‘Dungeon Raid’-like Puzzler ‘Darkin’ Hits the App Store This Week

Back at GDC, one of the games that got the most traction amongst our community was the puzzle game Darkin. It’s not much of a surprise, considering basically everyone around here loves Dungeon Raid ($0.99), but that game is so defunct it’s still sporting the OpenFeint logo on its icon. For those of you playing along at home, the online leaderboard and social network OpenFeint has been closed since late 2012, to give you an idea of how long it has been since Dungeon Raid got some update love.

Well, Darkin aims to take the Dungeon Raid formula, but update it to 2014 standards. Additionally, it has dropped the dungeon crawler-y theme to instead focus on vampires- A risky move considering I’m not entirely sure if everyone still hates vampires because of Twilight? Either way, I’m stoked as hell for Darkin, which should be available along with the rest of the games released this week on Wednesday night.
