Deathtrap Dungeon Trilogy Critic Reviews

Translating a set of revered gamebooks from the '80s into video game form was always going to be something of a challenge, and while the version that's made the jump to Nintendo Switch under a new name doesn't bring anything particularly different to the tabletop party, developer Asmodee has retained the evocative world-building of Ian Livingstone's books while adding in some helpful features. It's a little lacking in the looks department, but if you fancy taking a trip back in time to RPG questing of old, Deathtrap Dungeon Trilogy certainly offers plenty of retro adventures of its own.

The presentation is pedestrian, and the gameplay basic. It's genuinely difficult to imagine who would get much value out of this package.
