Gateway to Apshai is an interesting take on the dungeon crawler. It's an action adventure that puts when to move on to the next floor into the player's hand. There's a timer ticking, so you'll have to move on eventually, but if you move too quickly, you'll find yourself over powered quickly by powerful monsters.
This is another game that resembles rogue-likes, but it lacks character levels. It has stats for the character, but I never saw them go up at all; I can only imagine there are items to increase stats. Once again, the narrow focus of the game really puts this into a hybrid that doesn't quite get it far enough into the RPG genre for my taste. Like Tower of Doom, it's fun and has some promise to eat away the hours, but I can't bring myself to include it here.
The couple times I've played haven't seen me get past the second level. I suspect I was missing some of the controls, but I had a hard time hitting anything with the little sword. Also, the enemies seemed to be moving quicker than they should be, but it could have been a setting I needed to change.
