Customer Reviews

I dig this game. Very ore-riginal!

Dwarven Den is a game of deep strategy and unique mechanics. Having long prospected for a decent dwarf-centered game, I delved into this with few expectations- and unearthed a goldmine. The tap-to-mine interface, while a bit rocky, is crunchy(satisfying) while the energy system demands serious strategizing. Art design- precious. I greatly appreciate the fact that gender is equally represented and non-sexualized here-good work, developers. All the components of this game work fantastically, but there are a few miner issues- the life system is the pits, and fleeing from monsters feels very clumsy. Small flaws in otherwise outstanding gem. It rocks! An underground hit!

Awesome Fun !

Another great game with strategy, upgrading, crafting, and most of all FUN! Also, Backflip knows exactly how to do IAP and how not to! You are free to go back and re-do levels as much as you want to find items and collect gold for forging. Only dieing costs lives and can limit progress. However, re-doing levels to get more powerful items to help keep you from dieing isn't restricted in any way and although you can die in re-doing a level, it is very unlikely especially after completing it a few times.

Again, awesome fun with puzzle levels, upgrades, and crafting. Great Game !!

Such a great game but IT NEEDS UPDATED!!

I love this game, it's a clever concept and the levels vary enough that it doesn't get repetitive or boring. The only downside is that the makers have seemingly abandoned the app. I've racked up more gold than I could ever possibly need and have three stars on nearly all the levels, so at this point I'm more than ready for some new levels. Unfortunately the daily guild level is closely tied to what level you're on in the game, so once you get to level 100 the daily level will be pretty much the same forever. Bummer that it looks like we'll never get new levels or a dwarven den 2.
