Dunjonquest: Datestones of Ryn (Check Map)

Recommended Posts

I have been playing the Dunjonquest games again on the Atari 8-Bit. I get the itch every few years, you know? I still need to complete the The Curse of Ra maps for levels 3 and 4 for the Apshai Maps thread, here:

In the meantime, to whet my appetite, last night (and part of today) I played Dunjonquest: The Datestones of Ryn, which I had not really played before last night. This is not a full-fledged game like The Temple of Apshai; "Datestones" is a mini-quest. The game's box looks like this:

A screenshot of the game looks like this:

I mapped the game, including checking for secret doors and traps in every room. I could only find one secret door, which is in a place that you can reach anyway. I know that this is a mini-quest, but this map is small; really, really small. There are only nine rooms (not counting hallways). Check out the map I made today:

I really feel like I must have overlooked something. Can this map possibly be complete? The game has a twenty-minute time limit for gameplay, but this maps seems ridiculously small.

 

I'm hoping that there are a few Apshai/Dunjonquest fans out there who would be willing to play the game and see if they can find anything more than I found. The game can be downloaded from Atarimania, here:

Is anyone willing to take a stab at looking my map over while they play the game?

Noticed while going through various threads that this map looks the same as the bottom right corner of the first level of Apshai Trilogy:

Wow. Content re-use!

 

I didn't notice that! There not similar... but exactly the same. I wonder if any of the other Dunjonquest game do that?

Thanks for the map. Yes I can confirm there is no more secret doors and rooms, didn't check traps, but I am not going there again. :) Nice catch with the content reuse thing!

This game is so small if there is no other content. I know it's meant to be a fast adventure, but it's a very quick one.

Yes, but for 20 "minutes" gameplay is really enough. I was able to finish it all within 17 minutes without fighting too much, with fighting with every monster it might not be possible.
