    Those on the lookout for a simple pick up and play dungeon crawler on your iphone should give Catacombs a try.

    While Catacombs failed to keep my attention for any more longer than an hour due to its repetitive nature throughout its levels, for its low price and addictive elements it's definitely, in my opinion, worth a look.

    Catacombs mixes classic hack 'n' slash gameplay with twin-stick shooter mechanics to pleasant effect, but it lacks the depth and variety necessary to fight its way to the top.

    As a dual-stick shooter, Catacombs fails because it's not frantic enough. As an action game, it fails because the combat isn't very interesting. As an RPG, it fails because it's not deep enough. As an adventure and a game of exploration, it fails because there's no incentive to progress and nothing new to discover as you go.

    This Gauntlet-style romp through undead-filled catacombs reeks of dull repetition.
