Dungeonz a warrior fighting a bandit and a mage fighting a bat

Dungeonz.io is a free-for-all survivor io game where you must fight spooky creatures.

Enter a huge open world of monsters and adventure in this retro style MMORPG.

Train your stats and craft better gear to survive out in the wilderness.

Fight your way through mummies in pyramid crypts, and menacing vampires in their dark castle, to delve into perilous dungeons in search of riches and glory.

But be prepared! Once a dungeon has been entered, there are only two ways out, victory, or death…

Bring your friends along with you to clear dungeons as a party.

Your progress can be saved by using the continue code of your character (top right icon) to continue as that character later!



Move: WASD or arrow keys

Use/equip item: 1 to 0 number keys

Use equipped item: Left mouse click

Pick up item: E, or left mouse click on it

Drop item: Shift + 1 to 0 number keys, or drag and drop.

Rearrange items: Drag and drop

Chat: Enter (bottom left widget is global chat, via Discord)



You start with a number of respawn points.

Every time you die, you lose a respawn.

If you die with no respawns remaining, it is game over for you!

Gain extra respawns by finding respawn orbs.





Explore the land to gather materials to craft weapons, armour, tools and potions.

There are several crafting stations that can be used for different items. Simply walk into the crafting station to open the crafting panel. Any items in your inventory that can be used to craft another item at this station will show a blue up arrow button.

With a higher crafting stat (weaponry, armoury, toolery & potionry), the items you craft will last longer!






Items can be bought from NPC merchants in the main city, and around the world, for glory. Gain glory by doing most actions in the game, such as defeating enemies, completing tasks, gathering resources and beating dungeons.

Stand next to a merchant and click on them to open the shop panel.

The items that can be bought from merchants will always be of basic durability. Items crafted by other players will always be better than those bought from a shop, so make your own, or trade with other players!






Tasks are a set of small objectives to work towards during your adventures which give various rewards when complete.

Open the tasks panel in the top left to see your current tasks.

When a task is claimed, new tasks are added.

28/04/2019 - Update 4 - Shadow dōjō The mysterious deaths and disappearances of many notable figures throughout the lands has struck worry into the knights of Munud City. Reports suggest this is unlikely to be the work of common bandits, but instead a more highly trained and dangerous form of outlaw. A new fighting arena has recently finished construction in the dock area of the city, where adventurers can improve their combat skill against each other, in preparation for seeking out this new cunning foe... New: - Shadow dōjō - Master tier dungeon, 2000 Glory entry cost. - The first enemies with a special attack that they can use to be more of a threat to players.

Completing a task will give you another random one from the same category. - Tasks are given a random length, short/medium/long, which determines how many of a thing you need to do, and how many items/how much glory are given as the reward. - The range of different tasks is now much larger. - Missing stat purposes - The melee, ranged, magic and gathering stats now affect the chance that when you use an item related to those stats (such as attacking with a staff or using a pickaxe) that the item will not lose any durability.

16/11/2020 - Update 7 - Darkness An ominous veil of darkness has fell upon the world, ushering in a new age of uncertainty for the denizens of Munud City. Strange figures have been reported swarming in the shadows at night, mauling any creature foolish enough to wander near... Could this be related to the recent appearance of more drawfs in the known lands? Have they brought this curse with them, or were they fleeing from it themselves? Perhaps a journey into the western mountains will reveal the mystery of this adumbral plague... New: - Day/night cycle - Reduced visibility at night. - Some creatures now only spawn during certain times of day. - Some dungeons are now always at night, such as underground locations. - Adumbrals A vicious enemy that spawns only at night.
