"Mystery Dungeon" style roguelike RPG! Quirky and fun but very challenging. Yes, it's hard. But you're not afraid of a hard video game, right?

Use magic items, morph into monsters, find friends to fight alongside you! Use keen strategy rather than grinding for levels and you'll clear the dungeon!

NEW: on small screen devices you can now select controls with the DPAD at bottom left.

What’s a roguelike RPG and how does it play? It’s a classic video game style and here are a couple of strategies...

Strategy A) - attack everything in sight head-on. Result: your character will die quickly and often.

Strategy B) - learn about the powers of the items you find. For example, find a cursed “Empty Vial”, throw it at a "Ghost" to capture its soul. Then later drink the vial, become a Ghost and float through walls to escape danger. Or grab a “Levelup Bead”, wave it at a friendly character - he’ll level up and help you fight, or drop it on the ground, let a "Catapult" monster pick it up & toss it at you - you’ll level up and be able to pound monsters into the ground. But ouch! The "Nosferatu" monsters are too powerful!?! (Nosferatu is a type of vampire, Google it), yet they’re undead and undead monsters are vulnerable to medicinal herbs, like that "Wormwood" you just picked up!

In short, roguelike games offer a rich experience for gamers seeking something beyond casual games.

Notes: save your game at any point, but Voyage to Farland uses hardcore Rogue rules (death=start over no items). Think of it as "tough love".

5 themed dungeons, 39 monster types with devious attacks, over 30 items and 4 NPCs you can recruit to help you fight!

Hints: try the training dungeon first, equip a shield as soon as possible, make good use of the herbs/beads/scroll's secret powers (tap INV, then select Explain from the item's sub menu - use the DPAD or swipe up/down in the center of the touchscreen to scroll in menus). Find an empty vial, use it to capture & morph into a monster to really throw down and you'll be hooked.

Notes:
Despite the cute graphics, Voyage to Farland is one of the harder roguelike games in the Android market/Google Play. It's not a grindfest. Levels don't matter. Cleared dungeons are what matter in this game. You'll be tested from the very first floor. Many players dive in, attack everything, die quickly and get frustrated. This game demands a more clever approach. Until you find a shield you'll have to pick your battles wisely. Voyage has been on the market for over two years and yet only two players have cleared every dungeon (shout-out to Paul and Rodney!). You might be the third if you have patience, perseverance and a will to win! Some gamers want to kill time with Angry Birds or Battleheart. That's fine, but you're not like that. You want a challenge. You want to face the Spirit Witch and defeat her. You want to be the first adventurer to enter "The Path of No Return" and beat the dungeon once and for all. To unlock the secrets of Farland.

    Easily one of the best roguelike's on the Android market! Edit: Recent update added a way more comfortable control scheme, with the D-pad in the lower left corner, and the dash in the lower right corner. Plus the new content.

    Did you hire any? Because the first thing I would have given as feedback is the fact that the dpad is on the top left. It's as if this was developed by someone who only plays PC games and is so enamored with keyboard/mouse that they wouldn't know a comfor

    This is a really cool game, similar to one of my favorite games ever, Shiren the Wanderer. But as other people have already said, the button layout and graphics need changing. Big time. The control pad should be on the bottom left, not the top left. The b

    Great little rogue-like and a perfect introduction to the genre for those who have not played this style of game before. Developer is extremely responsive and quickly fixed the multi-touch issue I had on ICS.

    This game is excellent for its style. Other reviewers need to realize this is an old school roguelike style game, not Diablo 3. It's supposed to look old. The controls work fine on my phone and the game is fun.

    Great game in serious need of a professional artist. Some sprites have solid colors, others are a mess of ugly gradients and blurs (the Tinbots, for example.) Also some areas have a grid (which I actually prefer for this sort of game) and other areas do
