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.

I quite liked playing through Dungeons, but was very disappointed when I came to the end. It just sort of stopped with no warning and a spiel for the sequel, which I'm guessing is not very likely to be released.

As others have said, it's a side-scrolling beat-em-up with adolescent humour and terrible voice overs. But I enjoyed it. It was fun and most of the humour was recognisable from popular (and no-so-popular) culture.

I haven't played multiplayer, but I can see that it would be more fun that way. It's just a shame about the non-ending.

You get an achievement for starting the game. Funny/tragic thing is, if you can actually get into the game without it getting stuck or crashing, that really is an achievement to be proud of! Can't say anything about the gameplay really, can't get seem to get that far. Tried with couple of different machines. If this would cost 0.0001 cents, it would still be too much, since you get, well, nothing.

Not much to say besides don't buy this. The game mentions playing like other classics such as old TMNT games and other beat-em-ups, but this is nothing like those. There are 3 total characters. The steam page mentions variety of gameplay and attacks. Both melee characters have swipes in different directions, but that is the extent of the "varied" combat. Each character also gets a special that sporadically fills up and sometimes isn't very helpful. The game is super repetitive. You fight the same 3 guys: kobolds, orks, and something else I can't remember, all of which are modeled similarly, in countless waves while you mash the single attack button endlessly.

The game tries too hard be funny, but it completely fails. Poor dialogue, bare-bone story. It is also super short at around an hour, which I can't decide if it's a blessing or a curse, considering how the game plays. There is nothing in the environment to use or manipulate. Also the hit detection and ability to judge the same level plane of enemies is terrible, meaning you miss countlessly on bosses. Sometimes the attacking and buttons are finnicky. There is no leveling or character customization, just replaying using the same boring attacks on the same boring enemies, with terrible graphics to boot. Literally get any other beat-em-up out there instead and you'll be doing yourself a favor. 4/10.

It's 2 player co-op beat-em-up, which is hard to come by, and the comedy and music is pretty good. The gameplay and game-length both leave lots to be desired though. Barely giving this game a "Yes" only because there aren't many local co-op options.

This might have been an OK game 20 years ago but it's not 20 years ago. The voice acting is horrible, the combat is overly simplistic and repetitive, and the controls are terrible. This plays a lot like Golden Axe but again this isn't 1990 so there's no excuse for making a game that is worse than the game it's obviously influenced by.

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.

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.

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 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.

Dungeons: The Eye of Draconus has managed to capture the fun and challenge of my favorite classic genres. The combat and enemies are amusing and varied enough to keep the experience fresh and to keep me moving forward. You'll battle through some gorgeous environments with creative setpiece confrontations scattered throughout. The music is cool and exciting and the animations and sprite art are great eye candy. Eye candy with a joke printed on the wrapper. The characters each have their own distinguished playstyle and it's an experience that benefits greatly from having a friend or two to fight alongside.

Maybe it's just where I am in my own life, but I felt embarassed when I was playing this. Everything about the game is overly stereotyped and over sexualized like some pre-pubescent fantasy of some sort. Honestly, I couldnt stick with the game past the initial part I played through. It was just to difficult to accept this as the way any game is presented these days. It wasnt funny or cute or anything else that might redeem it. It was just flat out crass, pure and simple.
While I dont think less of others for enjoying this game, I couldnt justify continuing when I have so many better beat em ups in my game library, that I dont feel demean me when I'm playing them.

If you remember Golden Axe, then it is enough to say that Dungeons: The Eye of Draconus is a clone of that game with over the top violence and hit&miss humor. If you have not, it is a 2D fantasy brawler in which you control a character and slaughter waves of enemies before moving on to next stage and repeating this activity. It can be played in single player or local co-op (not sure if online co-op is available), up to three players, which is probably the most enjoyable way.

What this game has, and Golden Axe did not, is lots and lots of blood and nerdy humour type jokes (wacky voice acting / fighter named Bolax / mage's special attack summons a giant fire-breathing chicken mount / orc frat boys / gay zombies / etc.), which may or may not work for you.

The game is quite challenging, although you get unlimited continues (at least on normal difficulty), so the challenge lies mostly in getting the achievements. I died a lot, and only got 2 of 12 in the end. Curiously, the first boss was the hardest for me.

Note that The Eye of Draconus game is approximately 1 hour in length, so getting it at a discount or in a bundle is about the only way to get your money's worth. Might be worth a playthrough, if you enjoy slaughtering kobold children.

I would give this game a neutral rating, if I could, but since Steam only allows me to reommend the game or not, I am going with not - because it is too short for its normal price.

