Something is wrong, Gunthro.
There are known problems with this page. If you are able to fix this, please edit the page and help us out by doing so.

Reason: Missing the rest of releases.
For newbie friendly guide to how to start playing DROD, see What is DROD?#DROD Versions.

Over the years DROD has accumulated a number of releases which can bring confusion even to veteran players. This article attempts to clear some of it.

Vocabulary Edit

While due to the community nature of wiki we can't ensure these names are used consistently across the whole site, we've done our best to keep it consistent in this page.

  • Engine refers to a specific set of features of a game. Classic DROD had these engines so far: Webfoot DROD, Caravel DROD, DROD 1.0, DROD 2.0, DROD 3.0, DROD 4.0, DROD 5.0 and Flash DROD.
  • Hold is a DROD's way to name levelsets. Each hold was built in a specific engine and has to be played in that or higher version of the engine. Playing an older hold in a newer engine gives you the benefit of various interface improvements. Official DROD holds were most often released accompanying an engine.
  • Release is a combination game, engine and hold which is packaged and sold to the end-user.
