A cross between Minesweeper and a dungeon crawl. The beginning screen looks like a regular game of Minesweeper, except there is an adventurer on an uncovered square. You then click on the uncovered boxes and you will click on a wall, an open space, a treasure or a monster. If you are beside one of these things, you get a number that will either be green (for treasures and walls), red (if it's beside a monster) or yellow (if it's beside a combination of the two). You also can move your adventurer by clicking on uncovered squares.
Find the treasure (you don't need to get it but you lose exp if you don't uncover all the treasure), DON'T click on monsters for exp (or kill them but it's better to avoid them until the last level), find the exit, and descend nine levels. Kill the tyrant! FANTASTIC GAME!
I can NOT recommend this one enough, it is the finest "Gem" game I have ever discovered during the past 2 years. I recommend it to anyone that liked dungeon crawls like "Monster's Den" (although this is simpler) and also for anyone that likes Minesweeper. The additional strategy really adds to the fun. Don't forget to read the level intros. I love the little bits of story that was added to each level. My only complaint is all the "wall" clicking you have to do. There could also be a few more dungeon layouts but it's still a great game. There are even rare treasures like wands and stuff.
I love this game. I've talked it up several times to people I have met. I think it's just a fantastic way to spend an hour and hope you give it a chance when looking through the list. I genuinely think this is the best finalist in the game section, regardless of the category, so please give it a try. Tell me what you think. Do you agree with my assessment or think it's a waste of time?
Thank-you for your consideration.
