The roguelike genre is based around some pretty hardcore gaming ideals, including losing everything upon death, and exploring totally random arenas.
Bearing this in mind, it's remarkable how accessible Dungelot is. It's definitely a roguelike, and boasts all the usual traits, but it's streamlined enough to make it ideal entertainment for those moments in-between meetings.
The action takes place on a 6x5 grid dungeon packed with traps, monsters, and items to collect. When your hero enters this area everything is obscured from view. By tapping each tile, you can reveal what lies beneath.
Dungelot is best described as a causal roguelike, and offers the perfect introduction to the genre for newbies. Just don't expect it to keep you busy for long
