The Archmage Khelben summons the Heroes of Waterdeep, slayers of the Beholder Xanathar, for another mission. Strange things are happening in the forests near Waterdeep, centered around the Temple Darkmoon. People have been disappearing and shallow graves containing human remains have been found. Khelben teleports the party to the forests near Darkmoon so they may find out what kind of evil is working in the towers of the temple.

Eye of the Beholder II: The Legend of Darkmoon is, like its predecessor, a first-person dungeon-crawling role-playing game based on the second edition of AD&D rules. It uses the same point-and-click gameplay mechanics and controls as the first game, with only minor changes. The game is set entirely in pseudo-3D maze-like areas; no automapping is available. Combat flows in real time, and characters can move as a single unit to lure enemies or avoid blows.

A starting party consists of four characters, which can be transferred from the earlier game or created from scratch. Six classes (Fighter, Ranger, Paladin, Cleric, Mage, and Thief) are available. Characters can reach higher levels and learn new spells, must face new and tough monsters, and solve multiple puzzles. Compared to the first game, many more illustrated NPC encounters and cutscenes were added.


Eye of the Beholder II: The Legend of Darkmoon DOS The game has a barely noticeable sense of humor. Such scenes serve to lighten the mood a bit - and you'll need it, given the games high difficulty level
Eye of the Beholder II: The Legend of Darkmoon DOS More interesting detail in the next tower. Check out my new and improved inventory with some higher-level items! Also displaying some diverse cleric spells
Eye of the Beholder II: The Legend of Darkmoon DOS Who are you pointing at, punk?!
Eye of the Beholder II: The Legend of Darkmoon DOS Late-game decisive boss battle - which isn't going too well. Either you master the "side-step technique" or you can forget about ever winning this game
