The_Gamebook_Nook's Thoughts:

Let's take a peek at Into The Dungeon!

Favorite feature: I love how accessible this gamebook is. It's just fun to play. It feels like an experience that has been crafted with great care.

Other strengths: Each section contains good artwork on A5 pages. Several artists contributed to the project, but at no point do the offerings feel mishmashed. There's a surprising amount of replayability due to multiple characters, each with a unique victory condition, achievements to unlock, and a scoring system. The diceless gameplay system works well given the breezy, pick up and play nature of the outing. I also love the whimsical tone of this gamebook, which is rarer than it should be in the medium.

Drawbacks: The gamebook is short, sub 100 sections to be precise, and the story is insubstantial, but for this kind of pure dungeon crawl, that works to its advantage.
