This game is dripping with dungeon crawling fun. It's quite simply one of the most "pure" dungeon crawls on the archive with addictive gameplay, enchanting atmosphere, and inspiring style. Simply a must. As for the length, I think Testa nailed it. You can only play such a game for so long.
You are a young adventurer embarking on a quest to the depths below. Journey through cave after cave of obnoxious badguys, and visit the tourist beauro for information.
I love this game. It's so simple, yet incredibly fun. Sure, it doesn't last as long as other dungeon crawls by Testa, but it is no less fun. Prefab enemies are used tastefully, giving the game the subtle hint of its zzt roots. It doesn't take itself too seriously, either, but has a few jokes thrown in. There is enough seriousness to make you feel like you're not wasting your time, but enough jokes to give you a chuckle here and there. Highly recommended.
(+): Great dungeon-crawling fun, nicely designed levels. (-): Way too short.

So what do we expect from Anthony Testa? Another game to rattle our emotions and stir our senses? Hardly. This game, while made by Testa, falls flat on his ass in the emotion bracket. Dungeon Master's Gallery is more of a simple dungeon crawl genre of game. But its simplicy is its best feature. The dungeon design is great, while posing a challenge yet making it not too difficult. Although I could never kill that stupid Vampire Rat, but I still enjoyed it.
Pros: Poses a challenge Dungeon design is great
Cons: Bosses a little too hard
In short this is definetly an Anthony Testa game to play.
