Pocket Dungeon: Underground Labyrinth

No longer available in the App Store

Pocket Dungeon is another progressive dungeon crawler from the makers of the insanely simple but addictive SmallRPG. It looks like more of the same: continual progression through rooms with harder and harder monsters, levelling up and finding different bits of gear. There are boss monsters every few levels. If you die, you get thrown back several rooms and lose levels (“reincarnation”), and it’s slower to gain back experience points until you reach the level you were at before you died.

Pocket Dungeon appears to have a few tweaks and additions such as customisable equipment and a twice-as-large inventory (40 items). The UI is a little neater as well. As with the previous game you heal slowly over time, or you can use potions. You can also name your character – a sad farewell to “Braverman”.
