Crazy brutal. That is what I have to say about Deep Dungeons of Doom by Bossa Studios. DDD is unlike any RPG I have played before. In a good way. It has a real simple concept of play that is easy to jump into and brutal to master. That is something that is often the goal of game designers and Bossa does pretty well at it.
DDD puts you in the armored shoes of a Crusader as he frees dungeons across the kingdom from evil monsters. The game opens up with you crawling through a castle sewer to rid it of a monster that has eaten too many of the king’s people. The game then plays in a variety of other locales such as an abbey.
