The Bridge of Catzad-Dum is an Eamon game (number 159 in the Eamon Adventurer's Guild's list). It is a parody of the passage through Moria but your task is not to take any old ring through safely, but to take revenge upon your master's murderer. The title is a word-play on the fact that all dwarves in the game have been replaced with cats.
Actually, the game is an adaptation of the first chapter of the novel The Adventures of Samurai Cat by Mark Rogers.
Personal evaluation: A very humorous game. There are no real problems, save for a lot of hack-n-slash, but the point of the game is more the funny descriptions.
