Let’s See What’s Behind Door Number Two! – Dungeon Of The Endless (iPad) Review
How can you not like game with seemingly infinite replay-value? Dungeon of the Endless is a Jambalaya of tower-defense strategy, rouge-like dungeon-crawling, contained within new-school pixel-art graphics. Originally released on Windows and Mac, Dungeon of the Endless has now found it’s way to the iPad for only $1.99(Compared to the PC/MAC version $11.99). How does it hold up on the iPad? Let’s check it out:
Entamaphobia, the fear of doors.
– Each door can either lead to your demise, surprise or prize.
– Randomly generated rooms allow infinite replay-value and keeps it fresh every run.
– Touch-controls work great with this style of gameplay. (I even preferred it over mouse-control.)
– Buy weapons, Armour and items for your team, with randomly found merchants.
– Manage and plan modules of food, science and industry, each with their own benefits.
– Plant weapons and defense systems in rooms, which helps provide defense for you and your ship’s crystal.
– Upgrade modules and defense/weapons with science currency.
– Unlock hidden characters and additional ships.
– Every level has the final, ULTIMATE challenge of transferring your crystal to the exit. (Beautiful Stress.)
– Recruit additional team members, which you find in rooms.
– Kicks your ass, with stress and difficulty. (In a good way.)
– Music creates a great atmosphere. (Dark, dreary and a bit sad.)
– Some rooms have specific parts to tap to get characters to respond to. (i.e., to get your character to go to the crystal-room, don’t tap on the crystal itself, but beside or underneath the crystal.)
– App saves at the start of each level, so don’t exit mid-level to prevent loosing unsaved progress.
– iOS version is iPAD only. (This would be my #1 app if it was on my phone!)
This game has everything I love: tower-defense, rogue-like exploring, randomly generated rooms/levels, hair-ripping, yet fair difficulty, pixel-art and MAD strategy/managing. The two starting-difficulties are Very Easy and Easy, yet the game still finds a way to put you in your place. This is what keeps bringing me back to this game, it’s hard, but you know the reason you died is your fault. Once you accept your failures, you begin developing strategies and start seeing further progression with each run. You look up at the time and it’s five-o’clock am…. This is Dungeon of the Endless.
Dungeon of the Endless for the iPad looks and works perfectly. You will play it literally endlessly, due to it’s randomly generated rooms and hard, but fair difficulty. If you own an iPad (or PC,Mac and Xbox One), you must buy this app! Especially, if you’re into tower defense, rogue-like, strategy games or all those combined. Highly recommended.
