    Dungeon Keeper’s pared-down reboot is fun on its own right, even if it's not quite the same creature as the excellent classic games it’s based on.

    Dungeon Keeper for iOS is a well-made mobile update of a classic.

    It's not Dungeon Keeper, but Dungeon Keeper has enough going for it that it's worth a punt.

    It's a huge shame, because Dungeon Keeper is such a great franchise. I vividly remember getting hooked on the original for the very first time, and hooking in non-strategy fans with its unique perspective and visual style. But you're getting none of that here, as you're instead presented with a hollow freemium shell of what once was.

    It could've been a chance to give a second life to an old classic, but EA got this all wrong. The managing side is poor, and a greedy microtransaction system ultimately spoils the fun.

    The tragedy of Dungeon Keeper is that every so often, it shows glimpses of what makes it great. You can see the classic game is in there somewhere: its genius, and what it could have been. But then the gates slam shut, as though the Dungeon Keeper himself is kept in a larger meta-dungeon, whose bean-counting overlord tells you to come back later, or maybe even tomorrow. Or pay up.

    Dungeon Keeper is not a video game, not any more. Instead it’s just a virtual beggar, constantly demanding your spare change and offering nothing in return.

    Stupid money-wasting not-game. Very little gameplay, and huge expenses. What would you rather:
    A) Waiting 4-24 hours to mine a SINGLE BLOCK
    Stupid money-wasting not-game. Very little gameplay, and huge expenses. What would you rather:
    A) Waiting 4-24 hours to mine a SINGLE BLOCK
    B) Spending real money every time you want to 'mine' a block
    C) Never picking the game up again

    I'd pick C every time, as it's the cheapest and least-infuriating. Hey, at least this game is better than Super Princess Peach and Bayonetta, because you aren't forced to play as a woman, huh?

Some sick part of me wanted a new Dungeon Keeper game of my youth, sadly, as soon as that EA logo popped up I knew it was all downhill from there.

    There is truly nothing sacred to these people, everything in this game is designed to make EA money.

    They even go against the App Stores policy of rewarding the player for rating the game 5 stars. If that doesn't fill you with the typical EA hatred of the (Expected) 4th time winner of the Golden Poo award for worst company in the world, nothing will.

    No. Just No. No. NO. Dont believe the (currently) high score. This game is a fraud. It's so cheeky in its design that it even asks you in theNo. Just No. No. NO. Dont believe the (currently) high score. This game is a fraud. It's so cheeky in its design that it even asks you in the TUTORIAL to spend money for jewels. You can get in-game currency trough archivements, but the amount of jewels you can get is a absolute joke.In example: 5 jewels for getting 6 imps. How much costs the third imp? 800 jewels. The fourth? 1400. This game is designed to lure you in with fancy graphics and then annoy you until you pay money. Dont give this business modell a chance. Dont play it. Dont pay for it. Dont rate it any higher then zero. Expand

    I come forth as the morning sun to vanquish this horrible night of a game. The game is a complete joke. Calling it a game is already a joke toI come forth as the morning sun to vanquish this horrible night of a game. The game is a complete joke. Calling it a game is already a joke to begin with. The game is designed to be slow and boring just so you pay money to speed it up. Absolutely Disgusting. This Money-harvesting application is a sham to shill the player out of as many dollars as possible. EA has absolutely no shame making garbage like this. The IP is completely ruined. Here is hoping they win the Golden poop for a 3rd year in a row.
    Don't even waste your time with this, they're just trying to nickle and dime people. Any self-respecting person should not play this, and any self-respecting developer would never concoct such an abomination of a game, completely **** over a revered classic. Absolutely Disgusting.
