Dungeon Hearts

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Dungeon Hearts is a match-3 game, yet that observation didn't solidify until I sat down to write this review. From music to mechanics, Dungeon Hearts is so ingrained in traditional Japanese role-playing games (think Final Fantasy IV ) that it's easy to look past its more conventional trappings, especially since it does such a clever job of dressing them up. Much like Square's own Theatrhythm , Dungeon Hearts looks like an RPG but walks like something else.

A Charming Mash-Up Indeed | Dungeon Hearts Review

  • Conclusion: I’m finding myself playing Dungeon Hearts the same way I would play Bejeweled or Tetris . It’s perfect for the downtime you encounter with everyday life. At $2.99 on Steam it’s a great value pick. If you are looking for a game that blurs the lines between puzzle and role playing games, this game is definitely the way to go.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: Dungeon Hearts is a small role-playing game merged with many puzzle elements. It seems to take inspiration from Bejeweled and Puzzle Quest. The characters themselves have a cuteness appeal. These elements were more than enough to catch my attention.

  • Conclusion: Dungeon Hearts is an excellent addition to the genre. Its combo of rpg and match play is really quite fun, especially if you don’t mind spending some time with it. While not the best for a quick pick up and play, there’s enough depth to keep it installed on my machine for a long time.

  • Excerpt: If I told you that Dungeon Hearts was a match-3 puzzle game, RPG hybrid, would you dismiss it as another Puzzle Quest clone? Well, it is, but you shouldn't, because it isn't. Let me explain...

Matching For Victory

Game Debate
1 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Match three games have been around since the dawn of human culture; the first recorded board game of the type dates back to the Roman times. These games are still enjoyed today (most famous being Bejeweled ) and similar game mechanics have been used in multiple genre-combining games, such as Puzzle Quest . Now the indie developer Cube Roots , run by a single man, is jumping on the wagon with it's match three/RPG hybrid Dungeon Hearts.
  • Pros: Gameplay
  • Cons: No Story, A Bit Too Fast-Paced?, Short

iPAD not included–Dungeon Hearts review

GamingTrend
5 April 2013
  • Excerpt: Puzzle games love playing dress up, it’s nothing new. You see ‘em acting as fighting games like in Super Puzzle Fighter, or even plot driven romance dramas as in last year’s surprise hit, Catherine. It’s multitasking for the modern gamer who prefers some back story with their Tetris because, honestly, who has the time to play two games separately anymore?
  • Pros: Exciting and customizable soundtrack, Fun character and monster designs
  • Cons: Overly complex battle system, Difficult to play using a mouse, No way to save character progression, Frustratingly difficult, Repetitive and nonstop gameplay

Dungeon Hearts

NG-Gamer.nl
19 April 2013
  • Summary: De meeste populaire tablet en mobiele games kun je op een of andere manier wel tot het puzzel-genre rekenen. Er komen echter steeds meer games in andere genres bij, die niet altijd even goed aanslaan. DungeonHearts lijkt zich dit te realiseren en probeert zich te onderscheiden door het populaire RPG-genre te combineren met een puzzlegame. Het resultaat is een leuk spel voor onderweg, maar helaas verveelt het spel al wel redelijk snel.
  • Pros: Grafisch mooi stijltje, RPG elementen
  • Cons: Te weinig variate, Nauwelijks uitdaging, Weinig unlockables

  • Summary: Het mag dan allemaal niet zo uitgebreid zijn als een of volwaardige RPG (wat overigens vooral te wijten is aan het hoog arcade-gehalte), maar de vlotte gameplay en drang voor om uit te spelen zit er goed in. De kunnen deze wel waarderen en waarschijnlijk zelfs wel even proberen. Uiteindelijk is het geen hoogvlieger, maar zeker wel een leuke (afgeknepen) RPG met snelle puzzelelementen die toch wel de moeite waard is om even te proberen.
  • Pros: Een leuke combinatie van RPG à la, Koddig, Net zo verslavend, Makkelijk op te pikken
  • Cons: Helaas geen, Verkramping in de hand, Niet heel veel replay value
