A few weeks ago, we here iOS gamers received one of the best gifts 2022 has to offer. Inevitably, people will fall into one of two camps: those who appreciate this most bountiful gift of free roguelike slaughter, and the rest, who haven’t yet been sucked in by hours of undead action. that hurt your thumb and warm the toilet seat.

That giveaway is Vampire Survivors, a “time survival” rogue-lite game from Poncle (aka developer Luca Galante), and it’s completely free on the App store (opens in a new tab). Not without extra charge for a apple arcade subscription i mean free free. It’s a great deal for a decent game, but it’s not just any old twiddler: not only is it one of best iphone games to play right now, it’s one of the best games this year on any platform.
