Almost perfect...

As a huge roguelike fan, I make it a point to literally by every decent roguelike game in the App Store. Out of all the years that I have been buying roguelikes on the App Store, this is one of the first ones I've ever bought. Of all of the many I still own & play, I always keep coming back to Cardinal Quest 2 as my go-to, for either quick sessions, or lengthy dungeon dives. Once you get The Tower chapter unlocked, it just shines even more. There's only one flaw that I have found in all my time of playing the game. That is the lack of any confirmation button upon using items. I like the controls, I even like the placement of the items above the skills, but all too often I will be attempting to move down & accidentally hit an item, often it being an item of vast importance that I was saving solely for the upcoming boss fights. This pisses me off something terrible 😡! If you (dev) could just implement some kind of confirmation after tapping an item, sort of like what most of the skills have, just something like "use X, ?" it would completely fix this ONE issue in the game and make it completely perfect! I know the game is dated, and probably will never receive an update, but I can still wish...regardless, amazing game, I will be playing for many years to come!


A little about me: No problems running on iPhone 6. Huge roguelike player, have beaten games like Shiren (Nintendo DS, all dungeons) to Tales of Maj'eyal (Steam, vanilla game). For a free game, this game has shocked me. Graphically it isn't winning awards, but it's deep with lots of classes, skills, items, and build outs (picking A skill prevents picking B skill, etc). I'm on vacation and just sank 3 hours into this game in a blink of an eye. The in-app purchases are not rubbed in your faces, and are merely shortcuts to unlocking classes/starting gear. Everything can be obtained easily by just playing the game (Example: Unlock Thief for 3000 Morale, I accumulated 8000 morale in those three hours). My ONLY gripe, which I am not deducting any stars for, is I wish there were designated arrow keys for movement. Two of my three journeys ended poorly because when tapping my desired movement direction, it went the wrong way. I don't blame the devs as I know if I played more patiently (hard when having fun) I would be fine, as I did in my third journey where I completed Act 1. All in all, I give this game a solid A grade, and would recommend to anyone who's a fan of the genre or wants to try it out, because it's FREE! (*TIP: Click the Magnifying Glass icon on top and then clicking anything gives detailed descriptions!!)

Top notch dungeon crawler

I'd never heard of "roguelikes" till a year or so ago when I first started to get more into mobile gaming. Games like Wayward Souls, Dream Quest, & FTL were all highly recommended by reviewers, but for some reason never clicked with me. I had almost given up on the genre, but I'm glad I didn't.

CQ2 is a blast to play. It's worth tweaking the controls to find what works best for you. Once you get things dialed in, you can zip around like Link in the first Zelda, or plan each turn like a chess master; all based on how hard you swipe. Leveling up & acquiring loot progress nicely, and there are a wide array of classes & builds to choose from.

The icing on the cake is that the IAP's are indulgences instead of game breakers, and they are politely unobtrusive to boot.
