Description official description

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons: Treasure of Tarmin Cartridge is a first-person dungeon crawler. It features gameplay elements such as hidden doors, magical weapons and a versatile inventory (which requires you to keep yourself fed and rested, otherwise you'll lose health). It also features up to 256 randomly-generated levels of the maze (depending on which of the 4 difficulty levels you choose) where you'll fight real-time battles against increasingly fierce creatures until you reach the Minotaur's lair, where he guards the Treasure of Tarmin.

First Console 3D Dungeons and Dragons game.

The Good
The variety of the enemies and items made it interesting. The 3D was the first of it's kind and even though it was repetitive and very low res it was the first game that truly felt like you were playing DnD.

The Bad
The 10 x 10 layout did get repetitive after a while. The Dungeon map was interesting but only showed ten levels. There was no real end to the quest. Killing the Minotaur was impossible the first few times you saw him and things got much harder. The game took a long time and as with all the early console games no saves to help you out.

The Bottom Line
Advanced Dungeons and Dragons goes 3D and takes you deep into a labyrinth to battle monsters and other things while collecting treasure. Build up your weapons and protection along the way. Find and destroy the deadly Minotaur.

Elementary 3D perspective maze exploration takes you into the game.
