WIZZARD`s Power Words to DUNGEON KEEPER v1.1

Here are my Power Words for the long-awaited game }} DUNGEON KEEPER {{. 
Well, this game has nearly nothing to do with a classical
roleplayer-game like Dungeon Master or Ultima Underworld (my sisters &
me had a nice time in those dungeons ;-) exept the story. It is more a
realtime-strategy-game with some real new & interesting ideas. And
realtime is the right word. You have to be fast & you've got to know
what and where everything happens. In many cases you can`t direct your
monsters like in Warcraft II ("attack this" or "stand there"), but you
can direct them though your planning.

- Money: don`t underestimate the importance of getting enough gold or
better: jewels (infinite supply of money). When you find some rocks with
jewels, dig them free form all sides, click them all & put many imps
next to them. Up to three imps can work at the same time on one side of
a rock. Money problems solved - better than any credit card ;-)

- You can control your imps by exactly placing on certain places. For
example if you want an imp to mark your dungeon at a special place, put
him at the last marked point. Or put him directly next to a place where
you want him to dig. So you can choose what to be done first - time is
important in this game.

- You like to have many Wizards for fights & for fast research. So build
a BIG library at the beginning.  Happy FUL IR!

- Put the demon lizard in the library - it can do research, too.

- After the first levels it is more difficult to find gold near your
main complex. Your imps have to walk long way to bring it to your
treasure chambers. So build some treasure chambers next to the
far-away-gold rocks. In solo-player a good option, but in multi-player
you have to look that no player steals your gold. And to prevent all
your monsters running through the whole dungeon at the payday you should
from time to time take some money to your treasure chamber next to your
fitness center.

- While you continue training your creatures they get more & more "Hit
Points" and sometimes after gaining some levels they can transform to a
higher life form. The demon spawn gets after the 10. level a dragon.

- Using spells in battle is interesting when you've enough money. To use
them more exacly and faster open the battle window (the sword of the
info-icons). When you hold down the left mouse button during a spell, it
gets more powerful & more expensive as well. 

- If you've got a Pentium 133 or better, you should try the SVGA Modus
(activate with ALT-R): 32 Meg`s or more bring fast & good gfx.

- From time to time some of your monsters like to walk around and attack
the enemy on their own (for example the flies who are good explorers of
new territory). If you get this there-is-a-fight-message (you don`t
want) you can just take them fast to another location with the monster
menu. This works good to save imps which are working near enemy
territory and get attacked. 

- Traps: nice to have them - bad to run into them. The best way to get
rid of enemy traps is to send some imps into them (one after another:
buy new imps AFTER the trap is destroyed). The trap looses finally it`s

- Traps II: You want to enter a room with enemies. Open the door first,
remove the attacker. If possible you should put some traps on the way
leading out of the enemies room. Then take a wizard, put him before the
room. Uuuuiii, the alarm goes. Let them fight a bit, then take him & put
him more into the direction of the traps. The enemies will follow and
run into the traps.

- To find all your monsters: right-click them several times in the
monster menu. The computer switches from monster to monster and shows
its location to you.

- Heal your most important monsters after a fight with a spell or
better: give them chicken.

- To use the training or research more effectively you should build at
least some ChickenMcnuggets and treasure cambers next to the training
room or the library. Then your monsters don't have to walk long
distances when they get hungry.

- Specials: you don`t have to use them at the time you find them. Your
imps will carry them to your library, many times it is better to use
them later.

- The temple: they're good at rising the morale (angry creatures calm
down, meditate ;-)  If you`ve at least nine squares of temple and build
it near water, a tentacle might join your party.

- The temple II: when sacrificing several imps, they get much cheaper to
buy! Do that, it`s a power trick!

- Talking about sacrifice: a fly & spider: you get a worlock, beetle &
spider: a dark mistress for free, beetle & bettle: manufacturing
completed, fly & fly: research completed (use it later in the longer
research topics). Don't sacrifice undead creatures or even chicken.

- Even dead creatures can serve your plans, put imps nearby after the
fight, then bring them to the graveyrad. And after some time, you`ll get
a vampire, one of the strongest fighters, treat him with respect (don`t
slap him). To get more of them you can get a prisoner, put him into a
small empty room, lock with a strong door and add some imps. They'll be
killed soon, remove the hero to the prison and let your imps bring away
the dead imps to the graveyard (better build it nearby). Soon you'll
have a nice legion of vampires. They should get their own training
ground, because they like to fight the worlocks/magicians. You can place
a hellhound on a graveyard to get vampires faster.

- If your monsters are training (& using money when you don't have
enough) just isolate the fitness center with a locked door. But when
your creature get bored, they might fight each other.

- With the combination of prison and torture chamber you can get new
fighters on your side. When your creatures don't kill the enemies (swich
on the prison-symbol in the Info-menu), the imps will bring them to your
prison (place them nearby after fight). Heal or feed the prisoners (or
they will die and become a skeleton for your army: not the best
fighter). When in good condition you can bring the prisoners to the
torture chamber. Sometimes they`ll tell you some secrets...  You can
heal them during this procedure & shure after some time they`ll join
you. This is escpecially interesting when you have inprisoned a strong

- Warping into creatures: a nice thing - not only because of the feeling
walking through your own dungeon. When you control a creature, it`s more
effective in a fight. If you have the time to do it. If you like to walk
through your dungeon without the control menu hit the TAB-Key.

- Barracks: (wrong translation in the German version: it means "Kaserne"
not "Braracken", hehe) Here you can form a troop out of a group of
monsters. Let some monsters walk in it (two swords appear over their
heads), one will become the leader with the crown, the monsters will
follow him wherever he goes.

- Mistress - they like to be beaten, really. To attract some of them,
you need a big torture chamber. SM in virtual reality ...

- If you need many creatures at a special place, put there a "call to
arms"-spell. To cancel that spell click it three times with the left

- The Horned Reaper is one of the best fighters in this game - and of
course hard to get. You can try to sacrifice a dark mistress, a bile
demon and a troll to get him. But it is difficult to control. If it gets
angry, just gove him some money (drop over it), and he`ll be in good
mood again.

And now, enter your Dungeon, Keeper - with new knowledge you can win!
