Devious Dungeon by Woblyware and Ravenous Games is an action platformer for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Nintendo Switch. The game was ported by Ratalaika Games and translated into German by myself.
“Under orders by the King, players assume the control of a Knight instructed to head into the catacombs beneath the Kingdom, to slay the fowl beasts and monstrosities that have invaded the murky depths. You must venture deep within the dungeons eliminating the threat! Slay monsters, collect loot, level up and upgrade your gear.”
“Madeleine Valois is a prince’s companion. Her job is to guide and advise him, to make him look good so that he can land a royal bride. It is her responsibility to keep him out of trouble – not to let him walk blindly into a political minefield, not to let him get arrested for a crime he didn’t commit, and definitely not to let him fall in love with her. Unfortunately, events are not going according to plan …“
The game is a mix between action, romance, and intrigue. While the first four chapters are similar for every path, the game divides into four completely different plots in chapter five. Playing as Madeleine, the player can decide which character to pursue. Madeleine’s prince Oscar, the moody prince of Gwellinor Callum, the mysterious Nazagi, and the strange prince Gaston.
But be warned! The game is called The Royal TRAP for a reason. It is full of plot twists and surprising events! The Royal Trap is available at a price of $ 19.95 and can be played with Windows, Mac OS, and Linux. A demo, containing the prologue and the first chapter, can be downloaded for free on the official site.
