    While this is a good adaptation of the board game, it's not without issues. You can have either sound, or music, but not both; it is playable but very grinding in single player mode (no AI characters); the character save/load/add/remove system is clunky; checking hallways for traps/treasures only goes as far as the screen's display will show, even if the hallway just off screen is adjacent to the same room block; recovered treasures are not carried over to the next quest, nor do you receive a cash equivalent that can be saved; the game doesn't remember quests that you've completed (no check marks), so unless you're taking notes, you'll find yourself repeating completed quests.

    Being almost completely unrelated, and not at all a board game adaption, Ultima Underworld is a magnificent game. I mention it, only because it improves on many of the shortcomings of the Hero Quest DOS game.
Say something about HeroQuest! Did you play it? Did you like it or hate it? Do you have trouble running this game? Don't be afraid to ask for help (please, read the guide first).
