The objective is to survive through 16 dungeon levels, killing a certain number of boss monsters on each one. Several less significant monsters will do their best to hinder and kill the player along the way. As the player goes deeper into the dungeon, enemies will get tougher and deadlier, but the choice of weapons on the floor will allow the player to fight through them better.
The game is more challenging than other ones but not really easy to play.
I had to use a 80×30 console size in order to play the game (I could set it with the help of the fbset command).
