Jay Alexander Patterson, Amazon

  • Summary: What an amazing game! I've put around 20 hours into it and have gotten to the 27th floor and can't get past it. Luckily I've been upgraded my weapon really high so I'm gonna make another run for it!

handheld roguelike

Barrett, Amazon
18 April 2013
  • Summary: A simple roguelike to take with me? YES PLEASE! When you die, your story progress is saved and you can store items in the warehouse. So NPCs will remember you and you can grab that good weapon you found last playthrough and try again.

Best Graphical Roguelike

Jay McCarthy, Amazon
1 May 2009
  • Summary: I love playing roguelike such as Nethack and Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup. When I play them, I normally play in the traditional terminal display, because I think most graphical roguelikes look very cheesy. Shiren is not like that. Not only does it given an authentic and awesome roguelike experience, but it is beautiful. I love playing this game now!

A game that could easily last you a year or more

Buttercup, Amazon
19 February 2009
  • Summary: Gameplay: ***** (great, deepens over time!) Story: *** (not important) Graphics: *** (dated) Sound: *** (what's that?) Music: **** (suitable for the environments, neither catchy nor annoying) Make no mistake-- this is not a game for those that have wet dreams about shaders and nearly climax at the orchestral background music of Final Fantasy. This is an experience crafted for hardcore gamers, boiled down to the essentials.

This game will make you angry.

Flagrant "Bleh", Amazon
16 December 2008
  • Summary: The game gets more fun as you play. It's the only game I play for the past two months. I wouldn't be surprised if the cartridge fused with the game (Like that lady who sat on the toilet so long she grew into it!

A challenging, absorbing, misunderstood game

J. Kocan "tomservojr", Amazon
7 April 2008
  • Summary: The thing about Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer is that you will die, and you will die a lot. You will be killed by monsters that travel through walls. You will be transformed into a helpless, harmless rice ball and then killed. You will walk unsuspectingly into an open, cavernous "monster house" and know there's nothing you can do because you traded your only Blastwave Scroll for an armband that provides a gigantic XP boost - XP that you will now never have a...

Best roguelike (dungeon crawl) ever

Rorke Haining, Amazon
27 March 2008
  • Summary: If you've ever wished for a port of Rogue or Hack or Angband on your Nintendo DS, this is the game for you. Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer (Shiren for short) is a classic "roguelike". As such, it will never be a popular breakaway hit, but it is definitely a cult classic. Some gamers will love this game and find it to be one of the best in years; most will simply ignore it or not give it much of a chance.

May be the Best of the Randoms

William Michaels, Amazon
17 March 2008
  • Summary: I have played a number of good random-dungeon games, from Sega Master System's Dragon Crystal, through Dragon Warrior Monsters 1 and 2, through the Game Boy Lufia's Ancient Cave, and this may be the best of the lot (though the Ancient Cave is also excellent). It is certainly addictive! What makes it stand out is: 1. Interesting floor layouts, especially from Level 8 onward. 2.

Still the best roguelike on DS and 3DS

Hugo Marchand, Amazon
30 June 2014
  • Summary: If you want a real roguelike for the Nintendo DS, or even for the 3DS, this game is for you. It's a japanese-style roguelike, so some things persist through deaths (think Rogue Legacy), but the difficulty is right on par with most games of the classical style. A single mistake can be your death, which to me, simply means that this game is a good roguelike.
