Dungeon Keeper (iOS/Android): Top 12 Tips, Tricks and Cheats

Dungeon Keeper is the reboot of the popular real time strategy series that made its name on PCs awhile back. The new iOS and Android game is positioned as a competitor to games such as Clash of Clans and Castle Clash, but of course, there’s the added psuedo-tower-defense element where you can build and destroy pathways that attackers will have to go through in order to get to you. Read on for the top twelve tips and tricks for Dungeon Keeper for the iOS and Android!

12) Maximize the number and levels of your stone storages and your treasuries.
Treasures hold your gold while stone storages hold your stones. Upgrade both of them or else you will max out very quickly, and when they are not upgraded enough, you will not be able to do the necessary upgrades (such as to the Dungeon Heart) and build the more advanced buildings.

11) Slap your imps around every chance you get.
Whenever you slap your imps, they will have a 2X construction speed bonus for half an hour. This is completely free to do and it can DRASTICALLY cut down on the time needed to build stuff. You can do this at any time, even when they are in the middle of construction.

10) Make complicated pathways around your dungeon to foil and confuse opposing players.
Don’t just stick with the stock square shaped paths. Make spiraling or zig zagging paths that players will have to spend a long time walking through, and that will make minions more likely to hit the traps and to get shot by nearby rooms with defensive capabilities.

9) Move your stock treasury and stone storage to different locations.
To do this, tap and hold, and you will be able to move them anywhere that there is space. It’s recommended to move them closer to the center of the stage so that they have more rooms and traps guarding them. In their starting positions, they are VERY easy to get to, raid and destroy.

8) Prepare for battle by building and upgrading Hatcheries.
This is HUGELY important because battle is such a numbers game. Each new hatchery adds 5 housing spaces and each additional hatchery upgrade will add yet another 5 housing spaces, allowing you to send in massive armies at any given time.

7) Dig through the gem veins and the hard gem veins to earn free gems.
This requires a lot of patience, but luckily, there are a TON of gem veins around, so always set your imps to work before you go to bed at night, so that you can wake up in the morning with 10 gems per hard vein or 3 gems per normal vein. Also, dig through the normal dirt and you may find bonus gems as well.
