Dungeon Escape!
Seven years in the making, Dungeon Escape is a flash homage to classic laserdisc games like Dragon's Lair and Space Ace.

It was the project I used to teach myself Flash and Actionscript way back in Flash 5, and I've come back to it from time to time over the years between other projects to slowly add more rooms. This article convinced me that there's money to be made from Flash games, which gave me the impetus to finish it recently, but apparently since that article was written all the sponsors who spend big money licensing flash games have ditched flash and moved on to iPad games. So, no big sponsorship, but at least I've finally finished it, and I've put it back in its quaint little home on my website where its lived for the past seven years.


One brief caveat is that, since the game involves quickly clicking spots on the screen, you're much better off using a mouse than a trackpad.

Man, I suck at this. Full screen would really help, so when I'm throwing the mouse pointer around I can't click outside the game by accident. Great art style, though, and nicely paced.

That is both awful and glorious in equal measures.

Man, you *have* been at this a long time. I remember this from at least four or five years ago. I love it!
