"Advanced Dungeons & Pixels"

Reviewed by / Mar 06, 2014

Classical dungeon crawling

Pixel Dungeon is a little jewel among the ocean of Android retro-gaming. This doesn't mean it's the height of originality or whatever, but it's a smooth, well-thought and, in the end, fun game, suited for hardcore RPG players looking for some relaxed gameplay and curious alike. Game is pretty simple to learn, you have only to choose your class (warrior, mage or rogue so far) and roam around a dungeon full of fearsome marsupial rats and other implausible creatures while looking for treasures and, in a Heroquest-like twist, hidden doors. We'd like there was a tutorial, though.

This game is free to play, but it isn't an easy game. In fact, it's quite hard, and you'll have to learn to not face every living monster in your path. By the way, music is charming, and 8bit graphics, lovely.

Please, give this game a go. It may not have a high rating, but hasn't any remarkable flaw either.

Developer's original description available here
Pixel Dungeon is a traditional roguelike* game with pixel-art graphics and simple interface.

Explore the depths of Pixel Dungeon, collect useful items, fight fierce monsters to find Amulet of Yendor (surprise!) - the ultimate artifact of this game world.

*From Wikipedia:
"Roguelike is a sub-genre of role-playing video games, characterized by random level generation, tile-based graphics and permanent death."

Many people consider this game very difficult and luck-based. Anyway, you will die often. You are warned! :)

    My favorite android roguelike, has fun achievements and some of the best bosses. Great game to pass the time, but insanely hard! Be prepared to die..

    Dying of starvation is awesome, I use hunger in my game but instead of random drops and dead crabs, which hit hard, I offer a bit more reliable source. Ps we ALL had to cheat at nethack, even though we hate to cheat. So just a bit more food.
