What the Media says
„Crowntakers strikes a really good balance between simplicity and complexity. It has just as much pick up and play appeal as lighter roguelike fare while offering a bit more to chew on.“
Shaun Musgrave, toucharcade, 4,5/5 stars
„Crowntakers is a tough combination of turn based strategy and Roguelike. It's quite satisfying, though.“
Jennifer Allen, 148Apps, 4/5 stars
„How many acronyms can you cram into a single game? Crowntakers is a PDL TBS RPG (that is, a procedural death labyrinth role-playing game with turn-based strategy combat) (…) and it’s really good fun if you like games like Final Fantasy Tactics.“
Michelle Star, CNET
5/5 - If you like turn based tactical medieval rpg's get this. Not as much story/length as final fantasy tactics, but frankly on iDevices I consider that a win. Bite sized battles, winnable in a day on easy, challenging on hard, good replay value. Only crashed once on 1st gen mini
5/5 - This is worth your money. You get a polished game, tactical battles, and thoughtful choices in exploration. Also big points for splitting the game into two difficulties. One being sort of roguelike with permadeath and the other much more RPG without permadeath and with consistent leveling. If you're thinking about this one, you'll probably thoroughly enjoy it like I do!
5/5 - This game should get much more hype. I've been playing it non-stop in my free time for over a week. Despite some bugs (which the dev's have been very quick to address), Each game feels quite different with the random locations within areas, random loot and different party builds. It's not easy at first, but learning different strategies as you go is enjoyable. Highly recommend this game!
5/5 - Big fan of this game. The battles are very tactical and the map navigation is really streamlined and fun to explore. This is a good one for any rogue-like fans. It's not super punishing, but it does present a nice challenge on the normal mode (haven't beaten it yet, but I hope a hard mode unlocks after doing so).

It's fun and easy!
The reviews are overwhelmingly positive, and they should be!
The negative seems to be entirely about how you can lose, and how hard the game is. Even the professional toucharcade review claimed it was hard. However, if you have basic familiarity with resource management and strategy, the game is remarkably easy.
It's terrible to say, but the game is just TOO easy. It needs a "hard" difficulty. I beat it on my second play on Easy difficulty (almost won on the first play through), and now that I beat Normal, I beat it every time with an epically overpowered party. You have to set self-challenges like "all meleers" if you want it to be hard. One ranged character can kill infinite enemies.
An Enduring Favorite
I love this game. I have beat it nine or ten times and it doesn’t get old. To be clear: I don’t play intense action games, I just like simple, thoughtful games that require strategic thinking and decision making. The battle system in this game is perfect for that kind of thing. Furthermore, the enemies in the game level up as you spend time moving on the map. In most RPGs, it pays to explore everywhere, but in this game, you must carefully weigh the costs of meandering lest your enemies surpass you in strength.
The game play is okay and I agree with most of the positive comments. However, it is a very unstable game that will load sometimes, will not load other times. Other problems include what appear to be glitches in the game progression loading. The fame would load but it wouldn't allow for game play. I had to uninstall and lose all progress. Don't buy the add-on. That also loads about half-the-time and really isn't necessary to advance. I would not recommend this game because of the issues -even though the game play (when you can actually play) is not too bad.
