There are no shortage of role playing games which incorporate puzzles into their game play, but puzzle games which incorporate role playing games are a rare breed. ‘10000000’ is one such puzzle game released last month for the iOS platform.
“10000000 is a Dungeon Crawling RPG Matching Game. Run the dungeon and match to handle the things you encounter. Upgrade your castle, improve your gear, train skills and brew potions”
‘10000000’ is basically a puzzle game which uses drag and match kind of puzzle solving game to proceed in a role playing game. The puzzle is the game controller here, replacing action keys. You are a pixelated character, the protagonist who goes on an adventure, defeating villains on the way and defeating a wide variety of enemies. At the same time, you also get to collect goodies and open treasure boxes. Your character does all the running himself but if needs to defend himself in a fight or open treasure chests, you will have to match three or more corresponding tiles. For example, matching ‘sword’ tiles will make your character attack and matching ‘key’ tiles will open treasure chests.
Of course, the game does award you with achievements from time to time depending on how long you manage to survive or fulfill conditions. There are also things which can be upgraded, like your castle and skills that can be improved and items that can be bought to help you defeat enemies in Boss Levels. The other nice thing about the game is the good old arcade style music and the 2D graphics is reminiscent of the “Dave” days.
The game will need some getting used to but will certainly not disappoint you. ‘10000000’ is available in the Apple App Store for $1.99 and runs on iOS 3.1 and up. Can you score 10000000 and earn your freedom?”
