Yeah, this one got me stuck for a little while. There's a room on level 2 with an alcove instead of a statue. Take a look to see which statue is missing, and that gives you the clue to what you need to place in the alcove.

I remember this one! I played it when it was first released. I liked exploring all of the cells =D

Stronghold of Ironstone review

Postby thomson » Wed Nov 28, 2012 2:11 am

Stronghold of Ironstone review, version 1.03 from Steam (as of 2012-11-28)

This dungeon seems to be around for quite a while. I think it was released shortly after dungeon editor became available. Keep in mind that this is one of the first dungeons released. I'll try to be as spoiler free as possible, but put the whole review under spoiler tags to be on the safe side.

Spoiler: show
It is puzzle focused with combat being scarce and not that important. I was able to finish it in little over 90 minutes, but I was rushing it a bit. I found slightly more than a half of the secrets, so it was not a total speed run. As advertised, there are 4 levels. Number of pits you can fall into is extremely small (possibly two, but I was not able to open that trapdoor).

One interesting thing is a mix of different wallsets on the same level. Certain items have no apparent purpose (at least I haven't found any use for them and I have finished this dungeon).

In several spots the auto-map seems invalid - it shows that there are passages where there is actually a solid wall. These are probably secrets that I haven't managed to found. Or they could be just bugs. One way or the other, it shouldn't be revealed on the auto-map.

I think I read somewhere that a new party is recommended. I have played with kick-ass level 13 party. Nevertheless some of the enemies were semi-challenging.

There is no intro. There's no final sequence, either. That is quite surprising/disappointing. You just walk through a corridor and suddenly credits start to roll out.

In my opinion, this is a simple and moderately fun dungeon. Taking into consideration that is was released shortly after editor became available and not many tricks were known be modding community, it is okay.


Thanks for creating and publishing this mod.
