Hand to Hand is a Creature Spell in Dungeon Keeper.

General InformationEdit

The simplest attack, Hand-to-Hand allows the creature to whack the enemy with whatever claws, sword or other means it has available. All creatures can use hand-to-hand (apart from the Dragon-icon Dragon, who uses Flamebreath icon small Flame Breath instead).

Melee strength varies greatly between creatures. Some creatures, such as Bile-demon-icon Bile Demons, have strong hand-to-hand skill and use it as their primary form of attack. Other creatures, such as Warlock-icon Warlocks, are hopelessly weak and rely on their spell-casting abilities to hurt the enemy instead. Hand to Hand is also faster on some creatures than others.

Hand-to-hand is not 100% accurate. Each creature has a chance to hit the enemy, and a chance to dodge incoming hits. Hand-to-hand strength, accuracy and dodge ability increase with experience.

In Dungeon Keeper, while there are multiple types of hand to hand attack, they are grouped into two sections: fist and sword, the main difference being the sound made on contact with things like doors and Dungeon Hearts. In most cases, weaker or less physically skilled creatures, or those without actual weapons have the fist type, while more able creatures, or at least those with weapons have the sword type:

Trivia Edit

It is possible to edit the cfg data of the Dragon-icon Dragon to give him this ability. He would then have the 3rd highest attack rate and would use the fist symbol and sound.

The "swipe" graphics will be different for different creatures, for example claws, a sword slash, fists etc. for creatures who use those methods of attack.

Dungeon Keeper 2 Edit

In Dungeon Keeper 2, all creatures have Hand to Hand by default, but the icon is not present as a usable spell, and works differently. The icon for Hand to Hand is unique for nearly every creature and represents their means of attacking, for example, a Warlock's image is of his staff. Like the first game, the "swipe" graphic is different for each creature. Each creature's Hand to Hand icon is as follows:

Dungeon Keeper Online Edit

Hand-to-Hand is not a specific spell as such, but rather a range of mêlée attacks whose icon depends on the creature:
