If you’re a fan of roguelike dungeon crawlers, you might find yourself overwhelmed at times with the options on the table in this day and age. First of all, “roguelike" as a term can mean just about anything these days, and throwback style dungeon crawlers have become pretty trendy in recent years meaning there’s new ones literally coming out of our ears at any given time. With so many varieties of dungeon crawler out there, you might be wondering where you can find a solid, dependable, by the numbers dungeon crawl. And my answer on mobile would be Quest of Dungeons ($1.99). The game’s been available on mobile since the spring of 2014, and has since spread to pretty much every platform under the sun, and it’s followed me on my various devices over the years strictly because I know I can count on it to provide me with a very straightforward dungeon crawling experience. It doesn’t try to break any new ground or turn the genre on its head, and that’s what I like about it. It’s like a warm, comfy blanket you can curl up with whenever you have a hankering for adventure.
This might not be news to many of you as we did give a positive review to Quest of Dungeons back when it released, and we talked about it again in the fall of 2016 when a massive update landed that added a new NecroDancer class, a new dungeon, a new custom game mode, and more as an optional DLC purchase called Revenge of the Jelly King. That was kind of the last we had heard of Quest of Dungeons, but this week another great update has landed that not only adds full screen support for all the newest iPhone models but also adds a new dungeon called Rothar Mansion for owners of the Revenge of the Jelly King DLC. There’s also a revamped main menu and an iMessage sticker pack if you’re into the whole sending people stickers thing. Best of all is that Quest of Dungeons is currently on sale for the first time in two years, down to 99¢ from its original $1.99. The DLC is just 99¢ as well which means you can get the whole enchilada for the price that just the base game normally costs. Like I said Quest of Dungeons has been a faithful companion to me over the years so if you have yet to check it out and crave a solid dungeon crawler then now is a great time to dive in.
