ENYO (Free), by solitaire mobile game specialist TinyTouchTales, is a roguelike game with intuitive and interesting game play. You move about bashing enemies into spikes or pits of lava with your shield, or pulling them with a grappling hook. There are a variety of enemies each with their own movement patterns, attacks, strengths, and weaknesses—all of which can be used against them. ENYO has been out over a year now and there is a major content update on its way. A new mode of play, called Odysee, is coming soon along with new enemy types to defeat. Can’t wait to try it out? You’re in luck, TinyTouchTales is looking for beta testers to kick the tires.
If you’ve not played ENYO it is worth checking out, especially if you’re a fan of games like Hoplite ($2.99) and 868-HACK ($4.99). It plays similarly to those mobile classics and brings the same level of challenge, as well as being extremely accessible for those unfamiliar with the genre.
