Description

It's a top-scroller that uses a "Your move-My move" system. This is multiplied about 30 times because every enemy on the level is allowed a move for every one of yours, but they don't all know where you are right away. It has a good and somewhat optional storyline, for the replay factor. When you create a new character you can distribute ability points between three characteristics, and select their gender and name. The levels and weapon abilities are randomly generated for an extremely high replay value.

Sales

Before the shareware version was re-released as freeware, it generated about 13,500 game registrations.

Shareware release

The game was originally released in two parts, Part 1 was shareware and downloadable from Epic Megagames. Part 2 was a ~$25 purchase, and continued the storyline.

Part one was subtitled A Question of Vengeance, part two was Lifthransir's Bane. It had a Norse mythology theme, as opposed to the usual Tolkienesque style.
