A temple in Thorwal
Buying some weapons and armour
A fight at night
Das Schwarze Auge consists of three parts: Overland travel on the 2D map (see screenshot 4), city and dungeon exploration in 3D...
...and isometric combat.
The game provides a crude, color-coded automap.
Your quest is to visit persons all over Aventurien...
...and collect pieces of an ancient map that point the way to the legendary Blade of Destiny.
Unfortunately, Orcish hordes are on a rampage through the land, and will ambush you frequently.
Boss battle: This druid with his pack of white wolves has one of the map pieces you're looking for.
Travelling by ship is quick, but not without its dangers: a giant octopod may attack...
...and pirates may board the ship, forcing you to defend yourself.
Camping in the wilderness, your party can search for valuable herbs.
Entering a dungeon.
Picking a locked door in a cave.
A chest! But beware: it might be trapped.
Dungeon automap. Since levels are always square, you can easily figure out where secret rooms are.
Dungeon combat. As our fighter strikes, a mummy crumbles to ashes.
In a fierce fight against necromancers and their undead vassals, one of our party members has been knocked out.
