After reading the Destructoid review at http://www.destructoid.com/destructoid-rev...re-128154.phtml, I'm just really excited to play this. I've never played a dungeon crawler like this, but I've been playing D&D with my friends for like 10 years now, and this game seems to have the same sort of thing going on.

Have you tried Etrian Odyssey 1 or 2? They're both excellent DS games, and practically the same as the Dark Spire.

I'm not much for RPG's these days, but I might give this a go because it reminds me of the old RPG's I played on the C64 years ago.

Hmm...Gamestop has it listed as shipping.....we should see a dump within the next day or two.

No, I've never even heard of them! I think I'll wait for Dark Spire first to bust my dungeon crawling cherry, and then I'll go play those too. Haha.

Just picked it up. The music in the game is pretty good and the soundtrack came as a bonus.

Dumped it to my slot 2 Supercard SD to test. Works fine.

RARed it's about 9MB and extracted it's about 27MB
I don't remember what it was trimmed.
edit: wonder what sending me a PM would do

Hmm...27megs extracted sounds like that is the trimmed version already. DS ROMs come in 8, 16, 32, 64, 128 and 256 meg sizes ONLY, when they haven't been trimmed.

I do love dungeon crawlers like Diablo, Dungeon Siege and more recently Orcs & Elves, but reading Dtoid's review seemed that this game is kinda so hard. Will try it.

Hope its more Hack n' slash like Orcs and Elves.

I just wish it had 6 playable characters as you traveled the dungeons. When I played all those old Gold Box D&D games on the C64 ~20 years ago, they had six character parties. Why can't these new-fangled systems handle that?
