    A unique game full of familiar components, Dungeon of the Endless is as its best while you're still figuring it out, but continues to entertain many hours in.

    An interesting stab in a new direction that has its definite flaws, but is still worth the time - if you're willing to give it.

    But it's a game that, once it has you hooked, will reel you back in over and over again because you just know you can do better this time, or perhaps you think you've discovered a new strategy - it's all very compelling.

    Overall, despite the bugs, it's an enjoyable experience that requires the player to stay on his or her toes while keeping the crystal's light alive.

    A fascinating mix of several genres, from RPG to tower defense to managerial, with a charming 8-bit visual style and good gameplay. More variety and a less random difficulty could have helped it, but it's however a deep and original roguelike experience.

    We've spent at least 12 hours in Dungeon of the Endless, and we haven't seen the end yet. And yet we start our quest over and over again, because the tactical gameplay and the element of luck that comes with randomly generated environments makes this game something special.

    It certainly requires a degree a practice and patience, but that’s what make the experience so entertaining.

    The game is all you can expect from a rogue-like... and more!

    Yes, the learning curve is steep and the game, by its random aspect (it's a rogue-like right?) can be frustrating at times, but nothing compares to the atmosphere the game brings with an amazing soundtrack, awesome artistic direction and the steady progression. These are also some of the reasons why the Souls series is cool as well. Each door is a complete surprise, you need to move slowly, make sure each of your decisions are well planned. The game proposes a ##### load of characters, each with their own abilities, different modes you can unlock, all kind of funny events. We played the game with 3 other friends in coop and we had a blast.

    I could go on and on about the mix of genres and such, it might not please everyone, but those who have the courage to die and retry, will stay there for quite some time!

    A clash of small-game genres with an RPG edge, Dungeon of the Endless is both a fantastic indie title and a bit of a disaster. There's a lotA clash of small-game genres with an RPG edge, Dungeon of the Endless is both a fantastic indie title and a bit of a disaster. There's a lot to like about how the game plays and the challenges it presents - ascending through levels is tough and beating the game requires a lot of practice and smart play. However, the game's bumbling UI and lack of explanation about ANYTHING makes it extremely tough to pick and and immediately enjoy. It took ~3 hours before I started getting the whole picture, since I had mistakenly come across some of the game's deeper features. The resource system doesn't make a lot of sense either. What's most impressive is that, even though the game lacks in its initial presentation, Dungeon of the Endless still ends up being fun while channeling a lot of visual style from SNES titles like Final Fantasy and Out of This World.
