If you spin the clocks back to GDC (which feels like ages ago even though it totally wasn't), we actually had our pepperoni-greased hands all over Gamevil's Dark Avenger which is due out this evening at 11:00 PM Eastern, or potentially way earlier if you're in Europe or Asia. We took some extensive hands-on video of the game, which still feels representative of the release version of the game:

In a nutshell, Dark Avenger is another crack at a mobile version of Diablo. They were beaten to the App Store by Gameloft's recently released Dungeon Hunter 4 [Free] and I'm super curious to see which will end up being the champion of this proverbial dungeon crawling cage match.

Impressions on our forums generally seem to be positive, although multiple members have mentioned that the game feels a little flat. That echoes my experiences as well, although admittedly I'm very curious to see if/when the game opens up at all to anything more than mindless monster mashing.

    At first I was like "Wow, lots of release posts today."

    Then I was like "Oh yeah..."

    It is similiar to Eternity Warriors 2 and Dungeon Hunter 3. Plenty of gold and decent loot though.

    GamEVIL, I think I'll pass.

    As long as you don't have to buy the potions I think this one should be fine. Hopefully you can have a lot of skill equipped at the same time as well.

    Ooh, they were quick on the correction of "GamEvil."

    The game says it comes with 3 classes there's actually 1! Ranger says coming soon and can't even see Mage

    Looks cool, will definitely check it out if it's free. I'm a big proponent of free-to-play if it's done right, I'm praying this is...

    How's the rest of the game, other than dungeon crawling? Is there story, character customization, anything else or is it just levels?

    Where is the new releases for tonight?????
