    Amazing I feel the best part about this game was that it is not addicting. It's fun. The two words have a difference. I actively want to play pixel dungeon. Yet games like coc basically force you to come back, and then leave right away. My only complaint is of how it isn't super balanced, where most playthroughs you have no chance, and some you get a lightning wand in the first room you find. Other than that, pixel dungeon is a fun game definitely worth trying out. Full Review

    Fantastic! Pixel Dungeon is one of the best mobile games I've played! It has beautiful retro aesthetics, and very well designed roguelike gameplay! The masterful use of procedural generation blows the replay value through the roof, and did I mention that this great game is completely free? That's right. Completely. No upfront price, and no ingame purchases. None of that. You are given the option to donate $5, but that's it! Full Review

    Introduced me to the roguelike genre I've had this game since 2013 and it's really come a long way. This is one of the few completely free games (no ads!) that are both professional and enjoyable. Thanks to the developer for not only making a great game but also making it open source for the modding community. I check in every once in a while looking for fresh iterations Full Review

    One of my favorite rogue-likes of all time! Great gameplay, lots of different scenarios, no dungeon is ever the same! Great graphics! All you rogue-like fans, this game is a must have! Keep up the good work on this excellent game! *Edit* I did find a bug with the shop. When I made it to the shop It was much smaller than usual, and without a shopkeeper. Due to lack of a shopkeeper, I was able to pick up everything, free of charge. I'm guessing this wasn't meant to happen. Full Review

    Wow. This game just... Blows my mind. Among one of the best apps I've ever played. and its for free, too! Pixel dungeon is a very well made dungeon crawler game. And don't even get me started on the difficulty. Getting through 25 floors without dying once? Piece of cake! Full Review

    Love this game. Highly addictive and entertaining. Enough items, monsters, levels and challenges to keep me playing for hours at a time. I'm very excited to also try the other variations after this one. I absolutley would recommend this to anyone, whether you just want to have little fun while you kill some time or immerse yourself and master the dungeon and all its mysteries. Very confident in my rating of 10/10 Full Review

    Awesome First time I best was 100+ tries. 2nd time 200 tries. Now I can take up my phone and just make and complete a game in a few hours. Love the challenges which force you to think outside the box. Also,for people who claim that it's all luck,keep in mind that you can get extremely low luck and still win. Yup,game takes knowledge AND skill. Don't say that its 100% luck. Full Review

    Amazingly Fun and Challenging Game! If you like roguelikes then this game is a must-have for you. There are a ton of interlocking mechanics that make this game very unique. As the description states, this game is very difficult and luck-based. I have never won a single run yet although I've played over 100 games; I barely made it to the final boss once on my best run. To succeed in Pixel Dungeon you'll need a decent understanding of the game's mechanics, good resource management, and luck. All in all, this game is amazing! Can only recommend! Full Review

    Deceptively Simple Seems like a simple bit of shovelware, but don't let the crude graphics fool you. This is one tough roguelike game. Under the primitive veneer is a sophisticated Dungeon crawler. Seems to have randomized levels as each time I die (and you will die in this game) and start over, the levels are different. Possibly the best free game on Google play. It runs solid on my Android 4.4.1 running tablet too. No problems with it so far. Full Review

    A challenging, pixelated master piece. I have always been a fan of pixelated style games, and more so for dungeon RPG exploration type ones. Pixel Dungeon blends all my favorite flavors together quite perfectly to create a simple yet challenging, risk-taking, and loot finding game, that has striped me countless hours, and turned it into rage hard fun. This is one of the best yet simple games I've played so far. Much love for this game and it's awesome developers, hope to see more updates with tons of new stuff if possible. 😊 p.s. it's on PC too Full Review

    well balanced and ruthless! it's got the proper difficulty of a classic roguelike with a delicious modern twist. the music is perfect. I haven't made it past the ooze yet so im not sure if it's just the one track but after a little over an hour im not sick of the loop yet. very attractive graphics. simple yet incredibly satisfying. any classic roguelike fan would get a kick out of this. keep up the good work man!

