Tiny Dangerous Dungeons Is Like An Old Gameboy Castlevania

By Eugene . April 20, 2014 . 9:30am

People who played the original Nintendo Game Boy might remember the brick-sized handheld with a green-tinted LCD screen. You can re-live those memories now with Tiny Dangerous Dungeons.


This is a free-to-play social Flash game on Kongregate set in the Metroid-vania genre of free-form exploration and side-scrolling combat.


The controls are simple, with just the four directional pads and a further button for throwing knives obtained later in the game. It stars a plucky little kid as he tries to escape the, well, tiny dangerous dungeon.


Blast from the past or painful memories of what you had to go through for handheld gaming? Either way, it’s available for free to play on Kongregate. No registration is necessary.

    Definitely a blast from the past. I miss the times when games were games with actual content, not just service platforms for microtransactions ;/

  • The GameBoy Castlevania games weren’t “Metroidvania.” They played like the originals. There was lots of hard platforming and combat with no backtracking and little to no exploration.

  • Kongregate has a lot of good games. And almost none of them are social crap. Might go there to check this out!
