Dungeon of Dance Category: VIC20 - GamesOct-17-2021

Dungeon of Dance by Jason Justian (2021) for the unexpanded VIC-20 is an old-school, but somewhat subverted, roguelike game. It has the classic genre elements: explore the dungeon, find food, armor, and potions that may or may not behave as advertised when imbibed. You'll encounter goblins to vex, wraiths to confound, and dragons to banish. The dragon holds the key to the door to the next level, and the only way to get that key is to best the dragon in a winner-take-all dance off! Find the Magic Mirror Ball to complete your quest.

You need a good memory to match your opponents' moves, and it only gets harder as you descend further into the depths of the Dungeon of Dance!

Fisher Price - My Grand Piano is a music education program for ages 3 - 8 for the Commodore 64 or 128 (in C64 mode).  From what I could gather, I believe a hardware keyboard overlay accompanied this, but isn't necessary to use the software.
