    Smash Dungeon is a dark and bloody single player arena game that started life as a gauntlet style game but has since morphed in to a more Smash TV type of game.

    It features procedural levels, upgradable skill sets, multiple boss battles, lots of pickups to enhance your abilities, unlockable charaters and more...

    Many of the enemies you encounter have different skills sets. Here are a couple in a one on one scenario (which will never happen in game ;) )
    Mutant


    Pig


    Enemy Spawner


    The game will be premium (not sure of price yet).

    There's a few more weeks to go and then I'll be asking for beta testers if anyone is interested.
    There's still a long way to go and I'm a solo dev so please bear with me :)
    All feedback appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Thanks everyone. I will be looking in to MFI support soon as I think this kind of game just cries out for it. Quite looking forward to trying it myself on MFI.

    Love the style of gameplay you have here... reminds me of Gauntlet from the 1980s. I would like to put my name in for a BETA testing spot. Thanks for your consideration.

    Hi All,

    Thanks for all the offers for beta testing. I'm not ignoring you, its just not quite ready for beta yet - probably another 2-3 weeks.
    I'll keep you updated on progress every few days and be in touch about beta asap.
    Thanks for your patience.

    In the meantime, here's a demiboss in the works...

    Awesome, please feel free to PM me regarding beta testing. I’ve been a long term controller player on iOS, and love twin sticks, loved smash tv on the Super Nintendo and remember playing gaunlet in the arcades!

    Hi All, sorry for the radio silence.

    Here's a short video of some more gameplay against one of the bosses.



    Its taking a bit longer than I thought but hopefully the extra time will show.
    Still a few weeks away from beta but I'll be in touch in due course.
    Thanks.

    Oh nearly forgot...
    Controller support added ;)

    Full ranged characters are planned but I'm thinking this may need to be as part of the first update.
    The current plan is 3 melee characters on launch, although power ups do provide your character with some ranged abilities.
    eg launch a flame or ice blast from weapon

    To give you an idea of what I mean, here's a very early wip showing the flame sword effect.

    Looks cool.
    What are the plans for the aiming system for ranged heroes? Auto-aim or manual? Or one and the other?

    For melee heroes with range ability (ie flame sword etc) they will remain single stick with manual + slight assisted aim.
    For ranged heroes such as archer or wizard, my current thinking is they would be twin stick also with slight aim assist although this will all come out in the testing.
    I did have an archer hero working like this in an earlier build but I wasnt happy with the animations & movement so I've pulled them for initial released and focused solely on the melee heroes.

    Melee heroes also have slight aim assist and you can hold down the attack button and direct the combat with the stick to focus on a specific enemy, although this may change based on feedback. One thing you CAN NOT do is just hold the attack button and slaughter everything around you, even with the aim assist you still need to give a direction to attack.

    @slack8182 Thanks, I'll add you to the list.

    Sorry guys still a few weeks away. Life sometimes has a habit of getting in the way of things and recent events but me back a bit. I'll keep you all updated on a beta release date.
    I'll also update here on significant progress so you know whats going on.

    Thanks.
