Diablo Immortal's got an uphill battle to convince gamers of its good intentions

By now, you've probably heard all about Blizzard's blunder of an announcement for Diablo Immortal, an upcoming mobile MMORPG. Of all places, Blizzard chose to reveal this game at BlizzCon, which didn't go over too well with the hardcore fans that attend such an event. But now that the dust has settled a little, many of us are still left wondering if Diablo Immortal is actually a cheaply made mobile MMORPG or a rightful member of the franchise. If anything, Blizzard's refusal to comment on the monetization is somewhat worrying.

DotEmu Will Bring PC Dungeon Crawler Titan Quest To Android Later This Year

Have I mentioned lately that DotEmu is awesome? Because it is, and not just because it's the only Android game developer that sounds like a dating service for flightless birds. The company specializes in porting old console and PC games to Android and iOS, perfectly preserving graphics and game mechanics while adding great extras like controller support and Google Play Games integration. At the E3 gaming conference in Los Angeles, DotEmu announced that its next release will be Titan Quest.

Titan Quest was originally released for the PC in 2006. It's a modern take on the top-down dungeon crawler formula typified by Diablo, but instead of a Heaven vs.

[New Game] Dungeon Crawler Archangel Is Inspired By Diablo And Powered By Unity

Blizzard released Diablo seventeen years ago, and its effect on the dungeon crawler genre is still being felt. Take Archangel for example: ostensibly a technical demo for the cross-platform Unity game engine, this title could have used almost any kind of format to show off its graphical prowess. Instead it's a pretty brazen Diablo clone, including the supernatural themes and "kill everything that moves" gameplay.

Maybe that's a little harsh - the trailer does show off some special moves that can only be activated via touchscreen gestures, in a sort of mobile translation of the brush attacks from console favorite Okami.

Gameloft's Official Game For Thor: The Dark World Teased, Looks Like A Marvel Version Of Diablo

Marvel's march towards complete domination of superhero cinema continues: the second Thor movie (and the second Marvel movie this year) is scheduled to hit theaters in November. Gameloft continues its partnership with Marvel, and the publisher has just posted a teaser trailer for the mobile tie-in to Thor: The Dark World. And it actually looks pretty OK - Thor's doing his thing, kicking some Asgard in an isometric top-down dungeon crawler.

Of course, since Gameloft doesn't really do the whole "originality" thing, it looks quite a lot like existing games in the genre, namely Diablo and Torchlight. But there's only so many ways you can make a dungeon crawler, so we'll forgive them for that.
