Dungelot by Red Winter Software is my new bathroom buddy [VIDEO]

Sometimes you come across a game from the Google Play Store that really takes you by surprise. This was exactly my experience while perusing the Play Store’s latest Android games, then deciding to give Dungelot by Red Winter Software a download. Honestly, I didn’t think much of the game. Sure the art style looked fun and immediately brought back memories of Braveheart (one of my top 5 favorite Android games from yesteryear), but Dungelot was an entirely different horse.

You’d have a hard time finding a box to put Dungelot into. The game plays like a combination of minesweeper mixed with rougue-like dungeon crawling RPG. Personally, I love mashup genres and dived in head first. What I found was a surprisingly light — yet strategic — casual Android game perfect for sitting through movie trailers, waiting at the DMV, or any activity in need of time killing. Watch my hands-on video (above) for a complete walkthrough of Dungelot.

Now, I invite you to simply give the game a download for yourself. There’s a free Dungelot Lite version currently available in the Google Play Store and should you decide you want the full version of the game, it’s only a paltry $.99 cents. Nothing to lose, and you might find Dungelot your next go-to game for those quick (or long) bathroom breaks. Just don’t forget to windex your phone after. Cheers.

          :D

    Purchased! Thanks Chris. I’m also a bit fan of Battleheart (not Braveheart, like you mentioned in the article…)

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      Oops. BATTLEHEART. Freudian slip :p

    • portezbie

      If you liked battleheart you should probably check out nun attack as well, it’s basically a clone with a nun theme. I didn’t really like it but it’s worth checking out.

      Also check out Paladog. Totally different game, but I think if you like one you may like the other.

  • portezbie

    It’s a great game with a lot of potential but it still needs work. The most recent update added a lot of great features but broke the balance and now it’s rather easy. The developer seems pretty committed though so I am confident it will only keep getting better.

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      Yeah, they’ve been actively working on it which is one of the reasons I’m going to stick with it. When it comes to RPG’s, I like unforgiving, brutally hard difficulty :)

      Can’t wait for further updates.

      • portezbie

        Agreed. The last update gave me faith that the developer is going to keep making this game better and better. As is, it’s a steal at 99 cents

        For anyone who enjoys the game I also recommend puzzlequest 2 and dungeon raid for android. Puzzle Quest 1 is better than 2 but unfortunately 2 is all that’s available for android.

        Dungeon Raid is similar to Dungelot but with a bejeweled element.

        • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

          Interesting. Already have PQ2 but I’ll give Dungeon Raid a shot. Thanks! :)

          • portezbie

            and true to form, Dungelot released another update today.

  • Robert Manser

    cool

  • portezbie

    For all the rpg fans here, also check out Dungeon Quest. It gets repetitive after a while, but it’s free and a very fun hack ‘n slash rpg.

    Addicting game…can’t put it down! :D

  • Eric Bonney

    Saw this article last night and downloaded the lite version, played it while watching some basketball games and loved it! Going to purchase the paid version if for no other reason than to support the developer. I am a developer myself and I have purchased more than a few games to support development even when I haven’t played the game that much. This one is quick, easy and very addicting. Thanks for the article and the suggestion!

    Bathroom Buddy… Dung-a-lot…

    :-D~~~~~

  • Robert Manser

    I need a bathroom app or game.

  • Robabobbob

    I’m going to spending a lot more time in the bathroom now :)

      *high fives*

  • Andy Button

    …aaaaand just like that, there goes my life. For anyone with very poor self-discipline (such as myself) I would recommend that you DON’T download this game. It is dangerously addictive and a game can last for hours! Highly enjoyable, thanks for the heads up Chris :-)

  • Ken Bosse

    Just glad the video wasn’t actually taken in the bathroom
