A Game of Dwarves

  • Excerpt: Now, if you've been keeping up on other reviews (you faithless, heartless people!), you'll have noticed that it's incredibly difficult to write about A Game of Dwarves without mentioning two cult classics: Dwarf Fortress (the incredibly detailed, but also incredibly difficult roguelike sim-strategy thing the Toady One makes) and Dungeon Keeper (the delightful classic by Bullfrog games, since copied in one aspect or another by many, many people).

  • Excerpt: When it comes down to it, A Game of Dwarves has made a good attempt at filling what I still consider an underserved niche in the strategy genre, but it falls quite a bit short of what it could have been with a bit more complexity and depth.
  • Pros: Sandbox mode included
  • Cons: Controls aren’t intuitive, game lacks depth

A Game of Dwarves review

6 November 2012
  • Conclusion: That said… I just like this game. Where others have seen textureless character models, I see quirky cartoon styling. Where some players might complain about the camera, I’m just pleased to have got to grips with it. Though I’m getting a little tired of the gameplay I still can’t mark it down for that. A Game of Dwarves is a fairly casual, niche affair that won’t appeal to many, but it’ll give the occasional weirdo like me something to enjoy.
  • Pros: Digging and decorating is good fun.
  • Cons: Suspicious camera. Dreary campaign. No challenge.

A Game Of Dwarves Review | Digging Too Deep

Dealspwn
30 October 2012
  • Conclusion: The Short Version: Zeal have managed to hone the base mechanics and visual design down to a 'T' with A Game Of Dwarves, but the difficulty curve and need to grind in the campaign buries what fun could have been had. A patch to fine tune the experience could improve thing greatly, but for now only those looking for a challenge should dig away at this one.
  • Pros: The Three Dimensional playing field provides a new depth for the genre., An art style that is fun and enjoyable., When at its best, it can be a fun and rewarding game…
  • Cons: … but the sudden difficulty curve soon removes that feeling., Too much grind and time is needed to reach the best items and minions., Issues such as filled stockpiles and starving dwarves happen with too little warning.

  • Excerpt: Ett spel om dvärgar som gräver sig ner i underjorden? Det vore lätt att missta spelet för ett aprilskämt? Du börjar som en ung dvärgaprins, och din uppgift är att bevisa för din far kungen att du inte är en odugling. För att göra det behöver du grunda din egen klan, styra ett litet kungarike och utföra uppgifter allt eftersom de dyker upp.
