"Deadly Rooms of Death" (DROD) is a turn-based puzzle dungeon crawl.

It is a 2D top-down puzzle adventure that focuses on hardcore gameplay mechanics, best described succinctly as "Zelda chess."

This game is not about the graphics. It's about clever puzzle design and unique play mechanics. Each room is a unique, hand-crafted puzzle that you solve by clearing out all the monsters. Gameplay is 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 features a completely unique puzzle-adventure play style.

This game is the latest title in the ongoing DROD franchise. "Gunthro" is designed as an entry-level offering to the DROD world, with both new players and veterans in mind. The level layout is has multiple hub areas to explore. The game starts easy, has a smooth learning curve and an integrated online hints system. You should be pleased by the puzzle designs that went into this game, making for a delightful blend of fun and challenge.

The story:

In this game, Beethro Budkin recounts an epic tale of adventure to his nephews about his grandfather, Gunthro Budkin, and his exploits in the dangerous nation of Rasarus. Gunthro is a third-generation smitemaster, and a rather ugly man. Smitemasters are hard-bitten, muscled veteran dungeon exterminators that slay hideous beasties in dark places for a living. You know Gunthro will get the job done, and you'll happily pay him to clear your basement of giant man-eating dungeon roaches.

When the Rasarun king is slain by an officer of Tueno, Gunthro is recruited by Rasarus to defend his country and reclaim its honor. However, as Gunthro searches deeper, he will find that things are not quite as they seem.

Experience the unique turn-based puzzle dungeon-crawler adventure that is DROD!

I need cloud saves. I've been playing DROD games for years, but I can never finish any of them and it's not because I get stuck ( I do get stuck), it's because I've always eventually got a new computer and DROD is a very long game. If I could keep my saves in the Steam cloud, I might actually be able to complete one of these someday.
