In most dungeon-crawling games, you’re dealing with hideous monsters, deadly traps, and maybe even some haunting supernatural elements. These games will test your skills and resolve in serious, challenging gameplay that often doesn’t leave any room for levity or humor. Unless, of course, you’re playing Munchkin Digital.
Munchkin Digital is a hilarious, dungeon-crawling card game adventure developed and published by Dire Wolf. It was adapted from the card game of the same name, and it brings with it all of the madcap fun and hilarity of the physical version with a few extra bells and whistles that can only be present in a video game. So whether you’ve played Munchkin and are excited about the digital version, or if this is your first exposure to the title, here is everything you need to know about Munchkin Digital.
All Fun, No Fluff
Munchkin Digital takes the greatest aspect of its inspiration and fully implements it. It is a dungeon-crawling game, but without the kind of RPG mechanics you might expect from a game in that genre. This isn’t Darkest Dungeon, though the presentation is similar in several ways.
No, Munchkin Digital is fun-first, and it lets you know that right from the beginning. There are no skill points, classes, or jobs to get in the way. You select your Munchkin and dive into the game immediately, fighting funny enemies like the Drooling Slime and Potted Plant using wacky weapons like the Boots of Butt-Kicking and the Staff of Napalm. One thing is for sure, there’s a laugh around every corner in Munchkin Digital.
Everything that happens in Munchkin Digital is based on the cards you draw. Each time you start the game, your ultimate goal of collecting as much treasure as you can will be stymied by the deck of Monster, Curse, Door, and Treasure cards that will show up. Through a series of rounds and random draws, your fate will be determined.
Every time you kill a monster and collect treasure, your Munchkin will level up. Once you reach level 10, you win! This is easier said than done, of course, and the cards have a mysterious way of ruining your game when it seems to be going well.
Fun with Friends
The community that built the original Munchkin game up did so thanks to the game’s inherent camaraderie building. Even when you’re stealing a friend’s treasure or stabbing them in the back, Munchkin makes it fun. And Munchkin Digital is no different.
Enjoy Munchkin Digital not just with friends in online multiplayer, but also with friends on other platforms thanks to the built-in cross-platform multiplayer system. Whether solo or in a crew, Munchkin Digital is a ton of fun.
