At first glance, 10000000 doesn't look like anything to get excited about. If anything, its title should immediately give you a headache - how many zeroes is that again? (It's 7, by the way.) Spoken 'ten million,' this puzzle-based RPG was released to a very warm critical reception on iOS last year (and later Windows / OS X), and has been a hit ever since.

unnamed (1) unnamed (2) unnamed

So, what's with that title? Actually, ten million is the score you'll have to achieve on a single 'run' to escape the castle our unnamed hero. You don't have any direct control over the character, you simply match up 3 tiles of a single type in the puzzle below the dungeon to deal with situations your hero encounters as they arise. This may mean a sword to fight off an enemy, a key to unlock a chest, or a spell.

Your character's 'equipment' essentially makes the tile-matching game easier / different and modifies the mechanics of specific abilities; making attacks more powerful, improving the chance certain tiles will appear on the board, etc.

At $2, this is an eminently reasonable entry fee for a title that has enjoyed such critical praise - it's one of those games that you really do need to play, if only to experience it.

    I watched lethalfrag play the steam version on twitch and it reminded me a lot of puzzle quest. I didnt wanna play it on my PC but figured if it dropped for android I'd get it, couldn't be more excited.

      Played it on PC. It's well worth the price, it gets absurdly intense towards the end! Strongly recommend. :)

      Gurk 1 and 2 are boss and Knights of Pen and Paper is pretty cool as well. :D

        Knights of Pen and Paper is fun but gets old fast once you start having to grind in order to keep up the difficulty of the quests. But the dev has released several updates since I've last touched it, and the dev has pushed an update that increase exp and gold gain.

      Dragon fantasy, the 8-bit rpg. And tell your friends, it needs way more love than it has received.
