Dungeons & Dragons: The Animated Series is a fantastic, old-school, side-scrolling beat ‘em up based on the classic 80’s TV series.
Made by ZVitor (creator of Marvel Infinity War and Justice League Unlimited), this OpenBOR-powered brawler features all six of the show’s heroes as playable characters: Hank, Bobby, Sheila, Presto, Diana, & Eric, each with their own unique skills and combat styles. There are four unlockable characters: Bruenor, Strongheart, Warduke, Venger.
All the characters, enemies and settings from the show are faithfully recreated, but the game actually goes even further with some innovative new additions. Perhaps most impressive is the fact that you can instantly switch between characters at the touch of a button – so you don’t have to stick with just one character until your credit is used up. Not only does that add a nice bit of variety, it allows you to make use of different characters' skills for different situations. There's also a light RPG element to the game, as you collect upgrades and level up.
Overall, the vibrant visuals, big bosses, challenging gameplay and varied settings make Dungeons & Dragons: The Animated Series a must-play.
