Evilibrium Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Evilibrium is yet another sad example of how free-to-play games can be extremely cynical experiences.

Heroes of Loot Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Heroes of Loot is about as close to pure, distilled arcadey dungeon-crawling joy as we're ever likely to get.

Dark Avenger Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Dark Avenger certainly isn't the deepest or most compelling action RPG on the App Store but it can be good fun in short bursts.

Dark Quest Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Dark Quest might not sport the best name in the world, but it makes good use of a rather eclectic mix of gameplay ideas.

Alien Zone is an amateurish, futuristic dungeon crawler that's really worth a look.

Mighty Dungeons might be a relatively bland Roguelike, but it's a fantastic board game.

QuestLord Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Getting from Point A to Point B can be a bit of a drag, but QuestLord is still a fun and accessible throwback to classic Western RPGs.

Ark of the Ages Review

XSEED's third/first person dungeon crawler is both good and bad. At the same time, actually.

Dungeon Masters Review

iPad Only App - Designed for the iPad
This retro homage to one of the Atari's earliest dungeon crawlers is a bit too retro for its own good.

Dungeon Lore Review

iPad Only App - Designed for the iPad
Dungeon Lore can be both comfortably typical and surprisingly different, but it's far too broken to appreciate either of those qualities.

Build a tower that stretches to the heavens or a dungeon that reaches into the depths of the earth in this free-to-play builder that's high on style, and unfortunately overdrawn on adorable.

Even with all the praise the Infinity Blade series has gotten since its introduction, there’s usually one major complaint people have: there’s no freedom of movement. A rather silly gripe seeing as open-world style exploration isn’t the point (plus it would be ridiculously taxing on the hardware with those graphics), but it’s still probably the most common one seen in user reviews and the like. Infinity Blade: Dungeons has no such movement restrictions. It’s also a fairly major departure from the gameplay series fans are used to.

Infinity Blade: Dungeons takes place thousands of years before the events in the first game, with players taking control of a weaponsmith on a quest to forge the legendary sword that’s at the center of it all. At its core, it’s a dungeon crawler. No more tapping from point-to-point and watching cutscenes and no more one-on-one bouts. Enemies can and will swarm and the player character can and will destroy them mightily with plenty of fast-paced combat and AOE (area of effect) strikes. And of course, being a weaponsmith means there will also be crafting. No word yet on what that would entail, specifically, but it’s going to be in there.

Infinity Blade: Dungeons is due out later this year (no specific date or price, naturally). It’s looking like it’ll be available across most iOS platforms, but will look its best on the iPad 2 as expected.

Fun Vault Games has just released Doodle Dungeon on an unsuspecting App Store. And while it may be a little too obvious with its inspirations (read: it’s Gauntlet with doodles), it also captures the essence as well or even better than most other iOS attempts. That and it doesn’t cost a dime.

Now when I say it’s “a little too obvious,” I don’t just mean that it uses the same top-down perspective. It also features the same four classes (warrior, wizard, Valkyrie and ranger/elf), the same floor-to-floor progression, the same mobs of enemies pouring out of destructible generators and even the same level layouts in a few places. I’m not crying foul or anything, because it doesn’t attempt to hide any of this, but it’s something worth noting. For better or worse.

I’m inclined to think it’s for the better though, seeing as there’s no official iOS release (of Gauntlet) available right now. It’s bound to excite anyone who’s poured hours into any of the original game’s iterations, from the arcade to the PlayStation Network store. Doodle Dungeon is available right now, and I reiterate: it’s totally free.

Underworlds

Underworlds

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Underworlds is a Diablo clone through and through, all the way down to the final movie. I don't mean that in a bad way though, because nothing makes me happier than a good dungeon romp.

Rogue Touch

Rogue Touch

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Anyone who likes a good dungeon hack will probably enjoy Rogue Touch. Be sure to set your expectations for graphical splendor appropriately low, though, as this old school RPG uses simple 2D sprites in its randomly generated dungeons. While the graphics are decidedly low-tech they are quite appropriate considering this is a port of one of the oldest RPGs in existence.
