Description

Dungeons of Daggorath was one of the first games that attempted to portray three-dimensional dungeon space in a real-time environment, using angled lines to give the illusion of depth. While Daggorath was visually similar to these other games, a prelude to TES I: Arena and TES II: Daggerfall, it added several elements of strategy, such as different kinds of monsters, complex mazes, different levels of visibility, and the use of different objects and weapons.

Yes, only with the keyboard! The game was released back in 1982 for the Tandy TRS-80 Color Computer... this before the invention of the Mouse! There was a slot for game cartridges like Commodore 64 or Atari 2600. And the harddrive was a tape recorder and cassette. This was even pre-DOS and Windows using Basic Programming. The game has been ported over to Windows using a DOS emulator.

tip.
creatures will pick up items dropped on the ground one at a time before attacking you. so throw down your used torches etc where you stand and you can get in free attacks. the more items you have on the ground the longer you'll be able to get in free hits.

some smaller creates like the scorpion i believe will not try to pick up items.

Thanks for the Tip!!! Dropping items is always a good combat tactic, especially when fighting the tougher monsters like the beast, hunchback, and knight!

Finally, after only 33+ years I have won this more than once. I think it's harder on a modern computer - monsters move about twice as fast sometimes for no apparent reason, while on the < 1 MHz (!) TRS 80, play speed was stuck at something more manageable.

Level 4 is still impossible-ish, but the tactic that helped, then and now, was to keep moving, not too fast, and around corners, because the "AI" can only follow you in a straight line. Then divide and conquer, or hit things once or twice and keep moving.

When sounds are playing, nothing else happens but you can type, so if an enemy is about to enter your space and it or another monster makes a sound, attack several times and move.

I wield the sword in the left hand, because "A space L enter" is easier to type repeatedly and accurately.

I had this original game on the TRS-80 back in the day! And only beat the game once, I thought I beat the game when I defeated the first wizard... and then realized he was only a mirror image and the real wizard was on a deeper level! The magical rings are key to beating the tougher monsters and demons and wizard!

Dropping equipment is key to slowing down monsters... and getting in extra hits! Using the abbreviations A L and A R are key to fast hits!

I would like to see this game updated to a new engine with modern graphics! Something I might look into as a total conversion...

I can't believe that this game is still in existence. The last time I played this was literally 30 years ago. Amazing that the torch is still burning ; ). I just downloaded it on my PC and for some reason I cannot play using the color mode. It won't even highlight the selection for it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks again.
