      • Hey Serge Ulankin!

        Thank you for your recommendation. I think that the free space-themed RPG games on Android & iOS that exists right now, are few, and none of them would make it on the top list, not yet at least. There are plenty of good paid space RPG and Strategy games that I love playing and I would easily recommend them, like XCOM: Enemy Within.

        I see your point on Dungeon Survival, but still, it is a good choice for those that would love to experience the game style of Darkest Dungeon since it is available only on PC. Ads will not be a problem, I never had issues with that, and you will easily follow up with your characters without making a single purchase on the game.

        • Yeah, I didn’t mean any disprespect to the game though, sorry if it sounded like that. I loved Darkest Dungeon, so I might give this one a go too if what you say is true.
