    After completely un- and reinstalling my problems went away. Something must have broken the installation. Runs fine now in iPad 2 iOS 7.12.

    Regarding my huge backlist of games, I haven't gone too far into the depths of Card Dungeon. But as far as I played, it's a definitely original roguelike, worth playing if you don't mind its leisurely pace.

    Still on my wishlist and I still want to know if it's now playable in its current state. It hasn't been updated since March so it's safe to say that it might remain in its current version indefinitely.

    Anyone still playing this? Can you provide me with a mini-review if so, and if there are any major issues in the current build?

    I went through some iterations of this and frankly, I would recommend Loot and Legends for better gameplay, similar board game feeling and if you are really in to rogue like, Desktop Dungeon may be a better bet.

    I added it to my 2015 mobile game sales haul and I really like it. If I had to guess, I'd say some people are annoyed by the disposability of character abilities, which is kind of the point of the game. You're forced to make due with the abilities you are dealt by drops, because they're finite and need to be constantly replaced. This forces the player to utilize a variety of abilities and adapt tactics to the situation at hand.

    For those interested, there is equipable gear, gold, shops, etc. It has all the trappings of a dungeon crawler in terms of game mechanics.

    I can understand why some might not like it. Lots of RPGs gear players to speccing their character a particular way and plowing through the whole thing in the one particular way. That's nice, but doesn't require as much thought and adaptation as this one.

    Oh boy I am digging this one up!

    I am kind of digging through. My backlog of bought but never played games and found this one. It is not bad and most if not all complains have been addressed. It even runs on iOS 10 beta so that says something.

    But I have to agree if you are looking for something similar I find loot and legends to be superior in every way. Except the rogue like portion.

    Still it's not terrible or even bad, but at this point in Time 3 € seem a bit steep, if you can get it on a sale, go ahead :)
