Battle for Divinity
In some methods, Dungeon of Gods is similar to different cellular pseudo-roguelikes on Google Play. Nevertheless, Tremendous Planet’s cell-shaded motion RPG isn’t with out new concepts. It’s additionally a fairly good recreation in its personal proper and manages to face out from its crowd of rivals.
Dungeon of Gods’ story is kind of easy and solely exists to string collectively a collection of disconnected dungeon crawls. Gamers take the position of a half-human Demigod attempting to assert the title King of Gods. He does this by hacking and slashing his approach via more and more troublesome dungeons. These runs culminate in a boss battle towards a rival deity. Repeat as wanted till the sport runs out of gods so that you can kill.
Dungeon of Gods jogs my memory probably the most of what I name “Archero clones.” Gamers management their character with a simulated joystick on the underside of a vertically oriented display, with the character attacking enemies routinely. The sport consists of a number of Chapters divided into a number of Levels. Gamers select between one in every of three upgrades after every Stage however should begin the Chapter over in the event that they die at any level. Nevertheless, gamers will nonetheless maintain any Cash and Experiences discovered throughout their run and use them for character upgrades.
Hack and Slash
The primary distinction is that Dungeon of Gods revolves round Melee fight reasonably than bullet hell-inspired taking pictures. The Demigod has two sorts of assaults, commonplace melee strikes, and a extra highly effective Assault. The previous occurs routinely at any time when the Demigod comes into contact with an enemy. Nevertheless, Assaults are positively the main focus of Dungeon of Gods’ fight system.
A pink arrow seems on the Demigod’s ft when an enemy comes into vary. The arrow grows and shrinks primarily based on the gap, with a “candy spot” that’s neither too shut nor too far-off. When gamers launch the joystick, the Demigod lunges ahead to Assault the focused enemy. If the Demigod’s Assault kills the goal, he routinely Assaults the subsequent closest goal. If that concentrate on dies, he Assaults the subsequent one, then the subsequent after that. This lets gamers string collectively a formidable killstreak, doubtlessly clearing a whole room with one assault.
Doing so is immensely satisfying, however you possibly can’t simply cost in headlong and anticipate success in each struggle. The later levels of every Chapter can get fairly crowded, and it’s simple for gamers to get swarmed in the event that they aren’t cautious. The Demigod additionally doesn’t have the well being to face there and tank infinite hits. I discovered the most effective tactic was to Assault, sneak in a single or two Melee assaults, then retreat earlier than the enemy responds with an assault of its personal. Dungeon of Gods isn’t Darkish Souls and even Pascal’s Wager, for that matter. Nonetheless, it presents a easy and enjoyable formulation for a cellular motion RPG.
Smash and Seize
Gamers can buff their Melee and Assault injury by equipping and upgrading new and higher weapons. Dungeon of Gods has 12 distinctive weapons in all. Nevertheless, gamers can scroll down properly previous the underside of the record, so Tremendous Planet would possibly add extra later. Dungeon of Gods splits them into six color-coded Tiers, and every Tier has one Melee and one Assault-focused weapon. For instance, the Blue-tiered Spear offers a small bonus to Assault and a big bonus to Melee. It shares a Tier with the two-handed Axe, which does the alternative. Nevertheless, a better Tier weapon will nearly all the time be higher than a lower-tier merchandise on the identical improve stage. To make use of one other instance, the Gold Sword and Protect is that Tier’s Melee weapon. Nevertheless, it’s higher in each classes than both Blue weapon. Armor Jewellery and charms work equally, with two choices for every of the 12 tiers.
Gamers unlock Weapons and different objects from Dungeon of Gods’ gacha containers. Gamers unlock the chests with Tickets and Gems, which they get from finishing numerous in-game challenges. I don’t love gacha mechanics in precept, however Dungeon of Gods is healthier than most when handing out objects. Thus, I received’t criticize it an excessive amount of.
Now, is Dungeon of Gods my superb recreation? Not likely. I might have most well-liked no less than some effort at storytelling and phrase constructing. The restricted variety of character skins can also be nothing to jot down residence about. So, maintain these components when evaluating its rating to the opinions of different RPGs on this web site. Nonetheless, it’s time, and I believe it succeeds at just about all the things it units out to be.
Is It Hardcore?
Dungeon of Gods is an easy however enjoyable cellular motion RPG with sufficient new options to face out from the gang.
