Happy years passed as one day. Grateful people of the Fairyland composed numerous songs and tales about the dwarves' adventures. They showed their appreciation with royal feasts.

But the real hero cannot rest on the laurels, fighting for the weak is his destiny. Weapons are sharp, magic potions not sour.

To secure peace means to prepare for war... A new challenge for your favorite heroes! This quest is even more difficult! It's the most enthralling adventure you've ever gone through... This time the dwarves are to pursue evil not only in the dungeons, but in the open air too. The enemy has cherished ill-will and got slier. Lots of his minions are out to make people suffer. Is there a hero who can come to the rescue of poor people? Two heroes armed to the teeth, with the pockets full of gold to buy more weapons from the merchant. The dwarves' courage and your ingenuity will crack this quest, but not so fast.

You'll spend long hours fully enchanted by the game, and so will your friends.

This exciting game was already present at GGAOTD, and today we offer renewed version of it, which includes 26 episodes instead of 8!

Now that my computer is behaving itself I am really enjoying this game. So colourful and so many levels - some of which are huge. I shall be playing this for a long time to get to the end.

I had to quit playing because of the key control CTL (for firing)...since it is right next to the key for windows and you have to move fast I would accidentally hit the windows...this would take me out of the game for several MINUTES and it got frustrating. Other than that, I liked it.

I didn't like this one at all. I don't like games that I have to use the arrows to play. I'd much rather use my mouse. Seemed interesting at first, but you can't jump on the creatures to kill them? And, what are those flying things? How do we know if they're good or bad? Didn't take long for me to exit.

Is anyone else having problems activating? I keep getting an error message that says to change my firewall settings or retry later. I am 99.9% sure that it isn't my firewall as I do this every day with no problems. Is it the server? Is anyone else having this problem? Thanks.

Thanks for the game, GAOTD!

This is perfect for me, as I've been a lazy "old-lady-games" person for decades - you know, mahjonng/card solitaire/Bejeweled, etc. This game gets me more familiar with using the keyboard to control the action.

Experienced gamers, no. Newbies who're finally realizing what they've been missing all these years: YES!

My BF thinks it's hilarious to see me playing this game - he hopes this will help me live more than 45 seconds in Unreal Tournament (I do a lot of cussin' while playing that game, due to my "D-OH!" factor).

I tried selecting the option of using my mousepad but it wouldnt let me use it,so I ended up still using the keyboard. Atleast I get to change the keyboard controls to suit what's more comfotable for me. The only sounds that I found annoying was the birds and crickets,but the sounds during the main play of the game was alright.The graphics were so-so,and overall I'd rate this a 6.

Wow, I've spent a couple of hours (and still not finished) perusing the games content of the Ytanium site and am realy amazed at some of the excellent fan made games.

Here's the link:

Hey guys, some of the games from this site should be worth linking to the freeware library :)

I know some of you are really upset about this game because you prefer the alien/monster/bad guy shooting games, with more adult graphics. I am glad to see this game and more that are tailored for children. Maybe we all don't play this game but it is great to have for my friends' children when they come over. Thank you GAOTD for giving us some variety. I really enjoy the relaxing part of games, and find I get too uptight after a few of the intense shooting games. I enjoy them but not all the time. I really enjoy the combination puzzle/thinking/logical games at night, plus it is good for the brain. After a day on the computer working, it is good to give tired hands a break. It was also very nice to give this full game on Easter...I think an RIPish game - (Decent into the Ascension) - wouldn't have been appropriate today!

I was looking forward to this game, as it looked like a lot of fun..But in the options part where it allows you to turn on the gamepad, you can turn it on but then it does not work in the game..Also my dwarve keeps flashing on and off like a lightbulb..Not sure if it is my version of the game or if it the game itself..It would have been more fun with the game pad I think, too bad it does not work in game..

Thank you #12 WhiteRabbit for an excellent description and #5 Bobby for hints and tips. The programmer's description wasn't very informative at all, it wasn't even clear that this is a platform game.

Very beautiful graphics and it's nice that no episodes are locked. All are open right from the beginning so it's like 26 mini games all in one instead of having to complete episodes in order before trying others. I think this episode approach is much better for kids than defined levels that must be passed before they can proceed. They never get themselves in a spot where they have to keep repeating the same frustrating level over and over. Instead they can just move on to a new episode and try the difficult one later.

Keyboard controls work fine, it just takes some getting used to, especially when trying to get a character up a flight of stairs. Instructions in How to Play doesn't explain controls, instead go to Options and page down with arrow keys and there will be a clear explanation at the bottom of the screen for each. Controls can also be edited from this screen and the game accepts a gamepad if preferred over the keyboard.

