Deathtrap Dungeon is an interactive video realisation of Ian Livingstone's multi-million selling classic gamebook starring Eddie Marsan (Fast & Furious presents Hobbes & Shaw, Deadpool 2, Atomic Blonde) as narrator.
Presented in a similar way to the BBC's Jackanory/Bedtime Stories, or Jim Henson's Storyteller series, the game features nearly 5 hours of video and takes the player through the devious labyrinth of Baron Sukumvit, full of tricks, traps and loathsome monsters on a quest to escape the dungeon.
Ratings and Reviews
Great narrative rpg
If you are a fan of D&D or just great story telling ( albeit linear in some aspects) this is a fantastic adaventure where your decisions will determine your fate within the narrative. You start with a few choices of your character like strength, stamina, and luck all of which determine how well your situations will turnout. After you generate your character and a few settings the story begins as you make your way into the dungeon. The game puts you into many situations where you decide whether to engage in or not, and every outcome from each will either reward you with treasure and skill points or they will harm, hinder , or result in you untimely demise. Every outcome is determined by a virtual roll of dice so no two play thoughs will be exactly the same. The game itself does have multiple paths to get to the end of the adventure so replaying will be worth your while.
5-star app with unfortunate flaws
This game deserves 5 stars without question, but unfortunately it seems to have some operating issues that hinder the experience. On more than one occasion, the game will utterly freeze, and continue freezing after the current scene has played out, completely halting progress. It’s rather unfortunate having to replay combat, often times to less fortunate result than before, due to the game freezing after defeating your enemy. It’s a deep fracture in what would otherwise be an almost perfect work of art, as the representation of the virtual Deathtrap Dungeon experience is already well done, yet the almost perfect performance of the Dungeon Master, Eddie Marsan (of Johnathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, and The World’s End fame [and so many other fantastic performances]) makes this an absolutely incredible experience.
The wait is finally over!!!
I’ve been eagerly waiting since the announcement of this game’s mobile release! Thank you devs, thanks for recruiting a great actor to be part of this amazing game! And of course, thank you so much Eddie Marsan for taking the job. Eddie is perfect for the role!!
