Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: LOVE/HATE
XSEED's third/first person dungeon crawler is both good and bad. At the same time, actually.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Rob Rich on February 27th, 2013
Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: TOO OLD SCHOOL FOR COOL
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 App - Designed for iPad
By Rob Rich on January 30th, 2013
Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: OH
Dungeon Lore can be both comfortably typical and surprisingly different, but it's far too broken to appreciate either of those qualities.

Towers & Dungeons Review

By Rob Rich on December 5th, 2012
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: TOO CUTE. NO
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.

The Realm of The Deathless gets more Open in Infinity Blade: Dungeons

Posted by Rob Rich on March 9th, 2012

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.

Doodle Dungeon Fills That Special Old-School Void

Posted by Rob Rich on August 25th, 2011
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

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.

Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: FAT LOOT
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

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
By Gary Lucero on March 3rd, 2009
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: ABOVE AVERAGE
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 a
