    Stepchild of a successful series, Dungeon Hunter 3 fails to justify in-app puchases and seems to be annoying as well.

    Dungeon Hunter 2 was my absolute favorite game on my phone, being very much like the mobile version of Diablo. Dungeon Hunter 3 is absolutelyDungeon Hunter 2 was my absolute favorite game on my phone, being very much like the mobile version of Diablo. Dungeon Hunter 3 is absolutely terrible.
    Many games have adopted the practice of in app purchases, but DH3 has fundamentally changed the game to revolve around them. You are put in an arena, you kill some monsters, go to another arena, kill some monsters, and so forth forever. There are no item drops at all, only money. You have to buy all your gear. You can also upgrade, which prevents you from using the item while the item upgrade takes several hours in real time. Maybe because they want you to buy two sets of gear or something like that. There is no plot and no dungeons and no quests. When you finish an arena you see this little animation with a cauldron of gold coins showering coins around the screen. It looks EXACTLY like one of the banner adverts for online casinos you frequently see on the internet. Flashing lights. Shiny things. Keep gambling! That is the psychology behind this game. It is boring beyond words.

    No, no, no Gameloft! That's not the way! You had it with DH2 why did you called this spin-off a "DH3"?! That's not a slasher-RPG... that'sNo, no, no Gameloft! That's not the way! You had it with DH2 why did you called this spin-off a "DH3"?! That's not a slasher-RPG... that's heavily monetized arena battles. Hmm...
    Oh ok. Let's try it.. [After a week] I had a really hard time in playing this up until I've payed 1.5EUR for some supportive cash. They it became manageable but still tedious to perform tiring missions (tough they add some replay ability) over and over again... Rather a disappointment but with good mechanic, animations and graphics.

    1. Cannot find any DH3 gems except the few that had to be used during mandatory tutorial. A few popped up during the game but have no idea1. Cannot find any DH3 gems except the few that had to be used during mandatory tutorial. A few popped up during the game but have no idea where they came from? Should there be gems to find? all the screen shots show thousands of gems.

    2. Cannot redeem collections rewards even though screen implies it should be an option. Pressing Redeem button makes a clink sound but nothing else?

    3. Cannot find any detailed instructions or references anywhere, including gameloft website. Plenty of cheat sites, not what I am looking for.

    4. Made it to about level 25 with a Warlord and did some upgrades. Also had second character, Astomancer, at about level 13. While waiting for the upgrades, that is, not using ipad2, pushes prompted the upgrades where complete and to come try them out. Well the program wouldn't open, it would get to the startup cover screen with the little circle turning in the bottom right corner then closed. After several attempts, I turned ipad2 off, restarted ipad2 and DH3. DH3 started first character over, my level 25 character gone. Could not stop the mandatory tutorial so was forced to make new character. Game remembered my level 26, lost all upgrades, kept the gems and added new ones from mandatory tutorial except for the ones needed during the key purchase to 10, which the second attempt programmed into the tutorial cancelled the purchase. Lost all of the first Warlords completed arenas and their completed missions. WHAT?

    I realize this DH3 is a new game, are the levels limited unless gamers purchase something? if so, how much does it cost and at what level?

    Are there other websites, socials, game sites that review and ID game flaws that could be more helpful?
