Dungeon of the Endless™


A few hundred condemned criminals were being shipped to the Auriga system on board the prison hulk “Success”. While this was presented as a chance to earn back their place in society by working hard for the common good, they understood that in fact they would be slave labour, sent to colonize an unexplored planet. All they knew about Auriga Prime was what the probes told them: it had water, temperate zones, plant life, and plenty of metals in the crust.

In fact, the planet Auriga once hosted a major settlement of the galaxy-travelling ancestors known as the Endless. In addition, the planet was still orbited by a functioning (and well cloaked) defensive system, which sprang eagerly to life upon the arrival of the Success. Within a few minutes, the ship was nothing but a few large chunks of metal falling toward the planet.

Every set of holding cells also functioned as an escape pod, so the ship let itself disintegrate and the surviving prisoners fell bruised but (temporarily) alive and (momentarily) safe to the planet below. Safe, that is, until they realized that they had crashed through some sort of facility of the Endless, down to a sub-basement so deep and ancient it might as well be called a dungeon…

    A stylish, addicting mix of tower defense and roguelike elements. The pacing of the game nicely alternates from planning your defenses in peace to frantically rushing with your heroes and villains to stop the alien swarms coming at you. There could be a bit more variety with the enemies and the modules you can build, but still finding new heroes and opening the new game modes can keep you well occupied. [Feb 2015]

  • An endlessly entertaining and meticulously crafted modern roguelike.

  • One that fans of dungeon crawlers and tower defense games will find has a ton of re-playability.

  • It may not be a perfect experience, but it’s a real blast for anyone who likes these types of games.

  • I liked Dungeon of the Endless a lot, mainly due to the fact that it does pretty much everything right. It has the right balance to allow for longer play sessions once you start getting the hang of it, but it also pays respect to the roguelike elements at its core.

  • Dungeon of the Endless is an addicting turn-based tower-defense that will bring many hours of non-stop random generated dungeon exploring to the player.

  • Spatial puzzles and meticulous optimization tasks go hand in hand with frantic escapes, intense shoot-outs and tense moments of silence. This mix is so engrossing that at first you don’t even notice all these minor annoyances that DotE is rife with. Still, even with them, the game is very enjoyable.

  • It is one of the best strategy roguelike games we've played lately, and we've had a lot of fun doing so. We would've liked a better learning curve, but the challenge is still solid.

  • Dungeon of the Endless may not be perfect but it's brilliant and addictive.

  • Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of its pixels: no individual element of Dungeon of the Endless is especially complicated, but together they form a fiendish and unforgiving challenge.

  • The only real criticism I can think of for Dungeon of the Endless is that it’s difficult. But that’s like criticising FIFA for containing so much football. Difficulty, permanent death and a challenging learning curve are the bread and butter of the entire genre. And it’s a fun genre, if you’ve got the patience to try and try again.

  • Games Master UK

    Fascinating and tense. [Jan 2015, p.82]

  • A roguelike game with tower defense characteristics that is possible to keep you entertained and on the edge for many hours before you manage to succeed in all the 12 floors/dungeons. Consider the beautiful pixel art esthetic a significant bonus to the whole experience.

  • Great mix of genres, which will test your skills more than any other game. Retro visuals suits the game perfectly; user interface and controls are almost flawless. It will die few times at start but once you become familiar with it you won´t quit until you open at least one more room.

  • An interesting mix of RPG, roguelike and tower defense, that will please especially newcomers to the dungeon crawler genre.

  • Dungeon of the Endless is a fun game and a cool experiment: two old concepts meshed into something new.

  • CD-Action

    You will find a lot of fun in this dungeon. Instead of focusing on pretentious story, convoluted mechanics and technical bells and whistles Amplitude Studios delivered fantastic gameplay. [13/2014, p.45]

  • Amplitude's habit of providing interesting background, artistically pleasant environment and technically comfy games will help gamers battle the (good) frustration of the challenge.

  • A fascinating mix of roleplaying, rogue-like dungeon crawler and tower defense, that demands a high frustration threshold.

  • Lots of replay value for a fair price - as long as you can handle a bit of frustration and retro graphics.

  • Dungeon of the Endless pulls from many popular games and genres from the last couple of years, but what's wonderful about it is that all these elements come together to create something entirely new.

  • Dungeon of the Endless is a mix of genres that doesn’t do anything to make life easier for the player, but if you love tough and original challenges in pixel-art, you’ll be satisfied.

  • Dungeon of the Endless lacks that one thing, the element that pushes it over the top into the exceptional.

  • Not quite endless, but some gamers will have fun with it while it lasts.

  • Dungeon of the Endless is an intriguing mix of roguelike dungeon crawler and tower defense. Grab a crew of heroes, defend them with room modules, explore a lost dungeon, and find your way to the end. Like most roguelikes, success in the game is still heavily based on luck, but there's still a lot to love in Dungeon of the Endless.

  • Game World Navigator Magazine

    Tactical and role-playing variety suffers from imperfect system of procedural generation. Lady Luck may start throwing at you rooms where you can’t build anything, or give pitiful amount of energy, or leave you with no way to improve your technologies. It’s like reversed Russian roulette: you get one balanced gaming session per five ridiculously difficult. [Dec 2014, p.95]

  • For hardcore players, Dungeon of the Endless could be the game that will occupy your time and mind for what seems to be... well... endless ages.

  • Great use of lighting effects helps sell the feeling of dread and isolation of the strange world.

  • Dungeon of the Endless is a challenging and rewarding game that allows you to learn and grow with it. The more time you put in, the more enjoyment you will find.
