Engage in a journey through Lloyd's dreams.

If you've never played a Dungeons game before... firstly you're in for a treat. But, more importantly, you might need to search online for tutorial videos if you really want to work out what you need to do. Despite playing the previous game in the serious, I found the opening tutorial to be unintuitive. I had my dungeon, and list of simple quests, but there was no real explanation of what I was supposed to do.

However, there are hints and once you know the basics everything slowly slots into place. And, as you complete the current list of tasks new ones are revealed. Before you know it, you're mastering the game without realising it.

Engage in a journey through Lloyd's dreams.

Whilst your dungeon is where you'll spend most of the time collecting resources and building new rooms and areas, you'll need to keep an eye on the outside world too. Adventurers, lured by the tales of your dungeon's vast gold reserves, will attempt to break in and steal from you. And you can also venture outside to collect further resources.

The graphics, vocal acting and story based cut sequences are all well realised, making this a compelling game that you'll sink many weeks and months into.
