Dungeon of Slyn

I found this game by pure luck. At first, it looked weird. Like... There were like... Squares and you walked on them and it seemed boring. Only... I downloaded it from the windows 8 store and tryed it. And... I fell in love with it. Yes, it's a very simple game, but all the best are. Well. Maybe not all of the best, but a lot of the best games are quite simple. At least in my book.
So, this game. Basically, the goal is to get to the last floor of a dungeon complex and defeat someone or something called Lord Slyn. No Idea what that is. Didn't get there yet. My best is level 16 of the complex.
Okay. Moving on. On your way there you will encounter many many monsters and beasts. My recommendation is to get a unicorn horn as soon as possible. It can cure food poisoning. Don't know if there is anything else that can, but unicorn horn is a sure thing. Then, there are several unique weapons. I think there is always only one, but I may be mistaken. One is Excalibur. I would recommend it if you play as a mage or paladin. Then there is the cleaver. Good for the warrior. And one more which name I don't remember.
Okay. There are also items that are potions, armor and weapons, food, spellbooks, wands and most impornantly – scrolls. Those you just have to collect. I mean, yea, there is the amnesia scroll that is totally useless, but then there are teleportation scrolls, they can get you out of a nasty battle. Then, enchanting scrolls, good for enhancing your weapon and armor. And other scrolls are there too. Like... Remove curse one.
But enough of that.
There is also a shopkeeper. Not on all of the floors, but on some of them you can find her. She sells various items. I would recommend to buy food from her, because, in the later levels, you will probably run out of it. I did and then I got the food poisoning, only, I was saved by the unicorn horn. That's why I'm saying you need to get it as soon as possible. I understand that noone wants to kill a unicorn, but the horn is important. And if you have two, even better. You can keep one for healing and the other one as a weapon. It's quite strong. Though... If you are a warr and you have that cleaver, I don't know if I would switch...
So, what do you think? Interested in it? Would you try it?
The only thing I doN't like about it is that you need to combine both hands on keyboard and mouse. And it just doesn't work when you keep both your hands on the keyboard and then you need the mouse... I mean, it can be played only on the keyboard, but with the mouse added, it's faster. Anyway... I think they should add option that would allow players to pick their own keys for controling. Because then I would be able to set it all for left hand and have the right one free to control the mouse!

See ya.


  1. Thanks for the hint with the unicorn horn. I have this Game for more than a year (i think) on my Windows phone, but most the time, the Food poisoning killed me at the end.

    1. You're welcome. :) I discovered this ability by a fluke. :) But it saved me a lot of times. :) I'm glad I was of help.

  2. I've never run into a unicorn or gotten its horn but I have had a few potions that cure food poisoning. Try mixing potions using the "dip" command.. Dipping one potion into another...

  3. Oh... AND there's a Cure Sickness spell that I've learned as a mage that cures food poisoning. It costs 15 MP but its technically an endless supply of cures for food poisoning.

  4. Disregard my previous posts.. Not only are your posts much older, but the screenshots look different from my game. I'm playing on a windows phone... You must be on a PC or something.

  5. I don't know if anyone has looked at this board in a while but I'll add a hint for those who stumble across it.

    There are many potions and some of them are totally useless. But sometimes you get one of these useless potions and find that it is blessed. Keep that potion! There are wells throughout the game. When you find one, drop a blessed potion over the well, then pick it up again. It is no longer whatever worthless potion it began as. It is now a bottle of holy water and you can bless a weapon, a piece of armor, whatever, by choosing the water and selecting the dip function.

    Also, if you are lucky enough to have several worthwhile scrolls, you can dip them all at once with a single holy water. Imagine, you've collected four Enchant Weapon scrolls. You dip them all in holy water and suddenly you can add a +8 to your favorite weapon!
