Description [en]

The Caravel DROD franchise has been in development for over a decade and is beloved by thousands of players across the world. DROD is a thinking man's dungeon crawl. Each room is a unique, hand-crafted puzzle that you solve by clearing out all the monsters. Game mechanics are Turn-Based, and by making moves as fast or as slow as you like, you can experience the action and solve puzzles at your own pace.

This game is designed as an entry-level offering to the DROD world, with both new players and veterans in mind. The level layout is designed to be more forgiving, with multiple hub areas to explore. The game starts easy, has a smooth learning curve and an integrated online hints system. If DROD has seemed too difficult for you to get far into, then you should be pleased by the design that went into this game, making for a delightful blend of fun and challenge. The game features all-new puzzle elements and enhanced level crafting abilities that add more depth to the previous offerings in the franchise.
