The story

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).

Controls

In game, 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 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.

Game menu

If you press the fire button shortly (LEDmePlay) or if you press fire button 2 (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.

Hints

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!
