    Rather, Deep Dungeons of Doom takes the meth dealer's route to revenue generation: the first taste is always free. But you'll come crawling back with open purse strings when you reach the end of your dose. Consider the free download a lengthy trial period. But don't worry, it's got enough meat to sink three bucks worth of teeth into.

    Deep Dungeons of Doom is more than just a goofy title. It's also a surprisingly great distillation of action RPG elements.

    Deep Dungeons of Doom is an extremely bright take on the RPG with an intuitive timing-based battle system and gorgeous pixel-art visuals.

    Pacey and immediate, Deep Dungeons of Doom offers no-frills, retro-themed fantasy fun. More revives and fewer IAP prompts would have been nice, though.

    A great experience that tries to bring back the classic, dice-based rol games. It's a long and solid game that won't disappoint its audience.

    If Deep Dungeons of Doom ultimately feels a tiny bit hollow, this may in part be due to its dazzling presentation.

    Each dungeon has its own theme and unique enemies, but once you learn the enemy patterns there is little incentive to go back through one you've already completed. Even the infinite dungeon recycles enemies from the rest of the game, making Deep Dungeons of Doom a fleeting but fun mobile adventure.

    Really beautiful little game. The art alone is reason enough to play this game, and it's the reason I keep coming back to it. That combined with a steep learning curve that forces you to improve as a player and invest time into the game makes this the first mobile game that hasn't felt like time wasting. x Expand

    This game looks lovely and plays lovely. It's also super hard but always feels fair. There's a paywall 5 dungeons in which gives you plenty of content if you're a free player but also makes it feel properly worth it if/when you buy the dungeon expansion Expand

    Great dungeon romp, the animations are brilliant too. Some of the end level bosses are incredibly challenging, though! Great fun, the best RPG I've got on my iPhone. Recommended! Expand

    This is reminiscent in play style and graphics to a variety of 70's era arcade games (defeat the monster, loot, upgrade if possible, enter the next room of the dungeon) The controls are basic but a bit twitchy. If your arm is in a cast or you have nerve damage, you probably won't get very far. It seems to be designed for young caffeinated people, which admittedly is probably their intended target audience. For us older gamers it would be nice to have a way to slow down the game play. Overall it has its charm Expand
