    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.
