Escape from the grind
by Jon Mundy 18/6/2014
Developer: Korigame Entertainment
Format: iPhone, iPad
Genre: Action, RPG
Developer: "I've got a new game coming out."
Friend: "Oh yeah? What's it all about?"
Developer: "I'm not entirely sure, but it's a bit... oh, I don't know... DUNGEONy."
That's how I imagine DUNGEONy got its name. And do you know what? It is a bit dungeony, but that's the least of its charms.
The whole roguelike dungeon-crawling thing is the current go-to ingredient for the genre-splicer. If in doubt, stir in a little perma-death and a smattering of random level design, and you're laughing.
It's led to some memorable and diverse creations, from Wayward Souls to Tales of the Adventure Company. I reckon it's safe to add DUNGEONy to that list too.
A deceptively tactical roguelike RPG that offers an immediate yet considered dungeon-crawling experience
