You can leave it to Nitrome to make the RPG genre more casual, and that again appears to be the case with its new title, Redungeon. The game is now available for both Android and iOS platform, and it’s an endless dungeon crawler where each dungeon you enter is progressively more difficult to crawl through, but definitely different each time you crawl through it. Everything is procedurally generated here, and that goes right down to the traps that are carefully designed to stop you. You’ll also be able to unlock characters with their own unique skills, and make use of swipe controls or on-screen buttons to get your character around the in-game worlds.
The great thing about games with procedurally-generated (read: randomized) levels is that they have great replay value – no run is going to be the same as any of the ones you previously had. This may be challenging for some, but for others, it’s just right up their alley. Having said that, do join us as we now bring you our list of Redungeon tips and tricks. You’ll want to refer to these each time you crawl through the dungeons, as we’re here to help you last longer and complete more of them.
1. Each Obstacle Has Their Own Unique And Specific Pattern
While the levels are randomized, the obstacles you run into do not – we’re generally referring to weapons, arrows, and towers here. In fact, they all follow a specific order when moving around, which means you can stay in the background and watch the pattern unfold before you push forward. That will allow you to make a more informed move and avoid getting hit by a sword or an arrow or whatnot, and will also help you against the game’s enemies.
2. Don’t Pick Up The Gold Coins
As Redungeon has a currency system, you may think we’re nuts for advising you not to pick up the gold coins. You can, if you don’t have any other option, but if you have to choose, do NOT pick them, and go instead for the coins of different colors. Green coins are worth the same value as two coins, blue coins are worth three, and red coins are worth four. It’s a strange mechanic, to be sure, but it is what it is, and gold coins, apparently, are the least valuable form of currency in the game. You can also break the jars, which contain coins inside, though there’s no telling what kind of coins are inside until you break them.
3. To Buy A New Knight Or Upgrade Your Existing One?
You may be wondering what you should do in this case – buy a new knight, or upgrade the one you currently have? We suggest you take the latter course of action, as buying a new knight tends to be quite expensive in this game. It would be more cost-effective to upgrade your base knight instead of splurging on a more powerful one, though at some point, you may want to consider purchasing a new one, as they are generally able to take more damage as they rise in price.
4. How Does The Scoring System Work?
Jumping forward in Redungeon will earn you one point each, though you won’t get any points for jumping backwards or to the left or right side. Unfortunately, there’s no way to game this system by jumping backwards, then jumping forward again to a square you’ve already been on.
5. Don’t Spend Your Coins On Resuming The Game
Once your character has gotten killed, the game will ask you whether you want to watch a video, or to pay 100 coins to keep on going. This is why you should play the game with the Internet turned on, as you should watch the ads – it’s not going to cost you anything, may it be in-game or in real life. There’s no use paying 100 coins when you have the option to watch a video, and to further warn you about this, we should also say that it can be quite hard, if not impossible, to earn back the 100 coins you spent while completing one run.
