Dinofarm Games, creators of 100 Rogues [$2.99], have just released their latest game for iOS, Auro [$1.99]. The game has been out for a few months on Android, but the iOS version has been delayed due to a series of technical issues that prevented the game from making its way to the App Store. Well, the team at Dinofarm finally got their issues, related to the Flash nature of the game and App Store submissions, sorted out, and now you can finally play this one for yourself without going over to the dark side.

The game itself is described as a "a monster-bumping adventure," where you use a variety of tactics in a turn-based environment to try and bump the monsters that are coming after you, into the water. So hopefully it's as fun as knocking enemies off the edge of the world in Only One [Free], but as an entire turn-based game. Dinofarm has a tutorial video with fifteen-plus minutes of gameplay and strategy discussion in case you want to do a deep dive into this one before you check it out, or need some tips to do better:

    Very nice game, deep thought processes are required on even some of the later tutorials, I'm liking

  • armilla

    All you Roguelike, Hoplite, 868-HACK fans: I implore you to buy this! Insanely deep, and will be an enduring game for sure. It's been in the works for 4 years and it shows!

  • Ubisububi

    Yup. I need this.

  • Sven Van de Perre

    Oh god yes!

    Is this game going to be ignored as much as 100 Rogues was, by the developers?

    • ronnyz

      Ignored? 100rouges was updated many times, at least I've had plenty of time with it on multiple iOS devices for quite a long time.

      • Goggles789

        Sorry, last I checked it was ignored for a huge stretch of time and I gave up on it due to it not working on my device at the time. Didn't realize it was updated recently, might give it another go!

        The designer posted on another forum that this is the first of his games that he completely owns the rights to and controls and he promises a better experience than his previously published games (Empire was a good idea but not great execution).

  • Edwin Ramirez

    Dark side? LOL. 😀

  • PoloBaquerizoH

    • bababewey

      What device?

    • Shiser

      Gegoben, I'm one of the game's developers. Try freeing up some space on your phone and see if that helps. Let me know either way!
