Software Product Description

Grab your sword and start chopping your way to the bottom of a vast dungeon! Learning how to play is simple--you move Beethro in one of eight directions or rotate his sword clockwise or counter-clockwise. Examine a detailed overhead view of an underground room, and plan Beethro's movements with care, always keeping his sword between him and the critters. You can wait as long as you like before moving, and logical problem-solving is paramount, but the game still has a sense of action as you lay waste to hordes of nasties.

Each room of the dungeon is a handcrafted challenge for you to complete, with chambers and corridors purposefully designed to befuddle. In DROD you will find numerous game elements, some of which I can guarantee you've never seen in any other game. There is a huge amount of exploration in wait for you, but if you should complete Dugan's Dungeon or would simply like a break from it, you can also try your hand at architecting your own dungeons with the new level editor.

DROD has been praised by many for its originality, and has enjoyed a growing cult following since 1997. If you've never played the game, well... you just have to! If you've already seen it, check out the latest incarnation of this classic puzzler. This is a from-scratch rewrite of the original with years of work put into it by several developers.

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This game will have you tearing your hair out by the roots in the later levels. It's frustrating to the point that you'll want to hurl yourself over a cliff in frustration, and maddening to the point where you'll want throw yourself in the path of a fully loaded semi-truck when you can't figure out how to deal with the 'Living Tar.' And it's all over too soon. This game will have your brain dripping out of your ears; if you fancy yourself a 'smart guy' give this game a look for a healthy dose of humility.
