Gameplay comments: 

Despite being small, good puzzles, linear progression, though monster flood troubles meant I don't think I could finish it!

Originality comments: 

I think it has a feel all of its own.

Difficulty:

Difficulty comments: 

In a bad way, because I couldn't finish it (characters starved to hip deep in clubs and armour!) - before that, 7 - good progression of difficulty.

Puzzles: 
6
Puzzles comments: 

Good puzzles, good progression, but nothing you will scratch your head over for too long.

Size:

Size comments: 

Uses the levels well, but there isn't that many!

Replayability:

Replayability comments: 

It's linear, so I think once you solve it you've solved it - the fact that there are lots of new characters with new stats could keep you coming back through.

Craft comments: 

There are a number of nice set pieces like the knight room, flame room and the building up of the original room as you progress.

Game Ending comments: 

I don't know how close I was to the finish... The fact I died still fighting was frustrating though... But I did keep fighting til the end!

Atmosphere:

Atmosphere comments: 

Definite feel to the game, the construction as you walk the various paths feel is... tight? Hard to describe.

Overall: 
7
Overall comments: 

Very playable, good even though small - if only Sphenx wasn't busy with editors that were cool I'd be wishing he'd build a full dungeon!

Best part: 

The knight room.

Worst part: 

Not managing to finish because of death by monster flood.
