Somewhere on the top floor of a sinister tower, there is an evil wizard who likes conjuring powerful deities. Those mighty creatures threaten the wizard, but they are trapped in magical cages, unable to act. To prevent the revenge of gods, the wizard imprisoned the souls of the four greatest gods in four talismans, and then hid them in four different dungeons. Controlling a party of adventurers, you must retrieve these talismans and release the gods.

This is a first-person RPG with a 4-person party made up of warriors, wizards, rangers, and assassins. Characters are pre-generated and chosen from a pool of 16 adventurers (4 of each class). Choose from 32 spells drawn from the disciplines of earth, chaos, dragon, and night magic. Combat takes place on the same screen as exploration and is fully in real-time.

The game was meant to be a 3D remake of an old RPG called Bloodwych. When you are choosing your party members, in the beginning of the game, you can see that the characters are the same for both games. In fact, both games were created by the same developpers (Anthony Taglione and Pete James).


The original game came with a full-color poster.


A hintbook was only available from the (now-defunct) publisher, Psygnosis.
