What is dungeon crawl more like--HQ or WHQ?

Gotta question--

                         This is more in terms of game mechanics--the rolling of the dice etc for combat and game phases themselves---which is dungeon crawl more akin to ---Heroquest or Warhammer Quest?

                          Im not saying its necessarily modeled after any one of these games--im just trying to gauge the simplicity since I want to start playing a game thats fairly easy to learn and passes quickly with my 5 and 7 year old daughters:)

While I never actually got around to playing Warhammer Quest, I did read the rules front to back.  

My goal with Dungeon Crawl was to make a game a bit more involved than HeroQuest, but not as complex as Warhammer Quest.  Dungeon Crawl did take most of its inspiration from HeroQuest.  From the small amount of stats to only using one type of die, the goal was to keep the game simple so as to not get bogged down in too many rules and things to have to look up all the time.

To me, Warhammer Quest was leaning too far towards Dungeons & Dragons, but with less roleplaying and restrictive setting (not that those are bad things).

So my verdict, it's closer to HeroQuest than Warhammer Quest.

I'd say it's trying to do kind of what AHQ does, but without feeling like you're playing a different game.
