In NightStone you get the chance to play a Barbarian, Sorceress
and Amazon, joining forces to wade your way through a land plagued
by evil to destroy the NightStone.
A basic isometric roleplayer, each of your characters has a limited
series of statistics and an overall 'level' that, obviously,
increases as you play. Limited inventory slots exist for each
character and, with only one location to sell and buy items present
in the game, you will have to juggle your inventory carefully.
The land you explore is split up into over 30 'sections', each of
which is the basis for a single mission. Missions can be 'destroy all
of monster type X', or 'find such-and-such an item' or even just make
it through alive. Each of your champions start the game at different
points of the landscape, so your first few missions will be spent just
getting them together to join forces. Saves are not possible during a
single mission - only once you have completed and returned to main
land overview map.
Multiplayer options are also available, and the game comes with a
simple-to-use adventure and mission editor that will allow you to
create your own quests for up to 8 friends to play.
