Dungeon Hero (Steam VR)
Intro: If you love other role-playing games like Dungeon Master, Eye of the Beholder and Legend of Grimrock, then you will love this game too! Compared to others, Dungeon Hero is more on a Cartoony/Casual side. In the Game you will find that certain elements, such as some Characters / Pets / Dungeon Skins, can be unlocked with Gems. You can get those Gems for free as a Daily Bonus or get them by completing Dungeons.
Review: Dungeon Hero is your classic D&D style Dungeon game, only it is filled with comedy cartoon characters which gives this game some much-needed smiles. It certainly has all the hallmarks for a good D&D game with 26 heroes to choose from, 12 pets, 130+ monsters to battle and well over 1000 unique items to be found while exploring. All done played with a custom designed or randomly generated Dungeon maze. No two games will ever be the same giving it great replay value. The game includes a 16 level, well-crafted dungeon filled with puzzles, monsters and treasures, but it will probably only take a few hours to complete.
While playing you gain any number of dropped weapons and armour, and no matter what character you take, you are free to equip anything you want. The problem with this is that every character roughly plays exactly the same way making little need to unlock other adventurer types. As you progress through the dungeons you find higher and higher levelled equipment. When you start new dungeons you find equipment based off of your current level or equipment stats.
Verdict: The cartoon style graphics certainly made me smile about this game, but sadly that was just about the only thing that did make me smile. Sadly the main reason we are reviewing it (which is the VR aspect) is pretty much unplayable because it is little more than an add-on rather than being made for VR. Having said all that, playing this game on a normal 2D screen I can easily see why some D&D fans have made it their home, it is perfect for immersing yourself in the Dungeon experience. But in VR that same dungeon is pure torture for the eyes.
