I recently started sorting my games to choose my top 50 and sell or trade off the rest, and this one is definitely a keeper. The astute reader may have noticed that I did not describe how I played Dungeon Plungin’ with anyone else I’m pretty sure some relatively stupid readers have noticed the same thing, and now they think they’re astute. This is a lot of work.
Thanks for the review. There are goblins, orcs, skeletons, zombies, wraiths, demons, dire bunnies and flying monkeys. The beginning of a dungeon can seem a little simple sometimes, because your heroes are going to act before the monsters, and every monster seems to have a double major in falling down and crying.
Like if we compare Dungeon Plungin’ to Warhammer Quest, and we’re talking about how you figure out where stuff is at, Warhammer Quest would be a lear jet, and Dungeon Plungin’ is a boxy antique Land Rover. I’m basically a game mercenary. If a game is free on the ol’ Interweb, I tend to think that’s because it’s not good enough to ask money for it.
There’s no way Dungeon Plungin’ is the only free game that’s this much fun. You can play with up to four people, but since dungeon creation is random and monsters are ruled by laws that determine how they react to you, you don’t actually need a referee or bad guy player or dungeon dude or whatever else – you can do it all by yourself.
It might not take you three weeks to put together this set. I may have to reconsider my stance on free games, to be honest. You roll for each monster to figure out where it’s at.
Drake’s Flames: Dungeon Game Review – Dungeon Plungin’
Dunegon as you can see because you’re reading the review right nowI changed my mind. It helps that I couldn’t sell it if I wanted to, but if it was a collector’s item and I could get huge bank notes for it by selling the different pieces in separate bids like some sort of scalper eBay scab, I would still keep it.
And the miniatures have to be glued together and cut out. If plungn game is already free, I don’t need to write about it to get a copy, do I?
Most monsters only have one life, so they’re going to drop pretty quick, especially if you can roll a lot of dice like my pit fighter. Fail, and you can stand there looking like a bad David Ddungeon impersonator.
I’m going to write more spells dungeom my fire mage to learn, and invent some weapons for my pit dugeon to swing. You’ll have to use a little tactical planning to maximize your ability plunngin kill the monsters in a hurry, because while my pit fighter is one bad-ass, weapon swinging, mean motor scooter, he’s a target waiting to happen.
You might have some free time, and you might also not be quite as anal retentive about game pieces as I am. Cons Block out a few weeks to build everything Rules are not very well organized or laid out Art style is very cartoony, which might turn off some potential fans but I love it You can’t buy Dungeon Plungin’, but you can go right here and download it: Print n’ play games are a freaking beating.
Plus I’m a grownup, and don’t have eight hours a day to spend with a can of spray mount and a sheet of foamcore. There are a few reasons ;lungin this: I’m incredibly glad I did.
But there aren’t any plungiin, or rat men, or owl-headed bears or minotaurs, and frankly, I wanted more. And then I’m going to go to the Oversoul Games forums and show them off, and ask for input, and see if all my ideas totally suck, and then use them anyway. I made a warrior priest, a shadow thief, a fire mage and a pit fighter in about 45 minutes, and they’re each more-or-less thematic – the warrior priest can heal and swing a sledge hammer, the shadow thief has spells that let him detect traps, the pit fighter swings two weapons, and the fire mage Happily, when it comes to beating things to death, Dungeon Plungin’ actually improves on Warhammer Quest.
July 4, at Then my fire mage needs to chuck a few fireballs, and if there’s anyone left standing hopefully all alone in a corner somewheremy shadow thief can run in and poke their eyes out. So this is where the real beauty of the free downloadable game comes into play – if there’s something sungeon want, you can make it.
Succeed, and you can drop flaming pain all over your opponents. Yes, there are lots of tables, and yes, the rules are poorly edited and horrifyingly unattractive. Before I was able to find out how fun Dungeon Plungin’ is, though, I had to put it together – and this is where I started paying for my free game.
Who has time for that? Magic also works really well. So after I reviewed Warhammer Quest and a reader asked me to review Dungeon Plungin’, my first gut reaction was a big fat, ‘oh, hell no.
I have a job, and a family, and a fairly busy company on the side, and I write this site, and I pick up freelance work now and then, and on occasion, I even like to sleep a little. I’m going to go for it, now.
I could have used a few more hero figures. So I need to get him in position to deal out some pain, and then get my warrior priest up there to block for him so that the monsters don’t rip out his spleen.
Spells have difficulties, and you have to roll your magic dice to beat the difficulty to cast the spell. The only drawback is that the miniatures you get don’t include a two-fisted gladiator or a holy brawler with a warhammer, so my warrior priest uses the miniature that has a battle dugeon and my two-fisted dungeo fighter dungeno a shield. You roll to see if the door is locked, then you roll to see if it’s trapped. I wanted to see if this game was going to be worth the time and toner investment.
But if I’m going to play a dungeon game, I want it to be pretty.
