Satan has been the best friend the church has ever had, as he had kept it open all these years. ~Anton Szandor LaVey, The Satanic Bible

In the early to mid-80s, well-to-do families in the American South possessed a home computer. My family was no exception as we owned the best-selling Commodore 64. As an only child, it was a saving grace over the long hot summers.  I’d spend hours playing games like Where in the USA… or Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? or my all-time favorite Dungeons of the Algebra Dragons. Its safe to say that I complex math was the only thing Algebra Dragons taught, I also learned something about spiritual warfare.

The game’s backdrop is centered in a multi-story dungeon. As the main character, you are portrayed as a short-legged red-headed youngster. The multi-fold objective is to find two golden keys, then find your way out to safety. As best stated in a 1985 review: “There are three floors in the dungeon and where you are when you decide to exit determines how many ladders you must find.”1 Although this may sound easy, its far from it because you are not alone.
