If you want to try out this genre without tackling anything too complex then this game is recommended, otherwise stick with it's meatier competitors.

Questron II is a very limited game in terms of interaction, but there's a fair amount of exploring to do. Gameplay is rapid (as in Blacksilver) and this combined with the fact that death brings immediate resurrection, makes it suitable for impatient players or those wanting a very simple introduction to this type of game. What you won't get, however, is the involvement that comes from creating your own characters and developing them together as a team. Perhaps Questron III will address this sad deficiency...

Aside from going into tombs and dungeons there is little to do in the game except fight monsters (and castle guards) to accumulate gold, and trek around the towns looking for better weapons and armor. Puzzles are virtually non-existent. Destroying the evil book of magic, when you finally reach it, is extremely simple to do. Aside from the guards, no one will try to stop you, so there is not even a grand, climactic finish to the game. The manual is not expansive, but is certainly adequate for the game. It contains enough to get you started, including brief descriptions of the monsters that inhabit various areas and dungeons, as well as some background information on the quest. Bottom line: Not equal to the original; best for the beginner, not the experienced.
