This game is a close relative of the better-known Kroz series. Searching for the Heart of Courage in the Ezam dungeons, the player must evade the lost souls of previous adventurers while strategically using the pick axes and teleport scrolls strewn about the place. The game's primary twist is that it takes place in a maze that is largely invisible. After a tantalizing glimpse of the whole area at the start of play, most of the maze disappears, with wall segments only reappearing when the player bumps into them. Pick axes can be used to cut through wall segments and teleport scrolls take the player to a random spot in the maze. While all this is going on, the lost souls relentlessly home in on the player, adding urgency to the proceedings.
