When we received the final build of DH3 late last year I got really addicted. Unlike many of you I never played Dungeon Hunter 1 or 2. I’d never really played any games in the dungeon crawler genre. Just wasn’t my thing.
But DH3 was a different story. Whether because I’m working at Gameloft or because this version was free-to-play, I jumped in and got really hooked. I mean, I was secretly playing the game at my desk and playing during breakfast. It was a major addiction.
Then the game came out…and there was some backlash from fans of the previous games. The criticisms caught me off guard. Some people claimed that leveling system required too much grinding, but I’d been playing for weeks, earning every upgrade by playing and loving every minute. My only complaint was that the multiplayer was delayed post-launch. And now it’s here on both iOS and Android.
Ultimately, I think this was a case of unmanaged expectations. We have fans who love Dungeon Hunter, and who had specific expectations for DH3. They were disappointed to see the series change. Trust me, we got the message.
But I don’t think many of you fully understood ours: Despite this game being a departure from the previous versions, the game is GOOD. I challenge you to find another wave based arena game on iOS or Android that holds a candle to DH3. Seriously, post them in the comments, cause I’d love to check them out.
