Let's dive into this dungeon. No reason, other than it being great fun! But first, a bit of history.

Ha! This one (or one of the may derivations?) is one of the games I heard so much about, one of those games I kind of like, yet never played myself. My sister had been playing it hours on end and was quite hooked on it. ;) Sounded like a lot of fun (all the looting and levelling, collecting dew drops of all things in a dungeon) as well as a lot of frustration (yet another curse or ghost, repeatedly dying on level 5 of 25). One day she finally reached the final boss and was so incredibly proud that she even gave me a call. Felt almost like the good old times when we used to game away. :) Or like those times back in school when someone told you about this incredibly cool game… yet it simply would not run on your system.

Dear Sir, I object strongly with the last thread, and the next post.

Meaningless repetition of the same tasks over a long period of time. Japanese RPGs are notorious for that: in order to level up, or reach certain skill levels, you spend hours killing wild forest animals, such as rats or snakes, even though there is virtually no challenge to it.

The game I reviewed some time before, Andor's Trail, was the polar opposite of this game in this respect.
