  • Summary: Welcome to Sword of Fargoal® Legends, the classic dungeon crawler adventure, now reimagined in a brand new HD adaptation for the iPad!

    Explore the perilous dungeon in your attempt to rescue the Sword of Fargoal. It is said to be hidden deep on the 20th level and guarded by a host of
    monsters and other powerful foe, but you must avoid devilish traps, wrong turns, and other obstacles along your way. Once you find the Sword you must make it out alive before the walls begin to collapse around you! You embark on a new quest each time you begin a new character! The entire dungeon is generated randomly each time, giving a satisfying, infinitely-replayable experience to both retro gamers and newcomers alike. Originally developed over 25 years ago for the C64 (and other classic Commodore computers) it is a perfect old school adventure with amazing new graphics, original music, and retro-inspired sounds. ??????????????????

    went down the list of "top 10 best roguelikes on iOS" and played them all i liked this one and hoplite the best. this is the
    essence of roguelike...ur a guy on a quest to kill a badguy on the on the 20th level of a dungeon. as you level up the levels get tougher. you do some lockpicking, sneaking, and spell casting but essentially you're a guy that swings a sword. feels like a primitive, but fun diablo.

    Update October 16, 2014
    This game is much better than I initially thought. I see why its one of the best 150 games of all time. I thought it paled in comparison to hoplite initially but this game is actually much more complex. Beating this game is quite the feat and quite an adventure. Maybe the best game I've played on iOS
