The sequel to Dungeon Keeper, from Bullfrog Productions Ltd., has the
player once again building an army of the most vile, nasty, wicked and
loathsome creatures imaginable with the ultimate goal of attacking and
destroying King Reginald’s legions of Harmonia heroes. Indeed, creation of
a dark army of nefarious creatures is the uppermost objective in Dungeon
Keeper 2 as you strive to capture and control the Portal Gems left behind
by Reginald’s mages in an attempt to block movement of your army and keep
it imprisoned underground for eternity.
With help from the Horned Reaper, you’ll need to mine gold to entice the
evil denizens to work for you, provide sleeping arrangements for them and
create a hatchery for breeding and feeding. The entire scope and shape of
your underground realm depends on your abilities to layout a suitable
nesting place for the other-worldly scum you must recruit in order to
overcome good and supplant it with evil.
Shape your dungeons by digging tunnels, chambers, rooms and torture
chambers, build a library to house evil magic spells or create a combat pit
arena where you can jump in the ring and develop fighting skills from a
first-person perspective or simply watch your minions hone devious fighting
techniques. Provide drinking and gambling areas for your army and devise
devilish traps and snares to foil the forces of good as they try to
infiltrate your lair.
Dungeon Keeper 2 features actions such as casting spells, possessing
creatures, sniping, sneaking or creeping around, torture and generally
performing dozens of other abilities worthy of the lowest scum you can
conjure up to help build your dungeons and wreak havoc on the world. The
game features a short tutorial that allows dungeon keepers to learn about
game aspects such as digging, fighting, creature development and room
Other game components include more than a dozen terrain and room types,
ranging from workshops to cemeteries, more than a dozen creatures to
conjure, keeper spells (12), creature spells (25) and a large variety of
traps, tricks and doors. Dungeon Keeper 2 offers several modes of play,
including the unique “”My Pet Dungeon”” mode in which you can build the
dungeon of your dreams without invoking campaign rules and objectives.
Multi-player options complement the campaign and skirmish modes with
Internet and LAN support for up to four players.
