Describing Deadly Rooms of Death: Journey to Rooted Hold (let's
just call it DROD:JtRH for now, 'k?) is a challenge. It's like a
turn-based action RPG. Kinda. One thing that fans have stated
repeatedly, though, is that DROD:JtRH is FUN.
As an attractiveness-challenged warrior named
Beethro, you will fight and dodge your way through a dungeon filled
with traps, monsters, trigger-plates, and various other puzzling
artifices in a "thinking man's dungeon."
Join the attractiveness-challenged Beethro,
champion member of the Smitemaster's Guild, as he journeys from room
to room in a deadly, trap-laden, monster-filled dungeon. Well-done,
humorous voice-overs help lay out the story as Beethro smites giant
roaches, serpents, goblins, rock golems, evil eyes, and other
monsters; activates doors, zaps through teleporters, and orders
other characters around to assist in his quest. This game is full of
tongue-in-cheek voice-over dialog and tricky encounters and puzzles.
Even better - the game includes a powerful
level-editor so you can create your own Deadly Rooms of Death! Don't
feel up to the task of building your own brain-fryingly challenging
puzzles? That's fine - there's a HUGE supply of community-built free
dungeons for you to enjoy.

"Deadly Rooms of Death Ė
Journey to Rooted Hold is one of the most curious games that Iíve
played to this day. At first glance, it appears to be some kind of
dungeon crawl RPG akin to Nethack, but soon after you start playing,
youíll discover that DROD Ė Journey to Rooted Hold is a very complex
and challenging puzzle game. In other words, itís a Rolepuzzling
Hack & Slash." -
"With a maddeningly addictive gameplay, over 350
rooms spanning 25 levels, a cool storyline, a level editor to make
your own levels, and lots of secret rooms to discover, JtRH
is a great puzzler that will keep you hooked for months on end." -
