    Quest of Dungeons

    Quest of Dungeons is a turn-based dungeon crawler game: a roguelike featuring a good old 16-bit, retro artistic look.

    An evil Dark Lord has stolen all the light, so your mission is to enter his lair and defeat him.

    By playing as either a Warrior, a Wizard, an Assassin or a Shaman, you have to traverse dungeons, defeat enemies and loot everything you can in order to survive. You can learn new skills in Tomes you find along the way and buy/sell items at shops.

    The entire game is procedural so you won't find items/enemies in the same place each time you play.

    Features:

    • Procedural dungeons
    • Procedural weapons
    • Boss encounters
    • Quests
    • 4 Difficulty levels
    • Permadeath - Once you die, game over man, game over!
    • Shop - buy and sell items/weapons
    • Leaderboards - compare your Adventure points with the community

    Let me preface by saying that I typically do not play Roguelikes, but I found myself really enjoying Quest of Dungeons. It is very easy to pickup and play when you only have a few minutes; meshing wonderfully into the Switch's same features. I prefer the faster pace this title gives in comparison to other current Switch roguelikes, like Hammerwatch. While it appears pretty casual on the surface, there's enough depth to make it one of those "easy to learn, hard to master" games. Of course, the higher you go in terms of difficulty, the more strategy (and luck) will be involved as well. Whenever I play Quest of Dungeons, I find myself looking back fondly on memories of Castle of the Winds; my first Roguelike from the early 90s. That is not to say that Dungeons makes me wish I was playing a 25 year old game. It simply reminded me that I shouldn't write off genres based on previous experiences alone. If anything, Quest of Dungeons has served as a palate cleanser for me to experience future Switch roguelikes. It certainly isn't an amazing game or without flaws, but I feel it is well worth the asking price.
