An extremely hard to find game. It is a fantasy adventure where you can create your own characters, choose from a wide inventory of weapons and armor, and use freeform input combined with making choices to explore a dungeon. Watch out for the Chromatic Dragon!

This is a dungeon crawl game - equip your character, enter the dungeon, fight monsters and win treasure; traps abound as well. Many events are random. You can save your character (assuming he survives) to use in later episodes.

Balrog was a 'sampler' of the Maces and Magic series, with only the later ones being full games.
