I think what really makes the game complete is the bright and cartoonish graphics. Everything from the enemies you face to the items have a cheery and cartoony look. The game is also very user-friendly. You do not need to be RPG expert or hard-core fan to get into Dungelot: Shattered Lands. Anyone at any age can get into it. Even though this is the third game in the series it doesn’t feel that way. Everything you loved about the original is in this one with some new elements added in. Dungelot: Shattered Lands can be challenging but at the same time does a great job of sucking you in.

Dungelot: Shattered Lands is a fun combination of Minesweeper and a dungeon crawler that you’ll surely keep coming back to. While not without its moments of frustration, overall this game rewards you for skill more than it ruins you with bad luck. What it lacks in story it makes up for in its variety of creatures, items, challenges, and treasures.

The combat is definitely one of the high points of the game, in this case. It doesn’t force you into situations, but in some cases, some enemies may benefit from the environment. The appropriately named Rat King getting buffs for each tile of unrevealed dungeon he is touching, and other enemies also get to make use of their. Each enemy is surprisingly challenging, making fights a lot more calculated than you’d expect out of a title that has its roots in the mobile game industry. That’s not meant to be a knock against it in any way though, as Dungelot proves big things can come in smaller packages. It’s deceptively simple appearance belies a ton of content for a modest price, and if you’re in the mood for a game that is great for quick attempts or extended marathons, you’d do well to give this game a shot.

Dungelot is an enjoyable roguelike that can provide a challenge to players of almost any skill level without becoming frustrating. The twisted humor tinyBuild is known for combined with addictive easy to pick up, difficult to master gameplay makes this title a worthwhile addition to any roguelike fan’s library, especially ones with a penchant for puzzle games such as Minesweeper.

Dungelot: Shattered Lands features an interesting mix of gameplay mechanics and pulls them off, offering a fun experience. The RPG mechanics are surprisingly complex, and you can sink a lot of time into its myriad of dungeons.

This unique and charming take on the rougelike subgenre has a huge amount of potential, but is unfortunately marred by dull gameplay mechanics that are uninteresting and don’t work in their current form for what it’s trying to be.

All things considered, Dungelot is an addictive and entertaining game that manages to sink its hooks into the player for a good while. The magic might start to wear off before you fell the final foe, but you’ll ultimately leave the game with a positive experience. It won’t revolutionize the genre in the way it might have hoped, but it does show that roguelikes are capable of a lot more than simple hacking and slashing. It’s worth a look to be sure.
