Niche Spotlight – DungeonTop


Today’s Spotlight is DungeonTop, a roguelite deckbuilding game with tabletop-style battles by One Up Plus Entertainment and Surefire Games.

Choose your class and allegiance before diving into dangerous, procedurally generated dungeons set in the Spellsword Cards universe. Battles are played on a grid-based board that places an emphasis on positioning. Your cards can flank enemy cards, and you can protect your squishy ranged units with tanky frontline brawlers.

As with many deckbuilding games, you’ll earn gold for defeating monsters that can be spent at shops to buy new cards, upgrade existing ones, or remove unwanted cards. You can find the release content update gameplay trailer below.

DungeonTop is available on Windows PC via Steam for $15.99.

You can find a rundown of the game (via Steam) below:

A rogue-like deck-building game with table top battles! Choose a hero and allegiance then dive into the dungeon and build your deck as you battle!

DungeonTop is a fresh new take on the roguelike deckbuilding genre, bringing a flavour of tight table top battles into the mix. Employ clever board tactics to gain advantage such as range, flanking, tanking and rushing.

A balance of risk to reward greets you both in an out of battle. Progression in DungeonTop could mean two things, grabbing more gold, or defeating more monsters! Play it your way. Will you build for cunning, speed, or power? Your choices in the dungeon directly influence your chance of survival!

There are shops to upgrade your cards along with ways to remove them and plenty of loot to add. Adventuring in the dungeon allows you to level your hero, find powerful weapons to equip, artifacts to use and talents to master. Build your unique fantasy hero by making careful choices on what to learn, what to discard and who to fight.

The choice of hero class will affect your play style and spells, whilst the allegiance you choose affects what minions you’ll have to fight with. There are scores of achievements, treasures to find, gold to gather and more than 800 powerful cards to unlock.

As the third instalment in the Spellsword Cards universe, DungeonTop will have you exploring a plethora of deck-building options for hours on end, continually finding new inventive ways to succeed on and off the board!
