Deep Dungeons of Doom

JohnBWant that refreshing RPG flavor with a slight twist? Deep Dungeons of Doom from MiniBoss has the formula down to a science. Fight monsters, gain experience, buy equipment and complete quests, all by tapping the sides of the screen. The adventure you'll undertake is as righteous as any "gotta save the world from evil" role playing game, but here you only have to worry about the exciting stuff!

Deep Dungeons of DoomDeep Dungeons of Doom pits you against enemy after enemy in a series of one-on-one battles. Tap the left side of the screen to block, tap the right side to attack. You can't just wail away with your sword, however, as there's a particular rhythm associated with making your moves. Time everything just right and you'll pull off combos or attack enemies in their weak spot, which as we all know is the only way to defeat things like eyeball monsters from the depths of the Earth or giant crabs.

Between bouts you can upgrade your skills, mess with your inventory, or dig through the in-app purchasing store where you can buy revives, gold and the like. It's all very neatly balanced as to not be intrusive or compulsory, just a little extra to enhance the game when you need it. Apart from that, Deep Dungeons of Doom is about as old school as they get, from the pixel graphics to the trickster enemies to the massive amount of dungeons you'll crawl through.

NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on the iPad 3. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.

I wish I could play these games on a browser. Is there some kind of emulator or something I can use?

ok, I played all I could from the free part. Although it has a very interesting mechanics, the battles are long and tiresome. Most of them have the exact same pattern repeated, so you basically sit there touching the left side and the right side, left, right, left, right almost like a clock. I play one battle and I feel tired and not willing to keep playing, but the dungeons are also long and fighting is all there is to do. There's nothing else.
All in all, it's not for me. But might be for others. After all, I never really liked Diablo, for example, and lots of people enjoy it.
