There are 2 types of people in the world: those who flee... and those who die!

In a fantastic and steampunk world dominated by magic and machines, a powerful mage has captured random adventurers during his travels, and thrown them into his mechanical maze. He is cruel and deceitful, and bored to death. For amusement, he watches his prisoners fight their way through his infernal mechanical maze, the Dungeon Twister.

In Dungeon Twister, the player controls a group of 8 adventurers. But not alone… 2 teams have been enclosed in the sinister dungeon. Only the winning team will be spared. To win, the player must either escape the dungeon or slay his opponents.


The rooms can rotate.
Will you be able to find your way through?


It's not going to be easy. Not only must you face an opponent with the same objectives as you, but you must also make your way through unstable terrain. Each room in the dungeon has a rotation mechanism. When a character takes control of one, he can pivot it, opening up new pathways, and closing others to the opponent... But as your opponent can do the same thing, the road to victory can be transformed into a path bristling with traps!

8 adventurers, special powers, powerful magic objects… billions of possibilities!

In Dungeon Twister, there is no room for luck. Strategy is everything. You have 8 characters: Troll, Wall-walker, Thief, Warrior, Goblin, Cleric, Wizard, and Mekanork. Each has special powers: the Mekanork can cobble mechanisms together and rotate rooms in any direction; the Wizard casts devastating fireballs; the Wall-walker can move through walls… It's up to you to use their skills and take advantage of the speed potions and other powerful magic objects scattered about the dungeon.

To win, choose your weapons: speed, dodging, cunning, or strength. And above all, make good use of all of your Machiavellian resources! The only way to win is by developing and honing your strategy.


The community awaits... Will you be up to the task that lies ahead?

Dungeon Twister is first and foremost a board game, before becoming a video game. For 8 years, fans around the world have been meeting regularly to earn who will be dungeon master. They await you. Learn Dungeon Twister in solo mode, then raise the stakes and confront other players in on-line duels.

Tempted by the prospect of one day dueling on-line with the world champion or the creator of the board game? Then get ready… It could happen sooner than you think.

Dungeon Twister has been given a PEGI 12 age rating with the descriptors "violence" and "PEGI Online", USK 6+ and ESRB T age ratings with the descriptors "Mild blood", "Mild fantasy violence" and "Suggestive themes". The game has been completely translated into English, French, German, Spanish and Italian.
