Thank you React Games for sending us this game to review!

Super Dungeon Bros is a 3D rock and roll themed hack and slash game where the dungeons are randomly generated when you play with up to three other players online or locally. Sadly, there doesn’t seem to be anyone to play with online, so you’ll need to rely on friends to help you unlock the various areas and weapons available. If you prefer to play solo, you can still compete in the daily and weekly challenges.

The rock and rollish brothers Axl, Lars, Freddie, and Ozzie are bored and get inspired to go dungeon crawling after listening to a record (with a five pointed star on it) that promises them fame and loot if they save the world and become rock legends. Not surprisingly, the background music is rock and roll and that’s pretty much the extent of the rock and roll theme.

Super Dungeon Bros

Strong Points: Daily and weekly challenges
Weak Points: Nobody to play with online
Moral Warnings: Kill or be killed in these dungeons filled with various undead and grotesque monsters; drinking brew restores your health; elemental powers/magic use; bloodshed and dismemberment

In the beginning, there are only a handful of melee or ranged weapons to choose from. By exploring dungeons and collecting shards, you can purchase and unlock different helmets and weapons. There are four weapon classes: swords, hammers, wands, and crossbows. Each weapon class provides a unique combo attack. Besides your equipped weapon, you can throw objects and other players at enemies and bosses.

There’s a decent variety of enemies including skeletons, spiders, flying eyeballs, bees, poison-spewing frog-like creatures, and plenty others to slice into bits. There are mini-bosses and regular bosses that have to be dealt with before advancing to the portal at the end of the level. The Dungeon Bros have multiple attacks at their disposal. There are regular attacks, heavy attacks, and the ultimate attack. The ultimate attack is very powerful, but limited to a couple of uses until it’s recharged. Sadly, it does not recharge on its own. Thankfully there are vending areas at the end of each level that let you replenish health, power bars, and life hearts. You can spend all your money there or save some of it to buy buffs for the next level.

You begin the game with four lives and can buy more throughout your journey. Money can be found by smashing up vases and crates scattered throughout the levels. Treasure chests are often out of your way, but since they have healing brews and power-ups they’re definitely worth going after. You won’t want to linger since there’s a threat meter that slowly rises and sends waves of enemies when each segment fills up completely.

I’m quite sure that the enemy difficulty scales to the number of players in the game. I did pretty well in the daily and weekly challenges, but didn’t get very far when I played alongside my brother and son. We got our butts handed to us before reaching any minor or major bosses.
The visuals are colorful and there is a good amount of variety in the enemies and randomly generated levels. The challenges are obviously the same to everyone and your goal is to earn the highest score by staying alive and stacking up attack combos.

It’s a shame that there is nobody to play with online. If you have friends to play along with or don’t mind solo challenges, then this game may be worth looking into if it goes on sale. Xbox Gold members were able to get this title for free when it first came out. The launch price was $19.99 and I’ve already seen it in clearance bins at the store.

About Us:

Christ Centered Gamer looks at video games from two view points. We analyze games on a secular level which will break down a game based on its graphics, sound, stability and overall gaming experience. If you’re concerned about the family friendliness of a game, we have a separate moral score which looks at violence, language, sexual content, occult references and other ethical issues.
