Default Dungeon RPGs to play while we're waiting for Baldur's Gate

I read that Baldur's Gate is coming out soon on Android in another thread

Does anyone know of any good dungeon RPGs on Android out right now?

I've found these ones so far:

Dungeon Ascendance - Kind of like a puzzle RPG cross. Super fun.

Traque - Also free. Cute graphics but kind of hard.

Mini Quests - Amazing pixel graphics! Bit short though.

Any more?

Emissary of war - very short, but great game.

Andor's trail - work in progress, but good fun old skool dungeon crawler.

Default More games

Emissary of War looks great!

Over the weekend I found some more dungeon RPGs that youmay not know about:

Cardinal Quest - Old skool style rogue-like. It's quiet fun but some of the classes are a bit easy with the right skills.

Oubliette - Weird name but the closest to the old EYE OF THE BEHOLDER games!

I guess the BIG games will come to iOS first because iPhone owners are more fly rich hehe.

But but I've got a new one for you ... Avadon. Big game but you need a big wallet too. There is a free demo tho

I like Avernum: Escape from the Pit better, but it's only available on iOS.

Avadon and Avernum have the same developer, Spiderweb Software. But Spiderweb Software contracted out the development of Avadon to another developer, as they themselves are not interested in making anything for Android. Not sure if any of their other games will ever be ported to Android. That means the inevitable sequel to Avadon likely will not be available for Android.

It does feel like a desktop port. It's hard to tap accurately in combat which is irritating.

I will second the suggestion of Andor's Trail, and also add:

Legends Arcana (there's also a free, ad-supported version, but its easily worth the $2.95)
Gurk and its sequel Gurk II, are 8-bit style RPGs and also fun (II is $0.99 but well worth it).

Default Gurk

I liked the Gurk games but found the separate screen for combat slowed down the gameplay.

I have been playing Legend of Yore which seems to be super-popular but it's a bit simple simple

Do not forget Cthulhu Saves The World.

The premise of the game is that Cthulhu has lost his godly powers and to regain them he must be heroic, so he sets out to save the world so he can destroy it.

I haven't played very far (I have it for the PC), but it is filled with great humour. It has no hard time poking fun at itself and the genre in general.

The PC version works fine, but the Android version is garbage - due to the fragmentation of Android OS and devices, the game does not work properly or just does not work on many Android devices. Just check out the game's user ratings and reviews. I say avoid the Android version and just play it on the PC.

Today's game is wazhack. Its a weird mix of rogue like and realtime movement. The control system feels a bit fiddly but the game is good. Not quite figured out how to run away which is pretty useful in most rogulike.

Anyway, here's a new link for ya all dungeon RPG fans:

Trap Hunter - it's 3d. Japanese. The paid version is expensive. But it's got an interesting mechanic and looks pretty.

I have Trap Hunter for a year now. It is a tactical game. It is NOT an RPG. It does not even have a storyline or central plot. There is zero character/NPC interaction.

Oubliette is a dungeon with only one opening, at the top. From old french oublier "to forget." Its a place where you put people when you want to forget about them.
