Update: Cracked Crusaders is available now on the App Store and Google Play. It's free-to-try with one IAP for $1.99 that removes ads. 

Cracked Crusaders is a side-scrolling dungeon-crawler with a bit of platforming thrown in for good measure. You may remember it by its previous name Super Dungeon Delvers, which was ditched because it was too much of a mouthful. The alliteration, importantly, remains though and the game will be available for iOS and Android on 5th November.

In Cracked Crusaders you'll start off as Milton, a shepherd who is forced to fight back when evil beasties invade his homeland of Lachy Valley and abduct his flock. Alongside his sheep-dog Holly and duck pal Dory – who are both playable – they head off to Limsburg where they'll dive into various dungeons to defeat these evil critters once and for all.

There'll be over 100 levels to tackles in the dungeons of Limsburg full of hazardous traps like spikes and swinging axes. There'll be sentient dangers to contend with as well with knights, giant bats and yetis included amongst the enemies you'll face. At the heart of each of dungeon, you'll find bosses that will test your skills the most, with some filling the entire screen.
