Pros:

  • No classes instead, you choose the skills you want for your character; plenty of humor; lots of great loot and (sometimes cute) monsters; plenty of challenge.

Cons:

  • It's buggy; lack of balance (though I don't see that as a huge problem); isn't going to appeal to gamers who don't already care for roguelikes.

Dungeons of Dredmor is a great game if you find big title games such as Skyrim a bit to demanding on your time, wallet and computer. It's also great if, like me, you find the realistic graphics just a little too detailed in some of the more violent...

PCIt has been our obsession of late to relive the glory days. Developers, be they indie or established names, have featured references and throwbacks, subtle and noticeable, to the bygone eras. Some have even gone so far as to craft whole games with a...

Otherwise, Dungeons of Dredmor is a fun game, especially for rogue-like veterans, who will get its dry British wit and genre in-jokes. The game is basically the next generation of the true rogue-like, much like Fatal Labyrinth was before it. At $4.99...

Make no mistake, Dungeons of Dredmor belongs to the school of punishing, super hardcore games. You'll need as much luck as skill to even survive in the first few dungeon floors. Yet despite - or perhaps because of - its unfair challenges, Dungeons of...

Anything can await you around each corner when you're playing a roguelike game. Magical weapons, hoards of riches, dozens of monsters or a deathly trap can all be potential rewards or punishments for opening the next door. Dungeons of Dredmor is the...

Sure, it could do with a bit of spit and polish on the interface side of things and it won't keep the hardcore happy for long, but Dungeons of Dredmor is a characterful, clever and subtly complex dose of alternative roleplaying....

The "casual" roguelike that will kick your ass. An eccentric blend of easy-to-learn mechanics and punishing difficulty make this one of the most addicting and enjoyable dungeon-crawls out there. Fifteen points. After playing the game for a week, I...

International Review By bright.nl on

Een antiek rollenspel-genre, alleen populair bij hardcore gamers, is nu toegankelijk gemaakt met een flinke dosis humor. De Roguelike RPG is misschien wel het meest intense, tijdvretende en onvergeeflijke gamegenre dat er bestaat. Spelers worden in een...
