Palace of Knossos

The tyrannical King Minos of Crete has thrown you into his labyrinth beneath Knossos. Each year, he selects sacrificial victims to be devoured by the minotaur lurking in the depths below.

The minotaur roams the dark halls of the labyrinth and only he knows the secrets of its unforgiving corridors.

Will you be just another feast? No one has escaped yet...


Latest Update: Floor 5 is 1/4 of the way finished.

There are so far six epic items left by the gods with custom properites to help the adventurer along.

Labyrinth Features:

- Challenging, but very rewarding
- 4 complete levels (Fifth in progress)
- custom music
- custom lighting
- original scripted puzzles
- several custom epic items (more to come in later levels)
- A minotaur boss who you will encounter throughout the labyrinth
- Puzzles which need to be solved by figuring out riddles

The labyrinth was built so that an advanced player can start a balanced level 1 party on normal. It's been play tested many times from start to finish and refined in the process. Hope you enjoy, if so, please rate it.

I just realized that the last update on this dungeon was back in 2013. I just spent like ten minutes complaining in the comment section of dungeon that nobody's cared about for over a year...

...what am i doing with my life?

What i'm trying to say here is that the dungeon has pretty poor indication in it's puzzles. I'm fine with puzzles being vague and difficult to figure out, but when you get to that point where you think you did everything right, and all of the hints are in place, but nothing seems to happen and you look around and nothing's changed... I dunno, maybe i'm just a nitwit and i was doing the completely wrong thing. But after the previous puzzle and the fact that in it you could try to do the thing before moving the thing, and there's no real indication that you have to move the thing, and the way to move the thing is so hard to spot (I apologize for my spoiler-avoidand overuse of the word "Thing")...

I'm sure you're just some dungeon building genius and i just don't get you. But i find your puzzles... awkward. Not too difficult, just... awkward.

Wow, did i really write all that? I have GOT to find more important things to complain about.

I got sick of this map and bailed halfway through. It's not that a puzzle stumped me, not really. I was the first puzzle on floor three. The one with the goromorg statue and the elemental bombs. I spent a good long while studying the pattern of that one, mastering the timing of the different doors and whatnot... and i put everything in place and opened the things and let the thing happen (Being intentionally vague here, spoilers and whatnot)... and then nothing seemed to happen. also, by this point, i'd spent so long on the puzzle that my entire party was starving and half-dead from all the fighting they'd been doing, and i really wasn't keen on fighting another big monster just to try one more time in case something had gone wrong...

@flv Look for two light switches in that room. Once turned on, shadows cast by the pillars will form an X on the ground. Stand at that spot for about 10 seconds and get ready for a fight. Thanks for playing my dungeon...the best is yet to come.

Ah, I thought I did it right. Thanks!

@Squigly You'll want to step on the pressure plates in the same sequence that the torches light up. After repeating the sequence, there is a lever at the far end which will then open the door. If you mess up, the lever will trigger a fireball blast instead. Good Luck and thanks for playing my dungeon.

Hi, this pretty embarrasing, but I'm stuck on the first level. I'm in the long room with 5 unlit torches on each side, and a pressure plate at the beginning shows a combination of ways to light the torches. I've tried doing it in that order, and I've tried lighting them all at the same time and lighting them one at a time, but nothing I do works. Can anyone tell me how to do it, or a hint?

@torbekenhai The explosive corners are actually healing him. Hinted at occasionally if you read his text at the bottom. He must be beaten without allowing him to re-charge his health at the edges. Good luck! You're nearly at the end.

So, I haven't played this dungeon in a while and just remembered why, stuck on the fire boss after following minotaur around the pitfall area with invisibility. Done a ton of damage and pretty sure that's not the way. Can't seem to lure into the explosive corners either. What am I missing?
