** The critically acclaimed dungeon crawler finally comes to iOS **
There are dark places in the world inhabited by evil denizens. Places filled with danger and foreboding where no ordinary man would dare to journey. However, there are a few who are willing to risk death in the name of good, in the name of justice, in the name of.. valuable loot!
Hack, Slash, Loot is a single-player turn-based dungeon crawler. Take control of a lone hero and explore sprawling dungeons, fight dangerous monsters, and most importantly, plunder valuable treasures.
Hack, Slash, Loot features thousands of items, monsters, and dungeon features, and with a new dungeon created every game you can be sure that no two plays will ever be the same. Boasting easy to master controls you'll be adventuring in no time, but there is still enough depth to challenge the most hardened of adventurers.
What's New in Version 1.4
Added auto game saving when app closes
Almost unplayable on iPhone
This was always an almost buy on Steam, but the reviews always talked me out of it. This isn't bad on the iPad, but the buttons and textures are so tiny on the phone that it's almost unplayable. And when fully zoomed in the game area blocks the action texts. Don't buy this for your phone. Not a bad game though.
Too small to be playable
It's a ripoff. The game is too small & doesn't adjust to be playable. It shouldn't even be in the App Store.
Good Gateway into the world of Roguelikes...
This is a nice little "beginner level" game for anyone not familiar with the world of roguelike RPGs: NETHACK, ADOM, DUNGEON CRAWL STONE SOUP, etc. HACK, SLASH, LOOT is not as robust as the titles I just mentioned but it's not meant to be; it's a "coffee- break roguelike" which features all the core elements of a roguelike game: procedural/randomized dungeons, permadeath, randomized loot and items, turn based mechanics, and insane difficulty level (you will die over and over. A LOT). If that's not your thing, then roguelikes are probably not for you. Otherwise, read on.
The graphics are beautiful, with nifty pixel art (though I agree that it could be bigger). The music/ soundtrack might be the best I've ever heard in a roguelike. The UI is simple and friendly. The game is VERY random...even more so than most roguelikes. That may turn some people off. As I said earlier, be warned: the difficulty level is insane. And if you play the Wood Elf Archer (who is rather Nerf'd in my opinion), be prepared to die often as he misses his shot A LOT (50% chance he misses his target). You can also play as a Human wizard, and human female Saracen (as well as many unlockable characters). HACK, SLASH, LOOT is a fun, addictive game that has nice graphics, grade A soundtrack, intuitive UI, insane difficulty level, randomized dungeons and loot, and permanent death. In short, it's a simple roguelike that's an awesome time waster. If you enjoy this game, look further into the rabbit hole of roguelikes: BROGUE, TOME4, ANGBAND, ALIENSRL, INFRA ARCANA.
