  • Summary: Dungeon Hearts could best be described as a blend of the ever-escalating pace of Canabalt, the puzzle/action hybrid style of Puzzle Quest, and the nostalgia of old-school Japanese RPG's such as Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior. A brave party of adventurers dashes quickly from battle toDungeon Hearts could best be described as a blend of the ever-escalating pace of Canabalt, the puzzle/action hybrid style of Puzzle Quest, and the nostalgia of old-school Japanese RPG's such as Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior. A brave party of adventurers dashes quickly from battle to battle, using a match-3 puzzle system to defeat their opponents. Mastering the balance between offense and defense is key. Between each battle, the player must quickly level up the warriors, as each encounter is more difficult than the last. As the party wades through wave after wave of enemies, they must adapt to the twists and turns thrown at them as the gameplay evolves. If they can survive long enough, they may encounter the Dark One himself! Collapse

    For such a simplistic game, I’m amazed at how deep it can be.

    A fast-paced puzzle game that manages to put a new twist on match-3 gameplay.

    Dungeon Hearts is a perfectly fun puzzle mash-up that is marred by inconsistent difficulty and lack of a narrative. While the actual combat is fun, it's a shame that players are forced to start over every time the game ends. Even with its problems, there are enough good ideas here to make it worth the low retail price.

    Long story short, Dungeon Hearts is a viciously difficult match-three puzzle game that loosely resembles RPG battle mechanics. And while it hints at other RPG elements such as questing, leveling up, and story progression, it does not truly offer them in any real way.

    Whether you are a fan of fast-paced, challenging puzzle games or an old-school RPG fan, Dungeon Hearts' charm will rub off on you. And if you are a fan of both of those things, you won't even mind its shortcomings, in time.

    As it stands, the Steam copy of Dungeon Hearts fails to fulfil its potential. It's visually charming if a bit bland, and the core mechanics are a solid base for what should be an enjoyable game, but it ends up being little more than a decent distraction.

    Despite all the hints of the RPG genre, Dungeon Hearts is a typical match-3 puzzle.

Overall a nice game to relax from big titles. Expand

    This game flew under the radar, it seems, and it's probably best that it did.

It's got ham-handed gameplay that could've been better designed. The design of the game looks great, but it seems they focused more on that then on the balancing issues. I just can't find myself deliberately losing all the time to rack up XP in order to justify playing this game for hours on end. I gave it 3 for the aesthetics, but I would've given it a higher score if the gameplay wasn't so teeth-grinding on the first mini-boss. I got as far as the second mini-boss once. Expand

Unfortunately tablet controls haven't translated well to the mouse world and all that's left is a bland and frustrating colour matching game.

    I can't think of any reason - given that you're sitting in front of a PC - why you'd be playing Dungeon Hearts instead of something else.
