SummaryA fantastic game, better than the remake
The GoodThe plot which was explained when you selected your character, the wire-frame backgrounds and the CD music (on the floppy release, there is MIDI instead). The sounds are well recorded, you can hear creaks if you step on wood, background sound effects like drips, opening doors, and the digital speech. The graphics of the objects look well and have plenty of textures. These were flat-shaded, way back before the later games which had full textures and these were state of the art back in 1992.
The BadThe combat and the poorly made control setup. The control is delayed slightly, which means that you must press and tap the up arrow key to run. The monsters look hilarious looking when you can see them for the first time. It could last for some minutes around 10 or so if you are fast enough, or an hour if you readed the books in the game you picked up. There is replay value though. You can try the game once more with a different character.
