Dungeons 2 PC Game
The Dungeon Lord is back – and this time he’s serious! In Dungeons 2, fulfil the Dungeon Lord’s insatiable quest for vengeance by recruiting fearsome new monsters from all corners of the underworld in order to undertake his evil bidding. Taking over the underworld isn’t enough though – this time The Dungeon Lord will extend his dominion over the puny humans and attempt to conquer the overworld too!
Take control of the mighty Dungeon Lord and craft a network of unique and terrifying dungeons, recruit an army of fearsome creatures and command two new factions. Prepare to defend your Kingdom against those pesky heroes, go above ground to wage war on their human cities and use the ‘Hand of Terror’ to take direct control over your minions, issue commands, and even dish out a swift slap to keep them in line.
The extensive campaign story mode is packed with even more of the dark humour which made the original Dungeons a hit and is peppered with numerous references to various fantasy books, movies and TV shows. Additionally, you can test your strength in four different game modes in multiplayer for up to four players with other Dungeon Lords over LAN or online.
Dungeons 2 has something of a head start, since it’s a sequel to a 2011 game that sadly failed to live up to its promise. The original Dungeons took obvious inspiration from Bullfrog’s classic, but added a weird twist: you weren’t trying to kill the adventurers who ventured into your lair, but to keep them challenged and thrilled long enough to build up their soul force, which you could them harvest in order to level up your traps and creatures.
It was a nice concept, sloppily executed, but it’s been completely abandoned for the sequel. The result is a game that is much closer in style to Dungeon Keeper, yet still has a few new twists of its own.
The core gameplay is now more familiar than ever. You start with a throne room, a pit from which you can summon creatures (and into which you can dispose of them, should you wish) and a map filled with earthen walls and seams of gold ready to be mined out. Set your minions – called Little Snots – to work, and slap them with a right click to motivate them. Clear a room-sized space, choose what you’d like to build there and start to craft the perfect lair.
