Roguelike rhythm game Crypt of the Necrodancer got a surprise release on iOS — and Apple’s tvOS — today, giving dungeon-crawling dancers a new way to play the game on the go.

Crypt of the Necrodancer Pocket Edition is available from the App Store for $4.99. The game, which is playable on iPhone and iPad, supports three touchscreen control schemes: virtual D-pads, swipes and edge controls. It also supports Bluetooth controllers, according to the developer.

Crypt of the Necrodancer challenges players with adventuring through tile-based dungeons and battling monsters to the beat of a Danny Baranowsky-penned soundtrack (though the game also supports custom music).

The game was first released on PC platforms — where it supported Dance Dance Revolution dance pads — in 2015. The game came to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita earlier this year.
