Pocket Heroes announced

Second only to procedural generation, cooperative gameplay seems to be the biggest trend in indie RPG development right now (Dungeon Dashers, Boot Hill Heroes and Secrets of Grindea being three examples that come immediately to mind). Adding to the pile is Pocket Heroes, a multiplayer cooperative dungeon crawler in development by F5 Games exclusively for mobile devices.

The game is multiplayer-only, with asynchronous turn-based play. From what I can tell, it looks like it uses an action points system, with each character class having a unique selection of skills at their disposal. Speaking of which, Pocket Heroes will launch with five different character classes to select from: Lunar Priestess, Dwarven Mechie, Rogue, Paladin, and what I can only assume will be some sort of mage.

Pocket Heroes was initially planned for a May 10 release, but F5 state that that’s going to be pushed back to sometime later in the month to make room for extra polish. Here is a trailer showing off an in-progress build of the game:
