Fans of Amplitude Studios’ Endless universe will be happy to find Dungeon of the Endless: Apogee available on mobile. Originally titled simply Dungeon of the Endless, the port bundles together all previously released DLC and updates the interface to be more mobile-friendly. You can grab it for the special launch price of $4.99 on Google Play and the iOS App Store now.
Astute gamers may be experiencing deja vu; in 2015, Amplitude released an iPad exclusive port of the game which developed and published itself. This new version, though an officially licensed product, is developed and published by Playdigious, notable for its involvement with Dead Cells and Northgard. The old, iPad exclusive port is no longer available and, even if you purchased it while it was, you’d have to shell out again for Apogee.
Dungeon occupies a unique genre-space, being a turn-based, roguelike tower defense game. Players take on the role of crashed prison ship survivors navigating a procedurally generated dungeon on a mysterious planet. Over the course of multiple floors, they must bring a crystal to the final exit, defending both it and themselves from enemies along the way. Each turn provides new resources with which you can heal your characters, research new technology, or build defensive measures. The original game has earned a score of 79 out of 100 from Metacritic, meaning it has generally received favorable reviews from critics.
In December of 2020, Amplitude announced it is developing the somewhat confusingly titled Endless Dungeon. It has been described as a spiritual successor rather than a direct sequel, and it does not yet have a confirmed release date. In the meantime, you can follow along and comment on development via its Games2Gether platform, an innovative website that allows fans to see aspects of development in real-time and communicate directly with the dev team.
