/bʌɡ/ – 1.6 is coming

To improve support version 1.6 will contain the possibility of importing and exporting save games. Whenever you have a problem with the game and are asked to send me your saved games, you can do so by following the instructions found here: https://lootbox-rpg.com/export-import-save-game/

Forum online

I am not sure if this works out, but you will find a support forum on this page from now on. So please share your thoughts (and bugs) with the community (and me of course).

You can still contact me via the support e-mail address of course.

Redistribution of Skillpoints

Here is how you can reskill your character: Take the south exit of the Throne Room to the royal gardens. The Master of Spirits can be found in the east part of the courtyard. Approach him and touch him to interact.

He will reset your skillpoints and they are free to distribute again. Have fun playing with this possibility because it can be done again and again without paying anything.

Magic? Here’s how it works

When you approach level 20, you will probably get the first magic runes. Some creatures in the fairy forest have some, some creatures in the other dungeons as well. They are rare, so keep searching.

In the Grave Lord’s chamber there is a runeboard to be found. Get the runeboard. Then look for a Power I rune and a Fire Rune. As soon as you have found these runes, use your runeboard and assign the runes to the free slots. Afterwards, tap on the Power rune and on the Fire rune and then cast the spell. If that is not working, make sure that you have the skill Petty Magic already – and assigned at least 1 skill point to it.

Petty Magic is necessary for Power I spells, Higher Magic is needed for Power II spells.

A good way to learn more about spells and their runes is to find the fairy maiden in the fairy forest. She has a book that is quite useful.


I am releasing 1.4 right now. On the Google PlayStore it will be available within the next hours. Apple… well, who knows 😉

  • creatures don’t automatically land critical hits when player defense is still at 0

v1.2 and the stores

Please don’t worry if your preferred store can’t provide you with the most current version. I’m doing my best to keep all in sync. At the moment, Lootbox RPG is available on Apple’s AppStore, googles PlayStore and on Amazon.

With v1.2 some minor fixes came. The most important one is the fix for the 50 turns healing potion. It should work now and give you 5 health points every turn.

In addition, I’ve uploaded a gameplay video to the Apple AppStore.

If you have a mobile gaming site and need some news, I will gladly provide you with more information on Lootbox – and a promotional code as well 😉

Stop being confused! v1.1 released

The first update with some convenience just hit the store.

– Rune Slots are now shown correctly
– Changed language flags
– Corrected some translations
– Extended Stat and Skill description
– Show enemies even if no light source is active

Lootbox RPG available on the AppStore!

Lootbox is a nice little dungeon crawler that will take you directly to hell. Being one of His Great Unholinesses sons, you are about to set on a quest that will lead you to various places until you finally have the chance to help your father defend the realm against its enemies. If you want it or not. So, do as you are commanded, naughty brat.

The satisfying dungeon crawler is here!

“Oh no, an incoming call!”

no real time decisions, you can safely interrupt the game at any point.

“So late already?”

no need to exit the game, a real world clock can be switched on optionally.

“What? I AM DEAD?”

No permadeath, this is no rogue-clone. You can load/save at any time, or return to safety without losing all your money or equipped items.

“Damn! I died and I forgot to save!”

The game is autosaved every level, don’t panic.

“If I only could teach those damn rats what I’ve learned…”

You can come back to your old friends and show them your uber gear.

“Nice game, but my smartphone is over 5 years old…”

The game runs well on older devices, happy playing!

“Where can I buy money?”

Nowhere. This game is OFFLINE and there is NO Pay-To-Win mechanism. Sorry.

“Where is the chatroom?”

There are enough messengers already in the world, right?

“Where do I have to register?”

Register what? This game is OFFLINE. I don’t need your data, thanks anyway.

“Where is the premium version?”

There isn’t. Buy once, play endless.
