Sword of Fargoal

This is the iPhone version of the 1982 classic dungeon crawler. It’s described as being more accessible than a lot of other dungeon crawlers such as Nethack. It features over 20 dungeon levels with 100 unique dungeon maps per game. There are also over 28 monster types with special abilities, weapons & spells. Monsters will also hunt you while you idle. The game’s original music score has also come in for a lot of praise.
