Dandy: Or A Brief Glimpse Into The Life of the Candy Alchemist

By Wefiends, Inc.

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Dandy requires at least an iPhone 4s, iPad 2, or iPod Touch 5G.

Deceptively cute, Dandy is a bit of a different take on a 2D shoot 'em up.

Enemies are reactive and their behavior is based on your actions. Going in guns (er, wands) blazing is usually not the best idea. As you encounter new enemies, you'll need to experiment and figure out their behavior, with an almost puzzle like element to getting through each set of enemies. Each map is randomly generated and power-ups are randomly spawned, so each run through is different.

• Thousands of power-up combinations, with powerful synergies to discover. Each powerup gives Dandy a completely new look.
• Procedurally generated maps make each playthrough different and challenging.
• Reactive enemies that force you to strategize. Coming in with guns (er, wands) blazing will often be a bad choice.
• Awesome original soundtrack.
• Universal App - Buy once to play on all your iOS devices.

Customer Reviews

The shmup rogue-like that you've always wanted!

This is a wonderful mashup of Binding of Isaac and Nuclear Throne poured into a shmup mould. Tons of items to unlock, intensely challenging enemies and bosses, quirky yet cute art and music. This game has it all! The first update has brought along more powerups, tougher enemies and a compendium which does a lot to expand the universe.
