This is the version of Hydra Slayer for Android devices. Hydra Slayer is a roguelike (that is, a game where you control a single hero fighting hordes of monsters in a randomly generated dungeon, with a high emphasis on tactics) where combat has been inspired by old mathematical puzzles about brave heroes slaying many headed beasts. See the homepage for the story, information, and a beginner's guide.

This version includes social features from third party networks, such as Swarm's social high scores and achievements, and HeyZap's checkin feature.

Hydra Slayer currently features:

* a unique (AFAICT) gameplay mechanics (although the main idea is based on old mathematical puzzles). To defeat a Hydra, you have to choose your attacks carefully, just bashing it with your "best" weapon is not likely to be a successful strategy. To win the big game, you have to choose your set of weapons wisely, and use your resources efficiently!

* a theme which mixes high fantasy and mathematics

* traditional roguelike ASCII graphics, or tiles

* 5 player character races with very distinct tactics

* 28 enemy types

* 24 types of equipment

* 15 weapon materials

* 18 types of non-equipment items

* 3 game geometries to choose before the start of game

* 8 level topologies (including the Mobius strip and Klein bottle)

* 11 level generators

* 2 endings
