Above is my early look into the Dungeoning. It was recorded before it was on Steam, but the info should still be pretty accurate.

The dungeoning features rock hard difficulty, fluid feeling controls, and simple graphics. This is one of my personal favorite rogue-like/lite games. I love how easy it is to get into, but difficult to master. I've already finished the game once, and currently working on game+.

Overall it's a fun light romp, that could have you coming back for more.

Positives:
- Easy to understand mechanics
- Fluid feeling controls
- Will challenge the player
- Multiple "Game+" for replay

Negatives:
- Might be too simple looking for some
- Might be too hard for some
- Could use more options and features

This is Dark Souls through a Legend of Dungeon filter. Deep combat, tight controls, beutifully-colorful pixel art with dynamic lighting, and item-borne lore. A roguelike whose charming aesthetic does not come off as gimmicky as many others of its ilk. The difficulty is relentless but fair, and the music and sound effects are expectedly old-school and immersive. If you enjoy Risk of Rain and Legend of Dungeon, but wish they were more "Souls-y", The Dungeoning should already be in your library.

The Dungeoning is pixely. It is brutal. There doesn't appear to be any after death progression like in Rogue Legacy, however this game doesn't really need a feature like that.

The nostalgia is definitely there. The gameplay too. Played this on a 360 with the fancy dpad, works very well.

Very fun game! But Needs work.

So far i've only done one run and it was a blast, very unforgiving but if you have the instinct to explore you will be fine. If you're a fan of some hardcore platformers and the Souls series, you'll find something to like here. I hope the developer sticks with the project long enough for maybe a graphical upgrade, and maybe souls style multiplayer? Exploring a dungeon and seeing enemy players challenging you for your weapons/gold would be exciting.

Improvements that the game needs

-Smoother UI,
The menu system feels very dated, I'm not sure if this was on purpose but I thought it was just frustrating. there's not even a way to use your cursor when playing with a keyboard.

-Proper Controller Support
The game advertises controller support but this does not seem to be the case, the game would crash if I even moved my anaglog stick which seems to be a problem many players are having.


To the developer I hope you stick with the game and make it the best it can possibly be. You're on to something special here.
