“EA has a massive hit on its hands… devilishly funny and addictive.” – Inside Mobile Apps

“I’m a big fan of tower-defense-style games, real-time strategy games, and the classic Dungeon Keeper. This follows that formula perfectly.” – VGMarket playtester

DIG. DEVISE. DOMINATE! It’s good to be bad in Dungeon Keeper!

Devilishly smart. Deploy wicked tactics and dominate your enemies! Build the ultimate underground lair and summon diabolical forces to do your bidding. It’s tower defense…without the tower…and a lot more offensive!

From Trolls to Bile Demons, Mistresses, and Warlocks – deploy your army of baddies and unleash special attacks to destroy the competition.

Maximize your defenses to thwart invaders with expertly laid traps and dungeon design. Build rooms like the torture chamber or dark library to give attackers some painful and shocking surprises.

Attack enemy dungeons and plunder their resources. Deploy your forces and face spike traps, cannons, poisonous spores and more. Too many enemies? Turn them into chickens! Master the Hand of Evil™ to unleash devastating spell attacks.

Some minions need more…motivation than others. Slap your Imps to get them working faster.

Form guilds with players from around the world. Your new alliances let you share minions, increase resource generation, and earn exclusive guild achievements.

What more are you waiting for, Keeper? Play the most diabolically fun game on the App Store!

Needs balance

Tumour gal

The game itself is nice, simple progression, build x to get enough resources for y. Then repeat. The downside to the game is the disparity in pvp primarily due to flying creatures that ignore walls.

Take days or weeks working on your dungeon layout only to find that some creatures can simply ignore your layout. Makes you wonder why you spent so much time building it. The other issue seems to be anyone can attack anyone else. So your slow progress up is hindered by people much more advanced than you as you have little or nothing to build to defend yourself with.

Personally, I'd recode the flying ones to follow the route of the dungeon. Also, I'd remove a couple of the spells, one can blow holes through the dungeon - circumventing your defences, the other completely turns off your defences.

Overall, it's a nice game in much need of tweaking.

Ruined by freemium model


I’m a fan of the original DK series but I suspected the new mobile version would be the usual freemium money grab - I was right. Basically the game tries to annoy you into spending money for “gems” which are needed to do anything without having to wait an unreasonable amount of time (like a day to dig out a single block). EA is out right greedy, you’d need to spend hundreds of £s to get the same basic gameplay as the original PC versions.

Don’t bother with this “game” (scam), get a legacy PC version instead for £5 and save yourself the tedium.

New Update Isn't Working...


I absolutely love this game & have been playing it for a couple of years now. I thought I'd just flag it that the new update isn't making the game work on my iPad for some reason. It can't seem to get past the first screen where it says "checking for updates"... does the app need a quick update? Anyone else struggling with this issue?
