Drol is a video game published by Broderbund in 1983. It was originally written for the Apple II by Benny Aik Beng Ngo, and was ported to the Commodore 64 and Atari 8-bit family. It appeared for the SG-1000 in 1985 and Amiga in 1991.
The player controls a robot flying through a four story maze, attempting to rescue people and animals while avoiding traps and enemies such as alien creatures, snakes, eagles, magnets and axes. There are only three levels, but the game repeatedly starts over in a more difficult version if the third level is completed. In the third level of some versions, in order to reach the final floor without being eaten by a plant sprouting from out of nowhere, the player must choose between three different trapdoors, and the correct trapdoor varies from game to game.
