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 When you die, your inventory falls to the ground, some gold is lost forever, and you lose exp. points, but you can still respawn. You can't save during a mission, so you have to play well and die as few times as possible.
Amulets & Armor DOS The mission screen. You can choose the mission you want to go on next, buy and sell items such as enchanted rings and axes of mayhem at the store, and rest at the inn.
Amulets & Armor DOS Sword-to-sword combat with a deadly knight. Warrior types are excellent at this, but mages and their kind will be pulped.
Amulets & Armor DOS The game contains crossbows, but not longbows. This pesky elf will no doubt drop more ammo for the character to use when he dies.

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.
