A cheap and cheesy parody of Golden Axe that is neither funny nor fun to play.

Great little side scrolling brawler with a deceivingly simple deep combat system for combos and area control.
Each character has their own move sets and the artwork is well done.
Game is a little short but it has some decent replayability with friends.
The writing is funny and gave me a couple good laughs.
If you want a good cheap brawler reminisant of Golden Axe or even Castle Crashers give Dungeons: The Eye of Draconus a try.

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.

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.

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.
