Interesting. I would have made quite a different approach :D

I thought, the right click menu would be your choice. I mean like, you click on an enemy, then a circle of possibilities appear around the enemy. If you drag attack/fireball/whatever, a prediction appears. If you drag it to the enemy, the action is executed.

But the drawer thing looks cool :D I dont know if its intuitive enough^^

Interesting! I'm really looking forward to trying this out, though I get the feeling that mobile Desktop Dungeons is going to make all other portable gaming obsolete for me... :P

Looks promising! Can't wait to also play DD on the go :D
I wonder if all these mobile changes will also have an impact on the desktop version or are these changes mobile only?

The game is being updated on PC as well, so things like the enemy selection changes will be carried across, but not 100% the same as on mobile.

Hopefully with a menu toggle, the same as you did with that drag feature. Mouse-over works way better in a PC environment than a two-stage selection process, and I don't want to be bogged down by it personally.

The toggle options will stay the same. The thing that's getting replaced is the right-click selection UI on PC. That's just the standard interaction mode for enemies on mobile ;)
