Some constructive criticism

Quick message

the First arc of dungeon robotics is well done and I don’t really write reviews but due to the problems of the second arc and beyond I want to help you improve as a writer by giving you some criticism from a third persons point of view

————————————————————————————

The plot

first off the main problem I have with your second arc is the very factor that way too many things are introduced an example of this is when you introduced the god system or spirts and est. what this ends up doing is slowing down the arc with information or new mechanics that aren’t really needed for the story to progress towards the main focus of an arc and end up make us the reader feel like the progress of the story is slowed and results in us not caring about all these new things. This is called chekhov’s gun; you need to remove everything that has no real relevance to the story. Adding a god like system in the middle of an arc that should be focusing on dealing with necromancy and saving a nearby dungeon just ends up make it us feel like the story isn’t progressing at all and results in us not caring whats so ever about this. You need to ask your self “if I remove this section of the story will it change the story as a whole” every section of a story needs to show some clear progress. A great video about this is the act man’s video on why halo 5’s campaign is so bad it’s a weird video to recommend but watching videos like this that point out mistakes that writers make can really help you get better (note that it’s fine having these small side story as long as it develops a character or adds on to or helps build the world.)

———————————————————————————

The characters 

the problem with having multiple povs is the very fact the each character should have a distinct goal and direction that they work towards and each with a different need or desire that they may or not know. In addition each character needs to feel like they are naturally going towards it in a realistic way. The one character that struggles with this is izora. We never really have a clear idea of her goal and her actions in the story ;in fact, she ends up feeling like a doll in the story where she only really shows up in the story to help explain a new system you added in or help build on it. This ends up making her the most boring or dull character to read about because it just feels like she  a mentally ill person who changes personality quickly in order to progress the story or introduce a new problem that won’t factor into the story for a long period of time

————————————————————————————

Edit: kinda wanna make this a bit clearer but to sum everything up your story has a clear objective that your character should be working towards but what ends up happening is that something pops up and they get side tract. a few examples is how izora’s mom died and how this major incident should have pushed her to get revenge or pushed her to help her father fix all these problems and in its own way develop izora as a character and possibly create a character that motivates us to never give up instead you made her completely forget that it ever happened and instead of going on a great adventure to discover herself she try’s to prove that our mc is a god to her people. Same can be said about Louella as a character she has a clear goal of wanting to make a city that can bring peace to the kingdoms but as a person she needs to know that not all her problems can be solved by just asking Regan and that she herself needs to be able to stand up for herself and deal with the problems of running a city. Regan in other hands has a clear way to progress the story but in a lot of the later chapters instead of working on it or focusing on it he ends up getting side tracked and it frustrates me due to how often it happens that the pacing of the story slows and returns to its roots with this clear objective that gets delayed over and over again. In a rewrite the quality of this story will grow but currently it sort of feels like a collection of interesting ideas that aren’t developed enough similar to halo 5’s campaign if you fix all these problems you have a pretty solid story where every chapter progress the story in a way instead of a place where a chapter introduces a problem but is pushed back and solved after a long period of time

This story starts off strong with a futuristic world that robots have taken over. The main character is killed and reincarnated, not as a hero, a villain or anything in between, but as a dungeon core. 

I personally havent read anything like this and found it really entertaining, struggling to put the book down. 

If you havent read a novel about an overseeing entity before then i really recomend you do, as it gives a different perspective on "dungeon diving"

I love this story, I'm always a fan of the mixing of modern tech and fantasy elements but this author takes the time to really put together a great blending of the elements. The MC is smart but no stick in his old ways and knowledge and he learns from the world around him. There are other POVs that do a great job of exploring the  effects the MC has and adding some dimensions to the world you cant get from the same perspective all the time. 

Also, the most important thing is(while it makes me sad at times) the releases of chapters are spread out enough it feels like the story isnt rushed and the author is taking the time to really build a world here. Too often I read similar-wish stories that start out strong but release so often they quickly back themselves into a corner without noticing and it's good to see this author avoiding that. I wish there was more to read like any other fan here but I'm confident the author will keep telling an amazing tale and I personally will always be looking forward to the next chapter. 

