    Hello guys! Happy New Year!
    I'm Jin from WOMBO COMBO GAMES. We are a small indie game studio from Japan.
    Today we will share with you our 1st game---TAVERN GUARDIANS!

    TAVERN GUARDIANS is a Hack & Slash game through match-3 puzzle on iOS.
    You can experience high pace action battle in this game which is totally different from former Puzzle RPG.​


    Play Free DEMO!----> Please tell us your AppID in comments.(Test Flight)
    - It's a roguelike game, and there are 4 from all the 10 scenes and 2 from all the 7 bosses in this DEMO
    - Due to the time zone difference, we may not send you an invitation immediately. But we will send it ASAP.
    - Please be aware that the minimum required hardware is iPhone5s or iPad Air.

    Hack & Slash Meets Puzzle
    It's a Puzzle Action Game. Thus, not like any other Puzzle RPG,the enemies are in the operable area and they will advance across the tiles to attack the player. Enemies’ movement and skills will change the tiles’ position at any time, which brings varieties and challenges to the battle.

    Simply matching the tiles adjacent to the enemy, player can easily attack the enemy. Different effects occur according to the guardians special skills during the attack.

    Strategic battle
    You can choose one from all the 4 guardians. Each guardian has his/her own unique skills. Also,we've prepared all kinds of active and passive items. You may build your own play style by combining these skills and items with your wisdom to challenge for the high score.

    Rogue-like Elements
    This is a rogue-like game with lots of randomization. We've made over 60 items and nearly 50 enemies. The abundant random combination will greatly increase the joy of replay.

    This looks like it has potential to be one of the better puzzle RPGs out there. Really impressed.

    One thing I can't tell for sure from the trailer: is it strictly turn-based or is there any sort of speed element to it (as in Bejeweled Blits, for instance).

    Thank you for the comment. Our game is strictly turn-based.
    Please try the free demo, if you are interested.

    PS:↓Why we chose turn-based battle system in this game↓
    After massive testing and adjusting, we found real-time battle system (like Bejeweled Blitz) will be too harsh. Players take too much pressure easily and then make lots of mistakes, which makes the game rhythm not very smooth instead. So we tried the turn based style and made lots of adjustments in the player control system and gameplay difficulty .After that, players could play the game fast and smooth like an action game, furthermore, player have plenty of time to consider when they are in difficulties.

    Hi, Jin. I’ve played the game for about 1h and beat the game with both characters. I prefer the paladin by the way ,he has a lot of changes to survive.
    The idea of combining puzzle and hack-slash is great and there’s lots fun in it!
    When will you game be released anyway?

    We are glad that you like our game!
    BTW, Paladin is my favorite too! We designed the 4 heroes in totally different play style, and if you try more items, you will find there are many interesting combination with hero skills and items.

    We are planning in release our game in about Feb or Mar in 2017.
