I am sure if this sounds as weird as the game really is and right now you are thinking WTF! But don’t let that put you off as Necromancer is quite easily one of the finest games to grace the Atari 8-bits. The graphics are superb with a great use of colour and attention to detail. The sound is even better with some of the best sound effects in any A8 game and a wonderfully haunting title track. Necromancer is a must-have title for all Atari computer fans.
People who are fond of black magic but squeamish when it comes to the ingredients (eye of newt, tongue of lizard, wing of bat, etc.) will be ecstatic over Necromancer. This enchantingly original game allows you to weave perfectly respectable spells without having to deal with anything really repulsive.

Necromancer holds a special place simply because of my personal timeline, but even if I divorce the nostalgia, I still appreciate the game's imagination and twitch factor. This is a hard game that demands real coordination. And when you get into the "zone," it's a ball.
This is years old -- and it shows. The Americana label is a nice idea, but do they have to release the really old and crusty American games? The graphics are awful, the sound is pretty bad, and the game itself is dull. Take a look at some of the other releases in the Americana series, most of them are miles better.
Although its graphics are terrific and its soundtrack haunting, Necromancer is one of those games whose whole is less than the sum of its parts. It takes a while to figure it out, and once you do, you may be sorry you even bothered.
graphics in the game are superb using
every color available On the Atari. The
details are as good as the colors
showing the leaves of trees that sway in
the wind. It's a fast paced game with
plenty of action to keep even the best
arcader busy with joystick controls. This
is definitely one of the best games in the
Synapse line for the Atari. Even the best
arcader will have a difficult time
defeating the wizard and reaching level
five of Act Three.
