About The Game

Space Dungeon is an arcade video game.


If you pass level 99, you get to level 0 and it says 'You're a hero on level zero'.

When you reach 990,000 points, every time you shoot an enemy you get a free man. Be careful, your free men get knocked to 0 after 255.

A Space Dungeon unit appears in the 1983 movie 'Joysticks'.

A Space Dungeon machine was shown at the 2003 classic arcade games show 'California Extreme' in San Jose, California.

Tips and tricks

A Boring Score-grabbing Cheat

Lock yourself in a room by closing all the doors. The thief will appear (To close a door, go through it then back immediately - it may take more than once). Warning : this is a sure, but very slow, way to build points.
