Yes, it does what it says on Windows XP- you can set up a dungeon crawl. There was a lot of hard work put into creating Dungeon Crawler, but the program feels and looks a bit dated for 2013. It reminds me of Diamond Mind Baseball- a text sim with a lot of details and options, and a reliance on you to use your imagination. DMB grew on me (I was not impressed after installation), so I hope Dungeon Crawler does grow on me, especially with the hefty price tag.

It's not really intuitive so I found myself re-reading the help files a lot and am still discovering things. The online community doesn't seem to be active. This is really a niche product with a small target audience. I was hoping for an easy out-of-the-box crawler to edit for unlimited solo play, but it takes a lot of work. Access database management to add and change tables is also outdated (I, like many others, don't use Microsoft Office).

The random generators for towns, names, and items are all well and good but not worth the price of admission.The rules are D&D 3.5 based but I'm a Basic, 1E, and 2E player, and was hoping for easy rule customization.

The frustrating part of this program is tricking myself into a solo game without cheating or accidentally hitting the wrong button. Monster troops and combat looks confusing. Not yet sure if to hit dice rolls are simmed.

On the plus side: no deceptive advertising, robust database, labor of love, great randomization, nice character and party creation, and cool traps.

Would have preferred a non-sandbox mode for solo adventures (a more structured adventure where I am a player, not a DM/player).

I may come back and edit this review with more experience under my belt. I was on the fence for a while, but have a bit of buyer's regret.

Very good software. I am planning on using it in all my fantasy games from now on. I don't think there could be higher praise. That being said, I would like to see more non dungeon stuff...
