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.

Reading the reviews which give this game a thumbs up, it seemed like it would be right up my alley. Randomly generated dungeon? Difficult but fair gameplay? Inspiration from the 'Souls' series? A liking to Legend of Dungeon? Take my money!

But don't let any of these fool you. What you get is an overpriced, bare-bones, sleep-inducing and repetitive game. This really needs to be labeled as Early Access because there's nothing to this game for the price-tag. I'm sure the developer has plenty more to add in the future but as of the time of this review, this game has nothing to keep you interested for more than 3 hours, max.

The dungeon itself is very uninspired. The weapons all function exactly the same. Every sword, every bow, every staff... exactly the same. You cannot sell nor even DROP any of your weapons, so prepare to be battling with scrolling through your weapons the whole way through. There's no armor drops, so zero customization there, and the stats are boring and should probably just automatically upgrade instead of making you pause the game, go into your menu, and add one point into a stat which doesn't make you feel any cooler, stronger, or tougher.

There is some enemy variety, but it takes way too long before you encounter the next new mob. A lot of the mobs, especially early on, are too boring to fight. Unless you think fighting a bunch of plants that can't move or attack is fun.

This game needs a lot more time to be fleshed out, and then it might be a decent amount of fun. Right now, however, I would recommend you save your hard-earned money.

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.
