In Ancient Evil a master magician named Alaric constructed a big crypt of 24 levels. Everyone who dares to enter and survives has the opportunity to find gold and valuable items. Naturally, the player character doesn't let this chance pass.
The gameplay mechanics of this action role-playing game are very similar to Diablo. The player explores caverns and caves full of swords, sorcerers and spells, hacking and slashing monsters. The base character can specialize in either spell casting or hand-to-hand combat, and attributes improve through fighting and spell casting.
