Windows Phone isn’t exactly crawling with RPGs. They take a lot of time to make and the platform is still young. Enter Pansoft’s Dungeon Stalker, filling the niche of old-school dungeon crawler. Rather than focusing on a story, this game’s all about exploring a multi-leveled dungeon. A compass and an automap greatly assist with navigation. Players will find equipment, learn spells, and battle plenty of enemies along the way.
Dungeon Stalker features a unique magic system in which players select sequences of three runes in order to cast spells. You have to memorize the sequences though, which seems like way more trouble than it’s worth. Luckily melee combat is always an option.
Having played Dungeon Stalker for a short while, I think the game has lots of promise. It’s a little rough looking and crashes kind of frequently, but hopefully the developer will continue to refine it. We need all the RPGs we can get!
Dungeon Stalker costs only 99 cents and there is a free trial. Adventurers will find it here (Zune link) in the Marketplace.

I want this to be good... It froze on me twice though and I kinda gave up :(. First time I turned it on, I made it three steps into the dungeon and the game locked up.Could be promising, but never should have been released in this incomplete a state. Hopefully they get the freezing issues fixed soon.
@DarkHi, I'm the game developer :) Could you please contact me trought the e-mail you will find in the 'About' of the game so that I can help fixing the issues?Regards
Sure, if it'll help!
This game is basically dungeon master -- not quite as good as that game, but very similar. And that game being one of the absolute best of all time, I mean this as high praise.
Looks good in the preview I'll give it a good try, looks like fun.
