Crescent Moon Announces Hack ‘N Slash RPG ‘Runic Rampage’ is Heading to Mobile

Developer Electrocosmos, which is in reality solo German developer Alexander Leps, released the top-down hack ‘n slash RPG Runic Rampage onto Steam this past May to a positive reception. In the game you play as a dwarf named Grimbard who wields a mighty hammer and can cast some neat magical spells, and your job is to find the fragments of the mystical rune stone that used to protect your people, but has somehow gone missing which caused the kingdom to plunge into war and chaos. You’ll traverse many lands on your quest to “Uncover the truth about your kingdom’s downfall and change the destiny of your nation." Oh, and it’s also absurdly gory. Here’s the Steam launch trailer for Runic Rampage to give you an idea of what it’s like.

So why am I telling you about this Steam game? Because today, Crescent Moon Games has announced that they’re partnering up with Electrocosmos to bring Runic Rampage to mobile. This seems like the type of game that will be a perfect fit for mobile gamers, and for some reason there’s a real lack of high-quality hack ‘n slash games on the App Store. There are tons and tons of cookie cutter free to play ones though, but none with the charm and personality I see in Runic Rampage. The game also uses procedurally generated maps for its levels, so it’s pretty much made for playing over and over again. No word on a release date just yet but you can follow along with news about the mobile version of Runic Rampage in our forums in the meantime.
