‘Shattered Pixel Dungeon’ revisits the roots of the gaming world in a classic dungeon crawling RPG. Players must choose from one of four different heroes when they start the game. The four hero classes are Mage, Warrior, Rogue, and Huntress.

Each hero has unique abilities and will be suited to a specific playstyle. There are 8 subclasses that will allow players to further specialize their heroes to suit their unique playstyle. The game offers skill points, known as Talents, which players can use to develop their hero’s skills and make them more powerful as they crawl through the dark dungeons of the game.

There are 5 different dungeon regions with unique terrain. Each of the 5 regions has 26 floors for players to work their way through, killing enemies, searching for treasure, and picking up skill points as they go.

Dungeon layout and enemy positions and fortifications are completely randomized, ensuring players will have a completely new experience each time they run a dungeon, even if they repeat the same dungeon multiple times.

“Shattered Pixel Dungeon” has a wide range of different types and classes of enemies, equipment, weapons and usable items. The incredible variety of enemy types, weapons, and items allows players to experiment with different strategies for different situations.

Effective strategy and clever use of weapon and skill combinations in conjunction with consumables are key to achieving victory and successfully escaping dungeons.

“Shattered Pixel Dungeon” is developed by “Shattered Pixel” and was released on Steam on March 23, 2022.
