Loved DD? Want more levels? Check out Dangerous Christmas!

Disclaimer: If things get too rough, turn on the checkpoints from the main menu. Be careful though because you will not earn achievements while you are using them.

Dangerous Dungeons tells us a story about Timmy, a little thief- err, treasure hunter, who has arrived to a deep and dark dungeon, ready to face the dangers inside to claim the biggest treasure in the world. DD Has been made to look and play like old classic platformers, so it can be quite challenging, so watch out! Awesome music by KungFuFurby!


Use arrow keys to move and Z to jump. (can be changed from main menu)
Activate Switches and pick up keys by simply touching them.
Press R to restart a stage.
Press P to pause the game.
Press Esc to return to the main menu.

Doors in the stage selection open when you reach their corresponding stage the first time in either normal gameplay or Time Attack. The game will save between stages, so you can always continue your adventure later without losing progress!

Time Attack Mode:
If you choose Time Attack from the main menu, the game skips the intro and all cutscenes, and the game begins right away from the Stage 1. In this mode, two counters appear in the top right corner, other counts how long it took you to beat the game, other counts your total deaths. The final scores will be saved on scoreboards at the end of the game. Returning to main menu or entering secret stage the normal way will terminate your time so be careful!

Secret Stages:
The game has three hidden levels that are required to be beaten for you to reach the definitely final stage. You will receive hints how to find them after you beat Stage 30. These stages are not entered from doors, but by exiting the screen from the right area.

The game has won the Summer Game Jam 2011 contest! ex.php/topic,1968.0.html

I like it.

Great game. Just having a lot of issues with controlling the height of my jumps. Would be nice to have a low/medium/high jump key for those with keyboards that stick.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Well, I sorta beat it...

Given the difficulty of this game (and therefore the time already spent in it) I'm not too motivated to search for the secret levels. It was kind of fun at first, but soon became VERY meticulous and unforgiving. Checkpoints were a nice touch; However: disabling a 10 point achievement for having 1 checkpoint halfway through a level that takes about 100 tries to complete? Really?

Art and music both get my highest marks. And even though I bitch about the difficulty, it's at least done on purpose. No "fake difficulty" due to poor programming here! Your controls are fluid and consistent. Hitboxes were a little big at times (especially the flame jets), but once you get used to it, it wasn't a big deal.

If you made the secret stages unlock for, say, beating the corresponding boss without checkpoints, that might motivate me to continue playing.

Actually you can enter the secret stages at any point of the game, you just need to find where they are, but you receive the hints of their location only after beating stage 30. Then you are free to explore any stage you have beaten, you can just enter the stage, look around, then escape with Esc. Goto stage selection, enter new stage, rince and repeat till you find them.

You are right about the medals though, I will boost the ammount of points they give.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


Everything about this game just keeps reminding me of the days that I played on the Super Nintendo, with its graphic design to its music. It also keeps reminding me of the "legend of Zelda" series as well, how the hero is mostly covered in green, the fact that he to also explores dungeons, and to top it off the that one of the bosses is a giant disturbing sphere that is coming towards you; just like the moon in Majora's Mask.

AdventureIslands responds:

The music actually is genuine SNES music, composed by KungFuFurby.

I choose the main character to wear green clothes because it was a good color that would make him easier to spot from the otherwise dark tiles and background and wouldn't be too eye catching to bother the player.

Why everybody here do big reviews?

AdventureIslands responds:

I personally prefer to have long and detailed statements what people liked and what people didn't like in the game.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Has potential

But the difficulty level is just WAAAAAAAAAY up there. As in, pixel-perfect-stupid levels of difficulty.

Some checkpoints would be nice. Even the old Super Mario Bros. had checkpoints on its toughest levels.

AdventureIslands responds:

The next update is going to include Checkpoints, they can be turned on from the main menu and they will appear on the longest and hardest stages, but you don't earn medals from secret stages or bosses if you are using them.
