We’re big fans of developer Jussi Simpanen’s games around here, and especially enjoyed his 2015 release Tiny Dangerous Dungeons ($0.99). It’s a Metroidvania-style platformer with one big interconnected world to explore and items to discover that will allow you to progress to previously off limits parts of that map. What I like about it is that it’s a more simplistic and smaller affair than a lot of the Metroidvanias that come out nowadays. Sure, it’s fun to get lost for dozens of hours exploring a huge game, but sometimes it’s refreshing to play a game like Tiny Dangerous Dungeons that’s more straightforward. And this week the game has received a new update bringing support for the full screens of Apple’s iPhone X models as well as the new iPad Pro.
If you want to hear more about why we enjoyed Tiny Dangerous Dungeons, then you can check out our full review from when the game released in 2015. Like I mentioned, it’s a breezy take on the Metroidvania formula but one that’s really fun from beginning to end. And I absolutely love the Game Boy-inspired aesthetic. If you enjoy it, I can also recommend its sibling Super Dangerous Dungeons (Free) which offers more traditional platforming with a SNES-inspired aesthetic. And heck, while you’re at it, you might as well play the puzzle platformer Duke Dashington Remastered (Free) and the dual-platformer Heart Star (Free) too. Just play them all already!
