A Dwarven Prince on a quest to reclaim his people’s stolen land will take you on a great journey. Explore a continent filled with buried treasures and unearth mysteries that have laid hidden since the Great War. Take charge of your Dwarven settlement while mining, exploring and utilizing your resources with a combination of strategy and management.

Order the inhabitants of a Dwarven settlement to dig, build and conduct research in order to strengthen the clan. Be careful though because you must defend your Dwarves from the terrible beasts that lie in the depths. A unique world is generated each time a new level starts, so you will need to dynamically adapt your strategies and tactics during each session.

As you advance, the Dwarves will level up and gain new skills; progressing from weak dwarvlings to near immortal warriors or master craftsmen. There are also rare resources to be found deeper in the earth that grant access to better buildings and equipment. However, the deeper you dig the more dangerous foes you might unleash…

Key Features:
  • Explore – The randomly generated maps offer replayability while also providing a sense of exploration
  • Build – customize your settlement with not only practical constructions, but beautiful ones too! Build objects you think look great, while still gaining progress. Home is where the art is.
  • Command – With an intuitive order system the player can easily control oodles of dwarves simultaneously without the need for extensive micro management
  • A 13 level, story driven campaign
  • Custom game mode: Create a world without enemies so you can build uninterrupted or spawn lots of them to increase the challenge

A Game of Dwarves reviews and comments

A magical Game, with great Attention to Detail. If you look for a lot of Action and pulse-enhancing Fights, then this Game is nothing. However, If you Want to expand a Dwarf Fortress without Time Pressure, level your Own Dwarfs, collect Raw Materials and discover large Maps, then you have come to the right place. There are also fights, which can be quite simple (if you have enough levelt before and you don't mind if Dwarves die:-)). The Story and graphics are sweet, the Quests are not uninteresting and Gameplay + Controls are good.

A Cute Build Up Game that captivates with a simple cuddly graphic. The Gameplay consists of first Enlarging the Dwarves settlement, unlocking Technologies and exposing Labyrinths. Essentially, it's always the same Gameplay in both the Campaign and in the separate Single Player Modi. In My opinion, One Can build enough from an object of object technology in order to let off steam extensively in his Dwarven Settlement. Camera technically, Graphically and also in the Control it could have been better on some Corners. Essentially, it's well done and it's Fun to see its Dwarfs working on Their own Underground Settlement.

• What is going On? A Game of Dwarves is a small amusing Crafting game that has been held in comic style. We play the Son of the Mighty Dwarf king who kicked us out, as we have done nothing further in our lives so far Other Than to satisfy our Basic Needs. [+]-kindliche/comichafte presentation-small But fine film Sequences, they are interesting campaigns, which are not a real Story/rather designed as a casual game: If You think Crafting Games is good, you will have fun in it here for a While. The Design and Atmosphere of the Game is very childlike and you shouldn't necessarily expect much to the Story either, but as a pure Crafting Game it lends itself very well.

A Game of Dwarves Review 04.06.2014 A Game of Dwarves is an absolute Casual Game. You can have Fun with this Game. The Problem, unfortunately, is that many Mistakes spoil the Fun of the Game. The Balance is unfortunately very poor and the Support in the Form of Updates eliminate the Errors in the Game, you search here in vain. I bought the Game a Year ago and the Errors are still included in the Game. You can follow a Story here or unfold freely in a Sandbox Mode. In Sandbox Mode, extreme Framefalls occur again and again, which make it impossible to Play afterwards. But If everything is going on, the Game is quite Fun and you can spend a good 1-2 Hours with it. The Ingameshop Doesn't just invite you to play the Game. Here, Things from €1 are offered, which you can expect to be part of the Game. My Conclusion to you: €2-€3am is more than ok for the Game, but I wouldn't pay more for it by the specified Errors as well as the Ingameshop. So I can only say-Can I recommend the Game? JEIN. For a Maximum of 3 Euros Yes. For more, a resounding No. Thanks for reading your Maiestro
