Dungeon Hunter 2 (iPhone Game)

Out there just over a year on the App Store, Hunter Dungeon offers a highly anticipated sequel. Determined to do even better, Gameloft now offers a suite flamboyant to be missed under any circumstances both in principle to play, simple and effective in its graphical approach. A dark conspiracy, a kingdom in danger, a distraught hero, a venerable priest, the wise advice ... We can not say that the story is told in Dungeon Hunter 2 do in originality. Fortunately, being a hack and slash to the Diablo, the app does not suffer from the lack of thickness of its storyline. What fans expect foremost, what are the other improvements and new to the agenda.

After choosing any characters among the available 3 (mage, warrior or thief), the player will first realize that the customization of the latter has been extended. Indeed, skills are more varied and it is now possible to opt for two specializations distinct from a certain level. The warrior can for example become Berserker or crossover while the robber may evolve ranger or archer. Then after a few minutes, we realize that the interface and touch screen controls have been optimized to graze in this perfection. The information displayed on the screen are relevant, the menus are clear and the ability to completely control his hero with a single finger is practical.


Each battle earns experience points to his character. Experience points which, once reached a certain quota, can create his character level, which becomes more powerful. Free to assign the player then the experience points earned in the ability of his choice: Strength, Dexterity, Stamina and Energy. Always keep in mind that depending on its character, some characteristics are more important than others. For example, we have seen above, the magician damn force. For him, the key is to increase its energy allowing it to launch more powerful magic. After a certain level of experience, your character can evolve into another feature even more specific: Warrior or Berserker evolves Crusader, in the Ranger or Brigand Archer and Mage and Black Magician or Illusionist.

With regard to the environments to explore and missions to complete, again Gameloft has the package. The world we have the opportunity to go in all directions and is five times larger than last year, which is saying something. Quests (main or optional) are more numerous and they fit much better in the scenario. The bestiary was widely expanded, the artificial intelligence of our adversaries is correct and even if the boss does not usually require any special strategy to be slaughtered, they often remain impressive. I must say that once again, beautiful graphics and high quality of music to give a dimension particularly epic adventure. Only cut-scenes are a bit of finishing and panache.

For weapons, some are specific to the abilities of his characters, other useless. For example, it goes without saying that the mage has no use of an ax with both hands. Weapons as objects (gloves, boots, helmet, rings, armor, etc..), The vast majority will recover in the levels: the body of an opponent that has just been killed, or concealed in safe. Advantage, it costs you absolutely nothing! Disadvantage, often you get weapons or objects that you are not meant! A board, keep them anyway and sell them to merchants who are located in villages, it will earn you gold. FYI, I personally have never bought a single item to a merchant or weapon, or armor, nothing!

Re: Dungeon Hunter 2 (iPhone Game)

The game mechanics, meanwhile, remain largely the same and that's good. An icon to hit two more to use a skill and a spell ... The formula works great, especially since the difficulty is well proportioned. As and when our deeds, we earn money and experience which serves to boost our course features and master new talents assets or liabilities. The only minor defects that can be recorded are in fact the lack of clarity on self-targeting of our enemies and loot that overwhelms us extremely abundant material in less than five minutes. Luckily, our inventory has both an option to automatic equipment of the best items and an option to sell unused items automatically.

As for the game itself, it offers an excellent shelf life. Purists will say too short, as we must tell the less experienced players. A life that stretches all the more if one takes the time to participate in all quests available. And many are the bastards! They generally involve killing a certain number of enemies in a very specific area and then find chests in a very special place. It does not look for noon at fourteen hours, but it can easily earn experience points without getting tired too.


There remains one final addition to small reserved lucky with an iPhone 4: online collaboration. Via Gameloft Live, up to four combatants can indeed lend a hand. The initiative is commendable, but in fact, experience is not so satisfactory as might be hoped. The sessions often resemble real rat race and everything we earn online imbalance clearly below our adventure solo. However cease to be choosy and get back to basics, that Dungeon Hunter 2 is an RPG action-exceptional and that this would be a crime to miss when you're a fan of the genre.

Conclusion:

Dungeon Hunter II is the exception that proves the rule: more beautiful than the first game, more exciting as well, but also more pleasant to handle and more comprehensive than ever. Undoubtedly, Dungeon Hunter 2 is the worthy heir of its predecessor. Better balanced, more complete and always addictive, this excellent episode must be immediately downloaded to your iPhone.
