Zoo Corporation of Japan has just launched RogueRun – Abyss Tower for the Android and iOS platforms. The name alone should make it obvious what kind of game this is, so if you are into both roguelikes and endless runners, you will be right at home with it.
An overview for the game as follows from its store page:
This is an action rougelike game, where you explore automatically generated pixel dungeons and worlds. Enhance your equipment with the items you bring back after completing a dungeon.
◆Many actions available
Take a variety of actions such as jumping, wall-scaling, rolling, etc. by tapping on the left or right side of the screen. The character will run automatically in the tapped direction.
◆Exploration mode: no change in the dungeon for a day
In normal exploration mode, the dungeon does not change throughout the day. The same stage can be played again even if you fail, allowing you to remembering the map layout. During the same day, all players will conquer the same stages, so you may be able to share information among other dungeon explorers.
◆Deep exploration mode: changes its dungeon with each play
You can enjoy more rogue-like play in deep exploration mode, where the layout of the dungeon changes with each play.
◆A variety of weapons such as swords, spears, staves, etc.
Players can use the materials they bring back from exploring the dungeons to strengthen the various weapons they equip.
You can also combine weapons of the same type to further enhance them.

When you wear various types of equipment, the avatar of the player character changes! You can also change the color and enjoy customizing it for each player.
