Desktop Dungeons is a quick-play, roguelike-like puzzle game that gives you 10-20 minutes of dungeon-crawling action per serving. Casual players can enjoy endless coffee-break gaming sessions in infinitely random dungeons, while hardcore enthusiasts can unearth the game’s subtleties and tackle challenges of unrealistic viciousness. Down all paths lies frequent death, easy accessibility and the urge to play just one more dungeon.

If you enjoy tactical resource management where everything from traditional potions to leftover weak enemies or unexplored tiles can be a vital resource for the boss fight(s), or perhaps you get a thrill from short-term risk management such as whether to purchase an item and attack early or keep exploring in the hopes of a glyph to take down that stronger target first for bonusread more exp, or maybe you simply enjoy logically puzzling out what bizarre combination of powers and items will let you *just* take down that seemingly impossible boss this time ... then you will love this game. It is constantly engaging, very well balanced, has a decent UI, and comes with plenty of helpful tutorial puzzles to teach you both the basics and examples of advanced tricks.
Forewarning: There are some dungeons and challenges with unfair surprises that will likely waste your first attempts at them, as well as a handful of obscure but occasionally important interactions that the game never bothers to tell you about. The wealth of content and replayability ultimately overwhelms these once-off frustrations, however. You might also want to play with a calculator handy if you're not so great with mental math.

Desktop Dungeons drives me to distraction when I get it wrong because the only person I can ever blame is myself. Every dungeon is winnable, some just need you to game the system more than others.
It has a complex logic and a brilliant learning curve. Each class, god, race and unlocked item adds a little more to the system. I've invested more time into this than most games three times the price. Definitely worth the purchase.
