Dungeon of Slyn
Finally, wrapping up this week’s Red Stripe Deals is Dungeon of Slyn. This is a pretty standard roguelike dungeon crawler, featuring a few new interesting additions (such as the oft-overlooked classes of Paladin and Priest) and randomly generated dungeons to keep you coming back.
Dungeon Of Slyn is a roguelike role-playing game in which you’ll get to explore a randomly generated dungeon with lots of dangers at every corner.
Before starting your quest you will have to choose one of the five possible hero classes: fighter, mage, paladin, priest, and ranger. Each of these classes come with unique strengths and weaknesses that will require a different approach when confronting the enemies from the dungeon.
Furthermore, as most rogulike games, death is final so advance carefully and engage in battles only when you’re sure you can come out victorious or you’ll have to start the adventure from the very beginning.
Besides monsters, the dungeon is also the place where you will find lots of weapons, equipment and consumables with different properties. While some can give you an instant boost to your skills, other can be cursed and besides their negative effects will bind to your hero needing you to remove their curse if you want to get rid of them.
Spell books, potions, and magic wands can also be found during your adventure but, will require identification scrolls if you don’t want to risk casting a curse on yourself or drinking a deadly potion.
The game packs lots of content regarding weapons, equipment, and other consumables which combined with the random dungeon generator, makes it deliver a completely unique experience each time you play it.
Dungeon of Slyn is currently $1.49, as opposed to its usual $2.99 price point.
So, there are this week’s Red Stripe Deals. If any of these catches your eye, head off to the Windows Store and grab them at the reduced price while you still can!
