Rules Set: 4E.


  • Hyde & Geek: “All in all, Level UP is a great replacement for both Dungeon and Dragon magazines and I see potential here for it to top them both. Here's looking forward to issue #2 in July.”
  • Flames Rising: 4.75 out of 5. “Robust and full of both fluff and crunch… Captures the feel of classic gaming magazines of the 80’s while still being modern and easy for newer players to use.”
  • Icosahedrophilia: “There’s a lot to love in this first issue of Level Up, and the magazine is definitely going on my “must buy” list for a while, at least.”
  • Sean.Blog: “The magazine is well produced, and I am looking forward to the next issue.  Here's hoping the sales are strong enough to keep this magazine going for a long time to come.”
  • Dragon Avenue: “If that isn’t worth the price, I don’t know what is. For a couple of bucks you should go and check it out for yourself.”
  • GameCryer: “I think Level Up! could, with good writers and a willingness to wander further from traditional D&D formula, become as good as Dragon Magazine was in the 80s.”
