Summary

One of the Great Dungeon crawls

The Good

This game gave you a simplistic interface, good graphics, and lots of hacking and slashing. Who can forget the little things like teleporting into the room with 4 groups of 99 bezerkers. Or wandering for days on the dark level in Mangar's tower. It is an absolute must for all RPG players to play this game.

The Bad

The only thing that I did not like about this game is that I owned a Tandy 1000 at the time it came out for the Commodore 64, and I had to wait for something like a year to a year and a half before it was released for the PC. Also, the sound was a little basic, but what could you expect for the time. I am probably just biased due to the advances in sound technology for the PC.

The Bottom Line

A great hack 'n slash dungeon crawl with a lot of gameplay.
