What's the point of the game?, AKA, what am I trying to achieve by playing?
Dungeon is a world of puzzles. You solve them to collect points. 585 points: you win!
To do this you'll need to explore the World; try many crazy experiments; die many times; Save and Restore. You can Ask for suggestions from other players, including players currently inside the TriadCity and Midgaard Worlds. You can Google the many Dungeon and Zork wikis and walk-throughs. Or you can leave it entirely to your own wit and ingenuity.
Generations of players have found this World hilarious, absorbing, and slightly nuts. We hope you will too!
