Dungeonism is a new addition to the App Store that offers players a "turn-and-tile-based" dungeon crawling experience. It's a colorful, cute app for the iPhone and iPod touch, and can be downloaded for $1.99. In the game, players must work through a number of engaging dungeon levels. Characters can be moved by touching and tapping on an iDevice's screen, though it's possible to advance through three tiles only at at time. While moving through dungeons, players will encounter a number of different monsters, and these can be killed either through the use of physical weapons (such as swords and arrows), or through spells, which may be learned as users progress. After completing a round, players can then upgrade aspects of their character before moving on to the next level. As developer Jeffrey Fal explains in the app's release notes:
Taking equal inspiration from Pac-Man and Temple of Apshai, Dungeonism combines the strategies of turn-based RPGs and tile-based arcade games into a single unique gameplay style. It is engrossing enough to be played for hours, but its turn-based rhythm makes it easy to play in short bursts.For more information on the application, check out the below gameplay trailer. As mentioned, Dungeonism can be downloaded in the App Store for $1.99, and is optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsmd8dXi8Wc
