Dungeon Raid is a puzzle RPG, a blend of puzzle game with roleplaying mechanics. Your mission is to trace a path through a set of matching tiles, but watch out you may be attacked by enemies who improve as fast as you do.

As you go, the object is to collect as many resources as you can, like gold and experience. Get enough points and you can buy or upgrade equipment and level up. All the while, remember to avoid those nasty enemy skull tiles and fight them off for as long as you possibly can. And don't get too greedy, or you risk being overwhelmed!

The higher you go in a Dungeon Raid game, the more strategy youre going to need to match a greater number of tiles, grab bonuses and stay ahead of those evil adversaries. Never forget that they improve as the game continues.

Keep your wits about you as you play Dungeon Raid. As you level up, there are many trade offs to consider and complimentary combinations of skills to be chosen. If youre not used to the tense pace of the higher levels, go ahead and start on easy difficulty. That gives you the chance to play the game in a more relaxed way, and watch how powerful your avatar can become.

Regardless of your skill level, youll never get bored with Dungeon Raid because theres so much going on! There are hundreds of items to collect, a growing list of character skills and many different strategies for you to use. Youll be itching to play just one more turn, just one more game for hours and days on end.

Features:
4 difficulty levels: select a relaxing easy game or go for a challenging and strategic experience
2 challenge modes
400+ unique items to buy and upgrade
77 achievements to unlock
40 diverse abilities to help you and hinder your enemies
30 special monsters to defeat
20 powerful upgrades to apply to your items
10 character classes to unlock & customise
Level up and improve your avatar as you kill enemies and collect experience points
Global leaderboards using Game Center & OpenFeint
Play your own music during the game
Constant save system: quit the game and return to it at any time

If you want the thrill of playing a truly exciting game, youve come to the perfect place. Download Dungeon Raid now and prepare to be impressed!

Thank you very much for the detailed impressions.
Seems very interesting.
There is something I did not understand...do you explore anything (like in a roguelike)?
Or the screenshots above are the only screens you see during a game?
It's like....tetris? You start and go on on the 'same' screen till you die?

Yes, there is no exploring or any other viewpoint; (at least that I have seen) the game is played out on the puzzle board until you run out of hit points.

I just asked the developer why he pulled it and when we might hope to see it again.

Hopefully he can drop by here and tell us.

I wonder what it is. I've completed three games so far without a problem.

I don't know but there's an update that was already submitted that fixes it, the new fixed version should be out within the next few days according to the dev.

Hi guys, I'm the developer, the updated game's back in the store. Thanks for posting your impressions, Gabrien, a lot of care's been taken to playtest and polish the game and I'm glad that it shows.

Global leaderboards is definitely one of the things I plan to add in if there's interest, but I'd love to hear any other suggestions you have.

And I'd appreciate any positive or negative feedback from anyone else playing, hopefully I can fix any negatives and improve the game for everyone.
