I was honestly a little excited to play Dungeon Crawlers, but disappointed at the result. Dungeon Crawlers is a turn based 3rd person role playing game. The idea behind Dungeon Crawlers is to have fun, turn based combat, so that you can do more than one thing while you play your video game. However, I honestly did not think it was worth it. Basically, if you like turn based combat, this game CAN be interesting. Maybe I’m just not the biggest fan. Dungeon Crawlers is set obviously in a dungeon where you are exploring and fighting your way through various monsters. The game is supposed to be funny as well as entertaining. You have 3 characters to control: a tank, a damage dealer, and a healer. They have conversations between themselves as you go. The conversations are supposed to be funny, but unless you’re 10, you probably won’t enjoy the humor. The combat system is interesting at first, but I really feel like it lacks some action. You click through your targets and destroy them one by one, until you get to the end of combat then go back to exploring, then fight again, and then explore some more… it goes on and on. If you are someone that is looking for turn based combat then this is an obvious choice, but most people are not. The graphics and sound leave something to be desired as well.
Dungeon Crawlers Walkthrough / Guide
Using your units correctly is a big deal. The melee fighter that looks all buff, is obviously your tank. Positioning him in front of harmful enemies so that he takes the most damage is important. Your healer and damage dealer are too lightly armored to take many hits. Use the damage dealer to eliminate high priority targets, either ones that do massive damage or ones blocking your tank’s path. The healer is obvious, he keep your guys alive.
Graphics: Low. Really was not impressed at all here. I’ve seen better, even for these types of games.
Sound/Music: Low. Same as the graphics, the sounds seem hollow like you are listening to them through a tube or something.
Pros: Turn based combat?
Cons: Too many to list honestly. In any respect there are always people who are looking for certain game types. I personally was not looking for turn based combat but figured I would give it a shot. The preface listed on iTunes seemed interesting, but I was foiled. Especially not for $3.99.
Addiction level: Low. Very low.
