unlocked only by playing.

Reviews of Version 1.0 have been fantastic! Examples include:

"Don't be fooled by its simplistic stick-figure art – Dream Quest brings together roguelike dungeon-crawling and deckbuilding to create a truly unique challenge"

"This game is really one of a kind. The mix between rogue-like and cards is really well done...Kudos to the dev for such an innovative and challenging game"
-Mike32, TouchArcade

"If you can get past the simplistic graphics, you're looking at a very interesting, strategic game. I've already lost a few hours to it - the kind of hours where you wonder where the time went. Outstanding game!"

Triumph of gameplay over graphics


Possibly the greatest dungeon crawler / rogue like on the App Store. If you can tolerate the terrible graphics, you will be rewarded with deep and engaging gameplay.

Have played this on and off for years, and it still ranks among my top games.

Probably the best game I've ever bought

So let's get things clear, the graphics are pretty tragic, some five year olds could probably draw some better images than this; but let's do what all games do and call it a 'unique art style' - it grows on you, and I appreciate the simplicity of the look

On top of this, the game is very well thought out, it's the type of game where each time you try to beat the dungeon it gets a bit easier (from achievement unlocks). The mechanics of this game are so beautiful it's occupied many hours of my time; and I've enjoyed every minute! I also appreciate that is is a single price full game, no in app purchases, no countdown clocks, just a fully playable game, for a very nice price :)

I really hope there is a sequel to this! :)

Dream quest.

Okay so those of you who have looked at the screen shots like I did and thought it's not the most amazing looking game on the App Store are right, it doesn't look amazing, but it makes up for its looks with a highly addictive, roguelike card game mash-up that Is very hard to put down. All the characters are different enough to want to play them all. The need to unlock new cards via the achievement system gives this game a very good reason to replay it and the deck building and card based combat is fluid and starts to get tactical later on. If your judging this game by its cover don't, you'll be missing out on a very rare and well done hybrid.
