Amulets and Armor is a mission-based role-playing game. The game comes with a number of missions of varying difficulty levels that the player can take in unrestricted order or repeat them. They each have four to five chapters, in which the player basically explores a dungeon, kills a lot of enemies, grabs some new loot, and find the exit.
The game comes in full, textured 3D, and the engine does allow the player to go 'up and down', as in over a spot where you were before. Enemies and items in the game are 2D sprites. Combat is action-based.
As of April 21, 2013, the game has been released as freeware on the official site. The new freeware version also adds a few new features designed to improve playability.
There are many unused monsters and objects left in the code, such as a wolf, a banshee and even a deer which can be killed for food!
Amulets and Armor is filled with references to ancient Troy. The prince in game is named Heinrich, and he discovers the 'Lost City', ruled by the cruel lich King Priam. Heinrich Schliemann was, of course, the discoverer of historic Troy, and King Priam was the king of the city in the war described in The Iliad.
