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!

Great game!

It's a great way to pass time! My only problem is the amount of lives and the amount of time it takes to recharge. 30 mins for a new life isn't unreasonable. 3 lives isn't unreasonable. But 30 minutes to recharge one life when you ONLY get 3 is pretty aggravating when the levels get harder. If you're going to have us wait 30 mins per life then give 5 or an option to purchase unlimited lives. Also, it would be nice if we can replay levels we have already beaten without costing a life.

Minecraft meets Zelda

This game grabs you in an old school way. You want to break every block, there are hidden item on some levels, none on others (at least from what I've found!) and the play has a nice mix of puzzle meets live action in a still casual manner. The in-app purchases aren't so overwhelming that it makes you mad. You can still play and enjoy the game without it. Love!
