To those complaining about the lack of plot and the difficulty: you're kind of missing the point. This is an update to one of the very first electronic RPGs. Oubliette was first published in 1977, and at that time had only text and a few wireframe boxes to represent the dungeon. For its time, it was quite unique, and introduced a number of concepts that have become bedrock elements for CRPGs generally (Wizardry and its progeny drew heavily on Oubliette). So if you're comparing it to modern CRPGs, no, it doesn't have the same production values. For a $2.50 trip down memory lane, however, this app is a blast for people like me who are old enough to remember games of its type.
