HyperRogue

HyperRogue


You are a lone outsider in a strange, non-Euclidean world.. As a Rogue, your goal is to collect as many treasures as possible. However, collecting treasures attracts dangerous monsters (on the other hand, killing the monsters allows more treasures to be generated).

Collecting enough treasure also allows you to find rare magical orbs, which grant you one-time or time-limited special abilities.

The world is a combination of eleven types of lands. Each land type has specific style (monsters, treasure, magical orbs, terrain features). Collecting treasures only attracts more monsters in lands of the same type, so you can try to collect lots of treasure in several different lands! Ultimately, you will be able to access Hell, and look for the fabulous Orbs of Yendor which are hidden there.

The game is inspired by the roguelike genre (you are not allowed to save as the game is short enough and reloading the same saved file several times would be cheating), as well as puzzle games such as DROD (Deadly Rooms of Death). HyperRogue is one of just few games played on a hyperbolic plane.

Support HyperRogue (or cheat) by downloading HyperRogue Gold. If you want a small app, download HyperRogue Lite without music. Also play the desktop version of HyperRogue!

Quite Interesting Its going to take a lot of attempts to figure out all of the stuff available in this seemingly simple game.

Didn't like the music So I'm trying the other, lite, version. This app requires 0 permissions. My thanks to the developer for that.

Amazing rogue variant. The crazy interface is just brilliant. I would just change the music for a more minimalistic approach

Interesting take on an old genre The game is played on a hexagonal grid on a sphere of sorts. The only motivation to play is to gather treasures in each land, so the gameplay becomes rather repetitive quickly. The combat in this game is unusual -- all attacks are one hit kills, so movement and placement of your character becomes tantamount to moving chess pieces. UI is very poor (modal, unreasonable scrolling limits, etc), and the controls need more tweaking. Overall, interesting for a short while, but ultimately uninstallable.

The best Android game A true Rouge in spirit, while completely innovative and perfect for a smartphone.
