What the developers say:
“Hello! We're excited to bring you an Early Access version of Dungeon Dashers, a fast-paced turn-based dungeon crawler which has been lovingly crafted by a small team over the past 18 months.
Dungeon Dashers is still in development, so please read the planned features list below to see what's in the current build and what we're planning to add. We're always iterating on the design, so things are subject to change. But we're aiming to have a fun and unique dungeon crawling adventure that you can enjoy with friends.
Specifically, we're hoping to test out new multiplayer features so that the final release goes smoothly and we'd love to get your feedback the game so far.
Thank you for supporting our game, and we look forward to your feedback on its development.”
Dungeon Dashers is a fast-paced turn-based dungeon crawler, bringing the enjoyment of a tabletop board game with friends to the PC. The game's design streamlines the core dungeon crawler experience to its essentials, for an intense, loot-grabbing adventure.
Accumulate wealth by smashing boxes full of gold, slaying monsters, and looting glowing chests. Use your gold to buy consumables to boost your abilities or craft upgrades for your equipment. Find new swords, bows, staffs, spells and other equipment hidden in chests obscured by challenges and quests.
These are the features that are in the current build of the game so far:
Tactical and diverse combat mechanics
Epic dragon boss battle and over 15 enemy types to face (many more bosses to come, and more enemy types)
Custom loadouts for each class based on loot found in dungeons
13 unique player skills (30 skills planned)
11 levels spread out across 5 environments (40 levels planned)
More than 15 unlockable pieces of unique equipment including swords and armour (30+ pieces planned)
Level editor with user campaign creation support
Original full-length chiptune soundtrack composed by Nathan “Derris-Kharlan” Antony
Compelling narrative and character dialogue spanning the entire campaign
Dungeon Dashers is still in development and we're adding new features every day. Here's what we've got planned for future builds:
Hardcore mode for those who finish the game and want more of a challenge
Online co-operative gameplay for up to 4 players
Consumable items, such as potions
Weapon upgrades using the gold you've found from looting

This game brings back the fun of tabletop rpgs to the computer. The gameplay is very well ported to the pc and very unique game. If you enjoy tabletop turn based game but cannot get together this is a great game to buy; but make sure you have friends to play it with. The game creators have almost perfectly capture the essence of moving around game pieces on a table. The graphics are not AAA quality but that is to be expected from an indie title. If you are an avid tabletop gamer looking for something new or just someone who loves to play coop games this game might be an interesting choice.
Cons: The game is very buggy (At least at the time of this review) This game needs to be played with friends.

And next RPG game which I have to comment and rate. Well. I think it's pretty nice game. Plot has to be on high level and luckily it is. Graphic is nice as for Indie games which cant of course compete with hight budget popular games. (As i said. Only if we talk about graphic). The next think is gameplay. I like it definitely. Combination of characters, enemies, plot and gameplay give us great enjoyable game. I would play this for a weeks. Of course i like this game and i recommend it.

Dungeon Dashers is a turn-based dungeon crawler. This game is not bad. It is fast-paced (something that I like). There is a lot of unlockeables. The pixel art style is well done. The story is humorous. So are its dialogues, and if you don't like them, you can skip them. You can speed up AI turns. And the thing I like the most is its high difficulty level. Despite all these great things, the interface is not the best and there is no mouse and controller support.

I'm writing this review based on the first version in the early access, so there are bound to be many changes and improvements. This game visually looks like a rogue like, but in fact it's not. It's pure dungeon crawler used predesigned dungeons with little randomness. But there is an editor so you can expect the community to create many more dungeons. The game is played with keyboard exclusively, should work ok with a controller too. In the game you control a party of four characters - a thief, knight, wizard and elf (ranger). In combat each character has its set of AP and movement is based on initiative. Thanks to a number of skills the combat gets fairly tactical and is deeply satisfying, unfortunately atm there is no loot, just gold with which you can purchase new equipment. Sometimes there are also puzzles usually requiring some logical thinking and using the abilities of the characters. The game is very easy to get into and fun. it has a lot of charm, and it is nowadays unique - on one hand it looks very old school, but with a very streamlined and easy gameplay.

If you've completed Dungeons of Dredmore and The Binding of Isaac, Dungeon Dashers could be your next choice. The game is still in Early Aceess (it's not fiished yet), but still is a very good game. It has a lot of levels and skin, so the replay value is high. Maybe the graphic is not that good (it reminds me the Spiderweb titles), but it's not that important. The gameplay is solid, making this a really good game. I hope they will add Hardcore mode soon, to improve the challenge a bit.
