Description

Amulets and Armor is a mission-based role-playing game. The game comes with a number of missions of varying difficulty levels that the player can take in unrestricted order or repeat them. They each have four to five chapters, in which the player basically explores a dungeon, kills a lot of enemies, grabs some new loot, and find the exit.

The game comes in full, textured 3D, and the engine does allow the player to go 'up and down', as in over a spot where you were before. Enemies and items in the game are 2D sprites. Combat is action-based.

Screenshots

Amulets & Armor DOS Spells are cast from combinations of runes. As you progress through the game, you'll find more runes and spell sheets that allow you to utilize them. There are three systems of magic; for each system the rune combinations will produce different results.

References

Amulets and Armor is filled with references to ancient Troy. The prince in game is named Heinrich, and he discovers the 'Lost City', ruled by the cruel lich King Priam. Heinrich Schliemann was, of course, the discoverer of historic Troy, and King Priam was the king of the city in the war described in The Iliad.
