From the Manufacturer

Dungeons follows the mis-adventures of the foremost of all Dungeon Lords, who spends his time luring heroes into his labyrinthine creations with the promise of treasure and a good fight - only to be trapped by his ingenious devices. Once they are in his grasp, our Dungeon Lord must look after and cherish his new prisoners until they are more comfortable with their surroundings because come the "harvest", happy heroes have more precious soul energy for you to gleefully extract via twisted torture chambers!

In Dungeons, our protagonist falls victim to a devious plot hatched by his vile, nasty and thoroughly vicious ex-girlfriend and finds himself at the bottom of the underworld hierarchy and the top of the dungeon pile which in this world is about as bad as it can get. Our Lord must have his revenge, and make his way back down the dungeon levels to his rightful place - but first he must deal with his new bosses, the three despicable Dungeon Lords who stand in his way.

At his disposal are his dim-witted goblin minions who dig tunnels and build rooms to lay out his lair and trap ever stronger and braver heroes who dare to enter, not forgetting to plot his revenge against his ex-girlfriend and his new bosses who think it’s great fun to bombard him with useless tasks. It goes without saying that a malicious and sneaky creature such as our Dungeon Lord has more than a few tricks up his sleeve. Revenge will be sweet indeed.

  • A New Take on "Tower Defense" - waves of heroes will invade your dungeons - it's up to you to entertain, then capture these foolish interlopers and steal their soul energy
  • Show Off Your Skills - use nearly 300 objects to craft a dungeon that shows off your talents and style, while attracting heroes to their doom
  • Command Thy Minions - wimpy goblins, clattering skeletons, fierce Zombie Kings and a huge variety of other creatures await your bidding - be it digging out a room, guarding treasure or stalking unwary invaders
  • Variety is the Spice of (Undead) Life - 15 monster types, 10 hero classes and 20 challenging campaign missions and a free-play/sandbox mode combine to create a staggering amount of replay value

    4.0 out of 5 stars Better than I expected February 28, 2011
    Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
    As a long-time fan of Dungeon Keeper, watching the news about this game was something of a roller-coaster ride.

    First, I heard that it was inspired by DK and DK2. Awesome!

    Second, I heard that it failed to be anything like it. Sad story, that.

    Third---and finally---reviews started coming in that weren't targeted solely at whether or not Dungeons = Dungeon Keeper 3. So I picked it up to give it a look-see.

    The game is NOT DK3. It is, however, clearly inspired by it (which was all the developers claimed)---and it was also inspired by Diablo, Baldur's Gate, and Overlord (or other, similar games, if not those precisely).

    THE GOOD
    1. Basic gameplay is pretty easy to pick up, but has enough complexity that you can learn to do a lot more than just survive the level.
    2. The flavor-text is funny, irreverent, and referential---the DK and Diablo series both get very strong references. Dungeons is reminiscent of the more parody-driven parts of BGII, or the entirety of Overlord in that respect.
    3. Speaking of which, the gameplay has learned a lot from DK, Diablo, and BGII. The construction interface is similar (not identical) to DK's, the way your monsters and heroes fight can be compared to combat in Diablo (from which many of your skill/spell tree abilities seem inspired as well), and the quests you must fulfill for quest-giving dungeon bosses is somewhere between Diablo and Baldur's Gate style.
    4. Progression of your power (and hero power) in any given dungeon is pretty well timed. Yes, the timer might seem annoying sometimes---but it is slow enough, and the power steps incremental enough, that without it I'd feel like all I had to do was plant my starting dungeon and just wait to slowly accumulate the resources I need.

    2.0 out of 5 stars A Disappointment February 16, 2011
    Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
    Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
    A spiritual successor to the Dungeon Keeper series, "Dungeons" gives a good attempt but misses out on a lot of the things that made DK great.

    Like Dungeon Keeper, Dungeons is a game about, well, building a dungeon. In DK, the goal was to set up an ecosystem by keeping monsters happy, harvesting gold, and killing heroes who intruded on your underground lair. "Dungeons" takes a different approach: the goal is to make the heroes happy, thus raising their "soul energy", and then killing them when they're happiest. Therefore, while DK focused on building different rooms to accommodate your monsters, "Dungeons" has rooms to attract heroes based on their differing needs.

    There are three major resources in Dungeons. The first of these is "prestige", which is gained by placing atmospheric items, such as flickering torches, dusty coffins, and piles of bones, around your dungeon. Building up prestige unlocks new items and objects. The second resource is "souls", which is gained by killing happy heroes and is used to build prestige items. The third resource is gold, which is used to buy things like monsters and room accessories, but can also be set out as a lure for heroes (though it's best to kill them before they escape the dungeon with it).

    One thing that bothers me about Dungeons is that the setup leaves little room for creativity. Unlike Dungeon Keeper, where rooms served a direct purpose, the purpose of rooms in Dungeons is to lure in heroes - warriors will try to steal things from armories, wizards will peruse libraries, and...that's about it. There's no sense that you're actually building a working dungeon, it's just a dungeon-themed park.

    2.0 out of 5 stars About as good as Minesweeper March 30, 2011
    Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
    Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
    I just want to preface this by saying that I am reviewing this game for what it is, and judging it by the standard of a game in itself. I am not judging it in comparison with Dungeon Keeper or any other game, because it's really too dissimilar.

    Dungeon Building: The game starts off with a series of hallways and rooms already created. You can have your goblins dig out squares to fashion your own rooms, and hallways. You can dig your way to the rooms previously established, by digging tunnels as well. These rooms normally have some sort of advantage that you can use. Digging requires careful planning, to ensure heroes stay in your dungeon without getting too close to your dungeon heart. Overall I would say that the construction part of the game feels limited. I can't do simple things like build doors between rooms. It would look more like a dungeon, and would be cool to force heroes to find keys. Rooms can be uniquely identified by adding things like bookshelves or weapons racks. Depending on how you decorate, the floor will automatically change.
    2/5

    Dungeon Decorating: Decorating has so much potential, where you can add numerous items to the dungeon to personalize it and make it interesting. Dungeons does a good job of making it worth your while to decorate, but does it excessively to the point where it's mandatory. Most of the decorations I could care less about, and don't even look all that interesting. Most of the time I just end up spamming decorations in an area to get my prestige up (a form of currency gained by decorating). If you spend too much time decorating an area to look nice, you'll miss out on essential parts of the game. It's hard to make an area actually look nice anyway because there aren't many decorations.

    This can be fun for kids, but offers no real challenges for teens through adults. The graphics are better than some but not nearly what I had hope for.
