I had never been so stressed over a matching game in my life, I was actually trying not to panic as each new higher level threw in new runes that benefit the enemies. I constantly had to learn what each new rune symbols meant and how to destroy or avoid them. Of course, thanks to the game’s bestiary it helped mea lot, sadly I only found out way later that it also had runes on it.

Those who are new to the game, >:O study this! it will help you plan your strategies and help keep your heroes alive. It also taught me how to destroy certain enemy runes.

Difficult?! Never give up! Never surrender!!

(Update: There is now an Easy mode! though try normal first to see how you fair. The post below applies to normal mode)

When I was researching this game, I found quite a number of reviewers rating it down. When I really looked into why that was so, I realized it was because they were simply not used to this kind of game. Now, the game IS pretty unique so it is understandable. However, they all agreed that it is a wonderful idea, wonderful blend, and even meshed together well, but they also thought it was too difficult to the point of it making the fun meter for them turn to 0. We can’t scoff them or judge them though because everyone has a different tolerance level, and everyone has different preferences. Some like the challenge of mastering things that causes them to wanna pimp slap people, while others would rather play a game with a relaxing atmosphere. I actually found myself trying again and again even though I kept losing at the first boss (I am so not ready for hard mode), even now, I am basing the review over my own personal capabilities as well as other people’s experiences. How well you yourself will do in the game, is entirely on you. I really do encourage you however, to try the game, who knows, you may be a Dungeon Heart GENIUS!!! πŸ˜€

Expect more things to get implemented πŸ™‚

The developer told me that there will be, in fact, more contents to come πŸ™‚ so let’s look forward to that!

Final Verdict

If you want to challenge yourself and fancy yourself as an awesome strategist, I really encourage you to play this game. Even if you’re a casual player, I would still recommend this game because it really makes you work your brain. this might even be too easy for some and they might thrive in the hard mode. Good thing about the game is that it randomly generates new battle sequences so you never know what new challenges you gotta rambo through. Dungeon Heart is a unique idea that was put into reality pretty well in my opinion. From the cute art style to the Stay on your toes gameplay, I think this is truly one heck of a brain worker game.

To The Moon Game Review

An RPG enriched with a story that will hook you in while accompanied by beautiful soundtrack. If you’re into story driven games and are a fan of the classic JRPGs such as: Chrono Trigger, Lunar, old Final Fantasy series, etc., this is a must play!

To The Moon

Shoutout of Gratitude: Being the poor college student, I was not able to afford the game so I had it on my wishlist. I was surprised when I found this game in my gift section 3 days later from one of my readers! πŸ™‚ Thank you Riven! *hug*

What got me interested: Those of you who were already RPG gamers during late 80s to early and late 90s might be able to relate with me when I say that presently, there are not many RPGs Β that are on par with the RPGs back in the day of Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross, Lunar, Legend of Legaia, Final Fantasy Series (before they tried too hard), Legend of the Dragoon, Man! I can keep going. I have actually stopped hunting for RPGs for a long long time, of course, I occasionally find good ones, but still, I miss the days where I would not stop playing until I finish the game because I am so captivated by the story and I just HAVE to know what happens next until I reach the end! AKA Hermit Mode which basically means I do not sleep, I will only get out of my room to eat and for bathroom breaks, then keep telling myself I will shower after an hour only to find out it is already the next day (do not judge me you all are gamers, you went through this!). My point is, I have not been hermit mode over an RPG in a long time and since it made my childhood awesome, it makes me sad. So when I saw this game and read the description, the strong curiosity I felt sparked something in my heart again.
