You are no hero … no prancing knight or scholarly wizard but a champion of the dark gods. As their chosen, you have command of legions of barbarians, beastmen and demons. Wield unholy strength, necromancy and hellfire to bring ruin to the civilized realms. Honor your gods on the bloody fields of battle in a quest for power and ascension.

Demon’s Rise 2 is a turn-based, tactical RPG set in a brutal and unforgiving fantasy world. Taking place amidst a horrific war in the cold north, the campaign will see your party fight innumerable enemies, huge monsters and powerful sorcerers. Victory will require the tactical use of terrain, morale, formations and magic. Build an increasingly powerful war band, command demonic allies, and crush those that stand against you.

• Tactical Choices: Use terrain effects, cover and line of sight to gain an edge over your enemies. Employ spells to hinder powerful enemies, area effect damage to clear the field of lesser foes and buffs to strengthen your allies.

• Build Your Party: Choose from 18 diverse character classes to build your war band. Your warriors will improve with every victory, becoming stronger and unlocking new powers and skills. Acts of courage and savagery on the battlefield will bring favor from your gods, which can mean the difference between glory and defeat.

• Collect Gear: Equip your warriors with powerful weapons, arcane objects, runic armor and legendary artifacts. There are thousands of items to find and collect, each with their own stat effects and background lore.

• Campaign: Fight through a lengthy campaign and numerous side quests that span more than 80 hours of play time. No level caps and the ability to replay levels at a harder difficulty add to the longevity.

• Engaging Lore: Immerse yourself in the history of Tarren, the world of Demon’s Rise. A land of broken empires and shattered kingdoms where armies of humans, demons and other races fight for bitter survival.

There is potential for something amazing in this game but I don’t know if the devs are ever going to pursue it. The mechanics are good but the maps are small. It would be great to see some open maps with options. Also wish they would’ve changed some things from the first game. They switched the characters and optimized some interface but it’s almost exactly the same. Not even sure why there is a “world map” when you can’t do anything four read about a place that you will never visit in game. I hope there is an update for it and we get to play more campaigns.

Loved demons rise but 2 is better, more polished


Great game. Only “complaint” is I want moooar!!!!!!

Awesome, but...

...just some things I'd like to point out.

1. The game crashes way too much, especially during Story Battle 10, where it is guaranteed to crash at least once (for me anyway). Whenever I reload the auto-save, I can carry on as normal but then it'll crash without fail. I cannot get past Story Battle 10 as a result.

2. The screenshots show a button at the bottom left that allows you to select your next hero. It's missing in my game, though. Was it removed in an update?

3. In the shop/inventory management screen, there have been more than one instance where my items vanish into thin air while moving them but accidentally click on an empty spot. It's painful because there have been some legendary items that I bought with my hard-earned cash, and all I did was tap the screen somewhere else by mistake and it's lost forever...

4. The fade-to-black transitions from menu to menu take too long. Should be much faster. Speaking of faster...

5. ...whenever I go to the shop or inventory management, it shows a message then after about five seconds the button to take me to the desired screen appears. Why can't the button be there right at the start? Why do I have to wait? There is a lot of unnecessary waiting in this game.

6. I should be able to select multiple heroes whenever I want to switch them out, not be forced to switch them one by one. Again, it wastes time. If I need to switch out my team, I don't want to have to go to the hero selection screen, pick a hero, go through another long fade-to-black transition before returning to the menu, then repeat the process for the other five heroes.

7. The font in the hero selection/status screens is too small. I'm using an iPhone 6, which to me is quite big so the font size should be appropriately big enough too. Perhaps if you make the font bigger, but spread the heroes' information over two pages, that'd be great.

I really love this game, really I do. There is so much depth and strategy involved and leveling up my heroes is a lot of fun. But these issues hamper my enjoyment which is why for now I am giving it four stars instead of the five I'm itching to give. You're a great developer and I love what you're doing in the community so please hear me out and fix these in a future update.

Developer Response

Thanks for the feedback. A lot of these items were fixed in the last patch. Whatever I couldn't are on my to do list. I did remove some large textures from story 10 so that might fix the crash issue. If not, let me know.
