Product Description

Navigate dungeons and fight your way through hordes of creatures in this RPG

Deadly Dungeons is an RPG developed exclusively for the Android platform. This RPG is influenced in part by classic dungeon crawler games such as Dungeon Hack, Eye of the Beholder, and Nethack.

After being separated from your adventuring party, you must navigate a deadly dungeon, and fight your way through hordes of creatures in a desperate attempt to escape alive. What first begins as a simple escape to the surface turns into a fight for survival, a confrontation with an ancient evil, and a descent to hell itself.

* Massive and deadly dungeon environments to adventurer through.
* Randomly generated dungeon levels, creatures, and items.
* Multiple campaign difficulty levels with more powerful creatures and items.
* Continuous monthly updates that enhance and extend the game.
* First-person dungeon crawling rendered using OpenGL ES.
* Touch-based interface.

Edit...9/27/2012 There have been several updates to this game since my original review, all for the better. This is game is definitely one of the best games out there, android or apple, and keeps getting better. And what other game does the developer (see comments) answer/address your concerns directly?

Following is the original review with updates at the end:

This is a good game but as of now it has some minor flaws on a Kindle Fire. First you cannot use earphones because this game makes you play it in portrait mode and the earphone jack is at the bottom of the Kindle and you have to hold up the Kindle or it will keep hitting and rubbing the plug on the earphones. Yep, it plays in portrait mode. Once you start playing it is apparent to me this game would be much better in landscape mode. Another problem is that you cannot rotate the Kindle in any other position so now you also will have it turning itself off sometimes because the on/off button it at the bottom of the Kindle and as you set the Kindle down, it will hit the button and automatically turn itself off.

This game is a dungeon crawler that uses the one step position method. You hit a button and you move one step forward, backward, to the right or to the left. To keep moving forward you have to hit the button again. Also you can only face in four positions, north, south, west or east (although you can use your finger on the screen and look around). But with the map, you actually can move around pretty fast by just hitting the direction you want to go several times, that helps a lot. Game is a RPG with typical setup of crawling around the dungeon gaining experience and getting better weapons and armor. There is also the ability to buy and sell goods. But it has VERY old school graphics and movement.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Like My Dungeons Deadly July 21, 2011
Verified Purchase
Did you play PC games from the time Atari 2600 was on store shelves till Playstation 2 was released? If you were like me you avoided all the consoles in between that time because they never had good dungeon crawlers or DnD-type RPGs. Deadly Dungeons is a surprising indepth dungeon crawler that plays much like netHack or ultima underworld. If you miss this type of game then you definitely need to play this one and for only .99 cents what's stopping you!?

I grew up playing first-person 3D dungeon crawlers back on the Apple ][e, Commodore 64, and the venerable IBM 8088 when shareware games came of 5" floppies in magazines. Back then, consoles were in their infancy and NES was nearly a decade away. If you remember those days, or you've heard your parents (or, yikes, grandparents) talk fondly of those first games, then you are in for a treat: this is a highly enjoyable game that will get you close to Ye Olde Days of Yore.

You get to choose your character and customize his or her stats, and name him or her. After the backstory, You "awake" in a cavern and immediately find yourself in an encounter. Assuming you aren't killed, there's loot to pick up. Navigate around the dark cavern, and you'll either find another encounter or a way to continue on. The play feels very much like the maze navigation from back in the day, and I do recommend you play this in the dark since the game starts out pretty dark (hey, you are in an underground cave with no light source, okay?).

The stereo music in the menu is truly worthy of the term "epic". The ambient sounds of the cave are fantastic, and the battle sounds are retro, which go great with the retro graphics! True, the graphics on a 10" tablet could have been better, as this looked in the beginning as if it belonged on a phone. But while playing, it felt so much more like those legacy games I cut my gaming teeth on that I started remembering some of those sessions from 30 years ago. If you've ever played a D&D RPG (role playing game) or something similar, whether electronically or with paper and pencil, you have a good idea of what you're about to get into.

What's shocking to me is that this is only 99-cents?!? Really?!?

5.0 out of 5 stars Deadly Dungeons November 30, 2011
By Rob
Verified Purchase
This game is really great. It reminds me of all my old favorite RPGS on the NES and SNES, only better! Many improvements were made to that old engine and layout, such a surprisingly epic music score and the ability to look around yourself outside of turning with the pad. And then there is the list of abilities; a huge list of spells and techniques reminiscent of Diablo II.

This is one of the few games I can say is actually better than what it emulates.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great unexpected update! High replay value. August 9, 2012
By E.Soto

Bought this as a good dungeon crawler to mess around with. Game has lots of ways to build your character and fighting styles (magic or weapon types). Added bonus of monster graphic update from 2D to 3D realistic recently gives this game my final 5 Star rating on the Kindle Fire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Dungeon Crawler January 19, 2013
Verified Purchase
After LoG rekindled my love of classic dungeon crawlers, I look for one on every device I own. I have played through a few levels of Deadly Dungeons on my Kindle Fire HD, and I love what code_zombie has created here. While the game isn't especially deep, it has the fundamentals. There isn't a lot in the way of a story, but all I really care about in these games is crushing monsters and taking their loot while exploring a large grid map, which is exactly what this game is. The controls are easy to use and the graphics have a classic feel. Worth .99 any day.
