(SNAPP Reviews aren’t really full-fledged game reviews as much as they are just a way for us to give you a quick “heads-up” on whether a game is good or not. It usually means that we haven’t finished the game yet, but have played a good enough chunk to know if it’s worth your time or money.)
Dungeons & Miners is an action-adventure game that was recently released on the App Store by Angry Bugs. Those of you that have been playing mobile games for a while will know that this is the team behind the iOS classics like Drylands, The Hacker, and Mutant. Anyway, D&M has you playing as a troll-ish outsider that is helping the king restore the kingdom of Gravulgar. It’s a side-scroller that does a great job blending a bit of dungeon crawling with mining. (I guess you could’ve figured that out by the title). This is one of those games that open up the more you play it. After a very brief tutorial, you are pretty much left alone to figure things out for yourself. That’s honestly what I really liked about this game. You feel like you’re still learning new things even after hours of play. Without giving too much away, you’ll spend a lot of time underground mining for copper, iron, gems, and more. As you dig down, you’ll run into caverns to explore, monsters to fight, and treasures to find. You’ll then use your findings to upgrade your gear and help restore the kingdom itself. As you can tell, I’m really trying to be vague with this review. I honestly want everyone to experience what I’ve been experiencing so far. So, is the game worth your hard earned money? I’d say yes. If you’re a fan of dungeon crawlers, side scrollers, RPGs, hell even roguelikes, then you’ll really enjoy Dungeons & Miners. It’s not perfect. The controls could be a bit better when mining, but you get used to it. Dungeons & Miners is one of the better games that I’ve played this year.
