Best Dungeon Crawler Games to Try Today

Staying at home has pushed the video game industry to the new heights. Case in point, a Statista report on time spent playing video games notes how there’s been a 45% increase in the number of hours Americans spend on their consoles or PCs. Indeed, with the number of games on the market and the extra time we have had at home due to the pandemic, finding new ways to keep ourselves occupied isn’t a challenge at all.

For truly time-consuming video games, the dungeon crawler genre is a definite go-to. Battling in dungeons filled with monsters, demons, and the undead for hours to upgrade your sword-wielding, the magic-throwing character is a grind — but it’s a fun grind. That said, we’ve outlined a few dungeon crawler games you can play right now. Taking you to distant lands and through interesting storylines, you’ll be left hooked and begging for more.

Minecraft Dungeons

We commented on the release of Minecraft Dungeons last year, and it looks like the game has delivered. Mojang’s new game takes a minimalist approach to physics and textures and instead focuses on an expansive universe that players can explore and enjoy. Sporting the signature Minecraft-look with your classic dungeon-crawler gameplay, players fight against the evil Arch-Illager and his relentless swarm of new-and-nasty mobs. You can choose to play this game alone, or fight with friends in four-player local support or online multiplayer. The game also offers a “hero edition”, where you can get some extra cosmetic gear along with access to DLCs.

Children of Morta

Children of Morta is a colorful pixel-art animation-filled game, with a deep focus on the story and the rotating cast of hero characters, players can use. In the top three, in HP’s list of dungeon crawler games to play this 2020, Children of Morta is a successful Kickstarter concept that’s exceeding expectations. The immersive storyline focuses on the Bergson family, with each member showcasing unique abilities and class features. Tasked with defending Mount Morta, the game follows the family in their battle against the invading corruption across different dungeons and levels. You’re free to switch between your preferred heroes and upgrade the entire family’s abilities as you level up.

Diablo III

As we wait for Diablo IV, the latest release from Blizzard Entertainment, Diablo III, with its expansions Rise of the Necromancer and Reaper of Souls remains a classic. This typical hack-and-slash role-playing game takes place in Sanctuary, following the fall of a star and the rise of the undead in a town called New Tristam. The player spends the majority of the game battling the undead and demons in countless dungeons, and the storyline follows five acts, each with different, smaller, plot lines. With Diablo IV still in development, it only seems suitable to catch up on the general plotline of this classic action-packed game.

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth

While this is a remake of the original title with the same name, the developers have added new endings and characters to the core story. You’ll get to control Isaac (or any of the other fourteen unlockable characters) in his effort to escape his deranged mother and her belief that his sacrifice will bring salvation. Primarily taking place in Isaac’s basement, the character must face several monsters in order to escape his crazy mother.

Last Epoch

Another Kickstarter-funded action RPG, Last Epoch is a game that features more than a dozen character classes to master along with 110 skill trees to experiment with. Set in a time-traveling fantasy setting, this game sets itself apart with diverse environments (truly focusing on variety) and presents a huge opportunity to tailor your character. Players can choose from 5 base character builds, along with around 16 mastery classes such as druid, beastmaster, and more that are in the works. If you’re the type to go back and play a game over and over again with different classes, this is the game for you.
