Dungeon Raid [$1.99] is still one of my favorite games, but it hasn't been updated since early 2011 and is really starting to feel old. Well, Darkin is setting out to offer an updated vampire-themed experience which feels a lot like the Dungeon Raid experience only... made this year:

Darkin is still in development, and hopefully sees a release soon. Bring on more puzzle games with RPG elements I say!

    Looks interesting!
    Add to my watch list, hope it will be released soon.

    If its Dungeon Raid but with a 2014 feeling I will be all over this :D

    Dungeon Raid is still one of my all-time iOS faves as well. Even with the much more complex ports like KOTOR and XCOM, there's still something about Dungeon Raid that brings back great feelings and memories.

      100% agreed.
      And while the dev says a few times, "this is like an updated Dungeon Raid", from my POV Dungeon Raid looks waaaay better than this.
      Better concept, better execution, similar graphics, and better gameplay / better abilities, etc.
      DR might still have Open Feint, but so what -- I value *THE GAME*, not the leaderboard.

    This looks great and I am happy it will be a premium game. $2.99 seems quite reasonable.

  • DtheGOPkiller

    What I cannot figure out is why with the popularity of DR and how awesome it was they stopped supporting it? Or why not a sequel? Weird.

    • Psac42

      Basically it was a single developer, and he said he had things going on in his life so he didn't have time to devote him.

      • Psac42

        ... Errr. To it. Bad typos in that one!

  • Slothwerks

    This looks amazing, insta-buy for me. Still seeking that elusive Dungeon Raid magic years later.

    Just waiting for king to clone dungeon raid with monetization methods and then we will see all the pie eyed angel investors wondering who can make them a dungeon raid clone... But can't because king will own the word "raid". And "dungeon"

    I'd really like to see Dungeon Raid 2 revamped / expanded by the original DEV. (This game is not an acceptable update, but it IS a clone.)
    Speaking of DR, lots of great strategies on the Dungeon Raid TA forum page!!
    Also, you can google "dungeon raid rekzkarz" and find my page of strategies on my blog.
    I have no idea how people got such high scores, however. My technique(s) can keep me going a long time, but some abilities probably combo nicely but I never figured out many of them (like exploding potions, fireball + slash, etc) or just never used them.

    I loath anything to do with vampires but Dungeon Raid is my go-to game when I'm stuck with my iPod. If this supports older OS versions I'll be on this from day one.
