    The first one regarding increased coins seems worth it... 25% more coins for only a 15% rise in chest requirements is great. I use this pretty much all the time lately.

    Also at least another monster to deal with would be nice in the second level (and then maybe the 3rd)... Something to make it feel different from the first level (besides the background GFX).

    I like the -little- things about this game... Like having a shield ready down below to protect yourself when the screen eventually overflows... and then using at JUST the right time. Too late is a fail but a little too early is also no good as
    when a monster gets a hit on you it wastes your shield.

    Also making sure you always have a powered up shield rune for when the ram eventually shows up... keeping the board clean, etc... a lot of little things like this keep it enjoyable for me.

    I also like the extra work you did on the final death screen... Looks more detailed in the background as the stone walls close.

    Good job.

    Today I'll send new update.

    - New monster ( Gunner ), he is weaker in HP, but has stronger attack. Also he use special ability that "freeze" runes on board. Frozen rune can't be moved or matched. Rune can be unfrozen by tapping on it, this action will take away 1 action point.

    - One of potions in alchemy will be changed on potion that give chance to get back unused runes. Many people know situation when you need to collect for example 12 keys, but you have rune with value of 20 keys.

    - Game center support

    - Bug fixes ( including bug with not allowing to move between completed levels )

    great to hear that a new update is going to be released soon - finally did manage to get to valhalla on the weekend :)

    will there be new upgrades also? i already maxed everything ;)

    one thing: there seems to be a sort of 'elite' enemy that has way more health and deals tons of damage compared to the rest of the enemies. would be nice if they could look a little bit different than the others.

    Looking forward to the next update... Seems to have everything I wanted. #

    I think even in its current state it's a -classic- like Dungelot 1 and 2.

    I was afraid of that :)
    Currently there are no ideas about something new to add. Maybe more monsters, boss, goals.. and if game be successful.

    D2 is a big pain for me. Even if I reconsider there are tons of things that I may rebuild there and again tons of people will be quite unhappy

    I played from release day through all the changes you made, and let me assure you that now you don't need to rebuild anything at all! I think the only issue is that once you level up your characters and get all the haul and beat all the bosses, you run out of motivation to play except for how deep you can run. Other than that, you fixed everything.
    All you would need is a new dungeon or two to make it feel complete (so it doesn't say "in development" like a tease:) and then maybe I would keep bosses in there every so often for the challenge. Possibly a few new monster varieties just for the heck of it and you have yourself a perfect game.
    It's my all time favorite, seriously. I hope you go back to it.

    You speak as a player that liked the game but majority don't. Just imagine that FREE D2 game was downloaded less than PAID D1. Issues remained.

    I am confident that if a "new" player were to download it now unaware of any bugs you had previously, he or she would love it. People may have been dramatic and frustrated about the issues the game had but like I said, that's all over and now the game is worth keeping alive.
    There are millions of one-tap games out there, but none like yours. After all that work you did to fix it, why give up on it now that it's where it should be?
    Plus, the game got really good reviews for the newest updated versions as far as I could tell and, like some political scandal, people will forget about it and enjoy it for what it is.
    I wish I could rally enough supporters to convince you that a new update would bring much needed attention back to this game. It surpasses the first one in every way.

    All I hope for is one last update at least to "finish" this game before you tackle your next project.

    Any TA'ers reading this, please let me know if you agree!

    I agree. Dungelot 2 in its current form is very enjoyable.

    Oh man, I play the vikings journey like two-three hours every day. Really addicted. Hate the slow upgrade, but not complaining ;) I like the concept and core gameplay.
