Shattered Pixel Dungeon is one of the best versions of Pixel Dungeon that you can find on Android. And what is Pixel Dungeon? An open-source roguelike that's perfectly adapted to touchscreens, and that's much simpler and more accessible than other classic games in this genre.

In the beginning of each game, you can choose to play with a warrior, a mage, a thief, or a hunter. Each of these character classes has its own advantages and disadvantages, which you need to know in order to take full advantage of them.

The gameplay in Shattered Pixel Dungeon is just like that of any other traditional roguelike: you advance through a dungeon where you have to fight enemies in turn-based combats, find equipment for your character, and gain experience and level up. You basically just have to survive for as long as you can.

The one thing that Shattered Pixel Dungeon incorporates in contrast to other roguelike games is its simple and intuitive control system, which make handling your character really easy. You no longer need to deal with a virtual keyboard to do basic things like eat and find traps.

Shattered Pixel Dungeon is an excellent roguelike that incorporates the best elements of genre classics and fuses them with more modern controls and delightful pixelated graphics.
Pixel Dungeon, the most played roguelike on Android

If you're looking for a textbook example of the roguelike genre, look no further than Pixel Dungeon. You could pretty much consider it one of the heavyweights of the new silver age, way above and beyond the rough ASCII environments used in Rogue, Hack or Moria. Although it was initially released for Android in 2012, the fact that it was distributed under a GNU license and shared its source code publicly, has led to countless clones and remakes. These new versions have continued to add endless content to the already enormous number of possibilities of the original game.

This RPG subgenre typically means graphics from another era, randomly-generated maps, a high level of difficulty, and constant defeat, with permanent death being one of these games' trademarks. However, the concept behind this legendary genre has evolved with time and there are now plenty of games that are considered roguelikes even though they don't necessarily have all the typical elements. Many purists would beg to differ, but this evolution has brought with it more different and original options. With this idea in mind, we've selected the 10 best roguelikes on Android that have appeared in 2017.
