deviousdungeonlogoRavenous Games will always be one of my very favorite iOS developers for their excellent League of Evil trilogy, but some of their other releases have failed to reach that same high level for me. Not that I think they've ever released a bad game, but the League of Evil games clicked with me on so many different levels that the rest of their catalogue hasn't quite lived up to that same mark. Well Devious Dungeon is their latest effort, and according to Ravenous it "gets back to our roots of solid action platforming." Music to my ears.

Devious Dungeon is another action platformer, but with a focus on melee-based combat and RPG-style leveling and loot collecting. The levels, items and enemy placements are also randomly generated so it should feel different each time you play. It's also got a medieval theme, which I'm really liking. Check out the brand new trailer to get a sense of what Devious Dungeon is all about.

The best part is that we aren't going to have to wait long for Devious Dungeon, as it's set to launch this Thursday for 99¢. I'm pretty excited for it, as are the folks in our forums, some of which took part in the beta test for Devious Dungeon and had pretty much nothing but positive things to say about it. If you're a Ravenous fan or just a fan of action platformers, make sure Devious Dungeon is on your radar for when it launches later this week.

    fan of all of the above. give. GIVE!!!

  • Unfrozen

    Looks like fun. I really enjoyed the League of Evil games and Infestor.

  • TrencH

    From what I have seen on the trailer it looks great. Going to try this one out.

  • Flare_TM

    Will wait for imps, their last few games have been disappointments

  • Amenbrother

    Count me in!

  • Deixa

    The trailer is a lie, the game is not as fast as the trailer shows. It will be the same as random heroes but with knights. That's pretty much what it is. I can see this getting a 3/4 out of 5 from appspy and same here on TA. Still pretty good but the hype will die down after 5 mins gameplay PLUS all the bugs with gamecenter as they seem to constantly have

    • ImJPaul

      You broke a coveted TouchArcade rule...

      Thou shalt not mention AppSpy.

      • cofunguy

        So did you,,,so there!

    • ZorakZoran

      Looks a lot like random heroes indeed... I'll pass on this one, waiting for them to come up with something really new...

    • Cheeseball

      For me, I liked the simplicity of the platformer gameplay found in Random Heroes and it's sequel (the controls actually worked well for touchscreens). I was thinking, "If it had randomized levels, a looting system and proper melee weapons, I'd be all over it."

      Apparently, Devious Dungeon may be the response to what I was thinking. :P

      But yeah, I can understand the repetitiveness of Random Heroes. Still, some people do want a RPG-like grindfest just for the hell of it.

    There must be more roguelike action games like wazhack or this I swear.

    • Spaztika

      The trailer reminds me a bit of Rogue Legacy, which is a roguelike-like action RPG, but it's only on PC. :( It's worth checking out if you're a PC gamer too.

    • elr0y7

      Yeah, it seems like there's a lot of top-down ones and turn-based rpgs, but not a lot of these, metroidvania games with deep combat and customization. I'd be happy with a re-skinned wazhack honestly.

  • Lunartic

    Definitely looks like Random Heroes 3 but I loved the first two so I'll be getting this for sure!

  • Deixa

    Don't get me wrong this does look good and probably will get it but it is pretty much a re skin of random heroes.
    Also random heroes 2 was a good game but there were too many levels of the same world and end up getting bored and deleting it.
    I hope there is enough loot to purchase new weapons. I hate playing the same levels over and over again to get enough cash to buy something

    (refuse to buy iAP cause iPhones are not arcade machines)

    Just hope this doesn't disappoint like their last few releases!

  • Ollivar Frank

    If this is random heroes but medieval I'm going to be greatly disappointed.

  • Axl3dd

    Android?

    • Deixa

      iOS only

  • CzarBrain

    I'm dying for a true RPG that just doesn't suck. Something that'll hold me longer than five minutes and not be a clone of others. I want to get vested into my character.

  • bigrand1

    Instabuy for the big guy!

  • Draven2222

    iOS7 MFi Game controller supported.?
    Mikey Hooks/Shorts (platformer) play excellent with them.

  • Chris Brady

    I am a graphics and animation whore, and this game seems to only use one hand combat animations. I like pixel art actually, but this looks disappointing to me.

  • Goggles789

    Another Ravenous re-skin. Yawn.

  • Shifaan

    BEEP BEP
