Bonfire Of The Sanities: Wayward Souls

Miniature Souls

Champion of indie games and decent chap Mike Rose told me of Wayward Souls' existence at the beginning of the week. I'd mentioned something Dark Souls related on Twitter and he suggested I take a look at Wayward Souls, describing it as a mobile variant. What he didn't tell me is that the game, from the developers of Punch Quest and the spiffy Mage Gauntlet, is only available on iOS. It is coming to Android later in the year and I imagine it will accompany me on several flights and train journey, but it's also heading for PC. That surprised me but not like the Jack In The Box that cemented my fear of clowns as an infant - like an unexpected breakfast in bed. There's a trailer below.

We're promised six characters with different playing styles, randomised locations and speedy combat. It looks quite similar to Mage Gauntlet, a top-down action game that I thoroughly enjoyed, but I haven't had a chance to try the iOS version yet because I am an Adam without an Apple.
