Dungeon Keeper Wiki

The Wooden Door is the first door the Keeper gets. It's the weakest door in Dungeon Keeper and Dungeon Keeper 2, but they are good at controlling where your creatures go without paying a high cost.

Dungeon Keeper[]

The Wooden Door is the first door available to the player and is also the weakest. First introduced in Flowerhat and made of plain wood, this door cannot sustain much damage before it is destroyed, even by weak creatures. Using them as defence is not recommended unless one is desperate, as they would stop a mob of creatures only for a brief moment. However, Wooden Doors are very useful for restricting the access of your own creatures, such as blocking off rooms or making sure your creatures follow a certain route. Another good use of Wooden Doors is to use them to improve the efficiency of one’s rooms, but for Training Rooms, stronger doors may be preferable for this purpose because creatures training will actually hit, and therefore eventually destroy, doors.

In KeeperFX, a Ghost has a special ability that allows it to pass through the door, even if it is locked.

Dungeon Keeper 2[]

Wooden Doors are almost useless for trying to keep enemies out of a dungeon. However, they are the most cost-effective way to keep friendly units from entering or leaving specific parts of the dungeon.
