Guide a fighter, a wizard, or a thief deep into a hostile dungeon to wrest the town of Hallemot from the clutches of the tyrannical minotaur Asterion, in this streamlined roguelike. Engaging, thought-provoking gameplay that's different every time, but fast enough to take in bite-sized chunks.

Tap or hold to move; move into enemies to engage them in melee, or tap spells to cast them. Tap your character's portrait to view your current stats, and even though character death is permanent, it's also half the fun!

Whats new

    - Fixed controls on tablets
    - Setting changes now saves (e.g. music/sounds)
    - Various UI fixes
    - Fixed rare save-game crashing bug
    - Some text improvements

Unfinished Don't buy this unfinished game. The coins have no purpose. I get the feeling dev didn't really care and just wanted to make money.

Not exactly what I expected for that price The price is rather steep, imho. Althought the game is well made (haven't experienced any bugs yet -Xperia Play) there are some strange UN-rogue-like elements implemented. Why does my character NOT replenish health by walking, for starters? I have yet to see another game that has this feature and claims to be a rogue-like. Also, difficulty spikes. I usually end on the forth floor, if that. Suddenly there appear super-strong enemies of wich 3-4 jump at me at once and... boom. Dead again. Also, my character keeps finding always the same items in dungeons, depending on which class I've chosen. So not much variety here. Otherwise a good game with a retro feel, but the difficulty is unforgiving and should be updated more often.

SO MUCH POTENTIAL Gameplay is the best of any roguelike on the go, super smooth, but seriously no beefed up boss battle after all that buildup? Useless coins, totally unbalanced spells. Talk about an ANTICLIMAX. Go play Desktop Dungeons and then add some variety to this unfinished mess.

The perfect mobile roguelike I love how easy the game is to fire up and enjoy. It's great to have a traditional roguelike that works well on a phone

Update! No longer crashes thanks to developer! Downloaded this only to have it crash on an unrooted Nexus 7 FHD. I contacted the developer and I was provided with a working copy! It plays beautifully with no problems so far! Kudos to the great customer service. Also, the game is a great little simple roguelike when you have some time to kill :)

Amazing game. Talented developer I am new to the indie game development scene and decided to read an article by this games dev. It really spoke to me so I decided to buy his game. Love it so far. Thank you for an awesome game

Cool Great game,hope you make more games like this

Georges Mackoul

Nice and simple roguelike

A Google User

Well worth it. Finally, beat the game! Wizard with 3 fire, 1 sleep, and 1 polymorph spell. Romp stomp to the end and a glorious finale. Works perfect on samsung g s2. Encountered zero issues our glitches.

Great, simplified roguelike Addicting! Bought the PC version (GameDevBundle) and fell in love. Android version is a great port. Item mgmt is almost auto & is smart so you get to focus on playing. Controls great. Wish game wouldn't close when screen goes off. It saves, just a waste of time to keep starting game up. Overall, best $3 I've spent on a game

A Google User

Excellent Great execution porting the game to android, the game itself is very polished and the touch controls work well. Recommended if you like simple roguelikes (like morgue).


Great fast rogue but has faults Great smooth fast dungeon crawler but as others state, not enough levels, no store to use coins in and no high score hurt lasting gameplay. Feels incomplete for the money.

A Google User

Would like an update... I know CQ2 is in development but an update for some bugs and to make full screen would be awesome. Please dont forget about us...

A Google User

Good and the bad. First of all, this game is brilliant. I LOVE retro graphics and a smooth gaming engine so this game is perfect for any retro gamer looking for a simple dungeon crawler. The only downside is that it is too short! When I beat it I was devostated because I just wanted to keep playing. Please make a endless floors mode randomly generated or something? Also, coins currently have to use, so a store would be wonderful. Besides that, keep up the good work guys! :)

monsters should open doors Is too easy because you can wait to recharge your spells knowing that no one will come. If monsters can open doors or implement food then will be more difficoult. Easy to beat with wizard or thief using only 3 potions. Can make achievements like: "end without using potions" or without polymorphing

Awesome Roguelike game I was having fun playing this game on my Galaxy Tab 10.1 but for the longest time it would not play correctly on my Evo 4G LTE. However as of yesterdays Jelly Bean update the game became playable again. I can see how this style of game is not for everyone but for those of us that grew up on the 80's with tons of Roge like games this is a blast from the past. Well worth the money.

A Google User

Freaking Awesome It's a crying shame this is so hidden in the play store. Big "Desktop Dungeons" feel. Fantastic for those looking for a simple roguelike.

A Google User

Good game Fast paced roguelike. Simple but fun. Big minus because it has no highscore and no updates for almost a year.

