We've also nuked a couple of bugs around the daily dungeon leaderboards and generally just winkled out some even MORE obscure issues that were bothering us (and you, yes, you... We noticed, thanks).

The final version of this game did not hold my attention nearly as much as a very early pre-releases I played prior. The core gameplay loop seems, somehow, sullied and made less fun by the metaworld gameplay?

Good roguelike with interesting game mechanics and balanced gameplay. Offers challenges and takes some effort to really get into the right way of playing it successfully, but after you do, it offers enjoyable experiences. Gets to be a bit repetitive after a while, but still I recommend checking it out!

It's like a more complex version of Minesweeper. The video on the store page actually describes it pretty well.

Loving it. A rogue-ish, tile-based dungeon crawler with a town-building metagame. If you ever played the mobile game "Dungeon Ascendancy," this feels a lot like that. It's a bit puzzly because you need to carefully plan what order to kill enemies in and when to use spells as opposed to using your regular attack. Since uncuvering unexplored tiles is your primary healing method, you also have to keep yourself from exploring the whole dungeon before killing any monsters.

DD seems like a really excellent base engine for some game-changing DLC or a very interesting sequel.

Just rediscovered this game. I played the hell out of the free version and this one builds on that very solid foundation.
Quick puzzle roguelike that keeps me up playing dungeon after dungeon.
The new, non-random puzzle levels help tutorialze some of the more obscure mechanics and are a welcome additon.

There is a good game hidden in here. But Jesus does it have a steep learning curve. Not sure I have the time to spend on it, but the concept of a strategy Minesweeper sorta rougelike with fantasy trappings is neat. 6.5/10.

A great little game. It doesn't require full screen to be good - in a sense it's like an advanced form of minesweeper in that you can have it running in a corner of the screen while doing other stuff and return to it during slow times for a turn or two.

The pacing feels right. It plays more like a puzzle game than an action game - but that's a plus.

A management and rogue-lite game based on the concept of clearing levels and collecting stuff and doing missions by clearing the entire level and surviving.

I quite like the simplistic charm and persistant progression of the town building, and the constant challanges.

I'm kind of torn on this game. It's obviously well done and gets great reviews. That said, I don't enjoy it very much. I was looking for a game that could I could play quickly on the go or as in between other games and based on the reviews, this seemed to be it.

I've played around 15 hours now, and just don't enjoy it that much. If you like rogue-like puzzlers then it's probably a good game for you. For me, it just lacks that balance between depth of gameplay and casual mental involvement. If you approach this game casually, you'll almost certainly never win (other then the few introductory games); and if you approach it to win, then it's certainly neither casual.

I also found the depth of gameplay everyone talks about to be a bit lacking. After getting frustrated, unable to beat even the first "normal" dungeons, I read a couple of the brief introductory help guides on the community page. Yes, there are some nuances around skills and abilities, but once you get the "always kill monsters higher level than yourself", that's about 90% of what you need to understand and succeed in this game.

Is there skill involved in this game? Absolutely. Is it well done? Yes. Could it be a nice, quick diversion or an entire Friday night's gaming session? Totally. Is it for me - no. I feel bad giving this game a thumbs down, and it feels like I'm totally mission something, but for me it just isn't there. I am compelled to play it from time to time - but unfortunately just in that compulsive "gotta get the next upgrade" kind of way, not the good "OMG I can't wait to play Desktop Dungeons" kins of way.

Desktop dungeons is a rogue like game with a lot of variety and content but is very challenging, possible too much. If this doesn't scare you away I'd recommend you try this game out.

I bought this game thinking: "It would be nice to have a game, I can just play for 15-30mins at the time, and get on with my day". Here I am 12h later, on the day of purchase :D This game is great! A lot more to it than I expected. Development of a settlement, and unlocking clases and races, all done with a nice sense of humor. I'd recomend this to everyone who likes (difficult) rougelikes, fantasy lore and logic problem solving. Go get it!

A great rogue-like rpg/puzzle hybrid with hours of gameplay value.

Pros:
+ Artwork: All functioning, no roughness, all easy on the eye
+ Soundtrack: Even its short, repetition doesnt bore you
+ Gameplay: Every dungeon is a puzzling challenge. Solving something always rewards. Many progression aspects for further gameplay.
+ Mechanics: Everything works as it is meant to be. Didnt encounter any bugs. Puzzle system is superb!

