Dungeon Hunter 4, the latest installment in Gameloft’s popular hack and slash franchise is live in the Google Play store and it looks great. The long-awaited sequel looks to be a refinement of the previous games’ Diablo lite style and has single player content as well as several multiplayer modes.
From the Play Store:

It looks quite nice, graphically, from the screenshots. It’s no eye-melter for sure, Gameloft obviously had maximum compatibility in mind, but the background and lighting look great and art direction is fittingly medieval. The 2.5D presentation works well for this type of game and the rendered characters tromping around the scenery look nice and smooth, if a bit polygonal.
It’s free on the Play store now but Gameloft has opted to use in app purchases to make their money and I know this is a deal breaker for some. Personally, it depends a lot on the presentation. If the content is there, and the game can be played without the in app purchase items then I’m ok with it. We’ll see how Gameloft walks that line in this release.
It should run on most devices in people’s pockets today including my practically antique Droid 3 so expect a closer look soon!
