Home of the LEDmePlay. Since 2013.
You have to explore multiple dungeons of a 3D fantasy world. During the quest, you have to hack and slay a lot of monsters which become stronger and stronger as you push forward through the mazes. There are spiders, goblins, and many other strange creatures. Some of them can throw fireballs. Keep track of your health points (represented by the red bar at the bottom) to avoid an early death. No worries, you will find lots of helpful equipment and magic spells which make life easier. Just open the chests you can find everywhere. To use spells you need a differing number of magic points (represented by the green bar at the bottom).
You can use the joystick to go forward (up), backward (down) or turn to the side (left, right). The letter at the top of the screen shows the orientation you are looking to (N = North, E = East, S = South, W = West). Pressing and holding down the fire button (fire button A for LEDmePlay Joypad or LEDmePlayBoy) for a short time (the length depends on the weight of your weapon and armor) allows you to either mount an attack with the current weapon (shown on the left side) by moving the joystick upwards, or you can use the currently selected spell (shown on the right side) by moving the joystick downwards. Chests are opened automatically if you move the joystick upwards in front of them.
If you press the fire button shortly (Classic joystick) or if you press fire button B (LEDmePlay Joypad or LEDmePlayBoy), you enter the game menu. In the menu, you can navigate with the joystick to the different options and select them with the fire button. Switch between the different weapons (W), armors (A), and spells (S) which are in your inventory. Furthermore, you can drink elixirs and magic potions. Numbers show you how many elixirs, magic potions, and keys you are carrying. If you navigate to "Map", you can open the auto-map to obtain orientation to the current maze: You are the blue dot, while walls are shown in green and white dots represent doors.
Keys are required to open doors. Just move the joystick upwards in front of a door.
Gives you 4 hit points back.
Refills all your magic points.
This is the default weapon from the start: Light-weighted but with little power.
A balanced weapon which helps you against various typesof monsters except the big ones.
This heavy sword is powerful even against beholders but it reduces your speed significantly.
Long-range weapon with medium power. You have 6 bolts for it.
Very powerful long-range weapon. You have 6 arrows for it.
This "better than nothing" armor provides a good protection against small monsters.
Heavy protection but with a significant effect on your speed.
This armor is like a magic hood. Protection against monsters is just light but they can only see you if they are directly in front of you.
This armor provides a very good protection against fireballs and it compensates heavy equipment by speeding you up.
Powerful long-range attack (requires 1 magic point).
Heaviest attack in the game which could kill even the biggest monsters with one hit (requires 2 magic points).
Doubles your speed for a short time (requires 2 magic points).
Restores all your hit points (requires 3 magic points).
Become immortal for a short time (requires 3 magic points).
If you die, you can start from the beginning or in the last maze you have reached in the game before with the same equipment you had at that time. Just select "Last" after you left the title screen.
Fighting and hitting the monsters always depends a bit on luck. The stronger the weapons and the armor, the bigger the luck.
Sometimes, fighing is not the best option. Use better tactics by selecting the right armor and using a sufficient spell.
Good luck with your quest!
