    The Android version of the game is even worse.

    EA steers angry customers away from reviewing games at Google Play The Verge

    Two-time "Worst Company In America" winner Electronic Arts isn't doing its publicity department any favours. The company's new freemium game Dungeon Keeper tricks frustrated players into leaving bad reviews on its own site, instead of on the Google Play Store, Gamasutra reports.

    Here's exactly how the ruse plays out: Dungeon Keeper, like most mobile apps, prompts players every so often to give it a rating on the Google Play Store or App Store. In the Android version of the game, there are two possible outcomes when you get a rating prompt. If you choose five stars, you're gently nudged over to the Google Play Store to leave a review. If you choose between one and four stars, Dungeon Keeper pops up an email form where you can only send feedback to developer EA instead of publicly voicing your concerns. You can still, of course, manually visit the Google Play Store and leave a bad review, but in a world where the difference between a success or failure of an app often comes down to its reviews, EA is stacking the deck in its favor.

    I can ALWAYS hate EA more.

    I even borrow hate from other things to do it.

    I think I am going to go for War for the Overworld :-)

    Although I did start playing Dungeon Keeper on my Mac at home and stuck at the same old level as when I was a youngun.

    The thing is, if they had release theme hospital like this, I don't think we would of minded so much, taking a day to build say the operating theatre, but a Day to dig in DK - HELL NO!!!!!

    I want to get WFTO, but I think I'm going to wait. This is one of those games I know I'm going to absolutely hammer once it's out and I don't want to over-play it before it's completed.
    As for this version of Dungeon Keeper? Blah. It can go and rot. Still haven't bought DK from Gog, but that's because there's apparently a lot of compatibility issues with Win7. Anyone bought it who can confirm if it works or not?

    @Garacesh

    I have it running in DOSbox on a mac, so surely you can use DOSbox to run it within Windows 7. I can find the startup and mapping script used for it (on my home MacBook Pro so will have to be this evening), but it will need adapting for windows over a self-contained mac app. :-)

    I was thinking the same thing about WFTO

    Dungeon Keeper runs flawlessly in DOSBox. You may need to tweak the DOSBox ini to emulate a computer closer to what is appropriate for DK. If I recall, it was running a bit slow out of the (dos)box, so I had to increase the cycles and other settings to get it to run at a suitable speed.

    Alternatively, run a virtual machine of Win95 or 98 and install it there.

    DK II, however, has issues...

    Best voice over ever. Alot of voice over for a game of that age too.

    2:55 onwards gets odd "theirs that smell again" "my god its full of pies" "your minions crave chocolate"

    ooh, what is deeper dungeons???? I too still have my original disc and I have been playing the mobile one and getting annoyed with it. I would gladly have paid 5 for the game if it didn't have all the scam purchase stuff and I'm going to get my old game out my mums loft to start playing again so I can bin off this rubbish on my phone.

    Thanks for the tip-off. I actually think my dad still has the CD install disc somewhere at his as I bought it when it came out...but have signed up for the free copy.

    Does GoG support steam or do all games purchased there have normal downloads?
    Only ask as I saw Hammerwatch there (Hammerwatch for download $1.59 - GOG.com) which is awesome, I got through steam, so didn't know if buying stuff there gives steam keys