Cons:
- Sometimes a randomly generated dungeon might be too hard or impossible to solve. (Even tho' you can exit the dungeon forehand and carry your earnings, even losing is rewarding.)
- Even the game is cool and all, i find its price a little bit much.


If you want a good puzzle game (with rpg-roguelike spice on it), this is the game for you. Dont miss this one.

I am at 15 hours played and still have not played every map, not even close. Not to speak of the huge amount of puzzles and challenges I have barely touched. The game has an achievement for 100h playtime, which I will probably get with normal playtime and without getting burned out on the game. You feel smarter after every beaten dungeon and after every little intended "exploit" in the mechanics you find. It gets harder really fast and it takes a while before you understand all of the games concepts and figure out how to play each of the countless classes. I still have not even unlocked all classes, maps and buildings in the game.

You might think $15 is too much for how the game looks, but the content is worth it so much.

ローグライク風のパズル要素が強いゲーム.
「RPG要素のあるマインスイーパー」と評されることもあり、その例えもわりとしっくりくる感じのパズル寄りゲーム.

1フロアだけのダンジョンを探索してボスを倒すのが目的.
強いボスを倒すためには,ダンジョンを探索して有用なアイテムを探したりプレイヤーが倒せる敵を探してレベルアップをする必要がある.

配置されている敵は襲ってくることはないので安心して探索することができるが,このゲームの最も重要なルールのひとつとして"視界を確保していない未探索のエリアを探索するとHPとMPが回復する"というルールがある.つまり,無闇にダンジョンを探索すると敵配置がわかってアイテムを得ることはできるが回復の為のリソースを失うことになる.

このゲームは限られたリソースを管理しながらダンジョンを打開するパズル要素の強いゲームである.



プレイヤーのクラス(職業),敵の種類,ダンジョンはそれぞれ幅広く用意されており,ゲームの進行に応じてアンロックされていくのでリプレイ性やモチベーションを高めている.クラスに応じてプレイスタイルもだいぶ変わるのでやり込むひとにも十分なボリュームが用意されている.

操作性は簡潔で,UIも見やすく使いやすく丁寧,アートワークにも力を入れている.

必要な英語力については,ゲームのルールを理解するぶんには簡単な英語がわかれば十分という感じ.フレーバーテキストのような文章を読むときは少し面倒だけどゲームを楽しむだけならばそこまで英語の理解力は求められない.

1プレイ約30分。ローグライクというよりはローグ系をモチーフにロジックパズルとして昇華したゲームという印象です。将棋や麻雀がつまらないわけがないというレベルでゲームシステムが完成されてます。

マップのどこかに居るレベル10のボスを倒すのが(1プレイ)の目的です。マップの未踏破領域を明らかにするとHP/MPが回復するというのが大まかなルール。マップはスクロールしたりせず完全1画面。『不思議のダンジョン』のようにこちらが動くと相手が動いたりはせずプレーヤーの独壇場。おまけに攻撃した際の戦闘結果すら「死にます」「倒せます」「毒を受けるけど倒せます」と事前に教えてくれる親切ぶり。プレーヤーの負けは原則として「死」では無く「リタイア」になります。

「敵を倒し→マップを埋めて回復し→また敵を倒す」わけなんですが、普通に殴りあうと同じレベルのモンスターになんとか勝てると言ったところ、そしてモンスターの数にも限りがあり普通に格下の敵を倒して行ってもレベルが足りずボスで詰みます。上のレベルの敵を倒した時に得られる「ボーナス経験値」を得ていく必要があり、それを魔法だったりクラスの特性だったりを活用し狙い所を探るというのがゲームの基本になります。有用な魔法が序盤で手に入れば良いですが、なかなか見つからないと無駄に未踏破領域(=回復リソース)を消費してしまいその辺の葛藤があります。
あと1回攻撃できれば倒せるのにー!という「ぬおおぉ…感」、そしてこりゃもうダメかな…という状況から神がかり的なやりくりをしてボスを倒した時の最後の1クリックの達成感はクセになりますわ。

1プレイは約30分ですが、クエストによるアンロック要素が豊富で、「この職業でこのダンジョンをクリアせよ!」みたいなクエストをクリアしていくと選べる職業が増えたりアイテムがアンロックしたりするわけです。そして前述ルールはあくまで基本でダンジョンごとにユニークな仕掛けがあるわけですよ。プレイ回数☓30分と考えるとプレイ時間は格段に長くなるでしょう、毎回すんなりクリア出来ませんしね!サッとクリアしてさぁ次のゲーム!というよりはずっとアクセサリーとして置いておきたくなるようなゲームです。

