What were they like?
The crypt was very similar to today's VHoS, except it was single boss and every time you attacked BlahBlah every vampire (including Blahblah himself) would be reshrouded. This unfortunately caused an exploit with lifesteal, since it was effectively limitless how many times you could "refill" the vampire enemies. Rather than rework the dungeons main shtick, it was merged with VHoS. Getandafix used to create every
type of plant, including barbing bushes. Both bosses have always blinked.
Bit of history regarding Slime Pits and Magma Mines: there was originally a dungeon in the south where goblins mined for slime. I forget what the dungeon was called, but it proved unpopular so it was removed. If you notice, the description of Magma Mines refers to this being the goblin's second plan after a failed slime mining operation, while Slime Pits is the remnants of their old haunt.
Then there was another dungeon in the south (where Ick Swamp is now) which had a river going down the middle. There was a one-way passage across the river, so once you crossed you could not come back. The boss had 90% resist both and weakening, and was a horrific piss-off foe.
In the north there used to be a "Vanishing Oasis" level which featured huge amounts of water that disappeared with every kill you made. The boss was a djinni with fireball retaliation.
There also used to be a dungeon called the "chokebox" and "spike hazard". Their only unique aspects were their layout, and they were removed after only a short time in rotation.
of dungeons that got cut before the final release.
