Undercroft may look familiar, it has that sort of ‘I think I use to play that back in 1993’ vibe, but actually it’s a wholly original “old-school” style RPG. The reason it looks sorecognisable, is because it’s basically a bastard child of many great RPG’s from the late 80’s and early 90’s such as Dungeon Master, Eye of the Beholder and Lands of Lore.
Like the games on which it’s based, you take control of a group of individuals (warriors, mages, priests, etc) who take up arms to complete various quests, battling through dark dungeons, forests and snowy mountains.Yet, even for a game of such complexity (There are numerous buttons an all) the interface is relatively user friendly and you can quickly master it in no time.
What’s more, with at least 20 hours of gameplay you’re hardly going to short of quests to complete. However, the reality is that most users on the iPhone are casual pick up and play gamers, Angry Birds/ Flick Football that sort of stuff, so it’s difficult to imagine anyone except die hard RPG fanatics truly embracing Undercroft.
Some users may think Undercroft is the best thing to come out in a long time, while others may find they don’t have the time or will power to delve into Undercrofts giant storyline.NeverthelessUndercroft is free (a steal in my opinion) so there’s really no reason why people shouldn’t at least give it a go.
