Deep in the dungeons lay the fabled ruby treasures. Many brave souls have tried to recover them; all have failed. Little did they know how futile their quests would be -- they met a horrible fate at the hands of a horrible serpent king. Can your party of champions defeat the dragon and claim the ruby treasures? Or will you, too, be vanquished?Swords and Serpents
is a first-person, party-based CRPG in the tradition of Wizardry
. Put together a team of 4 heroes (roll your own characters or simply use the pre-generated party) from three classes: warrior, thief, and magician. A 16-level dungeon awaits you, full of weapons, armor, magic spells, and other valuable items. Beware, though: an assortment of traditional fantasy beasts and villains awaits you!
Teleporters and "zoom tubes" speed up your travels. Temples provide safe havens for your party to restore health and mana. An auto-map feature helps the player keep track of what locations you have visited. A password system allows you to save your progress as you travel deeper into the darkness.
