UnlockGame just announced that their new fantasy rogue-lite mobile RPG titled Brave Dungeon is hitting the stores today, both Google Play and iTunes App Store, on June 25th. Now, what peaked out interest are some of the details they shared about the game, particularly some figures. The developers are promising that over 200 heroes are coming right from the start, which is also adding the hero collector genre into the mix. They are describing the game as a highly challenging and competitive experience, while the battle will adopt auto chess rules.
Going further into detail, UnlockGames reveals that they have chosen to follow the auto chess hallmark of alliances or factions. There will be 6 different factions to which those 200 heroes will belong to and they will be divided into classes, of course. So far, there are 4 classes to pick from, and, oddly enough, the core gameplay of Brave Dungeon will be dungeon crawling, but in a team. Yes, that is what they said and it is precisely what raises our interest in this title coming out today. We haven’t yet had the pleasure of trying it out, but an in-depth review is in order if things are as good as they promise they will be.
Reading the developer’s note about Brave Dungeon, we may recognize very different hallmarks from different gaming genres that are rarely ever put together, if ever. Firstly, there is a dungeon-crawling RPG and auto chess. Secondly, this game will also have both an active and AFK exploring system. It will have some hero collector action, with the traditional upgrade system no doubt. And, it will even have hero cards, so it mixes things up, hopefully on a positive note.
But, the main emphasis is still on team play. Brave Dungeon will feature team plays dungeon crawling, rogue-lite atmosphere, auto chess AFK system, and expansive content. And, please note that there is a difference between the roguelike and rogue-lite subgenres. Roguelike is a subgenre of videogames that does typically include role-playing elements with a characteristic top-down view, tile-based graphics, procedurally generated levels, and are mostly set in dungeons. While Rogue-lite did come out of roguelike, these kinds of games have a more complex visual style and focus less on strategy perhaps.
Whatever the case may be, we will try out Brave Dungeon: Roguelite IDLE RPG straight away and hopefully be back with an in-depth review soon. By that time, you can try it yourself. The game is out today, June 25th, 2020, and it is available for mobiles, both Android and iOS as a free-to-play title, so it costs nothing to try it out! Have fun!
