New release: Dungeon Monsters
Word reaches me that French indie developers Mana Cube have just released a mobile first-person dungeon delver in the Shin Megami Tensei vein called Dungeon Monsters.
Collect over 400 units, evolve them into fierce fighters and come up with clever battle strategies. Roam the depths of the underground and save the world from a lurking evil, grabbing serious loot along the way in this ground-breaking first-person RPG. But watch your steps in the dungeons! For you will forever rot underground should your torch run out before you’ve managed to find the exit.
Here’s a trailer:
For better and worse, Dungeon Monsters is free to play with in-app-purchases. Along those lines, one of the game’s innovations is a torch mechanic which limits the number of steps you have available to complete a dungeon level; when the light goes out, you have to restart. Refilling the torch so you can keep exploring a dungeon level costs real-life money.
