Customer Reviews

Hands down, the best iOS RPG!

Wow, already so many outstanding reviews here, lol.

For all old-school gamers who enjoyed playing Rogue and other RPGs, this game is must-have. An extremely well designed interface that feels completely natural and intuitive on iOS. The game has been updated several times in response to user feedback, and it just gets better every time. The latest implementation of the (endless) Tower mode is the epitome of what randomly-generated dungeon crawlers are all about. The enemies keep getting tougher while the player character continues to improve. The overall difficulty still continues to steadily increase though, ensuring a fun and challenging game. The variety of character classes should accommodate virtually any RPG-gamer's preferred play style, and each class provides a very unique game experience.

p.s. For the truly hardcore player, there IS a halfway-decent port of that classic Rogue for iOS, but thanks to the new Tower mode I think CQ2 captures the feel of that game type even better than Rogue did. As awesome and ground-breaking as Rogue was, it was always a little TOO random for my taste. Besides, my CQ2 wizard looks so much cooler than just an @ symbol, lol. Anyway, call it a tribute if you like, but CQ2 stands on its own and is paving the way for future iOS dungeon crawlers!


This game has been on my phone for over a year. It hasn't gotten old. The hardest difficulty turns the game into a chess-like experience - one must make precise moves to outmaneuver enemies and survive. This game stands the test of time. I still haven't beaten every act with every class on the hardest setting. I feel as though certain classes and builds are much better than others (I've gone through a few hundred runs at least testing different builds). The thief is hands down the weakest and most difficult class to play. Item and skill drops can completely make or break a run at the hardest difficulty... Something which can get quite annoying at times. Overall there is a lot of luck involved but it is still up to the player to make skillful decisions about risk. Really all the small details of this game are what make it so great. Too many to type out here. Amazing game overall.

Clearly made by people who AREN'T in it just for the $$$

A very satisfying and well designed roguelike. The game is 100 percent free and there is nothing that isn't totally reasonable to achieve without spending a penny. That said, the game is so clearly a real work of love by the developer that they should be rewarded for their work. You CAN spend money on points that will allow you to unlock character classes and upgrades but the game is pretty generous with these points just over the course of gameplay that it never feels like the game is trying to push you to spend money. Because of this I am planning to spend a few bucks as a thank you. When game developers do the right thing they should be rewarded. This could easily have been a $9.99 game. Perhaps even more and the cost would have been justified.
Anyway if this is your style of game, download immediately. ūüėÉ
