Yeah, you've got several people on here that have played it. I love this game! That part (trying to find the lucky gold) stumped me for a while. There's a clue made up of hidden walls in a room somewhere between floors 21 and 30. No, it's not one word. One of the symbols is a number. Try to figure out what you could use to do what the clue says.

----------------

Congratulations! You've uncovered an inspired ballad, set to a popular tune and sung brilliantly by Tendry, a mighty warrior of the Stalwart Army, a sturdy champion of the muses, with grand creative aspirations, who we also know most certainly saved the entirety of Tueno from an invasion by the underground Empire. ...For he asserts every word of his tale is absolutely and undoubtedly true, and we should esteem it as such.

Lyrics to attached song:

My friend and I made a complete walk through of the game. It is in .pdf format and I can post it on my web site if anyone wants it.

Ok, fair enough because I want to ask a question about this game since dis topic got me playing it...

Does the Warp Item has any special or secret function? In my first run I didn't have to use it.

Yes, it does. You can conserve keys or life, reching areas before you could have done without it. The highscores, man! Think of the highscores! How much life can you have left at the end? How much defense? How much Attack?

This is the highscores criteria: Red key = 3 points, blue key = 2 points, yellow key = 1 point, 1000 life = 2.5 points, 10 offense = 5 points, 20 defense = 7 points.

Edit: oh, and just move the Tendry thing to a new obscure place. That ought to fix things.

Ah, it's not that big a deal to me, though spoiling a game is, in general, bad form.

What is the best place to acquire this game? One version I downloaded threw constant error messages and installed some adware. And which is more ideal, the 2d or 3d version?

I'd download it from the same URL I've got a link for <defunct>. The 2D version is easier to play, interface-wise. The 3D looks a bit cooler but, as with DROD, vertical geometry only serves to hide information and makes it more difficult to play.

You can't get the sword in Tower 13 yet; it's a teaser. You'll get it much later on in the game.

Hope no-one minds me bumping this topic.... yes, it's shameful, but I'm completely stuck, and I know bradwall posted a complete walkthrough, but that's just what I don't want, as that would spoil the whole fun.

So, where am I meant to go next after beating the gate guardians on the 18th floor? I can't reach the boss on the 20th floor without a red key, but the only red key I can find costs a ridiculous amount of gold which it will be completely impossible to amass even if I generously assumed that 1HP will be enough to take down the boss. I've tried starting over from the beginning but I get the same problem. Any hints?

Hmm...looks like my previous post with my TotS walkthrough with a score of 388 got deleted. Here it is again.
