Enter the depths of the ancient city of Angor and prepare for battle. Form a mercenary party of adventurers, sell swords, rogue sorcerers and assassins and enlist with an army of Dwarves trying to retake their ancient homeland. Fight in a brutal campaign against goblins, undead, ratmen and the demon lords they worship.
Demon's Rise is a turn-based tactical game where players must lead a party of six heroes through the bowels of an underground city. Battles are intense affairs where the proper use of terrain and cover is as important as the choice of spell or attack.
BATTLES: Fight through 35 grueling campaign levels and another 51 patrol missions.
CHARACTERS: Choose a band of six heroes from 30 playable character classes. Each class has unique strengths, weaknesses and special abilities.
REWARDS: Uncover the treasures of the old kingdom ... find gold or thousands of possible weapons, pieces of armour and artifacts. Equip them to make your heroes stronger or sell them off and buy something more fitting.
EXPERIENCE: As your heroes fight, they gain experience, level up and unlock powerful new spells and abilities.
COVER / TERRAIN: Position is key to victory. Place your heroes behind cover for protection or next to a magical shrine for extra power.
MORALE: Your heroes and their enemies may panic when they see the battle go badly or enter a berserker fury if they see an ally cut down. Form a tight battle line where your stronger heroes can lend courage to the weaker ones and use intimidation as a weapon against your foes.
ABILITIES: Wizards can launch fireballs, cast protective wards or summon powerful monsters to their aid. Illusionists can trick their enemies into switching sides or make them panic without reason. Mighty warriors can make powerful weapon strikes, become berserk or heal themselves during battle. All 30 player classes and many of the enemies you will encounter can perform such abilities and can use them to turn defeat into victory.
Demon's Rise is a traditional game with NO IN-APP PURCHASES or unfair "pay to win" mechanics. Victory is earned through courage, strength and tactics and not additional spending.
* Requires an iPad 3, iPhone 5, iPad Mini 2 or higher.

Ratings and Reviews
I reinstall just so I can leave a review, although I've been in the game a while back it's still one of the best I've played on mobile. No by gem or gold scams; fun turn based tactical combat in a fantasy setting. Plenty of content and characters. I was a little disappointed when it ended abruptly; looking at the map it appeared that I had only finished one territory of what looked like a huge map. I'm not sure if the developer planned on adding additional campaign areas (I would have paid for extra content!) but at this point I don't think it's happening. The game as it stands however is well worth the money. I own all three titles by this developer and can say this is the most polished. If you like fantasy tactics, definitely pick it up and consider the other titles by the same developer.
Turn based sword & sorcery fans
Good start. Def worth the .99 I paid. Would like to see more content, but there's a 2. Not many games like this avail for ios. Small dev, has updated. No in-app crap. Music and voices became annoying, utilized option to turn down. Like having double speed for combat. I'll probably get tagged for this, but keep up the attractive female characters. Support.
Camera update fixed the rotation prob. No top down tho, unless on screen controls selected.
Reply to dev:
Impressive, timely response. Confirm top down controls fixed - ui interface no longer needed. Load times appear to have improved. Continue to replay w/ diff classes. No glaring ai or randomizer imbalance presenting yet. Add 1/2 star.
Would like to see these games evolve. Some suggestions: base and army build, random encounters, choice affect world, economy, factions, character depth and interaction, battle damage, visible gear.
Developer Response ,
Thanks. Pushing another update today that adds vertical camera controls in the new methods. Also adds iPhone X UI support and fixes several more bugs.
Can’t get enough
Love these games from wave light. Hours and hours of strategy. Tried the game on easy and won, but moving up to normal makes the game a real chess match. Don’t over extend your troops in battle or expect them to die. Best part is you don’t have to pay anything more than the price of the game. I will definitely buy all of wave light games future sequels of this game
