Lootbox RPG was made by the same dev who made Silversword. It’s a 100% IAP-free dungeon crawler with no perma-death and dozens of different items. You kill enemies and open chests for loot, getting harder as you descend, with stairs back to the surface every fifth level.
It’s also still in active development, and you can read about new features in the developer’s comment below.
There’s the main Torture Chamber, plus the Rat King’s area, an Elven Forest and some Goblin Tunnels. Eventually you get into the main castle, and the dev has been adding more content.
Lootbox also has two amazingly useful features which should be standard on all games (see the animated image at the bottom of the page or click here if it doesn’t display):
- “Show Time” – optionally display a small (real world) clock in-game
- “Top Padding” – optionally shift the top of the GUI down below the iPhone X notch
Lootbox is completely offline and it frequently autosaves, plus you can save whenever and wherever you like, making it a lot less punishing than the average roguelike – it’s set in Hell, so you can’t “die”! It’s a little bit grindy as you try to level up, but it’s fun grinding. Once you’ve killed the first boss there’s also a magic system with runes that you have to find.
Lootbox is a nice little dungeon crawler that will take you directly to hell. Being one of His Great Unholinesses sons, you are about to set on a quest that will lead you to various places until you finally have the chance to help your father defend the realm against its enemies. If you want it or not. So, do as you are commanded, naughty brat.
