Dungeon Quest is a simple yet exciting action RPG oriented by hack-n-slash combat through 200 randomly generated levels in the dungeon. With its great variety of floors, enemies and loots, the game offers an addictive dungeon-crawling experience that is enjoyable in both short bursts of play and long sessions.
Dungeon Quest does not have any storyline or quests. It thrusts you into the first floor of the dungeon immediately after you select your character. From the first level you figure out the game control, which is quite simple and self-explanatory with the virtual joystick and several buttons, and fight several enemies with ease. Whether you play a warrior or a wizard, you basically hack and slash randomly generated monsters and environmental items while collecting coins, mana points, various gear and all other drops. And when you clear a map and reach the portal you can enter another floor for a brand new challenge.
The great variety of drops and enemy types is its highlight. As you push through levels you run into a plethora of enemies that behave and attack uniquely – some attack brutally or spit poison in close quarter while others release rolling stones or shoot arrows in a distance. Even the environmental objects are diverse. If you are one of those who won’t leave a floor without every stone unturned, you’d better split those barrels, treasure chests or other objects there in a safe distance, for with potential treasures there are also hidden danger like a wind swirl and a puff of smoke with debuff effects.
With progression in floors you face increasingly stronger mobs and bosses. Big or small, enemies have their weak points. So you need to pick the suitable elemental weapons to effectively swipe them away. Dungeon Quest has tons of weapon and equipment, some bearing elemental buff and so adding special abilities to your fighter. The skull gloves, for instance, allow you to summon ghost assistants to battle; the snowflake-market wand deals blows with special slow-down effects; and the lightning cape boosts your dodging abilities and critical hits. Due to this gear-based talent system, you can experiment all sorts of combinations and enjoy the unexpected combat effects in battle.
With the great variety of loots, the inventory space is far from enough. While it’s not a problem in the first several floors, it becomes one soon with your adventure. You need to constantly sort your bag and sell the ordinary ones when you have the elemental twin of the same type. Meanwhile, you can purchase more slots for earned coins or for real cash. To speak of IAP, it’s there as always offering advantages like extra character slots or early access to pets but generally it’s optional if you’d like to take time saving coins.
Dungeon Quest offers simple yet addictive single-player dungeon crawling game play with its solid 200 different floors, quick and exciting combat and rich variety of loots. And it explores the free-to-play plus IAP model decently, which is a big plus to the worth-download recommendation.
