  • Summary: Cladun is a retro style dungeon crawler game. Players can create their own main character from scratch using a graphics editor and the dungeons that you will be adventuring in are randomly created for infinite replay value. You can even explore the dungeons with your friends, using the ad-hoc feature of the PSP. Expand

  1. Cladun gives you more for your $20 than many games give you for $60 and does so in such an endearing fashion that you won't want to put it down. It absolutely should not be missed.

    All in all, Cladun is a fantastic game that will become quite addicting. The game is perfect for pick-up-and-play gamers.
  3. Cladun is a love letter to gamers who spend hours on forums bitching about how technology has ruined role playing games for the last fifteen years. For once, they're right; a retro style doesn't go hand in hand with disappointment after the pangs of nostalgia inevitably settle.
  4. Cladun: This is an RPG is made for the old-school RPG lover who appreciates nostalgic throwbacks with a dash of modern glazing and almost endless smile-inducing comedy.

    A weird experiment in RPGing, filled with irony and non conventional characters. There's a little too much grinding and some old school mechanics, yet it's still satisfying as a whole gaming experience. The budget price is great if you're looking for something different.
  6. With tons of weapons/armor/shields/artifacts to collect, a random dungeon creator after you make it through all of the campaign missions (each of which are replayable and earn you Fame, which unlocks more options and features), and a retro style to throw you back to a time when you first discovered video game dungeons, ClaDun is one of the most enjoyable games I've played in a long while.

    In the end, ClaDun just doesn't have much going for it beyond the retro trappings.

    Cladun is RPG, that makes fun of RPG's. It's a game that doesn't take itself to seriously story wise, but offer plenty of interesting, and rewarding hours of game-play. It's a dungeon crawler, and your main focus is just beating every dungeon, but later on, or after, you can try to go for the best time to gain fame points to buy rare, and better items later on. You have the option to switch from real or retro music, and I personally prefer the real music over retro. There also a easy to use, and simplistic leveling system which is call the Magic Circle. This where you can organize and switch out main chars, and sub chars on the fly. Sub chars take damage, and benefit from items call Artifacts, and can also die for you, and their stats can make you stronger. Main char level, and gain extra stats base on what class they are. Overall Cladun is a great game, and for the price it's going for now, it's well worth the buy. Expand
