This weekend I was looking for a new iPad game to purchase, I was getting bored playing the same old games over and over again that I had on my iPad. So I found this little gem of a game, highly addictive and got a lot of friends to also purchase the game.
Dungeon Crawlers is a new turn based strategy game from Drowning Monkeys, published by Ayopa games. This takes on the feel of a classic strategy game and for all your gamer nerds gives the feel of an old school Dungeons and Dragons hack-and-slash dungeon crawl adventure.
It is highly enjoyable with great characters and a little humor thrown in the mix. The game is very linear, and for me started out slow. The game does have some nice potential and I can only see it growing in the near future. Be sure to find all the secret levels in an area as they have new weapons and items that can help in your battles.
Pros: Tactical combat is amazing and very simple. Each character you manage during combat plays a vital role and you need to think tactically so that they team works together rather than against each other. The characters level up on their own, which I enjoy and hate tactical games where you have to micro-manage every single aspect of your character.
Cons: The game does crash a lot and I hope it is fixed with a few updates. Combat does move slowly and when you have to watch the enemies turn you want to just shoot yourself in the face, sometimes when there are a lot of enemies you can go make yourself some lunch and come back, I hope they fix this in an update. There is no way to revive a fallen hero in combat, which stinks, you can restart an encounter but when they take a half hour that kind of is annoying.
Overall: I give Dungeon Crawler 9 out of 10. I had a great time playing this game and I see extreme potential with future updates and I highly recommend this to anyone that likes the classic turn based strategy game.