英語の壁。日本語非対応、おまけに日本語の情報サイトはほぼ皆無です。ゲーム自体は感覚で分かるように出来てますし大体のアイテム等は「使えば分かる」んですが、クエスト等が豊富な代償でどうしても「どうすりゃ良いのか分からん」「このアイテム何?」という事があると思います。海外wikiは充実していてgoogle翻訳は優秀でどうにかこうにか自分レベルでも何とかなってますが、英語アレルギーの人に手放しにお勧めはできません。自分もたいがい英語アレルギーですがそれで避けるには本当に勿体無いゲーム。おすすめです。

かなりの良作。

ローグライク風のパズルゲーム。日本語化不可で英語のみ。ただ、ゲームを楽しむ範囲ではほとんど英語を読む必要はない。

一応 RPG 要素有り。ゲームとしては初期のランダム配置以外は全て確定要素なので詰め将棋に近い。難易度はそこそこ高めで、ある程度繰り返しプレイをしないとクリア出来ない程度の難易度。その分、自分の腕前が上がっていくのを実感できるので好印象。

結構アイテム運が絡むのでそれが良くもあり悪くもあるが、許容範囲だと思う。(持っていくアイテムを選べたりするので)

ボリュームも多い。

また、パズルだけに特化したゲーム(初期の配置があらかじめ決まっている)があるのだが、ヒントに関しては少々の英語力が必要かも。

難しそうに見えるが実は単純明快なテンポの良いゲームでした。
操作方法はマウス一個だけでできます。ゲームシステムとしてはダンジョンを探索して敵を探しボスを倒すゲームですが、
他と違うのは敵が動かないこと!パズルゲームのようなダンジョン?ゲーです。興味があるかたはTrailerみてどうぞ!
25ドル払った価値あるんちゃいます?って思ってます。

"Normally, with puzzle games, if it seems too hard then you're generally just doing it wrong. With Desktop Dungeons, it's just too hard." — Kakie, Corsual Live Viewer

I have a confession to make. I'm not proud of it, but I haven't finished Desktop Dungeons. I strive to complete all of the games I review prior to writing, but in this case the cross was too great to bear.

My failure came not through lack of trying — I tried for many, many hours — but from an overwhelming level of difficulty. Not the bad kind of difficulty, where cheap opponents consistently barrage you until you die hurling an overpriced controller against the nearest wall, but the good kind of difficulty, that will see you thinking — really thinking — about every move you make, every time you make it, lest your adventure come to a inconveniently early end.

Fortunately, I appreciate a challenge. Hell, I crave it. But in the end, it turned out that there was more to accomplish, collect and unlock in this roguelike dungeon crawler than I could ever hope to discover in just 2 weeks, and so, I began my review in advance.

WITHOUT FURTHER ADO...
I first saw Desktop Dungeons while watching MANvsGAME; Danny Baranowsky and Grant Kirkhope, who composed the soundtrack, were there alongside one of the core developers, Danny Day.

They discussed many of the basic game concepts; the randomly generated dungeons and roguelike nature, spell-casting warriors, the coming mobile release, the difference between a harpsichord and clavinet and the origins of Granny Kirkanowsky.

Listening in, amidst the constant laughter, I quickly learned that DD has something of a cult following that grew around an alpha build released to the public years back and available free today, which led to it winning the IGF Award Winning for Game Design. Immediately, I downloaded it to take a look.

IN THE BEGINNING
The alpha turned out to be a crude version of the one MAN was playing. It looked very different — the hand-drawn art wasn't present, instead offering a more traditional pixel art style, and the entire progression mechanic was missing, so choosing a dungeon was as simple as selecting a race, class and difficulty.

Though I was watching MAN play a clearly superior version, I still felt entirely engaged playing the alpha due to the 'roguelike' nature of the gameplay. Every dungeon was different, and though my imminent demise was almost always a single click away, the ability to head straight back in, new knowledge in hand, to a completely new dungeon, maintained my interest throughout the entire night.

That's when I made my purchase, gained access to the browser-operated (sans-soundtrack) beta and began to compare.

NEW IS ALWAYS BETTER
After a brief serving of story and a short tutorial explaining the basics I was directed to my very own kingdom, a world map of sorts, comprised mostly of open space and human inhabited houses. After completing a dungeon, more buildings appeared. An elven habitat, a mage tower, a church...

