Simplicity, interesting idea, vocabulary practice, the 30 minutes trial is enough to enjoy the full potential of this game
Only fun for a short while, possibly difficult

Dungeon Scroll is a very simplistic game. It is possible that you find it interesting for a few minutes, but the enthusiasm soon fades.

The whole point of the game is to arrange letters to create words. Thats it.

You get a monster attacking you in the upper left corner of your screen. It periodically hits you and reduces your health meter. Once your health drops to zero, you die. You can kill the monster by arranging letters into meaningful words. The longer the word, the more damage you deal.

After every round, you gain a special letter which you can use. Unlike regular letters, these can only be used once and do not disappear after you finished a stage. The trick is to save up these special letters, so you can build more complex words later. They can also have bonuses like +10 damage and what not.

In practice, all you will be probably doing is arranging very short words as soon as possibe, like tea, sea, meat, see...
It is very difficult to come up with a decent word when that little plagued rat is biting you rear end every few seconds.
Not that the short letter matter that much, since most creatures at the beginning can be killed by a 3-letter word.


Dungeon Scroll is a pretty good time-killer when you are bored in the office, waiting for those painful 20 minutes to pass to go home. It is a game which you might want to look at, but throw away after your trial time ends.
