Good, dumb fun. The kind of thing you can play repeatedly, but not as the centerpiece to your evening.

A nice and simple dungeon crawl. I obtained this more for the nostalgia factor than for interest in playing.

Simple little game, we created add-ons and more stuff to liven it up. Saw lots of play in its time.

Not much meat here, but kind of fun to play nonetheless. There are worse ways to spend a half hour.

Randomized monster placement means varying difficulty levels for the player; sometimes even the Fighter has a tough time. The Cleric has OK chances, but the Wizard can never win going it alone.
