It seems like every possible roguelike iteration has been done on the App Store, so it's really rad to see one that feels like a fresh spin. Clever writing, fast-paced action, and loads of bad guys to slay make Heroes of Loot feel totally new. I do sort of bad in our video, but, I had a lot of fun.

Check it out:

Heroes of Loot should be available tonight at 11:00 PM Eastern, and if you want to check out what our community is saying about the game be sure to check out the thread for the game.

International App Store Link: Heroes of Loot, $1.99

    This doesn't look like it plays like a Roguelike at all. Take it from a long time Roguelike fan, the App Store is still lacking in quality titles for the genre. This might be fun, who knows, but it does not look anything like a Roguelike. Even Zaga33 is more of a Roguelike then something like this.

      Just watched the vid. This is an Insta-Buy, son!

        So I'm not sure this is rogue-like, or just 'pac-man' like? Seems interesting, but from the video not sure if it's great, ok, or an annoying endless grind.

      I'm gonna watch the vid. I love roguelikes. I play dcss on my android tablet constantly. There's a version on google play but that's not the one to use. The devs have a tile one on thier trunk and its utterly amazing. I love dcss. Haha.

      • anabolicMike

        Damn it. It's not a roguelike. I'm saddened by that. To me a roguelike has to be like rogue was. You might say no kidding bud but lots of guys don't follow that. Bit dungeon, though fun, is not a roguelike. Turn based, randomness and tons of content and control. Hehheh. Powder is a roguelike. Nethack is called a back but ill throw that in there with roguelikes. This game? NOT A ROGUELIKE!

        So it's a roguelike-like?

  • Panzerbush

    I like to say "Roguelike".

    • somedumbgamer

      Right, that's what I meant. I like 100 Rogues and Fargoal but haven't been crazy about others like BIt Dungeon, gues

  • ImJPaul

    Wow. Ya. Agree with everyone this isn't really a rouge-like at all but I'm sold. Looks really awesome.

  • Thawkk

    I'm torn on this game. I like the graphics, they remind me of Super Crate Box. The gameplay looks a little too simple and mindless for my tastes though.

      While I agree to all that, I also think this walkthru skipped some of the subtleties by just zipping thru the quest & shop & stuff. Not sure if there was something actually there or not.

  • Skylighter1996

    Instabuy for me!!!

  • Tim Jordan

    I think I follow folk, I guess it is far more Gauntlet with some roguelike trappings (random dungeon and permadeath)? Still worth my support in less than a half hour.

  • Skylighter1996

    Got it!

  • Handsomeluke

    LOL this looks like a blast, this is the kinda games I like on iPhone. also love all the TA Plays keep it up :)

  • Schpank

    Looks pretty mindless. My guess is by level 10 I'm starting to yawn, by level 15... there is no level 15 because I've already erased it from my device.

    Looks reminiscent of Bit Dungeon, altho Bit Dungeon has some 'equipment sets' stuff & you're only a fighter/warrior type. Can you play all the different classes in this game?
    I didn't see any char screens, no skills or abilities, and so on.
    The only connection to "rogue-like" genre that I see is that the levels are procedurally generated, yes? Rogue (and derivatives) also present the player with many options & strategy choices PLUS a lot of gear to figure out (potions, rings, equipment, weapons, scrolls) which aren't auto-identified.

    So I'm not sure this is rogue-like, or just 'pac-man' like? Seems interesting, but from the video not sure if it's great, ok, or an annoying endless grind.

  • Tiago Machado

    Binding of Isaac anyone??

  • Jeremicci

    Not big on dungeon games, but I like this developer and this one looks interesting...
    Hmmm...

  • GiHubb

    Solomon's Keep seems like a by far superior option for iPhone. And it's bloody ancient! So not really excited about this repetitive endless dungeoner.

    Bought it just after a minute and a half of watching the video.
