Dungeon Hunter 4 hits the App Store, unleashes free-to-play RPG fury

Valenthia is beset by demons and only you have the power and prowess to save your people and set your world right. Yes, Gameloft has just released the fourth chapter of their epic RPG series, Dungeon Hunter 4. It's everything you loved about the first three, but with even better, more in-your-demon-face action than ever before.

Dungeon Hunter 4 promises an epic storyline, hundreds of enemies to hack and slash your way through, and lots of loot to reward you for your valiance. There's four classes, so there should be something to appeal to most types of RPG gamers, along with ways to upgrade your skills and customize your character. There are even co-op and PVP modes for you to get your multiplayer game on.

Now here's the bad news. Instead of a premium $9.99 price tag, it's free-to-play, and a lot of gamers don't seem too happy about it. Free to play can be done well, but it's a tricky thing to nail. Hopefully Gameloft listens to the feedback and tweaks the system to make it something everyone can enjoy.

If you've tried it, let me know what you think.
