Swordplay and puzzles combine in this thinking man's dungeon crawl. It's simple to learn, with just a handful of commands to master. But the unique gameplay provides an amazing depth. A detailed overhead view shows monsters, obstacles, and other game elements. You have as much time as you like to contemplate your next move. So this is a good game for relaxing, but also terrifically involving once you get started. You'll be hooked by the story of Beethro and his troublesome nephew, Halph. Our heroes set off on a harmless jaunt, but end up far below the surface, chased by a clownish madman. They begin to uncover a vast, underground bureaucracy, and things only get stranger the further they delve. You've got over 350 rooms ahead--each one a singular challenge for you to conquer. A level editor, online features, and enthusiastic player community make this a game you can play for years.
25 sprawling levels with over 350 custom designed rooms, including secret rooms.
Over twenty-five hours of constantly changing gameplay, plus level editor and modding capabilities.
17 types of monsters with greatly varying abilities and behavior.
11 different characters, some of which contribute to puzzles as well as story development.
15 other game elements including obstacles, potions, explosives, and tunnels.
