Top Critic Average
Devious Dungeon is a simplistic action platformer that is entertaining to play. The combat is easy to learn but you still need to be careful of enemy attacks. The step-by-step equipment purchases is a bit of a bummer though.
Devious Dungeon is a nice translation of a simplistic mobile game to the world of consoles. It plays surprisingly nice, is quite fun, but what makes it great also hinders it. It's sprite based 2D game controlled with four buttons that can bi addictive, making us play one more level, but when it looses our focus, there's no going back to it.

Final thoughts? Well worth the small investment if you want a game to play through without a huge challenge and doesn’t need a huge amount of time pouring into it, really enjoyed my time with it.
Devious Dungeon thus ends up being a very unremarkable game without any features that could keep the players interested for more than a few minutes.

As I said before, Devious Dungeon is a very addictive game that I'm sure you're going to love. It's very fun to play, looks great, has more than enough content for its asking price, is a cross-buy PS4 and PS Vita release and it offers you a chance to get a double Platinum, so you're getting quite the bargain!
Devious Dungeon is a weird combination of classical Roguelike mechanical elements and attempts to make the genre more accessible. Unfortunately, it’s a mix that results in a shallow, monotonous procedural platformer that might as well not be a roguelite at all. Visually pleasant but uninspired with fast paced combat that gets boring very quickly, Devious Dungeon is a game that I can only recommend to trophy hunters thanks to the easy Platinum on offer.
Devious Dungeon is a solidly built game with a downright ingenious combat system, where the developer has used the retro-styled limitations to their advantage. It struggles in the RPG department, giving players little-to-no reason to care about any of the events, and offering barebones levelling and equipment.
The highest praise and most damning criticism I can give Devious Dungeon is that it is functional and something I could burn time with at a doctor's office or in a plane. With the consistent stream of games coming to the Switch, you're better off waiting to see if one of its better contemporaries gets released.
Devious Dungeon is a rogue-lite-lite game. It has many traits from other rouge-lite games, such as Rogue Legacy, but some of the mechanics are watered down to a point where the game feels easy and more accessible for players new to the genre. With it's great attention to detail as your character changes his look as you buy new gear, to the randomly generated levels which are full of secrets and fiendish beings, every level feels fresh and new – even if you replay the same level. You must be warned though, Devious Dungeon is super addictive so you may end up playing for hours and not even realising it!
