Cramped Room of Death

Nicalis, Inc. has officially announced that Cramped Room of Death is now available for digital download on Nintendo Switch, Steam, GOG.com, and the Epic Games Store. Created by Hafiz Mohd Rozlan with Nicalis, Cramped Room of Death may look like a 16-bit dungeon crawler, but it is a highly challenging puzzle game that requires careful thinking and planning. In the game, players assume the role of a courageous hero named Lance, who ventures into the narrow passageways of an underground maze armed only with a giant spear. However, the spear proves more of a hindrance than a help, often preventing players from turning to face their enemies. Players must navigate the maze creatively and strategically, one step at a time, to defeat all the enemies in each room and unlock the door to the next area.

Developed by Hafiz Mohd Rozlan with Nicalis, Cramped Room of Death looks like a 16-bit dungeon crawler. Still, it’s a challenging puzzle game that forces you to think carefully about nearly every step.

You play as a brave hero named Lance, who enters the narrow hallways of an underground maze armed with only a giant spear. But your weapon is more hindrance than help: Often, you can’t even turn to face an enemy because the pike is too big! You’ll have to manoeuvre in creative ways, one step at a time, to jab all the enemies in each room and unlock the door to the next area.

Cramped Room of Death has over 170 unique room layouts across five different areas, each with varying types of progressively trickier traps. In the Mine, the rooms are rife with pitfalls and heavy stone blocks that drop from the ceiling; in the Sewer, the slippery floors cause you to slide helplessly until you hit an obstacle. Each of the five areas also has branching paths and secret rooms to discover.

If you get stuck or killed, you can try again as often as you like. You can also collect coins and purchase special keys that might let you escape from a room without killing all the enemies… if you can find a way to sneak past them.

Cramped Room of Death is available now as a digital download on Nintendo Switch, Steam, GOG.com and the Epic Games Store.
