Description

Evil is in the land of Yamato. Zanshin, the horrible demon, is unleashed and seeks to destroy the land and to kill its inhabitants, commanding a horde of zombies and skeletons. Seven samurai warriors, all of them under your command, have to stop the demon.

Throne Of Darkness is an action-RPG very similar to Diablo. The combat is action-based: left-click to hit the enemy, right-click to use a spell. Unlike Diablo, it is a party-RPG and its events take place in Japan of the Middle Ages.

Trivia

The title of the game is probably a homage to the movie "Kumonosu jo" (Throne of Blood) by the famous Japanese director, Akira Kurosawa.