I quickly realised that the original 'choose race, choose class, choose difficulty' menu featured in the alpha had been replaced here with progressive RPG elements via the kingdom, including a huge host of quests, and that unlike the alpha, races and classes here required an unlock before they could be used.

The game continued forward, revealing multiple new features. Gold could be collected from dungeons and kept afterward, and then used to purchase preparation items that could be used in future dungeon attempts, or saved to unlock new buildings in the kingdom.

Eventually, I was introduced to the tavern, which served as a hub allowing access to multiple dungeon types. It was here that the largest difference between the alpha and beta made their appearance — there's more than one dungeon type in the full version. A lot more.

DON'T ♥♥♥♥ OFF THE DEITIES
That's when things started getting tough, and it was at about that time that the full Steam release arrived, this one complete with Granny K's masterpiece soundtrack.

I was happy to learn that the progress I'd made in the beta was saved, and too, that even though I could now play the full release on Steam, I could continue to do so from my browser if I chose. Everything is saved online, so portable gaming is a legitimate option. A good thing, too, as Desktop Dungeons lends itself perfectly to quick gaming when you've only got 10 minutes to spare. Come on mobile version...

Where was I... oh, right. It's hard. Even the normal dungeons are hard. And the hard dungeons are a lot f@&ing harder. God only knows if there are even harder dungeons around the bend, but if there are, you'll likely need God's help to complete them. Well, at least one of the Gods, anyway.

Yes, yes... I know. Terrible segway, yada-yada. Gods are the key to victory in many of the dungeons, yet they're also a leading cause of death. The decision to adopt a deity is usually a hard one — on the one hand, they offer amazing buffs and bonuses that are generally the key to victory, on the other, they'll restrict you in various ways, punishing you severely for whatever they deem misconduct — though mastering their ways is essential.

THIS IS THE GAME THAT NEV-ER ENDS
That's where the other 'game mode' really helps: Puzzles. After unlocking the Explorer's Guild building in your kingdom you'll have access to a series of puzzles - dungeons that aren't generated randomly, but instead, have a single specific solution that you must discover in order to succeed.

They double as great ways to learn more information about the various items, weapons, spells, deities and conversion materials on offer, and though not everyone will need them, they're highly advised if you're having difficulty completing certain quests or dungeons.

And that's everything I know. Almost. I know that of the nine classes I've unlocked there are another nine to go. I know that of the four races I've unlocked there are another... actually I don't know how many more there are. One, at least. I found him once — a Halfling trapped in a dungeon within a dungeon who nicked my last potion— but failed and haven't seen him since. That's a lot of the fun in Desktop Dungeons; every dungeon is different, and you never know what you're going to get. If you like The Binding of Isaac, or Spelunky, or more appropriately, Rogue Legacy, which offers a similar style of 'progressive roguelike' gameplay, then there's a great chance you'll love Desktop Dungeons, too. It's as hard as the others — perhaps even harder in its own way — but if you're not one to shy from a challenge then there's a lot to enjoy.

I met the Devs at GamesCom 2014. Around noon on Friday they sat me down in front of a PC and had me try the game - apparently I did well (I looked at the goblin before attacking it and noticed it had first strike). After a merry but short romp through the introduction dungeon, which ended with a green blob of slime eating my poor adventurer, I went on to explore the rest of the Indie Megabooth. Friday night though, before I went to sleep, I knew there was a bit of unfinished business: I bought the game, and not just because the developers are great guys (but that too).

The game delivers what it promisses: bite sized adventures you can play during a break. The other day I had 15 minutes to spare: 10 of those were used by a berserker clearing a swamp of monsters.
It may look like a simple game, but it has a suprising amound of depth, with many abilities, items and other things that lead to multiple ways to tackle dungeons and may have you adapting your strategy based on what you encounter.
And there is a lot to encounter. Just when you think you have seen all the races, seen all the classes, you find one more. Then you check the journal and see just how much you haven't seen yet (I found it more fun not to check how much I am missing so as not to spoil the pleasure of finding something new).

But how do you play? Simple: you select a dungeon to explore and write an adventuring permit. The permit is the "character creation" process of that dungeon. For example it could say: To [dungeon name], For Generic Adventuring, Race: Human, Class: Warrior, Equipment: starting adventurer's kit. Then you would play the dungeon with a simple lvl 1 human warrior.
As the game progresses you unlock more races, classes and can provide better starting equipment and other bonuses, making each run unique.

