[HOW TO PLAY]
To clear a floor of a dungeon, use your controller or finger to draw a path to guide the Hero between the entrance and the exit. Use healing items and attack or defense spells with proper timing to keep the Hero alive and fighting! Clear all floors of a dungeon to get treasure! Clear all floors with a path covering every square to get a perfect bonus! Each 5x5 floor is packed with treasures, traps, monsters, items, and surprises!
Keiichi Sugiyama’s unique mix of chiptunes and humming compliments Yamada’s retro-themed world perfectly!
He is joined by Enka BOSSA’s founder and singer, Caorinho Fujiwara, who composed the Japanese theme song “Gyakkou Zinsei” (Life Against the Tide) and mystery singer Nagasa Bonus, whose smooth voice flows over the chiptunes of the English version’s theme song ”Retrograde life”.
[New Trailer] Dandy Dungeon ~Legend of Brave Yamada~ for Nintendo Switch
Dandy Dungeon ~Legend of Brave Yamada~
While a little reliant on grinding near the end, Dandy Dungeon: Legend of Brave Yamada is a delightful little tongue-in-cheek RPG with a little heart and a lot of laughs. Its simple yet engrossing gameplay system mixed with fun puzzle mechanics and cute presentation make this a wonderful Switch title to play on the go.
Having shaken off the free-to-play nature of its origins – Yamada had a set amount of stamina on mobile, meaning he could only code his game for a certain amount of time each day – Dandy Dungeon embraces all of the brilliant little quirks that make it a great game in its own right.
When story, mechanics and general weirdness and humor are taken all together it adds up to a wonderfully-unforgettable RPG about making an RPG. The story feeds into the game and the game leeches into the story until the two are utterly inseparable, but even if they could be divided the dungeon crawling is incredibly playable.
