Dungelot: Shattered Lands

Dungelot: Shattered Lands


Tinybuilt and a random generated dungeon game called Dungelot…nothing more to say here to get you hyped for this title! Let me tell you a few things for the game and for the devs behind it. Dungelot: Shattered Lands takes you on an epic roguelike dungeon-crawler adventure to defeat zombie cows, splat giant evil mushrooms, and generally get back home in one piece. Deceptively simple, ever so addictive.

Developed by Red Winter, a two man studio based in Russia, Dungelot: Shattered Lands is the third part in the popular series, and tasked the player with traversing randomly-generated dungeons, smashing enemies in the face and hunting for the keys that will allow you to venture even further. Dungelot originally became a cult hit thanks to its addictive "just one more go" feel, and with Shattered Lands, the Dungelot formula has now been fully realized. The first thing that really impressed me is that the game feels so fresh. It combines a lot of aspects that we have loved in game throughout the years.

Dungelot: Shattered Lands
A minesweeper dungeon style, random generated enemies and dungeons and of course turn based combat. You really don’t know what to expect when you start exploring a dungeon. Will I face an enemy or will I find coins…what about potions? You should think before you act and plan your strategy. Sometimes you can’t explore everything in the floor, you will choose the quick way to escape from it and reach the final floor.

Another positive is that the game has a really satisfying story and voice acting and with all these aspects you get the necessity to play a little bit more. You just can’t quit. Another positive aspect is that there a lot of heroes to choose from (1 unlocked from the start) and a lot of items and gear to collect/buy. As far as the negative aspects are concerned, I really tried to find one or two but I can’t. You just can’t hate it! If I had to mention one it would be that some items are expensive but this is up to the player to decide.

To sum up, the game is a gem in your library. You just can’t hate it...you will LOVE IT! The price is tempting as well so…what are you waiting?
