Scattered across the kingdom are seven ancient major crystals which together invoke the power of Orb. Without it, you have no hope of defeating you nemesis.
You will creep through dungeons and castles, explore wilderness and glade, encounter traps and curses and puzzles on your quest. You will need everything you have and maybe a bit of luck just to barely conquer evil. Sit tight and be cautious because each move you make will be very critical.[/quote]
One Unique feature of this game is that you have two characters, which you can switch between at any time. Whichever one you aren't controlling follows you with an alright level of AI. Although you may choose to play with only one character, it is not recommended.
Think of this game as a 3D Diablo. They borrowed heavily from Diablo and made some nice improvements in the genre. I had rented this game for PSX a long time ago and had found it hard to stop playing. So when I saw it while browsing a discount bin, I picked it up for $9.99, what a steal! :D While the graphics aren't top quality anymore, this game is a must have for fans of dungeon crawlers. More than enough quests to do, monsters to kill and magical items to collect, to keep you busy for many hours.
