Dungeon Hunter: Journal I

Standard

Dungeon Hunter Title ScreenWelcome to my first journal for iPhone/iPod Touch app Dungeon Hunter. Every once in a blue moon I’ll post an update on my progress through the game. Be sure to check back often!

Dungeon Hunter #17

Charting in at #17 of the Top Paid Apps this week, Gameloft's Dungeon Hunter (link will open iTunes) seeks to fill the hack-and-slash hole in every gamers heart.

Now I have to admit that the $6.99 price tag left me a bit reluctant to try out this Diablo clone. So, I decided to check out a few reviews before jumping into the fray.

This better be good.

Selecting a new game, I quickly chose from the three available character classes (Warrior, Rogue, and Mage) and was introduced to the game’s storyline via cinematic.

Fullmetal Alchemist taught me that resurrecting loved ones never ends well.

Death cannot stop what has be prophesized.

And thus our story begins...

I then battled my way through the Catacombs only to find out that our hero had been dead for quite sometime. After laying waste to some undead, I ventured forth into the town of Thamos. That is a story for another day, however.

Perhaps Thamos holds the key...

Thoughts so far:

  1. I like the game so far, but I question the longevity of it holding my attention (as with any app). We’ll see.
  2. The opening cinematics are quite impressive.
  3. I have to keep telling myself that this isn’t Hero of Sparta due to its graphics.
  4. The gameplay, controls, and music are all excellent thus far.
  5. I would love a button to constantly mash versus a flat touch screen. Gaming on the iDevice…

Join me next time.
