Summary

A fun little diversion, with a good bit of potential.

The Good

Very advanced for its time. Though the graphics and sound are simple, there is a lot of room for customization. It also has a neat "create random adventure" feature that is good for folks with limited patience. Once an adventure is created, you can create a "stand-alone" executable to give out to your friends.

The Bad

In order to do a good job, you really have to take some time with this one. But that's to be expected, I suppose.

The Bottom Line

One of the better "construction sets" out there. Worth a look if you're a fan of the top-down RPGs.