Jason M

It Is a Blast I agree with the other good reviews. Great roguelike game that deserves more attention. It was hard to find this game. After looking at a PC review, I had no idea this game was on android. Accidently stumbled upon it, now im hooked. It is not as brutal as pixel dungeon (graceful learning curve for beginners). Enjoy.

A Google User

Sweet roguelike Solid design, fun game play. Only negative is it's too short and there are too few options for spells / items. Release an update! Please ;-)

Jonathan Ellis

Beta quality No way to see status effects. Inventory management is practically user-hostile. You collect gold but it affects nothing, not even scores, which are not tracked. Only eight dungeon levels; you will probably beat it on your first or second play through, if you don’t get bored first. I do give it a second star because the *idea* of a hyper-streamlined dungeon crawl has a lot of potential, but the authors have already moved on to other projects so don't look for improvements to this one.

Great game, but buggy on One X (AMENDED REVIEW: Fixed, works great after update. 5 stars.) Great game on desktops and a great concept for mobile, but sadly does not seem to work on the AT&T HTC One X. Does not fit screen dimensions or register button presses. Any other One X user having this issue? (Unmodded/unrooted/S-ON device)

A Google User

Nice concept. Controls are awful. Controls change from small view to map, often double count taps, and involve tapping perilously to your potions.

William Russler

15 minutes to win 1st time. Would be a fun game if it were more than a demo. The full version is demo sized. You don't even get to fight the boss. He just leaves when you kill enough minions. I can't believe the other reviews of this game are even real. Big let down.

Dee Newcum

quick games This is a great concept. Sure, it's better suited to touchscreen play. What many people don't realize though is that the gameplay is streamlined, it's rather fast-paced for a dungeon crawl. The way crits are displayed, the way you don't have to press a key to display --More-- messages when picking up equipment... you can keep playing without any delay. It's perfect for quick 3 minute games whenever you have a spare minute.

A Google User

Great game Would be nice to see some sort of scoring system implemented. a high score screen maybe? End game review when you sure would be cool.

A Google User

STILL Not working on my Sensation... STILL Doesn't run on my HTC Sensation since the game was released, I've been patient but clearly this will never be addressed.

A Google User

Enjoyable but short Could use double the levels, and a way to keep score and use coins. Thief stupid easy, other chars too hard.

Ford Vazquez

Buy it Hours of game play fun. I beat the game using all three characters.

A Google User

Great Roguelike I love this game so far, but there are a few problems: *The game doesn't work in flipped landscape mode, so I can't play while my tablet is plugged in on my stand. It would be nice if this was remedied in a future update. *The bottom of the screen appears to be cut off by the android task bar. Newer devices do not have physical bottons, and instead they are across the bottom of the screen. *What's with the sticky broadcasts permission?

Great rogue like RPG. I've had a great time playing this. Lots to explore, steady challenge and well designed.

A Google User

Excellent Best roguelike on Android, shame its so unknown. Great retro graphics, music, and challenging game. Wish it was a little longer and a way to turn off auto equip

A Google User

help, fix, issues shows black screen, then plays a chain noise, then exits after 5 seconds when i try to play. htc rezound, android 4.0, unrooted

Adam Mangan

Not bad for a rogue crawler I was hoping it would be more though, ie more RPG or combat.

A Google User

A Great Retro Adventure! Having played Desktop Dungeons on the PC, i was reluctant to destroy my life for a second time and grab this on the PC, but i gave in and got this for my S2, i'm glad i did! This is just a blast for adventure fans and is easily worth the entry fee!

A Google User

A fun game but it was too easy. All you have to do is pick the theif and take 2 or 3 backstabbing skills then proceed to rolfstomp the game.

A Google User

Best lite roguelike. Just the right amount of complexity, graphics, pace, etc. Had problems with crashing and choppyness at first, but it cleared up after a reboot on my tablet.

Dimouse Blau

Too short Are you serious - paying such a money for a game which can be played through for less then an hour? Could be much-much better. I was expecting it to be close to CQ2 flash version, hope it will be released on Android...

Good but short Please add more content.

Mark Fournier

Not enough bang for your buck This game is enjoyable, but too short with not enough to do. Would be worth it if the game was less expensive I guess.

A Google User

I really like this one I can only give 4 stars until you add scores for lv and floor, gold and maybe achievements and some way to sell stuff. I loved it, floor6 first time and 7th floor scond try. Please add to this the graphics are actually really joyful. The play is leasurful and games dont take too much time.

Crash on open on Kitkat Nexus 7 2013 on KitKat 4.4 game will not open.

John Mak

Game doesn't start in KitKat. Gets an error and immediately closes.

John McDaniel

Likely the best mobile rogue like crawler Its pretty much got everything you need to keep trying and dying :)
