Gameloft has absolutely killed it with Dungeon Hunter 4. This game is console quality and available free for iOS and Android devices.
However, the game’s amazing graphics and slick gameplay does come at a different price, space. Dungeon Hunter comes in at over 800 mg in size, making it a hefty download for anyone with an 8 or 16 gig device.
Player start off with two character slots and can choose from four classes: Battleworn, Blademaster, Warmage and Sentinel. Additional character slots can be purchased with gems. Once a class has been chosen, players are dropped headfirst into battle. Dungeon Hunter 4 is a hack’n’slash, with a familiar top-down view.
Characters move around using a directional pad located on the left of the screen. The right side of the screen is dedicated to attack buttons, which can be changed out depending on the skill set the player chooses.
Dungeon Hunter launched with over 30 dungeons and Gameloft has constantly been adding new content. This includes new dungeons, guilds, corresponding guild quests and much more.
Unfortunately Dungeon Hunter is best suited to tablets as the gameplay is rather small and the text even smaller, to the point where it is almost impossible to read on a smart phone.
Despite some small quibbles, Dungeon Hunter 4 is worth the download for any dungeon crawler fan. Great gameplay and stunning visuals make it a home run.
