New release: Mighty Dungeons
A bit of browsing around the Android app store reveals the existence of Mighty Dungeons, a “fan-made dungeon crawler crossover between old-school boardgames like Heroquest, Warhammer Quests and good oldies like Diablo I and DungeonMaster.”
Created by Laylio Games, Mighty Dungeons has been out since at least February, but hey–it’s new to me! I haven’t found a plot premise anywhere online, but we do get this description:
Wander evil-packed dungeons and battle golems, demons and other soul-less creatures with dozen of hours of gameplay through 3 campaigns, 6 heroes, a plethora of weapons, armors, potions and magic spells at your disposal.
Here’s a trailer showing off the aforementioned dungeon crawling goodness:
Personally, I’m rather fond of the way a grave–complete with wooden cross–drops from the top of the screen onto a slain monster. It’s rather comical.
Mighty Dungeons is a simple turn-based affair where you control only a single character. There doesn’t seem to be any character creation, merely selection from a roster of pre-built characters. In order to maintain variety, the creator invites people to visit his website and “submit creatures, quests and complete boards” for inclusion of future releases of the game.
Mighty Dungeons is available for Android on Google Play and iOS on the Apple app store, each for $1.99. (There is also apparently a Windows version in the works, if the game’s Greenlight page is to be believed.)
There is a free demo on Android if you want to give Mighty Dungeons a try before plunking down your $2.
