APP STORE SUMMARY
Welcome to Sword of Fargoal® Legends,
**WINNER "BEST RETRO GAME" 2010 BEST APP EVER AWARDS (iPad version)**
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.

★ PACKED WITH NOSTALGIA, PERFECT FOR DUNGEON CRAWLER NEWCOMERS

Selected as one of the "Best iPhone Games" by TouchArcade's 2009 Buyer's Guide (5-stars)

"This game is really worth its price and even more. There are games you pay 5 to 10 bucks for and they aren't nearly as addicting as Sword of Fargoal is. I hadn't more fun with the last RPGs I played."

"This is one game that is not to be missed, and I could kick myself for waiting so long to get this. So do yourself a favor and instead of kicking yourself later, just go and get this."

— Fans from TouchArcade forum

“Sword of Fargoal is one of the best loved roguelike games ever to light up a CRT … Those who've never played a dungeon crawler before might just find themselves drawn in to Sword of Fargoal"

— TouchArcade

“It's playable and addictive … certainly one of the best mini-adventures you can get.”

— iPhone-Gamer.net