    Most "Rogue like" of roguelikes As an avid player of the original ASCII graphic game Rogue by Michael Toy and Glenn Wichman, I think it's safe to say that Pixel Dungeon is more of a Rogue clone than a roguelike. That's a good thing though because everything that made the original compelling is here as well. For anyone that ever enjoyed the original Rogue game or similar games like Nethack should try this game. Full Review

    I love PD! Welcome to pixle dungeon an amazing game which can keep you busy for hours. I'm not going to spoil the game if your new but I'll just say, SPOILER WARNING the sacrificial flame (or whatever that is) is an awesome feature, probably my favorite so far! Now that's out of the way, please if your reading this watabow (I can't remember your name ever sorry!) Here's something all of my friends want out of pixle dungeon, 1.Thirst. 2.a new class 3. Infinite dungeon 4.more potions/scrolls. Thank you for a good game Full Review

    Overall addictive First things first: if you find a way to conserve food, take it. Sometimes you will be spending a long time on a floor and starving is a common death. (Also, go to settings and activate second quickslot) This game is very fun, being able to drag you in for a hour at a time. But, thanks to it saving every move you make, you can stop at any time. There's a massive level of customization in playstyle. Full Review

    For challenge seekers only Those who like spending hours running into solid walls just to make a little more progress will LOVE it. Not a casual game. This one of the most faithful rogue style games I have ever played. Plays smoothly, though it doesn't hold your hand at all. Full Review

    I'm surprised that this game is this fun. Already finished this game 3 times now, each with different subjob. one of the best rogue-like i ever tried since castle of the winds. Replay value is huge because your item build, the dungeon, and your luck will never same, also there is a badge and challenge system. the number of job and mastery is also pretty balanced. The only thing I annoyed at this game is the equipment detoration feature :/ Full Review

    Simply entertainment Wonderful game. I am interrupted in 5 minute increments daily. I can play this in my down time, yet drop it instantly and come back to it. Game is turn based, so I don't have to worry about my character. Yes it's extremely hard and I die often. I rarely get a character past level 5. I love it. Each new game is literally new, and who knows what will happen? I have come up empty and died on the first level, but I've also found awesome items early on and gone on to win the game. Full Review

    Deceptively simple and hugely playable. Just beware that this game is merciless: a single mistake, or even just a single stroke of bad luck, and you are history. No saving your progress or helping hand here. As an added bonus this game is truly free to play. No in-game purchase of any kind to bother you or to offer an easy way out of a tricky situation. Just a very unobtrusive button to donate. Kudos to the developers for a job well done. Full Review

    This game is very addicting to play. It's great for passing time too. The only issue I have is that there is never enough food!!!! There's normally at least one piece of food in each level, but that's not enough!!! I can not tell you how many times I've starved to death when I had amazing weapons and armor. It's ridiculous! If the developers could add more food to the game, it would an amazing game!! Full Review

    Wong Leon Kai Published date: December 23, 2015

    Simple and challenging Pretty hard, as I only made it to Level 5 about 4 or 5 times after a week of downloading it, but I just like the simpleness of the game. The controls are easy to follow, unlike other games where you have to use some complex joystick thing. And the scrolls and the potions are pretty simple to guess of their effects just by looking at the names. And since every game is different, every game I play will always keep me hooked and ready to kick some rat butt. Full Review

    Daymusik Published date: February 29, 2016

    Cool, but... Quick question: Are all of the scrolls SUPPOSED to be randomized? It makes writing them down trying to know which one does what very frustrating. Especially if you're going to give each one their own names and glyphs. I'd like to eventually be like "Oh, cool, 'MANNAZ', I needed to enchant this scale armor..." BUT THEY'RE ALWAYS DIFFERENT unless I'm just not that observant...though my list has a bunch of erase marks on it... Full Review

    Echo Hikaru Published date: September 16, 2016

    Really great but... The areas are just tooo hardvas it continued. I died like 40 times before killing the first boss. And when I got a great equipment I was like "i'm not going to die" then in the end of a large room filled with plants, a fire elemental came... well there goes the equipment... Full Review

    Possibly the best Rogue-like game ever This game is the best of any rogue-like game, very hard, all strategy, infinitely playable so simple but so complex at the same time. A must play for anyone who loves RPG games but have patience! You won't even beat the first boss without dying 20+ times first, its just the nature of the game. Easily a 5 star rating EDIT: still the greatest game I've played on my phone. Beaten two characters, two to go. The degradation feature really sucks though, I wish it was optional. Full Review

