DescriptionIshar: Legend of the Fortress
is the sequel to the Crystals of Arborea
. Morgoth and Morgula, the black god and his witch wife who were defeated in the previous game, had a child, Krogh. Their evil progeny is based in the fortress Ishar, which means "unknown" in the elven tongue, and has plans to reduce to population of Kendoria to slavery.
The player takes the role of a traveler who, with the aid of up to five companions, battles through the fortress to defeat Krogh and stop the spread of the powers of chaos. Unlike its predecessor, Ishar
is viewed entirely from first-person perspective, and its combat is real-time rather than turn-based.

Ishar was probably the game with the most annoying savegame system ever: if you wanted to save, you needed to pay some gold for it (I believe it was 100 GP). And believe me - it was nearly impossible to get that much in the beginning of the game, so you could either leave your machine switched on for days, play until you got enough or - well, just quit :)
