Debuting in 2018 to great success due to the combined efforts of developer Digital Sun Games, and publisher 11 bit studios, Moonlighter has seen huge success on all platforms it has been released on so far. Now, the indie hit brings its adventuring, dungeon crawling, and shopkeeping to your pockets thanks to an all-new iOS adaptation.
Moonlighter, an action RPG enriched with rogue-lite elements, tells the story of brave and adventurous Will: a novice treasure seeker at night and humble shopkeeper during the day. The mobile version of Moonlighter is not a mere port; prepare to say hello to a brand-new control scheme, redesigned interface, and a rebalanced and reworked experience overall.
Controls keep up with the fast-paced monster-slaying gameplay thanks to dropping virtual twin sticks that tend to be problematic on smaller screen devices. Instead, the game features tap and swipe mechanics for moving and dashing, which can be done by both thumbs, that allows players to instantly react to upcoming danger. The user interface has been reorganized and rescaled to perform with the same efficiency on various resolutions, and enemy behaviors and statistics – including boss encounters – were tweaked to suit the new gameplay style.
Despite the platform change, Moonlighter remains a captivating, charming experience that has already conquered the hearts of PC and console players around the globe with its gorgeous pixel art graphics and a highly replayable experience. All the free content updates that were released on other platforms so far are available in the mobile version from day one so players can enjoy the game in its richest form.
Moonlighter on iOS will be available on November 19th and priced at $11.99/€12,99
