Hey Gamers,

I have been watching many of the 8-bit type games appearing on Steam. I have picked up a few like Steam Marines and then I met Dungeon of the Endless™. The story starts as soon as you pick your characters. You’re limited to a pick of 2 slots but if you can survive in the dungeons then you will have the option to recruit 2 more characters for a party of 4.

Your ship crash lands on a planet and you are forced to move through the dungeon by opening doors. This my friends is what I think adds to the addiction of this game. It’s like the Price is Right, you never know what could be behind the next door. Opening doors in this game leads to either fortune found or monsters ready to eat you!

The object of the game is to gather dust by opening doors and using that dust to power a room. When a room is powered then monsters cannot spawn in that room and deploying turrets is now an option. Deploying turrets is something you need to get familiar with if you want to survive and go to the next level. So, the rest of the game is powering the rooms in search of the elevator room. This is the room that will advance you to the next floor a.k.a Dungeon. Once you’re ready to move to the next floor then you will want to get your fastest runner to pick up the crystal and run like a hyena to the elevator room. Once the crystal is picked up then all the monsters will start uber spawning on your location. Remember the turrets? This is when they really shine. I will not go any further as I hope you get the idea by now about this game.

It’s like the Price is Right, you never know what could be behind the next door.

The story is great and really gets interesting the further you go. The graphics are what you could expect for this type of game. There is a lot of color in this game and some really nifty animations by the characters. The game play is like watching a soap opera of your character and once dead is dead! So you have to be careful when trying to keep them alive. The music and sound fx really shine especially when you pick the crystal up and make a run to the elevator. I would say the replay value is solid. Replay value is very important because not many games can brag about this part. The more you play this game, the better it gets.

Pick this one up and be sure to get the crystal edition!

Game on!
