The kingdom cries out for justice! For centuries, the Temple of Darkness was sealed, guaranteeing peace for the kingdom above, until the treacherous imp Ascaroth crept into the castle, slipped past the guards and the watchful King Minox, and broke the seals! The Temple's opening spells doom, the kingdom overrun by powerful monsters!

Simple old-school fun
I was skeptical at first so I tried the Lite version and found myself hooked. First off, yes this can be VERY hard at first if you don't heal or rest after fighting. Once you've gained a few levels and found some better equipment besides your starting gear, you should be good to go. Speaking of equipment, the one feature that definately needs to be added is stats before equipping. Like many others have said before, not knowing what you're picking up can be annoying when you end up throwing away something good for something bad. Other than that the game is pretty straight forward, go out and earn XP/money, heal, repeat and find stuff along the way. Definately good for occupying your time. Also, here's a tip for moving around the map without being attacked. Stay on the outer edges and move diagnally between the frames. You can traverse to anywhere on the map without taking a single hit, helps when you're low on HP and need to make it to town.
A good challenge, worth the $, just small suggestions...
I really enjoyed this game, and after reading the reviews knew it would be a more old school zelda-style game. I like the repeatable levels, and the save option is easy, so I'm not worried about auto-save features, I usually can't play it long enough where it's a factor. Great game btw for quick moments to kill! Biggest suggestion I would make is please add a comparison feature for weapons and armor! I have no idea if linen is better then wool, or blessed iron is stronger then magical steel, etc??? or even a drop down chart would be great! I don't seem to have the attention span to keep track of the different weapon's stats as I equip them, so usually end up equipping just by how cool it sounds, and only afterwards find out that it was worse then the one I had. A sell feature in the store would be nice too, as not all of the items are pertinent to all classes. Nice job though! Any new world additions coming??
Pretty easy game. Won it twice with two different character classes and it didn't take long. With a Mage just sit on the edge of the screen and cast magic missile spells which will allow u to kill monsters that u can't even see. Just keep doing this until u r powerful enough to cast the meteor spell. The titanium three ring rune staff was the best weapon I could find. The weapon system is completely stupid on this game. Also don't try to improve armor or engage the old wizard or witch. It will cost u a level for stuff that isn't even necessary to win the game. To beat the harbinger lord use vanishing spells once the dragons are cleared. For the fighter you'll need tons of elixirs and holy waters. I recommend a weapon like titanium rune great sword or axe. There are better old school RPGs out there for less $$$. The early ultima games outclass this game by miles.
