Berdolock`s Dungeon - An Ascdungeon initiave

Hello fellow player!

Thanks for play Berdolock's Dungeon. It's good to see people playing retrogames, and have fun. But the adventure not end in this time. The main goal is:build two or more levels for week and put in the air (for a long time...). But the main idea is : put the guys to design new levels for the adventure. If you like to help send your idea and I'll analyze and if the main idea is cool, I'll implement it.

I'm working in a complete guide for future submissions. It's a small book with templates, softwares (all open source), clarifications, etc to help to design new levels for this adventure. It's a cooperative game! Please, if you like to help, drop a message to

I based my idea in art collectives like Blocktronics, and I´d really like to construct and develop a textmode adventure game. It´s only the beggining...

And if you like to submmit any ANSI art to game, please feel free to talk an send some ideas.

Thanks to Mr Big T Anderson!

Hey, I liked this game! And the ASCII art is a plus~

Just too bad I can't get past level 3. :P

Some guys advanced to 4... Press "G" in chapters screen and have fun!


Thanks, thanks, thanks! Let´s go to explore the underworld!!!!

Hey Antonio, downloading gives you a gamelegend.png file. Is it right?

I could play it right from the site. The sounds and graphics are nostalgic, I can relate to the old days playing Dangerous Dave and other DOS games.

Nice to see that Berdolock still has his dungeon and adventurers are still trying to get through.

(Wouldn't it be nice to see Berdolock's Dungeon as an Old Dragon adventure?)

Hi Bruno,

I´ll write in English because it´s the oficial language here. The legend key file is the first (I´m design manual, lore manal and a lot of things...) and when I reach 10 level,s I´ll release PC and MAC version of the game (HTML5 still on the air for browsers). Next weekend more news are on the way, and that´s it :) !

About Berdolock in Old Dragon, I need to think, but sounds good...

My best regards,

One of the fastest and easiest ways to make money selling t-shirts and custom merchandise online is through Teecity! Last year I ran over ten thousand per day selling ugly christmas sweaters and literally changed my life over night. If anyone is looking to make money online I highly encourage you to start looking into Teecity and the online t-shirt selling internet world. I hope you like my teecity reviews, and I encourage you to give them a try, its completely free! You can also follow their social media, for tweets from the company go here teecity, for their official facebook page go here teecity, and if you are still on the fence watch their youtube video here teecity. Here is their instagram as well to watch their posts teecity. Good luck and have fun!

Thanks for your ideas and tips!
