Hi...

It's my first post on this forum. I'm a DROD player from way back in the Webfoot days. My son and I played it in 1998 or so... I recently rediscovered it, and bought KDD 2.0 for the Mac. Unfortunately room demos for earlier versions of KDD don't seem to work on 2.0 and although a demo for this room has been uploaded, I can't view it.

If there's no way to get that older demo to work with 2.0 does anyone have a KDD 2.0 demo of Fifth Level: Twice East they'd be willing to upload...?

TIA,

Robert

Hiya,

There might not be demos, but there's a large amount of hints available for that room. If you click on the Get Help for A Room button, and select King Dugan's dungeon, you can select that level, that room and find out all the hints that were posted. Often the threads tend to be filed under KDD rather than KDD 2.0 because the puzzles are pretty much the same.

It seems like robian has checked the other threads, as they noted the lack of a 2.0-friendly demo.

I'd be happy to post a demo, but apparently I played through KDD2.0 on a different computer and I don't have the demo available. Hopefully someone else will.

Hi...

Thanks for the quick response. Almost all of the hints are for a part of the room I've already conquered. :~( This apparently means that I'm fairly sharp about the tricky stuff, but dumb as a stump about the really simple stuff.

I can get through the "arrow box" on the right side of the screen with no problem, and eliminate a bunch of eyes while standing on the force arrows below the box all right, but the sequence of moves beyond that escapes me. Duh...

So... I 'd still sure like to see that demo. ;)

While you're waiting for the demo, maybe this will help.

You've said you can get through the "arrow box".

And when standing on the force arrows at the bottom of the "arrow box,"

Okay, I'm working on the challenges in this hold, and this is the first (I think) room that has me stumped. I can do everything except that first chamber. No matter what I wake up a line of three and they're on top of me before I can do anything. Any help?

They can't get you while you're on the force arrows ;)

They can when I'm going down...and I have to move orthogonally in order to get them off my tail so that I can get to a point to kill.

Let me just be clear, I'm talking about the challenge, don't move orthogonally, not just clearing the room, that is so easy.

Down? Ah... you said the first chamber so I thought you meant the diagonal lines of three on the west of the room.

This challenge is possible either moving on the light or the dark squares. Either way, step on every square above the arrows to wake as many eyes as possible, then step onto the arrows at one end, kill all eyes woken so far, and duck round the wall to reduce the number of eyes coming at you.

I'm having trouble with the challenge and that bottom right room. Specifically, the first half of it. Even more specifically...

That bit's rough because you have eyes coming from both sides -- but there's one spot where you can be safe from the eyes from one side, so you can deal with the groups one at a time.

Thanks! I was able to clear the room + do the challenge.
