King Crusher Is Here! 

Android and iOS users will delight in Ankama Mobile's newest release: King Crusher. You'll need to be strategic and move smartly around the field to master this roguelike where slapstick lives alongside medieval-fantasy! On January 9, King Crusher's troops start conquering the world on his orders!

Roubaix, January 9, 2019 : Of all the kings in this universe full of nods at fantasy and geek culture, you've run into the craziest, the one who wants to eliminate all the others so he can be the one and only ruler in the world! And here you are, leading a group of fighters from twelve classes with specific powers; your mission is to defeat the ever more powerful monsters sent by other kingdoms. 

Take advantage of everyone's strengths, move strategically on the field, collect all the items you find on your journey, put the bonuses you pick up in combat to good use, and level up.  

King Crusher is a sliding puzzle action/adventure game that uses classic roguelike and RPG mechanics in an original way to offer you dynamic and strategic gameplay. The games, which can be broken down in several 5-to-10-minute sessions, are as many adventures that trigger random events making each session unique. 

Another royal plus for this new creation by Ankama is its daily challenge mode. Daily challenges are one of the three available game modes; they offer all players a shared adventure every day. Who will have the best score? 

Competitive or not, let yourself be swept up into a saga full of wacky, off-beat humor carried by pixel art and a finely tuned original sound track.
