In The Games Corner… Deathtrap Dungeon, Playstation 1

Today we look at a game that was on the Playstation 1 that got mixed reviews. Deathtrap Dungeon was released the 30th March 1998, it was developed by Asylum Studios and published by Eidos Interactive. The game was based on an adventure game book of the same name and it was also sixth in the Fighting Fantasy Series (These books were sort of like a Choose Your Own Adventure style.)

In the game you play as either Amazon ‘Red Lotus’ or the Barbarian ‘Chaindog’. The aim of the game is to explore a number of dungeons and beat many traps and monsters to find the treasure.

The game got mixed reviews upon release with critics finding many flaws in the game – there is no clear definition online as to whether this was due to bug errors or not.
