Two programs on one cassette. The Dungeon Creator allows you, within defined limits, to set the scenario for your own Dungeons and Dragons style game.

Up to 255 rooms, or locations, are allowed, and a variety of exists, in any direction, can be defined.

The task is to collect rings, and you can set up to a total of 20 rings in different locations.

Various other things, such as weapons, potions, armour, etc, can also be allocated to locations, as can the number and variety of nasties.

Ample opportunity is given to alter things before you commit your creation to tape.

In order to play your game, you must first load in the Dungeon Master, and then your SAVEd game.

If you wish, you may play the game already on the tape, which I did. I like D&D-type games, but this one didn't appeal to me.

The action was slow, and I had to keep pressing "any key to continue", which is not good programming practice.
