Take a mechanically solid "Wizardry" dungeon grinder, spread on bright System 7 colors, and garnish with that priceless 1990s sarcasm. Not having internet back then, I couldn't believe what I was seeing when a co-worker shared this. I spent years trying to find the author and pay the 10 bucks (not realizing he couldn't accept it if the company had shut down). If you love old-school RPGs, you must try this!

I remember playing this game a fair bit, the demo anyways. This was a long time ago, and as far as I could remember you needed to re roll your party characters a lot to get some seriously cool stats. After that it was a matter of going down, moving around not far from the entrance and taking down some enemies, then going back up to town before anybody died. I had to inch my way in and avoid the traps, also saving up for good stuff was not easy, monsters came in random pack sizes, some as large as 8 or 12 (I can't remember, it was oh so long ago). Good game, but the demo only had two levels and just as I was starting to get into the swing of it, I ended the demo... so sad Sad

I get lots and lots of lock ups in both Basilisk II and SheepShaver. Unplayable for me.
