Back Cover - DOS (US), Original Mail Order:

    First there was DOOM. Now comes HERETIC, the ultimate Sword & Sorcery battlefest!



    Imagine a virtual world of medieval fantasy right before your eyes. Look up, down and all around--everything moves with seamless, fluid realism. You are there, inside the game itself!

    You would expect no less from the graphic masters of Raven Software and the technical savants at id Software--the creators of the megahit DOOM!

    This time you'll cast eldritch spells from the Tomes of Power. Wield fantastic weapons such as the Firemace and Hellstaff. All to destroy the undead and bestial horrors that slaughtered your race.

    By the spirits of your Elders, the Heretic must have his vengeance!

    FEATURES

    • Supports up to four players via network, two by modem. Cooperate with your biddies or massacre them in a bloody deathmatch!
    • Advanced 3-D texture-mapping and state-of-the-art 360ยบ smooth scrolling in real time for the fastest, deadliest combat!
    • Walk, run, fly! Look all around you, even up and down!
    • Choose from among 7 weapons (from the simple staff to the awesome Phoenix Rod) and use magical artifacts to cast powerful spells.
