There it sits in a dark corner under a lone blinking light, the last long forgotten, once loved and now neglected arcade game of your childhood, Dungeon Of Doom. The game we all spent countless hours and quarters trying to defeat but unsuccessfully complete. No one can explain why such an iconic game fell to the way side, but every so often new players seem to discover the greatness that once was.

 

It’s 1987, Elliot Wynn, a frequent gamer to 1-Up Arcade, has spent more time here than in school. Your typical teenage gaming nerd high on soda, nachos and pop rocks. He scans the arcade for any new games that might have been brought in and notices a game in the back corner that he’s never seen before. It’s all by itself, doesn’t appear to have been played in a long while. He approaches it, wipes the dust to reveal the name, Dungeon Of Doom. He pulls out a bag of quarters, drops a quarter into the machine and the nostalgic sounds of Retrovision Games blares through the speakers, he presses start to begin what will be the most epic game he’s ever played.

 

A game filled with fantasy, nightmarish ghouls, vivid imagery and heart pumping sound. Elliot plays for several hours and upon the 13th hour finally defeats the game. Fanfare rings and celebration is rampant with excitement until suddenly, a crack of sound explodes from the machine dragging Elliot through a vortex directly into the game. Now trapped and transformed into a terrifying new character, he awaits the arrival of a new player to defeat.

 

Over the years Dungeon Of Doom has been moved from arcade to arcade consuming the lives of new players to expand its ever growing horrific universe. Immerse yourself in the New Dungeon Of Doom experience now presented in vibrant Retrovision 3D. Can you beat the High Score?
