The Dark Wizard has returned from his long, evil slumber to mess with the poor town of Villageshire. Once again, he’s stolen their only source of magical protection: the Orb! Now, it's up to a crazy, adventuring hero to fight hordes of deadly monsters to get the dumb thing back and save the town. Success grants rewards beyond your wildest dreams! Fail and they probably won't even send someone down for the body. Use your wits, skills, training and nerve to overcome the Dark Wizard’s obstacles and recover the Orb!
Reviews are in, and people say that The Dungeon rocks!
Game on Mac says: ". . .out of every roguelike I've played (and I've played many), this is the one I keep coming back to."
NoDPad says: "The Dungeon is perfect for quick forays, and a great semi-traditional roguelike for when you have a little time to kill."
Choose your Adventurer!
Knight: Knows armor, and takes a beating like nobody's business.
Fighter: Great at putting the hurt on fools, and really knows his weapons.
Wizard: Rocks out with super rad wands, and loves him some magics.
Sage: He actually knows how to read! Wow! Sadly, scrolls are his only friends. :(
Alchemist: Master of potions, and not a bad cook, either.
Jeweler: A delicate man, able to identify powerful rings and artifacts.
Jones: His bravery outweighs his skill. He might be a bit crazy.
* Seven classes, all with their own individual strengths and weaknesses.
* Oodles and oodles of monsters ripe for the slaying.
* More treasure than you can shake a wand at! Two wands won’t even get the job done. This is a three-wand kind of deal.
* Forty levels of adventuring fun. Fun! You can’t beat that!
* Sling spells, wield weapons, quaff potions, eat food, and vanquish monsters!
* High scores, both local and Game Center!
* Play your own music, and mute the game's audio!
Minor bug fixes and improvements.
Ratings and Reviews
Almost as good as the original
Really enjoy this game. I agree with earlier review regarding how hard it is to find food. You go through it way too quickly. I’ve literally died of starvation within sight of the exit.
It would also be nice to make the levels progressively narrower as you get deeper, like the original. And bring back the digging wand!
Great *FAST* roguelike
This game is strongly based on an old game called Dungeon of Doom. This was the first computer game I ever played with a mouse (mid-80's, one of the first b&w macs), and recently I was hoping to find a modern port. This implementation is very good- a quick fun game that you can pick up for any length of time and not have to worry about a ton of commands. It's no nethack, but that is a good thing for a game on your phone. Looking forward to more improvements in future updates.
Not Ready for Prime Time
This game appears to be released before many of the planned features are in. On Touch Arcade the dev has stated that he plans a lot of further development. But for now, this is bare bones, no options (literally no options, as in no options like turning off sound) game.
If you like Rogue/Hack type games, there are better options at this point for the price. That said, this is not a bad game, just a game that should not have been released yet. It still needs play testing and balancing. So it might be worth the $2.99 some day. But clearly this seems like a case where a developer released a game early, hoping to get some interest first in order to justify spending more time on it and completing his work. Bad business.
