The game W.E.L.D.E.R. is a strategic, word building puzzle game in which players gain points by swapping letter tiles to complete the longest words possible and using various power ups to achieve higher scores and longer words within a randomly generated field of letters.
On June 21st, developer Ayopa Games is expected to release a major update to their popular word game. This update will include a new multiplayer mode for the game that will allow players to play W.E.L.D.E.R. against their friends or random opponents via Game Center. This new multiplayer mode will allow players to go head to head, chat, use power ups to their advantage or to their opponent’s disadvantage, and even watch as their opponent’s moves.
In addition to multiplayer, this update will also include many changes to the game overall, including an undo button on the iPhone version, new prices for the Wrench powerup, and a new “Weld of the Day” word that will award players an extra Gigawatt bonus when it is built that same day.
Dungeon crawlers as a genre have certainly seen much success over the years, but that doesn’t mean that everyone loves them. It takes a certain kind of mentality to find joy in gathering tons of loot through repetitious fighting in order to fight stronger things (repetitiously) for better loot. Now assuming there was something else added to the proceedings to keep things from feeling less monotonous, something like that could draw in a bit more of a crowd. That is to say, draw in even more of a crowd. And what usually sells like crazy regardless of medium or platform? Humor.
With that in mind (I think), Ayopa Games and Drowning Monkeys have decided to unleash Dungeon Crawlers on an unsuspecting App Store. The game itself is a combination of more typical dungeon crawlers with multi-floored dungeons, loot and experience grinding and turn-based strategy RPGs. Players will control a team of four adventurers (an alchemist, priest, barbarian, and dwarven warrior) over the course of five chapters, each with their own distinct environments. They’ll also be going toe-to-toe with plenty of nasty monsters as they scrounge for stuff.
Dungeon Crawlers is slated for a January 26th release. A universal release, might I add. For a special “introductory price” of $1.99 no less.
