Devious Dungeon Review via Nintendo Insider

Most of my time with Devious Dungeon saw me walking through levels destroying everything in sight for coins, then buying the next best gear I could get, before grinding through the next batch of levels.

Review: Devious Dungeon (Switch eShop) via Nintendo Life

Devious Dungeon is far from a bad game. Its feedback loop of exploration, levelling up and gear acquisition makes for a fun and rewarding experience for the first few hours, but its lack of tangible depth ultimately torpedoes the endless potential of its randomly built dungeons.

Devious Dungeon (Nintendo Switch) Review via Cubed3

Whilst more could be done within the realm of Devious Dungeon, that could be saved for the sequel, which really needs to happen. It is a pleasing and accessible dungeon crawler that doesn't over complicate what its goal is. There are almost zero plot points, yet fun hack 'n' slash gameplay, randomised dungeons, and lots of loot and upgrades that help to make this a very fun title to run around in.

DEVIOUS DUNGEON NINTENDO SWITCH REVIEW via SwitchWatch

Devious Dungeon is a lot of fun. The controls are tight, which makes the platforming enjoyable. The upgrade systems are fun to engage with and help you feel stronger as you progress. The procedurally generated levels make each run feel unique and helps add replayability to the game. There are some underwhelming sound effects and music, and the game can get a bit repetitive, but overall the experience I had with Devious Dungeon was a positive one. This game, I believe, is worth your hard-earned cash.

Devious Dungeon (Switch) Review via NintendoWorldReport

The highest praise and most damning criticism I can give Devious Dungeon is that it is functional and something I could burn time with at a doctor's office or in a plane. With the consistent stream of games coming to the Switch, you're better off waiting to see if one of its better contemporaries gets released.

Despite the apparent lack of depth here, I still think this game looks kind of delightful. The fact that it’s made by the folks behind League of Evil (which was a great pallet cleanser) makes it all the more appealing.

Mobile port or not, what I see here is a low-graphic hack & slash.
There's no hint of a story, puzzles, character development, nothing. Just hit the things in the dungeon, get stronger, to hit stronger things, to get stronger, to... kill the boss I guess?

yea...

@jonnydarkfang totally agree! It's one reason I've been trying to tag games as such when they are just ports.

Two words that can OBLITERATE any enthusiasm I had for a game...
"Mobile port"
