Dungeons of Chaos is a retro-style 2D RPG that takes you on an epic journey with numerous spells, skills and tactical combat to employ in order to win the battle against evil. Huge locations to explore (both unique and randomised). Totally ad-free. >20000 sold so far for both major OS together, and 4.8 star rating and a very engaged fanbase on our facebook page, where I discuss frequent updates and additions.

Favourite fan quote to date (Kristian Borcheck): "If you were a fan of Ultima 3,4,5 or games of that ilk then this game will feel like coming home"

"An Old-School-RPG with great character development, rewarding exploration, turn-based combat and well designed dungeons and quests. Retro-Fun!" - RPGWatch

"Deeply immersive and a whole lot of fun, Dungeons of Chaos belongs on the iPad of any self-respecting 1980s role-playing fan." - iRumorsnow

"If Avernum and Ultima 4ish had a genius baby, this would be it." - Aldinach

"The little guy who made this game made a gem. [...] It's very fun and deep. Creating characters is the bomb. It's great!" -- anabolicMike

- retro-style RolePlayingGame (RPG) in the spirit of old classics
- vast locations to explore in a top-down 2D tile-based view
- many different character classes, spells and skills to employ. Guilds can give access to advanced classes
- rewarding quests to fulfil
- atmospheric music, and detailed lighting and line-of-sight visual mechanics
- non-linear content and exploration: many locations exist outside the main storyline, with unique monsters and treasure and secrets
- some locations are fully randomised and different each time you play (procedural content generation). Some are randomised and re-settable. And there are over 30 fixed locations supporting the main storyline.
- many rare item properties make for over 5,000,000 combinations that let your armour, weapons and accessories take on powerful bonuses
- defeat many different monsters with unique abilities and challenges. level up your characters and upgrade their abilities.
- find important NPCs to expand your skill sets, find magic books to boost your spell knowledge and improve your equipment by trading your bounty with various shop owners
- intricate fight mechanics: flanking or being flanked makes an encounter change from being easy to being dangerous, and vice versa; using the right boost/support/attack spells and skills will prove vital for survival
- control a party of 6 characters, which you can generate using 9 starter classes and unique character features
- try out different classes, experience different randomised locations, find different equipment, for great replay value
- various difficulty levels. Higher difficulty yields better loot but also much tougher enemies and game mechanics

Some gameplay videos:

Dungeons of Chaos is designed to work on as many devices as possible and back to iOS6. Issues DO arise on very old devices with low memory (RAM of 256MB or less), such as iPad2 or iPad Mini or iPhone 4S and 5C if the latter run iOS 8 or 9. The game works fine on iPhone 5S,6,6S,6Plus and on newer iPads like iPadAir 1 or 2, or iPad3.

Amazing depth and great feedback


When I first got this game I loved the simple 2-d design but was quickly amazed by the actual depth to the story and the combat system. The different types of classes and party combinations means hour of replay ability plus one of the few games with no in app purchases. The online community around this game is always quick to respond and help out new players and getting updates from the actual creators is extremely nice. 5/5 would buy again and will be gifting this game to friends.

Old School game with a lot more going on


I originally got this game due to a bit of nostalgia from being a fan of Ultima and Final Fantasy back in the day. I was very pleasantly surprised to find this has so much more going on under the hood than just being a retro game! Great story with fantastic character customization and combat. Exceptional replay value and very supportive community on Facebook. I’ve spent more time playing this game than many I’ve paid $40-60 for! I absolutely recommend this without hesitation.

Childhood 2.0


This RP entry is one for the record books. I feel like I’m 12 years old again, on my Commodore 64. I cant put this game down, and it’s seemingly endless. The best value on the App Store if you like old school RPG’s. And, the best part is the developer keeps updating this!!! The only shame is that the App Store only allows up to 5 stars.
