Dungeon Master II: Skullkeep (ダンジョンマスターII スカルキープ) is a RPG for the Sega Mega-CD. The game was also apparently planned for release on the Sega Mega Drive, but that version was cancelled for unkown reasons.[7]

History

Critical reception

Dungeon Master II received mediocre reviews and sold poorly. Reviewing this version, GamePro commented that the standard Genesis controller does not work well with its point-and-click interface, and that a Sega Mouse is needed to fully enjoy the game. They also criticized the need to maintain light sources and food supplies.

Legacy

The Minecraft villagers were based on the shopkeepers of the game
