Undercrawl is a roguelike dungeon crawler from indie developer Monster Shop Games. It's a genre that's popular in gaming in general but features even more frequently on mobile devices since the shorter, 'run' style of playthrough suits playing in small bursts that phones are often used for.
It's a very straightforward game in concept then. You'll make your way through a series of randomly generated dungeons and battle against the various creatures that reside there. The aim? To level up and emerge with enough gold to buy some upgrades before diving back in and doing it all again. The game is endless so you can keep on plundering until you're eventually defeated.
The game has a fantasy setting so you can imagine the types of enemies you're likely to clash swords with. There'll be skeletons, ghosts, knights and other beasties that will be hoping to put an end to your run. You can check out some gameplay in the embedded video below.
As you can see, the game plays out in a turn-based fashion and to battle an enemy you'll simply tap on their location to take a swing at them. If you're not packing enough power to take them down in one shot, you might have to use multiple attempts at the cost of some of your own health.
This will be where the tactical side of the game will come into play as you try to balance the use of your resources to ensure you're always able to beat the enemies that block your path. You can use potions to restore your health before diving back in or fire an arrow to do damage from afar. However, they have a finite number of uses, so you'll need to use them wisely.
Undercrawl is available now over on Google Play. It's a free-to-play game that's supported by ads.
