Oubliette for the iPhone, iPod Touch and Android phones
Oubliette is the classic multiplayer dungeon fantasy role playing game. Build a party of fighters, priests, mages and thieves
to run deep into the dungeon. Test your courage and skill against groups of orcs,
trolls, vampires and dragons.
Earning its reputation as the thinking man's dungeon game, Oubliette blends the
thrill of mortal combat with the sublime challenges of strategy, planning and adaptation.
Rather than testing your reaction speed and nerves, like a first person shooter,
Oubliette challenges the player to do careful strategic planning as well as make
tactical decisions in the heat of battle.
Each player (character) in the game is created from one of eight player races, which
vary in attributes such as strength, intelligence, dexterity and durability. Elves
are highly intelligent and (potentially) immortal, Orcs are strong with short life
spans, Dwarves are strong with high wisdom, Kobolds are quite weak in most areas
but advance more quickly.
Depending on these attributes, each player will be qualified to join a limited number
of player classes (occupations). More balanced players will have more choices, including
Hirebrand (fighter), Mage, Priest and Thief. Less commonly, players may be qualified
for a highly selective class with special skills such as Ranger, Sage, Paladin,
Samurai or Ninja.
Unlike games which focus on a single player against multiple opponents, Oubliette
allows a party of up to 10 players with complementary skills to face the various
types of monsters found in the dungeon. There are more than 160 different monsters,
and to deal with them, more than 150 different pieces of equipment, which may be
enchanted with special properties or skills.
Oubliette is challenging, but forgiving. New players commonly have their parties
wiped out by an unfamiliar group of monsters. In fact, your party can meet up to
3 monster groups at the same time! Use the Temporal Chamber to save a Temporal Portal
before dangerous trips. If things turn out badly, use the Temporal Chamber to turn
back the clock and try again. The trapeze is every bit as thrilling, but safer,
with a net below.
If you are up to the challenge, Oubliette is free to download and play. Explore
the easier levels of the dungeon to build your party and expertise. And then, when
you are ready, feel the power of the game on the deeper levels. Onward to Glory!