Keep rocking it man, I'm loving it.

Give it a spin, if only to tide you over.

Has a good concept and backstory but grammar is a bit down and the writer doesn't seem to write what he knows, and instead glosses over the more technical parts. Which is a deal breaker for me considering the books genre and core concept. Overall is better than most of the crap on this site but poor execution.

Character focused dungeon story

It's really great, one of the stories I look out for when it updates.  Dungeon stories have different flavors, and this is definitely a more character focused one with some good romance vibes.  It's a great story because it does those parts well.  Can't wait to read more

Finally, an original and quality dungeon story!

I quite enjoy this story. There's a lot of cool lore that's still being expanded on, and the MC, while OP, is still challenged and relevant to the plot.

There are some typos, especially in the earlier chapters, but it's not too bad, and it's free.

I look forward to learning more about the setting.

Fantastic - Original and High Quality

This is my first review for a fiction on this site and i've read quite a lot of them, but this is the first one that actually prompted me to make an account and leave a review. I've binged this fiction for the last 4 days non-stop and I can say with absolutely certainty it's in my top 5 of the entire LitRPG genre which i've been an avid reader of for the last 4 years. The originality of it all while still sticking to tried and true LitRPG elements has been a breath of fresh air. Although there is the occasional spelling/grammar issue the author clearly has made an effort to improve over time as they care about their story and wants to keep it at a high standard for fans. The characters are interesting and well developed and the story line has kept me going from chapter to chapter as everything unfolds before me. I find the world interesting and am severely disappointed i'm at Chapter 27 and almost caught up, but incredibly happy to see that there's updates THREE times a week which is incredibly satisfying to me. My words for the author are please keep it up as you're doing amazing, and for any potential readers please give this story a try. If you're a fan of authors like Dakota Krout then you won't be disappointed in Dungeon Robotics as you'll love the writing of Dragonsunxx too.

As of Chapter 37.2

Dungeon Stories are ten a penny on RR and most of them are as predictable as a story can be. Dungeon Robotics manages to avoid this pitfall by focussing more on story and less on wish fulfillment. That's not the say the dungeon MC isn't completely and utterly OP and effortlessly curbstomps anything and everything that crosses him; just that the story doesn't build up battles that amount to nothing and pretend that he is anything other than a monster in need of nerfing. 

What makes it special is that it gives what would normally be, side or extra characters that chance to shine and show themselves to be the MC in their own stories. The characters themselves do tend to be slightly one note and less well rounded than they could be but they aren't caricatures of themselves and while they do fit into well-known tropes, they aren't defined solely be their archetype. 

The grammar situation is somewhat complicated. While it is never a real problem and even at it's worst is more than readable, there is a steady improvement over the course of the series. The author clearly cares about improving his writing and it shows as the story goes on. Nearly every chapter has at least one or two minor errors, missed words or missing plurals "he ran forward swinging both sword" etc. If you are a strict grammar nazi (why are you on RR?) you may have a problem with early chapters but for the majority of readers, Dungeon Robotics sits in the upper tier of RR stories. 

So yeah, is it perfect? No. Does it revolutionise the genre and offer something completely new and never before seen? No. Is it worth your time and a genuinely enjoyable read? Yes, Definitely.

THIS IS A ORIGINAL AND QUALITY DUNGEON STORY!

This is the best dungeon story I have run into and honestly my favorite thing to read on  Royal Roads. The characters the ever-developing plot, the interactions between the characters, and finally the beautiful intriguing, diverse and most of all well-built world in which the characters interact and live is truly amazing. I cannot recommend this story enough to anyone who enjoys dungeon fantasy or fantasy in general or sci-fi. This story is truly the best and I hope everyone who reads this at least gives the story a try. I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as I do.

Great spin on a dungeon core idea!

There are many Dungeon Core stories out there but this one is a promising candidate for my favorite.  

Currently there are 28 chapters and I read through them quickly in one sitting because I couldn't put this story down. The main character has an intriguing backstory, he has need of redemption, and his interaction with the others around him are very believable.  

This is certainly set to become one of my top 10 reads of Royal Road.
