"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! :)

    after brogue was ported over to the phone and tablet I Played that for a while and I did not like it and I was on a quest to find a better rogue like on the android. this one is a must have for rogue like fans. It plays well and the art is nice. A good change from the classic "@" symbol.

    This has to be the best game I've played on Android its taken place of my emulators that allow me to play ACTUAL games on my phone. Because of the random generation I never play the same game twice and I have a hard time putting it down. Can't wait for a sequel!!

    Constantly improving, very simplified, and the maker is very personable and reliable
