Dangerous Adventure 2 Released
Chances are, you’re at least passingly familiar with DeqafStudio. They showed us how adorable and effective it is to weaponize kittens and pop culture in StrikeForce Kitty 2. They gave us the creepy-cute trials of a lost little girl in Nelly 2. And hey, when it comes to colour-coded monster massacring, a la Dangerous Adventure, over two million players in two years on Armor Games alone can’t be wrong.
So. Let’s. Get. Dangerous.
Dangerous Adventure 2, just released today, keeps the tile-matching gameplay of the original, but with some new twists and mechanics in addition to a whole new look. You’ll explore dungeons and do battle against enemies in a turn-based setting, where matching runes of different colours can help your heroes take down their foes. The skills your party members possess will come in handy for exploring and completing various tasks, and with tons of quests to complete, including some you’ll need to return to with the proper tools later on, this is one adventure that won’t be over in a hurry. Look, if you haven’t already figured out how to fake a call from the government to your boss/school/significant other excusing you from your obligations for “top secret business” so you can play all day, maybe now’s the time.
If you played the original game, Dangerous Adventure 2 has some surprises. You’ll gain cards you can play during battle, for instance, that can help out in a sticky situation. (Please note that this game also includes completely optional bonus cards and heroes you can purchase if you choose.) Dungeons are considerably more complex, where solving puzzles and even the direction you approach an enemy from can make a big difference. Even combat itself has been tweaked, with the position of a foe on different battle lines incurring different buffs or de-buffs. Hey, you can even put a bard in your party and have them actually be useful in combat! When has that ever happened in an RPG? I know, it’s blowing my mind, too!
Dangerous Adventure 2 represents an enormous amount of work and dedication from a very talented team, and it’s a great choice for would-be heroes who like their RPGs to have strategy, puzzles, and of course, smoochably cute character standees. Look at them! They’re so itty-bitty!
