- LordBucket - 13/05/2017 11:36Of all the old SSI "goldbox" D&D clone games, this was probably the best. Note however, that the game makes reference to "journal entries" that only existed in the paper manual. If you want to understand what's going on in the story, you'll need to download the manual from somewhere.
- David Galloway - 24/04/2017 20:00I played this game on my Tandy 1000HX computer. It had 640k ram, 1200 baud internal modem, 2 - 3 1/2" floppy drives, external 5 ¼ " floppy drive and a cm11 monitor with 16 colors. It also had a 9 wire dmp133 dot matrix printer. It ran on dos v2.11 with a program called deskview Tandy's version of windows like interface. When I played the game I would put in the first and second disk and open a program called pool.exe I think it was to play the game and it seemed like 10 minutes before the game started and once it did the fight scenes took forever to get through but, it had good sound and colors. It was a great game at that time.