    PD has gotten easier New patches involve new ways to kill your way through the dungeon but monsters remain the same. "Scroll of wipe out" shouldn't exist... I understand that these changes make playing more enjoyable for beginners but they affect the lategame way too much. Full Review

    Aidan Marr Published date: February 8, 2016

    Awesome game Everything about pixel dungeon is so awesome. It's deadly punishing, but it makes it that much more rewarding to beat the game. You have to be really careful with what you're given - every item down to the last dewdrop counts! - and in the deeper you go the more strategic you have to be. Thanks for making such an amazing experience, and happy dungeon crawling! Full Review

    I'm impressed Excellent graphics, spectacular gameplay, even the music is great! It has a eerie feel to it that keeps you wondering what's next? I'm amazed that such a great game doesn't have more downloads! Encore! Haha, it's made even more challenging by the fact that, if you die it's game over. The lack of save is a surprising twist, that makes you even more determined to win! Full Review

    Space Published date: July 30, 2016

    A fun,addictive game. But, the gameplay is too short. If you encounter a wraith, all you see is 'wraith evaded you!' when you try and hit it. The game is beatifull and mystical, but as soon as you find something cool, like an enchanted battleaxe, potion,ect, don't expect to have it for long. But the game is free, and the only purchase is a donation, unlike most apps that pressure you into buying powerups, ect with money. Full Review

    Published date: December 6, 2015

    Fun and addictive The game is fun and addictive to play to see how far you can get before you die. There is a large amount of luck involved in my opinion due to random item spawn. However, this is part of what makes it so challenging. If you were guaranteed things it wouldn't hold the same amount of interest. Full Review

    The best around... Honestly, out of all the app games I've ever downloaded (over a 4 year span) this one holds and retains the highest pedistal. No ads, no weird interfaces. Just old school Rogue-like RPG awesomeness. It's quite a challenge though. Expect to fail and die and start over A LOT Full Review

    I thought I would never see a free game on Google play that doesn't contain ads! This game is super hard and it will require a lot of trial and error. Truly an amazing roguelike with nice pixel graphics! I regret not giving this 5 stars when I downloaded it years ago. If you love hard dungeon crawler game's then this is definitely worth your time!

    I would have given this 5 stars had I reviewed it prior to item durability being introduced. This is a great example of an extremely gifted programmer who is an absolute moron when it comes to actual game mechanics. I had a +6 Ring of Evasion and a +7 Warhammer, and no way to repair either one, so I died. What a bunch of fun. Full Review

    Kishan Lander Published date: January 2, 2018

    Great idea lacking on design. A good retro style rouge like rpg that has as much style as it does heart. Infinite replayability backed up by simple but fun design. However some design elements are really poor such as complete lack of ui scaling in portrait mode and the obscene difficulty past level 20. Great idea better executed by every other pixel dungeon game version. Try out once but I recommend afterwards you try the other much better version to suit your tastes. Full Review

    I had alot of fun playing this game, incredibly challanging at parts but has all the items, spells, and adventure elements to simulate an amazing dungeon crawler. Maybe add a little tutorial as I found some things confusing but once I figured out the items and abilities I spent hours playing this game. Highly recommended! :) Full Review

    Loved it... A few suggestions... Try making this... Plz remove the item degrading features... It's kinda Annoying... That's all... Also I would not kill you even if u add some adds. Make it so that u get enough money to keep updating and donations remove adds. That would surely help u bring more content. But don't do too much adds. Just the right amount.... :) Full Review

    I Love Everything About This Game This is how a mobile game should be done. The interface is perfect, the graphics are great to look at, and (most importantly) the gameplay is unmatched by any other mobile game, free or paid. It is deceptively rich, and becomes more intriguing with each new run. Frustrating and difficult, but so addictive and shrouded in mystique that it's impossible to put down. Full Review

    Isai Baez Published date: March 21, 2016

    A hidden gem, a game true to itself and what it wants to be played as. It's loads of fun! The game at first was extremely difficult. It had me dying at floor 3 every time. Although I died a lot I was determined to reach at least the first boss...eventually I did, but I was completely destroyed in the first few moves. I realized something after a few more tries, that I had learned new skills I could use in each new playthrough, I saw that I was progressing as a player, not my character. this is genius, the player is the one gaining experience, becoming a better dungeon crawler by mind, not XP.

You die so much but you always come back for more. Please make another with a story mode or something please. You creators have such a great thing going here. Full Review
