Challenging Retro Platformer Cruel Dungeon Hops Onto Android
A new hardcore retro platformer that will leave you begging for mercy with its intimidating level design called Cruel Dungeon has leapt onto Android devices. The brainchild of indie developer Cactus Studio, Cruel Dungeon is a relatively straightforward but eminently challenging pixel sidescroller about a tomb raiding explorer whose determined to get his hands on the pharaoh’s treasure no matter what the cost. It’s up to players to jump across boiling lava pits, outrun giant boulders, and avoid devious hidden traps in their quest for long lost riches.
Players control their avaricious adventurer using virtual gamepad controls to move left/right and jump as they explore each level in search of a key that will unlock the exit. While this sounds simple in theory Cruel Dungeon’s high but fair difficulty level quickly proves it to be anything but as players must master their timing to pixel precision if they want to make it past the many obstacles they’ll encounter unscathed. With its charming graphics and excellent level design Cruel Dungeon is sure to be a pleasant experience for platforming aficionados.
Cruel Dungeon is free to download on Google Play.
