Castle of the Winds

Castle of the Winds is a fantasy roguelike role-playing game developed by SaadaSoft in the early 1990s. It was designed for Windows 3.x and is notable for being one of the earliest graphical RPGs for that platform. The game features a top-down perspective and incorporates elements of dungeon crawling, exploration, and character development.
The game uses a simple turn-based combat system where players can engage enemies using various weapons and spells. As players progress, they gain experience points, which they can use to improve their character's attributes and abilities.

    I cannot count how many of my childhood hours were dumped into this game. It's one of those genres that I feel were broken by the advancement of gaming.
