  • Summary: A theme park is a magical place reserved only for children, right? Wrong. DEAD wrong. Dungeonland redefines the idea of having "fun" in a fantasy theme park as it attempts to entrap your heroes and let them line up for their demise. Playing as the Rogue, the Warrior, or the Mage, heroes will adventure in a classic co-op dungeon crawl, with a sinister twist: three players can play as the daring heroes, while a fourth takes on the role of Dungeonland's Game Master, using a pool of traps and monsters to annihilate their unwelcome guests! Featuring hero customization, looting and dozens of items, Dungeonland is an amoral, atypical take on asymmetric gameplay. Expand

    Despite these minor criticisms, the game is brilliant. Having played it both with friends and alone, it is obvious that this game is -supposed- to be played with friends. When playing alone, it feels a bit repetitive, but when you add two friends screaming commands in your ear and a third one laughing manically as he plots your demise, this game is pure candy. If you enjoy playing this kind of game with friends, you will love Dungeonland. If you are a friendless loner, however, you might want to give it a miss.

    Despite a few issues I have with the game, most notably the idea of grinding a bit too often early on, this game is a steal at $9.99. If you see it on a sale and remotely enjoy ARPGs, you need to pick this up immediately.

    Dungeonland does not try to go beyond its limits, rather it shows that true multiplayer with friends it’s as enjoyable as ever. Glitches and poor quantity apart, in the end it manages to keep its dignity.

    Dungeonland is ultimately pointless when it comes down to it. Yet it is the good kind of pointless, the kind that still produces entertainment with friends and fills a void. Dungeonland knows it does not amount to much, in fact it revels in it, wilfully mocking itself throughout.

    The game’s testers deserve having their butts kicked more than the creatures of Dungeonland. [CD-Action 04/2013, p.81]

    Not a particularly tedious action game with hack 'n' slash principles will seize you with its randomly-generated locations, wit, challenge and unusual low price. Afterwards, however, the game will disappoint you with its mechanics and ton of bugs.

    Dungeonland could have done with a good couple more months in the oven.

    Love this game. This is one of the best top down multiplayer games I have ever played. It requires you to really use teamwork to be successful and there are tons of customization for your characters. There's a great feeling of accomplishment when you and your friends make it through all three stages of an amusement park, collecting mad gold and buying tons of items for your character. Has great RPG elements and tons of fun combinations of elements to kill the oncoming waves with. If you like multiplayer games and have ever been a fan of top down RPG's, then this is the game for you. Expand

    One of the best multiplayer co-op couch and online experiences I've had in a while, it's totally 100% worth it! The feeling you have playing with your friends, coordinating in order to complete the painfully difficult levels of the game is so awesome! Yeah, Dungeonland is HARD, so hard in fact the "easy" mode is called HARD, you gonna die. a lot. But in the same way Demon's Souls could manage death really well and making you want to play until you finished everything, dungeonland manages the same thing, but this time with real coop, local or online, and the game is MORE fun when you put a 4th player as the dungeon maestro who controls everything and tries to kill you and your friends in the best Tabletop RPG Master simulator ever, hahahahahah

    Go buy it, now!

    This is one of the most fun and challenging games Iv played in years.The game is abound an evil Dungeon Master who runs an amusement park for heros. The developers advertised it a silly and fun multiplier experience and that is exactly what you get. I would go so far as to call this the Mario Party of PC games. That being said, just like Mario Party you are not going to have even half as much fun playing this single player as you would playing with friends. Its clear this game was designed for multiplier and the single player is just a tacked on feature.

    The difficulty of this game is borderlines Hotline Miami level. You take a TON of damage if you get hit, and you die extremely fast. Even on very easy mode. If you do not like hard videogames this is one to avoid. That being said the game has a high skill ceiling and is extremely satisfying to play. Especially when you and your friends all work together and combo ability's to take down the extremely difficult boss monsters. If you are looking for an Epic Narrative with Character growth and a massive RPG world to explore your going to be extremely disappointed because none of that was advertised to began with. The story is extremely bland but its forgivable because of the nature of this game. To continue the Mario Party analogy, No one plays Mario Party for the story. They play it to have fun with friends and occasionally screw them over. The game runs flawlessly on Max settings my 4 year old Laptop though I did experience a few non game breaking bugs, stuff like monsters occasionally running into walls, or spawning but not attacking. But these bugs were rare and not that big an issue. Overall 9/10. -1 for bugs and single player.

    When looking at Dungeonland, you can say it may be a bit buggy
    and not very deep with it’s game mechanics. But the multiplayer experience is one of a kind. Playing online or locally offline is so much fun that it outweighs a lot of the negative aspects of the game. It looks gorgeous, the inside jokes are funny and the gameplay is very fun. Sadly Paradox has the same problem with this as it had with the Magicka launch, it is quite buggy and you will have to roll the dice when buying this when hoping to play this without any problems.

    It's a decent game for 10$. I bought it on Steam (pre-order) coz the game-play looked really smooth and appealing. But apparently the game has been released with a handful of bugs and optimization issues. There is definitely going to be patches in the upcoming days, so I think that will fix the graphical issues with all the lag. And in fact there has already been a patch which addresses these very performance issues. So there ya go!
    Anyways, the game is quite fun. So far I've understood one thing - Play the DM mode online/offline to earn gold coins, it's much easier as compared to earning coins via adventure mode.
    Overall the game is fun, could have more maps in the future.
    8/10, thanks.

    An ok game where you lead a few characters thru some messy and chaotic battles vs hordes of mobs. The artwork is amazing, there is lots of funny stuff. It's just that the gameplay is rather shallow and repetitive. Probably it's good for kids. Expand

    MUltiplayer only. So unless you know several other people who want to play the same game, this is a total waste of time. Playing with strangers is terrible. Abusive 9 year olds already all over the place (no change there then) A buggy waste of time and the reason why many people over the age of 30 hate multiplayer., If I wanted to spend my time getting abused by idiots and children I'd go and stand outside my local Aldi with a Waitrose bag on my shoulder. Buggy, unfinished unfocussed mess - multiplayer only just makes it a whole heap worse. Expand
