You are stranded on rogue planet Zaga-33! Explore deep into its mysterious caverns. Fight off horrible green monsters and discover esoteric alien artifacts. Destroy the alien Cortex to escape.

"Few games are as hypnotic or menacing as Zaga-33, a top-down exploration adventure in which you somehow work your way through an oppressive alien world. Fast-paced and pleasingly nasty." - 500 Must-have Apps, The Telegraph, 3 October 2012

Beautifully deep music, unsettling gameplay


I love, love love Zaga33. You get an unsettling alien exploration game with music that sometimes makes you stop just to listen. Each level makes small changes to the procedurally generated (!) music. You are taken into an unending soundscape that is a masterpiece in its own right. Think of it as a music track you buy that changes every time you listen. Losing health or dying outright brings the music back to low-key but down yet another path. The calming atmosphere you get from regaining enough health is unique to this game out of thousands I have played. On the gameplay side, it's an awesomely styled room-by-room tribute to 90s roguelikes. The graphics are symbolic and minimal, with a chilling alien palette that does shift more morbidly as you reach the end. There is plenty of room in each chamber for strategy, though sometimes a crucial mistake early on will bury you many rooms later. This game is so good it makes me question free will. I would call it pseudosimple - Michael Brough has tuned it to a perfectly building fever pitch that starts out generous for beginners but turns into roguelike Deliverance before you know it. Just get the game. I am so mad it has so few reviews. Reward a genius today. Please. Feel free to use any part of this review Mr. Brough. - Lionel Houde



Mike gives you so called gamers great games. One question, there should be three times the reviews for this great game. Mike I'm sure puts his heart and soul into these games and I wonder how many so called gamers appreciate his effort? I challenge all you so called gamers, let's rally around Mike and support him. You so called gamers are a stupid bunch if you don't
