Dungeons & Coin
What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Dungeons & Coin is a game with a very simple "coin pushing" aspect, but also a role-playing aspect that is nearly impossible to figure out. There's also a heavy commercial element to the game, in that kids will be tempted to spend their virtual coins on game items (many of which don't appear to have any use in the game -- or at least none that was readily apparent), and then have no coins left to play the game with. More coins cost real money.
Is it any good?
DUNGEONS & COIN takes the simplicity of "coin pusher" games -- which is really the only thing to like about them -- and warps it into a confusingly convoluted role-playing game. There's a store, at which you can waste your coins on items that don't seem to have any impact on the game. There's a spot where you can equip spells, weapons, and potions, but nothing to tell you how to use those things. There are different colored orbs that you can earn, that will fall down among the coins. They seem to be important -- but what do they do? At its best, this is a tedious coin-dropping game; at its worst, it's a confusing mess that can eat up your real money.
