Deep in the Catacomb

Deepstone Catacomb

Far below the surface, the evil Dark Lord Kram, his army of Undead Soldiers, and three ferocious Dragons guard an unimaginable lot of treasure. They stood undisturbed for a millennia until the band of ten foolish Thieves attempted to pillage the depths below. They did not make it far however. Only one was able to escape alive.

In anger, Kram attacked the Kingdom of Traidon.

He recklessly set flame to everything in his path, kidnapped Princess Robyn and caged her twenty-six floors down into the very dark underworld of the Catacomb.

The Princess is now in great danger. Her only hope is someone skilled enough to come to her rescue.

This is your chance to prove yourself. You must do what it takes to defeat the Dark Lord!

How to Play

When the game begins, your Lives are on the bottom left and your Health Bar is on the bottom right of the screen. You control the Warrior of the Realm, so take the Sword that was left by one of the fallen Thieves. Your goal is to explore the entire floor, clear the many rooms and corridors of enemies and collect the items left behind.

Once found, stand on the ladder to enter the next floor. The current floor number will be displayed in place of your Score at the start of each level. You cannot go back to the previous floor, so make sure you have explored all areas before climbing down the ladder.

You must defeat the three Dragons and the Dark Lord before you will be able to rescue Princess Robyn!

Got this game a week after Christmas Day and it did not disappoint at all! Fantastic action-adventure game (heavy on the action, light on the adventure/puzzle solving), akin to overhead action-adventure games like Secret Quest, The Legend of Zelda, Golvellius, Golden Axe Warrior, etc. I've made it to Level 7 and I'm hoping to make it all the way down! Highly recommended!

I found this one to be a fantastic dungeon crawl! One might even get a sense of it having a sort of Venture vibe to it. Great work by Mr. Muze.

This game is absolutely amazing. Simple, yet extremely effective. Boss fights are awesome, Cannot stop playing. I like the 3 different modes. Ensures you'll be playing for a long time. This was the game I was most excited about this year and it delivered.

I'm a fan of "rogue-like" action adventure RPGs and this is about as close as you can get to modern equivalents of those games on the Atari 2600. Heavily influenced by "The Legend of Zelda" and "Adventure", this game delivers with nice graphics, sound and good gameplay.

The first "quest" took me a few play sessions to beat and I'm working on the the tougher 2nd quest now. I do wish there were at least a couple more items to find in the dungeon (like a shield to block enemy projectiles), but the quick and easy approach works well for these kinds of games.

I highly recommend this one, it was worth the wait for the physical release!
