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

Only Problem: The music restarting

Awesome game, great old school feel, I can almost imagine being a kid again playing this on SNES or NES even. It is hard,but it's nintendo hard, so people need to stop bitching about that. At least you don't have a set number of lives and continues.

My only bitch, is the whole 'you beat the level, simple little diddle will now override the awesome music that was just playing and restart it. ' or the same thing if you die. Basically if you want to hear the whole song you have to just stand there and listen, which ruins the flow of the gameplay.

Other than that it's fucking great. Hope to see more like it.

Could have been a good little game, but ruined by making it too frustrating and hard....shame :(

Pretty fun, but unforgiving

Great little game, but it will have you pounding you fists on some levels. 10 is a perfect example: your going to die to learn how to get past a part, only to get a little father and die agian! Great graphic and a fun little story. Great job!

AdventureIslands responds:

The latest update is still waiting for administrator approval, but I've updated the game's jump controls. Check back a bit later, you should have much easier time now!

Super Level-Design, nostalgic charm

I finished the game except the Time-Trials (without checkpoints) ...phew - that was hard! But also a lot of fun! Your bottom-up level-design and successive difficulty raise is impressive. Also liked the music and sound effects, nice sprites and a very nostalgic charm. Maybe I died like 500 times during the game (especially at the lava-boss) but still very nice game!
