DUNGEON! is a retro-styled video game where a different course of levels is randomly generated with every new attempt. See how far you can get by platforming and defeating monsters!

You play as the knight Sir Charles, as he navigates through a treacherous dungeon in order to save a princess!

-A variety of enemies that get harder as the game progresses
-Powerups you can buy from a gift shop with coins you collect
-Different zones that change the appearance and music of levels
-A large pit with like 12 slimes in it
-Wall jumping (people seem to enjoy this mechanic)

And more!

DUNGEON! Was made with Pico-8, more information about it can be found here.

For anyone who cares about the soundtrack, I made a Bandcamp page for it here.

Right so I am rewriting this because I think I finally understand this game. 

That yes it's a hard game and I wish I had something like a double jump or a sword. But that's the point, it's meant to be that hard, cause it's actually pretty small. 

Also I do love the mechanic of having your armor and cape actually give you your abilities. I also found out there is a sword in game. 

This was an enjoyable game, and that ending...priceless. I relate to that knight so much....having to go through hell, only to find that the real thing you love is in another castle. 

All in all, an enjoyable game. 

Thanks! Lol I was gonna write a response to your comment saying that there is a sword but you gotta buy it in the shop. I don't know if you found the double jump cape but it's also a powerup too.

As for the wall jumping, I hope everyone realizes I'm very unhappy with it too. Personally, I have no problem with it, but almost everyone I show it to says its clunky or awkward. I once tried taking in player feedback and making it better but then people disliked it even more, so I reverted back to the version it is now. But anyway, I'm glad you liked it!


What an enjoyable game! Special thanks for the lightweight tutorial that explains everything and doesn't overstay it's welcome, plus the well timed speech bubbles!


Fantastic game! May I ask for permission to do a gameplay on a music video? :)

sure thing! just put a link in the description or something i guess.

I will! Thanks 😊 


very goood!!!!


nice game, good level-map. the pico-games are sometimes very great.....good work!!!


This game is awesome!


Just managed to finish it. Loved it!


This is excellent!  8-bit feel and better than what was on store shelves in the 8-bit era.

Thanks man! I'm glad you liked it
