    A perfect game to be filed under the category of "plays much better than it looks", I am a little embarrassed to say that I almost skipped over this one while browsing through the App Store, but I'm incredibly glad that I didn't-it quickly became one of my favorite iOS games, period.

    Rune Raiders is a really addictive title. While the backgrounds suffer a bit from repetition, the challenging gameplay more than makes up for this as it's a title that's hard to put down. There's even a randomized survival mode to unlock, which adds longevity.

    Rune Raiders is simple, but it isn't mindless. It packs several layers of strategy into a casual frame. More than that, it's rather charming, with characters and quips to make you smile.

    An interesting and simple to play strategy game based around dungeon crawling with a band of adventurers and securing all that immaculate treasure.

    Rune Raiders aims more for the casual gamer; for hardcore strategy fans, consider 100 Rogues as a pretty good alternative strategy iPhone game. For everyone else, Rune Raider is a decent, if not short, entrance to the world of strategy role-playing games.

    Cartoony, simple, and entertaining, Rune Raiders offers a great introduction into turn-based strategy games. It just doesn't have enough to keep the veteran strategist engaged.

    Sure, it's turn based strategy at its core, but the movement and treadmill vibe from the levels make it feel a bit different.
