Explore five different worlds, fight their monstrous inhabitants and try to survive and find an ancient artifact to save the world from destruction.
For every game session, the game will create new environments full of challenges and surprises, populated with monsters and ancient magical artifacts.
There are nine different player classes, each one designed with a unique playing style. Some of them are combat-focused, others have access to magic spells in 5 different schools of magic while others must rely on their special martial skills to survive.
As you advance through the game, you will find over 40 different types of monsters with distinct skills and abilities, you will be able to charm them using magic spells and make them join your quest. By using some of the ancient magic found in the dungeon, you can unlock more advanced forms of their powers and skills.
The game keeps track of your adventures on its online server, sharing the in-game events with your friends in real time, maintaining a leaderboard of the most successful heroes as well as a graveyard of memorable characters which you can share in social media.
Ananias is a classic turn-based “roguelike” adapted for modern media, it removes the cumbersome movement and complex commands while keeping all the features from the genre that make the games fun and enjoyable: turn-based combat, random level generation, and long term item strategy.

Ratings and Reviews
Solid Roguelike Action
Anyone who has followed the indie roguelike scene will be aware of Ananias, but in case you haven't heard of it, this app is a very solid, approachable, and time-tested roguelike game called Ananias.
Mechanically, it's like most other roguelike games. You create a character, charge into a procedurally generated death labyrinth, and eventually get killed. Rinse and repeat, learning as you go, to get further and further into the depths.
As roguelikes go, Ananias has a lot of diversity and depth to it, but it's wrapped in a more-approachable-than-usual presentation. And this iOS port lends itself really well to the mobile form factor. The UI is straightforward and easy to use, and navigating the game world includes affordances like fast-travel that solve problems that typically plague other mobile roguelike games. Overall, this feels like a solid, well-produced port of a classic roguelike game. Challenging for veterans of the genre, but accessible to newcomers.
My recommendation is to definitely pick it up if you are at all inclined to like games of the roguelike genre. It is well worth the price of admission, because there are many hours of gameplay here. And if you're new to the roguelike genre, this is a fantastic introduction. Five stars.
Great traditional rogue like
If you like games like pixel dungeon, cavern, and cardinal quest, you will love this. Just a great randomly generated, turn based crawler.
