Hydravision Entertainment has announced that Dungeon Twister, a turn-based strategy game is being released on PSN July 3rd in the USA, and July 4th in Europe and Australia. Dungeon Twister is an interesting mix between chess and Dungeons & Dragons.
Dungeon Twister pits two players against each other inside of a dungeon with eight adventurers, where only one player can win. According to Hydravision Entertainment, each game will last between 30 and 45 minutes and is made up of two phases:
- The positioning phase, in which the player can develop his strategy by selecting his starting team and where the adventurers and the magic objects are situated.
- The game phase itself where the player develops his strategy… and has to adapt to his opponent’s personality.
Five points wins a game, and there are only two ways to score points: by either fleeing the dungeon or to fight and kill your opponent. Hydravision Entertainment hopes this will allow players freedom of playstyles and the ability to adapt to the match at hand.
A player’s adventurers will each have their own characteristics, and a troll will differ from a goblin or human. Being Dungeons & Dragons, there is magic, of course, and they’re found in the form of items spread throughout the map.
Control of the adventurers, as well as rotate one of eight rooms per map, using a special power, magical object, or to start a combat will take action points, which can be used each turn.
