Dungeons of Dreadrock (Switching eShop) Review
Dungeon of Dreadrock is a simple mini-game that revolves around an adventurous girl’s efforts to save her brother who sacrificed herself in a haunted dungeon. He’s been knocked down a hundred floors with goblins, spiders, traps, and other horrible things, and you’ll need to get through them all if you want to save him. Narration is kept to a minimum here, but the brief descriptions that play several floors as you nap by the fire help give you a sense of the world and why your brother feels the need to. sacrifice yourself.
The gameplay has been compared to a dungeon crawler game, but this is really a puzzle game with the magical outfit of the ‘n’ sword. Each floor of the dungeon is laid out in a grid pattern, and the goal is to figure out how to get to the next set of stairs safely, often requiring you to figure out exactly how to take out any enemies and avoid them. cause obstacles along the way. In this way, this is not the type where you will test a lot of your skills or ingenuity — the emphasis here is form more plan enforce it.
As you go deeper, the Dungeons of Dreadrock continues to find new and innovative ways to challenge players, such as introducing some puzzles that require returning to the last floor or the addition of gimmicks. like a teleportation system. No two floors are ever too alike, and the overall puzzle design feels daunting, but manageable. Rarely do you know what to do right away, but after a few minutes of research and a number of failed attempts, you can often come up with an answer.
The image is strongly evaluated after the art style of The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Hat, is characterized by animated, yet detailed and unique 32-bit drawings and environments. Everything here looks nice enough, but we’d like to see a bit more variety of environments and enemies, as going from one dungeon floor to another looks like it’s going to get tiresome after a bit. Meanwhile, its music has a delightfully light feel, with most floors simply having background noise and a slight wind sound to set the atmosphere.
One thing that we feel is worthy is that you can now download Dungeons of Dreadrock for free on smart devices; ad removal is a simple matter of a one-time $2.49 purchase. Paying four times that for the option of playing it with a Joy-Con on your TV (we were told Pro Controller support is coming through an update) is a tough buy and not a big deal. is something we would recommend unless you don’t have a smart device or you absolutely insist while playing this game on Switch. It’s a great game that plays well on consoles, but doesn’t have any exciting new features to justify a much higher price tag than it’s used to. Hey, it’s on the Switch! factor.
Dungeons of Dreadrock is a well-designed puzzle game that deftly builds to its formula over its short run. Those looking for a good game to wind down before bed might want to check it out, although we recommend investigating the smart device version if you’re having fun playing on mobile devices. motion.