Dungeons: The Eye of Draconus (or D:TED for short) is a retro-inspired hack & slash that draws inspiration from Golden Axe, 90s Konami beatemups, and even a little Battletoads (at least the most infamous part). Boasting three playable characters, a multitude of adversaries to slay, and a lot of humor, does D:TED deliver?

Well.....You saw the big fat thumbs down didn't you?

First off let me start by saying I become a real jerk when it comes to reviewing beatemups, hack & slashers, and similar belt-scrolling games. Some children were raised by wolves, I was raised by arcade machines. I know what to expect out of the genre and I hate it when certain essential elements aren't properly handled.

D:TED clocks in at less than an hour, potentially less than 45 minutes if cut-scenes are skipped. This is a good length for an arcade-styled beatemup. This isn't supposed to be Castle Crashers where there are dozens of stages, experience points, and tons of weapons that are +1 here and -1 there. A fair number of bosses have to be contended with, and they require different strategies in order for the player to succeed. Enemy variety is also pretty solid, which is rare for the genre and always welcome.

The three playable characters consist of a barely-clothed drunk who angers easily, a thief(harlot?) who swings daggers, and the cleric that throws fireballs and summons a fire-breathing chicken. I didn't know clerics could do that, but I guess it depends on what God they're trying to convince everyone to worship. Whatever the case, this line-up is diverse enough to satisfy any play-style.

But now we have to get to the main failing of D:TED. The complete lack of proper mechanics. The life-blood of the beatemup (or any game for that matter) is in the mechanics. It's a catch-all term that accounts for all the rules the game has to follow. Mechanics could be what constitutes the player doing or taking damage, the height and arc of the jump, or determining whether a sword that is swung at two monsters registers a hit on one or both. When the mechanics are faulty, the entire game suffers, and all the good decisions and intriguing game-design in the world can't save it.

Basically, all deadly objects don't even have to touch the player to do damage. I've been hit by everything from flying kobold toddlers to rainbow hearts, even though on-screen they weren't even close. I've killed orks despite the blades of my daggers missing them by several feet. A flying boss takes far longer than it should due to constant misses. These occurences add up and the game ceases to be enjoyable. If you're going to play this game I recommend the Cleric. Thanks to his projectiles I don't have to deal with the crapshoot that is the melee-based combat.

D:TED has promise, good ideas, and its own unique story and characters, but the execution simply isn't there. I couldn't get any enjoyment out of the game. YMMV

THis game looked promising from the start, but after the first level you start to get bored very quickly.
It is repetitive. The jokes are forced, and the references to the classics dont go much further than you noticing "ah, they took that from that game"
It is also WAAAAAAAY too short, and promising more content later doesnt change that, because what i have seen so far is so bad i dont want more.
Also, it has multiple difficulty settings, but since you have unlimited continues, that doesnt change a thing.

Don't buy this, even in discount. This isnt even good enough to be a free flash game.

I had a rocky start with Dungeons: Eye of Draconus. First the game's activation key didn't work right, then I went to seek help on the Steam page, and it didn't exist. When, a few days later, I finally got the game installed and booted up, I played for about 30 minutes before the game crashed during the second stage boss battle.

Needless to say, I was not smitten with my first interactions with Eye of Draconus. I'll tell you my first impressions before I go any further. It immediately felt repetitive, the comedy felt forced, and playing as a single player in a game meant for three was *terrible*. The only saving grace is that you can keep continuing when you run out of lives, akin to the old arcade games like Golden Axe and TMNT (which is what this game reminds me so much of). It can be very challenging at times, which isn't a bad thing.

The game doesn't list online coop as available on its page currently, but it is clearly available as an option in the menus. I gave this game another try later on as a local coop (Two controllers) and it was a far less painful experience. It still wasn't great. The game plays better with more players, as I'm sure was intended. I also had problems with the sound in the game. It needs normalization... it was too loud when I booted up the game so I lowered it to about 40%. At that mark, the player's speech was a 2/10, music a 4/10, sound effects 6/10 and cutscenes 8/10 (Sound level). I definitely think some adjustment to the sound is in order.

I really tried to like Dungeons: Eye of Draconus. I was a big fan of the games that it pays homage to, but I felt it just wasn't what it could have been. As mentioned previously, I feel like it really tried too hard on the humor, the graphics had some strange discrepancies (Rose was skinny in the hand-drawn images and a muscular amazon woman when you play her in-game?!), the music was alright when you could hear it, the gameplay was extremely repetitive (and I *love* Dynasty Warriors), and in general I just don't feel like it brings anything original (gameplay-wise) to the table. Except a chubby Barbarian in a speedo. That's genuinely terrifying.

I know that developers go through alot of work to create games for us, and I'm not discounting that. As a friend told me, not every game is for every person. Unfortunately, as bad as I feel for submitting a negative review, this one just wasn't for me. Sorry SuckerFree.
