That's a lot of dungeon

Pocket Gamer Advent Calendar 2016 - Dungelot: Shattered Lands

We're a whole week into December already! But there's still over two weeks to go until you can put your feet up, scoff mince pies until you hate yourself, and enjoy some solid gaming on your mobile.

Wait, you can do that last bit right now, can't you?

Well, have we got a treat in store for you. Throughout December, we're giving away free codes for the best premium mobile games 2016 had to offer - exclusively to our community in the App Army. You can find more details in the first Advent Calendar post.

Today, on day seven, we've got a bunch of Android codes for the excellent Dungelot: Shattered Lands to chuck in your general direction.

What's the deal with this Dungelot then?

Well, it basically combines the best of roguelikes and dungeon crawlers, then moulds the result perfectly for mobile.

How that plays is kind of like Minesweeper. You play as a Thor-like tough warrior (or one of three other classes), and tap your way around a board, uncovering treasure, enemies, and all sorts of wonders and horrors.

You'll also battle enemies, use special powers, and upgrade your muscular dude using the stuff you find in levels - and that will help you in the tougher levels to come which feature challenging bosses to batter.

Anyway, enough of this patter. All you need to know is that it's good, and worth your time. We said as much at review, where we gave it a Gold Award and summarised it as: "A brilliant roguelike with a finger in a load of genres that gets the balance just right".

Fine, I'll play it

You may just get your chance. All you have to do is sign up to the App Army here, then write your Facebook name in the comments below this post. If you're chosen, you'll then get your Android code delivered within one working day.

There are no iOS codes for this one, but I guess it's about time Androiders got some love!
