About

Wayward Souls is a randomly generated action-RPG with a heavy focus on story. Play as seven different heroes, all with their own abilities and playstyles. Fight through steadily greater hordes of enemies, as you learn about each character and find out what happened in the cursed tower you find yourself in.

Greatly inspired by 90's era action-RPG's, but with a faster pace and a focus on randomized replay value.

  • Customize each character with their own upgrades and equipment sets that change their movesets and abilities.
  • Over 100 different monster types. Over 300 hats (IMPORTANT)
  • Unique story events for every playable character.
  • Many different areas, room types, rare rooms, encounters, and secrets.
  • Unlockable game modes, including Endless Mode.
  • Heavy replay value due to randomly generated levels, multiple character types, and randomized enemy groups.
Hero Characters and Abilities


Renee uses her mobility to dash through enemies. Her Power Attack is a kick that stuns, with effects depending on her boots. She frequently finds items that let her blind, stun, or poison enemies. All of these let her perform very damaging backstabs.

Equipment and Upgrade Examples:
  • Mirage Dagger randomly gives her short bursts of stealth during her dashes.
  • Giantstomper Boots upgrade her kicks to send enemies flying far back. Flung enemies will then damage and stun enemies they crash into. The Giantstompers also interrupt larger enemies that are stun resistant.
  • Toadskin Cowters poison enemies that hit her, stunning them after a few seconds.
  • Her Low Blow Upgrade permanently makes it so defeating large enemies will make her next dagger attack stun whatever she hits, even if her slash hits multiple enemies.



Blythe combines durability with a big sword that cleaves a wide area. He has a shield to block enemy attacks, and throwing axes for when he needs a faster or more long ranged option than his sword provides.

  • Duskhander Sword replaces his default Power Attack's charging slash with a whirlwind spin, hitting enemies over a larger area.
  • Magebane Gauntlets reduces the damage of enemy spells, while making his throwing axes destroy any enemy spell they pass through.
  • Stonebeard Slab is much more durable than the default shield, but makes him move very slowly when holding the shield out to block.
  • Drakefire Oil is an item the Warrior can use to make all his sword swings emit a traveling wave of flame, for a limited time.



Abbie has long ranged magic attacks that do heavy damage. Her Power Attack uses her staff for shots that are longer range and pierce multiple enemies. In a tough situation, she has limited use spells for both offense and defense.

  • Salamander's Breath Staff turns her magical shots into bursts of flame that pierce even more enemies, but have very short range.
  • Tremor Garb gives her a powerful footstomp that creates a shockwave to stun enemies and destroy enemy projectiles.
  • Manablade Arts lets her summon a sword that does high damage, interrupts enemy attacks, can reflect enemy spells, and has a small chance to stun.
  • The Mage can find powerful one use scrolls such as Fireball or Lightning Bolt, which inflict massive damage and stun to multiple enemies.

Wayward Souls reviews and comments

Early Access Review Secret of Mana or any SNES game from Square or Enix (when they were separate) but without the "free" world. Roguelite with dungeons with random rooms with different levels, a story that develops as we play and each different one for each character (6 Plus one in development). It'S kind of hard but not frustrating and at least for my nice to play. It Has the typical, improvements in weapons and armor that are obtained in a forge, temporary bufo, pets that improve the character in that run (more life, more critical), permanent improvements spending gold, each peronaje has unique skills and way of playing... and bosses clear. Varied and very well designed Enemies (wonderful pixel art) and are the developers of Death Road to Canada, very nice people and very active with the community. In Short If you like the roguelites with aesthetics of the SNES Noventa, that each run is not a ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Hell and that is very beautiful for the view I recommend and also hope great things of these people.

Cruelly neat and well done purely aesthetically. The Music is okay. That game falls on is content and game joy. For 75 bucks so I reckon personal with something a bit extravagant than what this offered me. As Fölket says, you can upgrade your characters between sessions.... But the upgrades are boring. Every Single one. You get a little more life... A Little more crit... But Nothing that increases the joy of gaming. Those looking for a casual game will probably not be disappointed, but personally I had hoped for a bit more depth. But 3 stars for good controls and stylish design!

Really a good game, the first update has improved it but remain some flaws. The Efficacy of healing potions has been improved but in the new dungeon "The Labyrininth" I have reached the boss after 20 floors (and having dealt with 3 old acquaintances) but I have not found a single healing potion in 20 floors. I've already dealt with it 3 times but I just can't defeat it, besides having a lot more life than the previous bosses and still calling a lot of reinforcements. 30 enemies + 1 bosses are too many... P.S. I Can only get there with the Mage P.S. 2 I look forward to bait Mage Gauntlet 2!

From a Degree of Difficulty, you can already say it. It is demanding, but never unfair, which is why there is no Frustration. Due to rogue like game mechanics, the Game is out and over after Death. Sounds unfair, but it isn't. As you get better with each Game run, pressing Retry immediately after each Death is an added Motivating Factor. There are a total of 6 Classes, with each one you can be improved by Coins collected in the Game, passive Skills. New Armaments and Weapons are randomly distributed across the Levels that give you new Skills. And, of course, there are countless Hats to collect again.

Finally someone has managed to launch a Game which costs a few euros, but there is no In-App buy Crap! The game itself has a super gameplay. The Controls are fluid, nothing jerks. The Game also has a good Level of difficulty, yet it is playable and therefore a good Challenge! I give the Game 5 * because it is also damn addictive! The Only Shortcoming That bothers me is that the Game Progress is not saved when changing Devices ... So you should also think carefully about deleting the Game for Lack of space, because when you reinstall Everything is gone ... Gold, Perks, and unlocked Characters ... Edit: It is and will remain the best Game in the Store! Buy it, it's worth it!
