The "G" marks the location of Dungeon of Time

The Dungeon of Time is located in a small valley surrounded by mountains on an island, and it is accessible only through the Moongates. It conceals the Time Lord, that reveals information necessary to clear the game.

In the 16-bit ports, the Mark of Fire in this dungeon is replaced by a third Mark of Kings. In the NES port, the Mark of Kings on floor 2 is replaced by another Mark of Fire.

This dungeon is nameless in the original ports. It was named "Cave of Moon" in the NES version. External sources call it "Dungeon of Time", probably an abbreviation of "Dungeon of the Time Lord".



  • G = Gremlin (steals food)
  • T = Trap
