Dungeon is an exploring and mission based game for up to 4 players. The game supports five character classes with their own strengths and weaknesses. The game uses an action point mechanism to control how much a player can do on their turn. The players all share the keyboard, each player moves their piece, casts spells, buys supplies and fights monsters and then the play moves onto the next player. After each player has had a turn the computer allows each monster to have a turn. The monsters varied greatly in strength and characteristics.

It was originally created in the 1980’s running on PC’s in DOS, it ran in CGA mode (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_Graphics_Adapter) with four colours displayed.

I’m converting this game to modern devices and shall blog my way through the experience.
