Lax gameplay, lots of character customization, amazing graphics, good bang for your buck
Does still have microtransactions, controls can be a bit hit or miss
I knew as soon as I picked Dungeon 999F from the lineup that it was going to be a great game, and I'm happy to report that my suspicions were confirmed. It's a unique RPG dungeon crawler that has so many levels, it might as well be an endless game.
In this game, you'll play as two characters, Jack and Rose, as they travel down a huge dungeon that spans 999 floors. Jack, the warrior, must protect Rose, a mage, as she conjures mana to unlock the next floor. Each floor will have a mana requirement that must be met before the duo can move on, but Rose will constantly be under attack from slimes that become increasingly stronger as the couple continues deeper into the dungeon. If either Jack or Rose's health reaches zero then they have to either pick up where they left off or head back to town.
Heading into town lets the player upgrade various stats on both characters, purchase new items, or upgrade Rose's spells. Upgrading your characters is crucial to get further into the dungeon, and items can be used to help, but are delegated to consumables.
Combat consists of simply walking Jack up to a slime, but is easily the weakest part of the game. Sometimes Jack won't. Attack the slimes and sometimes he just doesn't seem to want to go where you want him to.
Dungeon999F is a superb RPG. The formula seems fresh but incredibly fun. The downside is that it's a dollar and there are still more in-app purchases. But they aren't mandatory and the game is too good to pass up.
