    100 Rogues is an arcade-style dungeon crawling adventure for iPhone, iPod Touch and the iPad. Maps, monsters and loot all generate randomly, making each playthrough a new experience. You won’t find another game that looks, plays, or sounds like 100 Rogues, as it's got fully animated 2D pixel art, and classic videogame-style music.

    100 Rogues is about player improvement more than character improvement, as your unfortunate Rogue’s death is almost guaranteed for most players. Like a game of Tetris or Galaga, 100 Rogues isn’t about completion; it’s about seeing how you can do in one play session.

    Explore randomly-generated dungeons; find rare magical weapons, armor and other artifacts; meet strange, interesting monsters and do battle in a thought-provoking, turn-based-strategy combat system. Our characters have their own unique skill trees, and as you gain experience you can unlock new skills to survive against tougher opponents.

    Regardless of whether or not you like roguelikes, or even RPGs in general, this is a game that you're going to want to try out.

    100 Rogues is impossible. A turn-based dungeon-crawler in the vein of Diablo or Gauntlet, but with a greater sense of humor about itself, 100 Rogues dubiously asks players to bring back Satan's head for an obviously bored, mysterious cabal that's trying to get rid of you.

    One of the best iOS games, highly (re)playable and appealingly roguelike. [Sept 2011]

    Definitely a game worth considering if you want to get into some doomed dungeon crawling with a strategic twist.

    100 Rogues is a true rogue-like game that has been given a near perfect overhaul for modern gamers with hardcore tastes; and don't let this scare you off because it's a game just about anyone can jump in to and enjoy.

    An homage and a reinvention of the dungeon crawling RPG, 100 Rogues sparkles with wit and fine gameplay mechanic. It's just a shame technical issues have spoiled its sheen.

    100 Rogues is more betalike than roguelike.

    I am writing to update my review of 100 Rogues to include the new Mac App Store version.
    First, let me say that I continue to be a passionate addict of this developer's original Universal iOS game.
    It has grown by leaps and bounds since it was first released and I continue to find it exciting and challenging to play. It is one of few games that I play almost daily.

    Now, I will give a review of the Mac App Store version of the game. Overall, I will continue to give it a score of 10, since it is very true to the original game. However, I do see some opportunities for Fusion Reactions to improve the Mac version of the game to be a bit more keyboard and mouse friendly. I am sure that they will add sophistication to these functions soon, but it is still a valuable game to play now, especially since they give you all their player classes included in the Mac OSX price. Nice!
