Posted by Dave Seaman on Friday, 1 February 2013

Warsaw, Poland -- February 01, 2013 -- Crunching Koalas would like to invite everyone to download and playtest their second game- WordTrap Dungeon. It is a word spelling game mixed with classic dungeon RPG mechanics. It is available for free, in a pre-alpha version, through Crunching Koalas crowdsourcing initiative- the Beta Program - 



It is a crossover, word spelling game, mixed with classic dungeon RPG mechanics. 

The rules of the game are simple: 

- form words from available letters 
- attack monsters with a magic spell formed by the letters 
- be quick, as the monsters are anything but friendly 
- defeat the enemies and collect the bonus letters 
- advance through the dungeons 

The final version of the game will include : 

- 2 game modes: Story (which will tell us the tale of a young wizard, trapped in a magic tower) and Arena (where players will try to defeat as many monsters as they can before keeling over) 
- a simplified RPG system including statistics, levels of experience, items and lot's of loot 
- varied types of dungeons, swarmed with different kinds of enemies, including every-day dungeon fellas (rats, bats and beholders) and bosses, unique for every type of dungeon. 

These features will be added gradually to WordTrap Dungeon test versions, which are available for free, for the members of Crunching Koalas Beta Program.
