The Dead Hop

The Dead Hop is a cute, retro-style dungeon-crawler style RPG, with strong strategic combat elements. Looters will love it, as there's loads of different gear to find and equip. There's also plenty of character customisation, from the initial stat roll. Movement is quite interesting, you can select a location and hit the Move button, or push and drag your sprite about. The one thing that possibly needs an option to turn off is the blinking/flashing of your sprite and its destination, which is distracting.

The Dead Hop has quest and random missions, for dynamically-created game maps. It uses a time-based combat system. There's also a Faction store to buy powerful equipment with reputation. The developer is actively adding more content to the game, and there's a free version so you can try it out first.
