Do you mean Catacombs?

It's Gauntlet with dual-stick shooter controls.

Very well polished, but grinding through enemies, mostly. It's an OK game for a buck.

For a buck it's worth it, but only if you like shooters a lot. The levels are really repetative and for the majority of the game all you're doing is blasting skeletons. The levels don't have any interesting areas or anything. BUT, that being said, the graphics are very nice. If you like dual stick shooters than this game is enjoyable. The first map (dungeons) has 24 levels, and you can buy another map (forest) for another buck, which has another 24 levels.

Playing! MC2: Black Pegasus, Super Mega Worm, Parachute Panic, Fruit Ninja, Sonic 4, Reckless Racing, Samurai II: Vengence

-repetitive as hell
-only comes with 24 dungeons=less than an hour's gameplay
-0.99 for another 24 levels
-level cap at 15
-one special ability
-3 classes do the exact same thing
-the monsters are retarded and present negative challenge, per say

no.

Let me correct you : the 3 classes are not the same, hell no! And for a Gauntlet fan like me, this game really worth the buck, and I bought the DLC too, so the Dev could add more things to the game. This game is really a good clone, but needs some more thing to be added, which the dev already know what to add and a first update is on the way! So yes, buy it, it's a nice game but needs more!

Ok, so a while ago we were discussing what app to build next. One team member jokingly said, "hey let's make an app where you build a taco then eat it." ...at least I think he was joking.
