This game revolves around Deimos, foremost of all Dungeon Lords. Having fallen victim to a devious plot hatched by his vile, nasty, thoroughly vicious ex-girlfriend Calypso, Deimos found himself relegated to the bottom of the ladder in the Dungeon and that's pretty low when you think about it!
Deimos has to try to regain his old place and have his well-deserved revenge on Calypso. First, however, is dealing with his new bosses of the Dungeon. On the one hand , there's the Zombie King, who is about as intelligent as an average zombie is likely to be, and on the other there's hot-blooded Minos, who likes to solve problems using violence or, alternatively, more violence.
As Deimos, your route back to ruling the roost, er Dungeon, is in taking each boss out and progressing back up the slippery ladder to ultimate power. Added to that there are also the pesky humans (Ten Hero Classes) who think your Dungeon is just littered with treasure / booty and fame, who need to be disposed of.
And as with all self respecting Dungeons, there are plenty of monsters lurking about the place that need to be dispatched as you journey back to your rightful position.
There are 20 campaign missions as well as custom games to tuck into. The Dungeon is layered into three levels (going downwards) and you have the opportunity to dispatch foes to torture chambers, or if you are feeling benign, Prison.
There is also a Dungeon workforce you can boss around to create the Dungeon of your dreams, or should that be nightmares?
