I purchased 100 Rogues from the app store. Unfortunately, I overlooked the fact that it was pay-as-you-play. 

 

Pay-as-you-play is an insidious way to sell your game. Devs, you may be doing some really awesome things here, but it's hard to heap respect and adulation on games that are marketed in such an underhanded way (Isn't it, after all, the reason Diablo 3 was such a critical failure?). 

 

I, for one, will revisit the game when it stops asking for more money. Until then, I'll have to explore some of the other roguelike options for iOs.

One thing that ticks me off is that you have to buy the character before you use it, how about the developers let us test the character out for a single run or in an arena, sandbox style. It would please a lot of people!

Hi there.  Lead designer here.  Just wanted to point out that this game is absolutely not pay-as-you-play, whatsoever.  You pay for the game once, and then you can play with those two characters indefinitely.  You do not need other characters to get the full 100 Rogues experience.

 

However, should you want to expand the game, we provide that opportunity through other classes.  I assure you, though, that those other classes are entirely optional.