So what are you waiting for? Your kingdom needs you! Oh, you need a permit? To: Unnamed Desktop Dungeon Kingdom, For: Kingdom Administration, Race: Human, Class: Gamer. There you go, your permit to play the game.
And yes, the alpha version is available for free to try out :)

I picked this game up not knowing exactly what to expect.

It is part RPG, part roguelike, part math.

It frequently makes me feel a bit dumb.

The problem is that I really, really enjoy playing it.

It's Minesweeper with a theme. A nearly perfectly executed puzzle game which captures in an abstract way the dungeon crawling roguelikes which have sprung up like kobolds in the indie market. You can finish a dungeon in five minutes if you're the impatient sort or if like me you like to mull over optimal moves, a board might take fifteen minutes or so. There is a light and humorous background story to give the puzzles a campaign-like structure but War and Peace it ain't. Which isn't a problem at all as this is the type of game which you'll load up when you have some random time to kill. You will unlock various ways to customize each dungeon, such as starting equipment, races, classes, gods, etc. The graphics are cute, the gameplay is tight, the music is not annoying. If you like puzzle games and think you would enjoy a deconstruction of a dungeon roguelike, then buy this game. It is practically flawless.

If you're reading this, you're either wondering whether you should get this game, or you already own it but like to froth at the mouth as you experience opinions that don't match your own. I understand.

Desktop Dungeons is a somewhat randomized puzzle game cleverly disguised as a roguelite rpg. It's also incredibly brutal. That aside (or possibly because of it), I found the game enjoyable in that "bring out your inner masochistic rage junkie" kinda way. A single mistake can cost you the level, & sometimes you don't find out until 10 minutes later. One time my mouse was on the fritz & occassionally registered two clicks from one press. It rendered this game unplayable. However, overall it was a positive entertainment experience, in that I preferred it over staring at a wall.

So why is this review in the "not recommended" section? I don't find the quality of entertainment worth the price tag. There are plenty of other games out there that can offer a similar playstyle, are more immersive, have greater replayability, & cost a fraction of what I paid for Desktop Dungeons. While this is a decently good game, it's not $15-good. Its inflated cost is also reflected in its soundtrack- an arbitrary $10 for something that many games include for free. Wait for a sale, preferably at least 30% off, hopefully more.

I agonized for days over buying this because I just wasn't sure it'd be fun. It is fun, and the tutorials are very helpful.

The big appeal for me was, easy in, easy out, and skirmishes finished in around under hour. I just can't commit to days of playing games that are skirmish-like in nature.

I'm looking forward to playing this quite a bit.

I guess I was expecting more RPG and less Strategy because this game seemed to me to be too difficult to be fun.

It starts out easy, you have to clear single-screen 'dungeons' that are tough but defeatable. By the time I had finished the tutorials (and even some of those I had to cheat and look for solutions on youtube) that was the end of any successful dungeon clearing that I was able to do.

Game in a nutshell is: The playfield is dark except where your character begins. You always begin at level 1 but can choose your race/class and optionally pay some ingame gold for starting equipment (example: a shield that reduces all damage by 2). You are placed on the screen and have to move around uncovering the darkened squares and ultimately defeat the level 10 boss of the dungeon. Sounds fun right?

The only way to heal yourself and your mana (used for skills found as you explore the dungeon) are potions or uncovering darkened dungeon squares. Both are in limited supply.

The 'casual' rating of this game is true in the time required to play sense, but if you don't exploit every single weakness of every enemy, and if you don't kill higher level enemies for the bonus exp (which is harder than it sounds, again, very limited healing) you have no chance of killing the level 10 boss monster.

Because every move counted so much, and because ultimately it takes a lot of moves to clear a dungeon, I found myself getting frustrated at how incapable I found myself of clearing a dungeon. I'd get to level 8 or 9 and simply not be able to kill enough enemies at that point without dying, to get to level 10 or have enough of a stockpile of potions for the final boss of each dungeon.

So, instead of surely dying to the higher level boss, I would exit the dungeon, able to keep whatever gold I found in there and selling off the potions for 50-60 gold, take away 10-15 it costs for the items you bring with you. At that point I was looking at minimum 500 gold upgrades to unlock anything more fun about the game, and I decided to uninstall and give up on the game because there was no other difficulty setting.

If that kinda game sounds fun more power to you but I was looking for a much more casual game, as in not an intense experience. I wanted to shut my brain off for a bit but this took all of my concentration and was, for me, not a fun game to play in hindsight.
