Fatal Labyrinth

Dragonia, the castle of doom, has come upon the world and its minions have stolen the Holy Goblet. Without it, the world will be in darkness forever. You play as Trykaar, who must enter the castle and traverse its thirty levels to retrieve the Holy Goblet. There is no other storyline; its dungeons are generated randomly each time you play, like in Rogue-type games. Much like Nethack or other Rogue games, the game is turn-based.

Fatal Labyrinth kicked my @$$ as a ten year old. Seventeen years later I kicked back. Genesis Kyle Levesque (621)

Dragon Crystal

Fatal Labyrinth is the successor and a technical improvement of Dragon Crystal (1990, Sega Master System), which is evident when looking at the similar inventory screen and several sprites they have in common (for example the scroll item).
