About the Game

Deep in the underworld of Ardania, a threat of the most evil nature grows and multiplies with an appetite for destruction that is unsurpassed. Summoned from the depths of the Bottomless Pit, the (once) mighty Báal-Abaddon has been torn from his throne of skulls and imprisoned in an earthly body of less-than-imposing stature (he's an Imp, OK?) to serve the none-too-competent sorcerer Oscar van Fairweather. But unfortunately for Fairweather, the luck of the damned is on Báal's side and he soon breaks free to build his own dark and majestic... Impire.


Take control the of demon Báal-Abaddon as he attempts to rebuild his mighty hell spawn form.

From what I can tell, public opinion on this game was heavily tarnished by the fact that the game made the fatal sin of NOT being Dungeon Keeper. Regardless of it's lukewarm to cold reception, I found the game to be fun to play as a squad based RTS with some light base building. Essentially, this game was what Dungeons was shooting for and missed. So if you felt like Dungeons was terrible, but found the ideas intriguing I'd definitely recommend you load up Impire and give it a spin. It's not a flawless game by any means, but still manages to be a humorous, challenging, and moderately fresh way to kill a Sunday afternoon.

One of the most atmospheric dungeon-based games I played, the graphic style, the mood, the neat sound effects all add nicely.

You can, for example, zoom the 3d-view out until you get a top-down map like view with different symbols for your rooms, if you hover the mouse over these room symbols a new window suddenly appears and shows whats going on in these rooms.

In good old rpg- style you can upgrade and level your units, grow your avatar with things like bigger wings, stronger claws and later branch out into the mage, commander or warrior path with different visualizations.

And one more point to add: the developers are very active in communicating with their player base and listening at their wishes in the forums!

To sum it up - a fantastic game.

Simple review, this is a strategy game that reminds me of D&D, in this case you play the bad guys, and create a dungeon for heroes to pillage. Then you kill said heroes. And find treasure, and create an army of minions to do evil tidings.

Very simple to learn, and very fun to play.

Highly recommend.

At first glance, the game looks as if it's a successor to Dungeon Keeper ..If you go in thinking that, you'd be wrong.

Sure, it seems to have the look that could be perceived as a spirtual sucessor to Dungeon Keeper however only the atmosphere and humour could be loosely based on Dungeon Keeper.

To summarise, you play the role of a demon known as "Baal-Abaddon", whom of which is summoned by a not so smart sorcerer named Oscar, into the lowly form of an Imp. The gist of the game is helping Baal to gain his lost powers and to terrorise the surrounding land of Ardania in the ol' "Evil is good" sort of way.

You start each level with a handful of workers and Baal, building up your dungeon with pre-laid out rooms and creating/summoning units to form squads to go raid for materials/gold/food and to defend from hero invasions from the front and/or ladders (With the addition of choosing random/fixed/no ladders, thank god!).

The game can get tedious and rather monotonous as the general tone of each level is essentially build up dungeon, build up troops, raid, rinse and repeat until you're strong enough to go into the main part of the level. The main part of the level is usually the same (With an ending "Boss" of sorts) however getting there can change from level to level. The most part is the same, however on some levels there are some puzzles which can be somewhat challenging to start with.

With the patches that were released since the release of the game, it seems to be a lot more stable compared with release. Fortunately there doesn't seem to be as many crashes/problems/bugs which was ultimately frustrating for those that first had the game as there isn't a save game as such.

On the whole, I enjoyed the game. Sure, it gets a bit repetative but I enjoyed the cheesy humour.

TL;DR - Not a successor to Dungeon Keeper but is loosely influenced by its atmosphere and humour. Game can get very monotonus and tedious but is fun at times. A lot better than what it once was on release due to bug fixes.
