It might just be something in the air, but most of us over here are starting to really get into rogue-likes. Mighty Dungeons [$1.99] is the latest one we've played, and we're digging it for the usual reasons: the thrill of random loot drops, the high stakes of permanent death, and the satisfaction that comes with killing hundreds and hundreds of skeletons lurking about in crypts, secret rooms, and libraries. What more could you want, right?

In the interest of giving you a solid look at the game, Eli and I gave this a go just the other day. We dived into quite a few dungeons in mad searches for forgotten relics and managed to, somehow, live quite a while. As you'll notice, the starting difficulty in Mighty Dungeons is maybe a little too ... easy, so maybe consider ratcheting it up before you go on your own no-heals MLG no-scope perma-death run.

    Fun game, but the newer (by just a week) Dark Quest is better - party based combat involving strategy and traps! Though MD has more content.

    Put it on YouTube.

    This video on a mobile game on a mobile game website in a mobile app is unwatchable on mobile.

    Hey guys, thanks a lot for reviewing my game. The video was really fun to watch :p (@Zeldaniac I actually watched this on my phone on my way to work, not sure why you can't see this on the mobile, it did take a while to load though). I checked out Dark Quest and it is really a cool game and the dev is very friendly, you should indeed give it a go as well :)

      You can't watch it full screen on the iPad.
      I tried it on my iPhone, and though it eventually loads, it takes ages compared to YouTube videos.
      I find it a disgrace that an iOS game reviewing site as respected as TA uses video service that doesn't allow for full screen viewing on the iPad.

    Cant figure out how to turn on HD. Really low res otherwise. Also, been missing a lot of your videos since they haven't been popping up on YouTube.

    i hope this is a recurring theme:

    brad: he looks like [insert something]
    eli: little bit.

    Someone explain the appeal of this genre to me. It's truly perplexing.
