Torneko no Daibōken: Fushigi no Dungeon (トルネコの大冒険 不思議のダンジョン?) (loosely translated to Torneko's Great Adventure: Mysterious Dungeon)[1] is the first game in the Mysterious Dungeon series. This installment features Torneko (or Taloon, as he was known in North America), the merchant from Dragon Warrior IV. The game involves Torneko adventuring around in the "Mysterious Dungeon" in search of items.

Plot[edit | edit source]

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The gameplay is similar to roguelike style PC games. The main similarity is the heavy use of randomized dungeons and effects.

While Torneko explores the dungeon, he collects items and fights monsters, similar to the ones found in Dragon Quest games. If Torneko leaves the dungeon, he can sell off the items he found. He can also equip certain items found in the dungeon. By saving up money, Torneko can improve his home and shop.

Music[edit | edit source]

As with other games in the Dragon Quest series, the musical score for the game was composed by Koichi Sugiyama. Sony Records released the soundtrack, titled Suite Torneko's Great Adventure: Musical Chemistry, on October 21, 1993 in Japan. It contains eight arranged tracks performed by a chamber orchestra, as well as three tracks containing original game music.[2] Two pieces of music from the game were performed by the Tokyo City Philharmonic Orchestra at the Game Music Concert 3 the year of the game's release.[3]

Reception[edit | edit source]

In 2006, the game was voted number 78 by the readers of Famitsu magazine in its top 100 games of all time.[4]