Moving platforms work differently than most platform games. They move the character up and down like most platform games but also serve as transporters to other parts of the map in each episode. You can also move to other parts by moving off the side like a side scroller. Whatever way you move thorough the map start firing right away as soon as in a new area, enemies are usually right at the beginning of each screen. Using the tab key to view the map helps a lot to know where you are and how much area still needs to be covered.

I wasn't into platform games of any type till the GGAotD gave us Brave Dwarves Back for Treasure and Brave dwarves 2 in the first month of the Game giveaways inception. The second one was a big improvement on the first game, graphically. I lost both of these following a format of my main system. My children and all their friends thought the game was fabulous, so to get the deluxe edition is fantastic. The main difference between the deluxe and the non deluxe edition is that you have all 26 episodes as opposed to 8 episodes. The first 8 are repeated from the Brave Dwarves 2 game.

The game also has more themes and even a brave dwarves slot machine. (Maybe you don't want to push your kids into the gambling thread; however I used to love slots as a child. Most of my holiday money was spent on them and I don't regret it one iota; it taught me not to be foolish with my money and at 50 I've never been into a casino or a betting shop in my life. :)

The graphics are very well made, there’s enough sparkle and collectables to keep the greediest of kids happy. :D There’s a wide selection of music that fits well with the Dwarves theme. Not too overpowering and you also have the ability to turn the music right down to 0 if you wish. There’s the ability to lock the game using a parent switch and you can also use a game pad as opposed to the keyboard.

The aim of each episode is to collect all the keys and then defeat the boss. This is a must have for the family. You’ll find a ‘How to play section that tells you what all the collectables/power-ups do, and when you need a rest or have other more important matters to attend to you can save the game till another appropriate moment. I know what my kids will be doing when they get back from their exploration of Dove dale in Derbyshire, UK. :D

This version has been recently updated (January 2007)

For those who like to cheat, (like my son) there’s some cheat codes available; all you have to do is type one of the words below while in game to activate the cheat; ensuring it’s written exactly as indicated below:

giveallkeys …..this will take you to the end of the level where the only task you have to do is defeat the boss

givecompass

I give this an 8 out of 10 for playability and fun.

Thank you GameOver Games and the GGAotD team for a fantastic giveaway. :) :) :)

While it does look nice it's a wee bit too much. It's sometimes difficult to recognize the enemies behind all the shiny moving blinky stuff. Also the control is not up to par with the graphic.

Nice, but nothing to write home about.

Also, it creates an entry in my Favourites. This is a NONO!

Looking at a screenshot of the game you might be fooled into thinking the game is good.

Play the game for two or three minutes and you will only want to uninstall because the controls are terrible.

The controls are unresponsive and erratic. That is the only way I can describe them. This really needs to be fixed before the game could ever be considered playable.

Dunno what 2 is going on about, obviously not had enough Easter Eggs. Options menu lets u turn off music and sounds. Cute platform game, great for idling away a few hours. Installs and works fine, I like it.

downloaded this and played if for a while.
Graphics were good.
sound was V E R Y annoying, I had to turn it off, those chirping birds about drive you nuts.
The movement was easy I'll play it a few more times, just to see what happens as you get deeper into the game.
it gets ****** of 10 stars

AUUUGH! I just purchased this game, via Real Arcade, for the grandkids!

Sigh ..

actually, the game has been a hit around here. In play, there are two dwarves, each with different weapons. It's up to you to figure out which will be the most efficient for each level. The level of challenge depends upon your choice of dwarf and weapon. Along the way, your brave little dwarf will be collecting brightly colored jewels and coins while keeping a wary eye out for wily characters.

The challenges facing the dwarves may not cost a life ... sometimes they just cost money...lots of money! Not to worry .. there is a slot machine in the armory! Feel lucky?

Some of the levels have hidden challenges and rewards that may take a couple of rounds to discover. The dwarves could be exploring forests with mutant bugs, abandoned mines with creaking timbers and all sorts of surprises, eerie castles complete with ghosts and skeletal archers, rivers and underwater caves (watch out for those fish!), snow-covered villages or several combinations of each.

You have the ability to save the game mid-level! Better yet, all of the loot you acquire on one adventure can be carried over to the next. Each level has a boss to challenge .. good luck with those!

Post your accumulated score on the 'net and compare to others.

Brave Dwarves is a welcome change from bloody shoot-em-up games. It is truly family fun that all ages can enjoy.
