This might've been the best game I played this year. Top quality voice acting and hilarious story, easy to learn but hard to master combat system that rewards you for learning new tricks and the boss fights that might as well been from Dark Souls. Online mode works perfectly, no issues with connection. I haven't encountered one glitch or bug. Good job guys.

Overall if you like great games or Holocaust you will definitely enjoy this gem. I give it a 9.9/10

Poor hit detection, overly simplistic, brainless combat, poop and gay jokes, and a Monty Python reference that the game pats itself on the back for. Just play Castle Crashers and have some actual fun. I spent 99 cents on this and wished I got a can of Arizona Fruit Punch instead.

Exposition, Concurrence and Summation
I'll start by saying that I actually like this game. It is simultaneously total trash.

Dungeons: The Eye of Draconis is a 3 player beat 'em up in the vein of the 16 bit era most closely emulating a satirical version of Golden Axe.

The reason I like this game is that its very well animated. It controls just how you expect and things die in a satisfying way when you kill them. There are boss battles. There is even a feint amount of variety in the attacks. You have 3 basic classes. The big guy with a sword. The ranged wizard (who can summon a ♥♥♥♥ing chicken that breathes fire for obvious reasons) and the slightly more speedy Valkyrie.

The bad parts are the voice acting ITS ♥♥♥♥ING ATROCIOUS. The overall 'satire' of the so called comedic touches are bland, unfunny, probably offensive to someone but not in the truthful observational kind of offensiveness. Its just regular offensive. I should reiterate that its offensive in that it affronted me in my ability to enjoy the game rather than some '#triggered' nonsense.

I actually found myself enjoying the game in a sort of meditative way whilst listening to music (completely drowning out the game sound) smacking dudes or Orcs with beer hats on or what have you. See its funny, Orcs drinking beer. When you allow the sounds of the game to be heard it induces uncontrollable cringing. Why did no one stop them during VO? --you'll ask yourself.

THE GIST
I want to give the people that made this game another chance because it seems like they could make a good game but whatever reason, they chose not to embark on such an endeavor.

worth 2 dollars- a weird and unfinished ode to 80's pop culture drawing strongly on cheap laughs, mostly on gay jokes, I guess.2/10. short, not very funny and worst of all, with very bad hit detection, but it doesn't really matter, since you can continue indefinetely. And lets not forget references that stopped being relevant 20 years ago- seriously, Smurfs as a communist society? That was edgy in '89. Still, not completely worthless, just not good.

A really mediocre beat-em up with really bad dialogues.

Pros:
- three characters
- different stages
- chickens breathing fire

Cons:
- it looks as if it was not finished
- short
- graphics are kind of ugly
- no Demo of this game on Steam

There are many better beat-em ups here and there, go play them instead.

My friend and I were unable to get the multiplayer to work in this. As far as the game itself, the gameplay was bad, the dialogue was good, but the voice acting was bad. I requested a refund for this game.

This game has some of the least likeable characters I have ever seen. Only reason I bothered to beat it was that while playing co-op you have infinite retries. What idiot kickstarted this?

Wow, that's a short game. Under an hour to finish. That's more or less okay-ish if the enemies weren't that repetitive and easy to defeat. The bosses are well designed and story is surely funny, just there's not really a lot of meat on the bones of this game.

It feels like Golden Axe on a budget, but that's not a bad thing at all since it feels like Golden Axe ;) The camera could be more up close to the action and the game really needs more and more challenging normal enemies, but overall it's a fun ride for the money. Maybe wait for a sale as the game is really nothing more than an hour of gameplay.

Oh Dungeons, what will we do with you? You tried so hard and failed so, so badly that I almost just feel sorry for you. Your poor hit detection and unsatisfying combat left me bored and frustrated, your looks shuffled between blurry sprites to clashing art styles, and your dialog...I can barely begin to describe what an atrocity it is.

You obviously were inspired by classic beat-em-ups like Golden Axe, but you miss the mark almost entirely by how week and clumsy your combat ultimately is. I guess it never occurred to you to balance enemies for different player numbers either, which I guess becomes a moot point when the online multiplayer is all but entirely broken anyway.

But back to the writing, I have to wonder if you ever made it out of fifth grade. It's almost like you were attempting to write the most unprecedentedly dumb and juvenile lines ever seen in a game, ranging from cringe worthy to being downright in poor taste (that mission where you fight a pair of sex obsessed homosexuals? seriously?). Maybe next time you could spring for actual voice actors too instead of a bunch of your friends recording in your mom's basement.

I had high hopes for you, Dungeons, but almost as if in anticipation of this you came out of the gate extravagantly putting your worst foot forward before proceeding to become almost intolerably bad the longer I spent with you. I'm sorry, Dungeons, this isn't going to work. I regret spending the hour I did with you, and you won't be hearing from me again when you release your sequel. Good day and good bye.

This game has everything you could want from a brawler. It has quirky humor mixed with blood and guts. At times the difficulty is near Battletoads, which I feel is a great thing. Challenge accepted for accepting my money Sucker Free Games. The best thing about Dungeons is that it's 3 player. So once I make 2 friends all of us can enjoy this epic adventure. I'm a pretty lonely guy and most of the time I don't post reviews because I'm also very shy but I was compelled to post a review of this game. Dungeons: The Eye of Draconus brought back childhood memories of visiting my cousins and playing Double Dragon with them. It was one of the only times I got to play videos games with other people. Sure I play games online with people but it's easy for people to accept you if they don't have to see you. Rose is cool but my favorite is Gleobryn and his awesome super wicked cool chicken.

This game is such a throwback to the old days of Golden Axe. Armed with relentless button mashing and a good buddy we pulverized everything in our wake. The humor is pretty tongue in cheek and the animations were pretty fluid for a brawler.

Sega fans rejoice! This is right up there with Streets of Rage and Golden Axe for local co-op brawler destruction. Smashing baby kobolds while riding a mutant snail doesn’t get much better than this. With throwback 16-bit graphics like the retro games we love, Dungeons: The Eye of Draconus puts forth a solid challenge without being annoyingly difficult. Grab two friends, some drinks , and controllers if you got ‘em and prepare to bash everything into a bloody pulp.

Welp, I should have watched a gameplay video first on YouTube. The gameplay is too simplistic even for a beat 'em up; the stages alternate between "bland" and "ugly"; the voice acting is INCREDIBLY annoying; and the "comedy" is so dumb even fans of Friedberg and Seltzer movies will look down on it.
What a terrible waste of time and money.

This game is awesome. I thoroughly enjoyed playing it. It is very funny and I found it is the sort of game you can just play unlike other games where you have to be in the right state of mind. I would rate it 5/5 and would recommend anyone to play it.
