* AllegedlyFreeGame: The mobile/tablet reboot game is being held up as one of the very worst, most decadent example of Allegedly Free on the market. After loading up your first map, the first thing you will do is click on a block tile, and be told you must wait for you minions to dig it out. This takes up to ''twenty four real-time hours!'' Oh, but you can spend in-game gems to clear out block faster, until you realize your 400 starting gems will clear out maybe two blocks before you have to spend about four US dollars or three UK pounds per 500 more gems.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: In the second game, keeping the camera over Mistresses "working" in your torture chamber for too long will result in the Mentor warning you that [[ADateWithRosiePalms "You'll go blind, you know."]]

A sequel was released in 1999 and athird installment was planned but [[WhatCouldHaveBeen never produced]]. The series has quite a few [[SpiritualSuccessor Spiritual Successors]] in ''VideoGame/EvilGenius'', ''VideoGame/{{Overlord}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Startopia}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Dungeons}}'', and (arguably) ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' and ''[[VideoGame/WhatDidIDoToDeserveThisMyLord Badman]].'' There is also a board game called ''[[http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/45315/dungeon-lords Dungeon Lords]]'' that is a non-video game SpiritualSuccessor. A SpiritualSuccessor by the name of ''VideoGame/{{War for the Overworld}}'', appeared on UsefulNotes/{{Steam}} Early Access after a [[http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/subterraneangames/war-for-the-overworld successful funding]] through Website/{{Kickstarter}}, and is looking like the closest thing to a third DK installment that will ever see the light of day. Cyanide Studios (Famous for the ''TabletopGame/BloodBowl'' videogames) and Paradox Interactive have released another spiritual successor titled ''VideoGame/{{Impire}}'' and set in Ardania, the setting of the ''Videogame/{{Majesty}}'' series and its spinoffs.

A pair of management games by Creator/BullfrogProductions which put the player in the role of a fantasy EvilOverlord responsible for constructing a dungeon, recruiting an army of monsters and seeing off [[TabletopRPG RPG]] style hero invasions.

''Dungeon Keeper'' put RTS in a surprisingly small-scale setting -- the player runs a dungeon full of monsters, treasure and other goodies, and must defend it from incoming heroic adventurers. It was also one of the first games to include a "first person" mode, in which the Keeper could "possess" one of his creatures.
