Here is an overview of the game, via Nicalis:


In Dungreed, the player assumes the role of an adventurer who must explore a continuously evolving dungeon to prevent an entire town from being destroyed. The game features procedurally generated levels with a variety of environments such as prisons, jungles and lava zones.

Players can advance through the living dungeon by defeating enemies with powerful magic items and an arsenal of weapons, ranging from rusty swords to cutting-edge sniper rifles. To prepare for the journey ahead, adventurers can train to become stronger and better equipped prior to exploring deeper and encountering the sinister denizens that lurk in the unpredictable dungeon.

Key Features

  • Procedurally generated maps that are different each time you enter the dungeon.
  • Rescue the townspeople from the dungeon and help them to rebuild the town.
  • Level up, upgrade your stats and/or change your equipment for each dungeon run.
  • Discover a wide variety of randomly placed weapons and magical items.
  • Unique control system lets you aim your weapon and dash in any direction in a 360-degree arc, even opposite the direction you’re moving.
  • Exciting monsters, treacherous traps and epic boss battles.
  • Charming pixel-art graphics, dramatic music and unpredictable challenges.
  • Gameplay modes include single-player and two-player cooperative play.
