The game was coded in BASIC.
Procedurally-generated dungeon games like this one are generally called "rogue-like", but this game was the first of its kind published two years before Rogue. The Apple II claims another credit for genre creation.
Public Domain release
The IBM version of the game was released into the public domain by the author, Don Worth himself.
