I've been wondering what "Drunter und Drüber" actually means - are they names, or puns of some sort?

Babelfish isn't any help, and Google turns up adverts for underwear!

It's slightly shortened from "Darunter und darüber", which can be most closely translated as "under and over there/it" or "above and below it". I guess it's intended to convey the complexity and unpredictability of the routes that will develop as the game progresses.

Halloween Jack got it right. It means 'topsy turvy', or just plain 'messy.'

Idiomatically, thats what it means "messy" or "topsy turvy".

Literally translated, it means "underneath & over-top"

A hundred points for you. Yes, "Drunter und drüber" is a German idiom and means "messy" or "topsy turvy".
