One title missing from this week's out now post was Soul Knight [Free], a top-down rougelike shooter that we covered recently. Well, some last-minute approval issues kept the game from releasing on time, and it was expected to be delayed on iOS by a week. The good news is that the approval issues were resolved sooner than later, and now you can play ChillyRoom's take on roguelike shooters for yourself on iOS.
Soul Knight feels kind of like a cross between Nuclear Throne and Binding of Isaac [$14.99]. You have a bunch of character classes that you can unlock with different character classes. You have to contend with limited ammo, though it seems like it only becomes an issue over the long term, as refills are plentiful early on. The levels are laid out in grid style, a la Isaac, though there isn't a boss fight every level like in that game. I'm always down for more roguelike-style shooters, so I anticipate digging more into Soul Knight. If you're playing this one, jump into the game's forum thread.
