If you like old school dungeon scrollers like "Eye of the Beholder", it's very good. More puzzle based than straight up monster bashing and very atmospheric. It has an ending, but afterwards you can play custom made dungeons by other people. The game it self takes between 15 to 20 hours of play depending on how many secrets you want to find. btw, finding secrets is vital to get items needed to fight certain enemies.

yes if you do not mind an old-fashion mechanic. The game is challenging and puzzles are fun. Sounds is well done, i.e. you listen to your environment.

I played about 10 hours now and I am only on dungeon level 6 (out of 15 I believe).

The game is frequently on sale so I suggest you wait for a sale to buy it (I suspect we will have a Thanksgiving sale).

I've already bought it) I hope i'll like it))

So far, I've spent more time playing the custom dungeons on the workshop than the main story/dungeon. I found it hard to get into, but i think it's a really good game/engine with many hours of fun.

Takes me back to the sega mega drive and "Dungeons and dragons warriors of the eternal sun", the dungeons in that game play just like this. I was surprised how well the same gameplay style works in 3D.

Really very good 3D graphics! I don't know how they made so because the game requires only 1 GB!!

I just bought it now on a flash sale. Looks old school gaming to me, something from the Amiga/Atari ST days....

I think any review or opinion along the lines "if you like the old things" is redundant. Any meaningful answer would have to be by someone who never played or liked any old game like that. (Liking or disliking an original, for that matter, can not simply put down to the inherent quality or lack of quality of the basic model. I think the majority of potential buyers or even owners is not likely to play or have played an original as well.)

I've played games like lands of lore, eye of beholder, might and magic, wizardry, arkania series. I don't like this game. The interface isn't as good as some of the old games of the genre.

Totally worth!
I bought this on Humble Store at a higher price.

Can someone tell me what the puzzles are like? Are they environmental, i.e. put log "here" to jump "there", or are they inventory based, i.e. combine rope with hook to make string to retrieve key, etc.? I'm asking because I don't care for certain puzzles as they can sometimes interfere with the "action" in games. Nothing makes me angrier than getting stuck on a puzzle (which can't be skipped) and not being able to progress in a game, especially if the solution isn't logical. I like piecing things together or rotating pipes to make water flow, but match 3 games aren't fun, in my opinion. Finding clues as part of a story or even special weapons, as was mentioned above, would be fun.

I'm interested in the game because I like old school RPGs and it's on sale. Any help will be greatly appreciated. :-)

They are usually logical puzzles involving stuff in the environment such as switches, pits and teleporters. Or there's a short clue you must act upon, like put a certain item in a slot and the clue hints at what it is.

Yeah! I like such puzzles.

I really would have be amazed if Bane of the Cosmic Forge had looked like this on my early 90's PC. It is a good game, with modern graphics and certainly gets you nostalgic again.

Just to parrot others, if you enjoyed old school Eye of the Beholder and other dungeon romps you'll probably like this game. My only problem with it is some puzzles are time trials that are fine tuned down to the nano-second to unlock secrets and that's kind of infuriating after trying it about 20-30 times only to fall down another pit.

True these items aren't essential to finishing the game, but there's really no reason the puzzles need to be that merciless. Otherwise, fantastic and fun game, and the price is less than the latte you bought while drinking it playing this thing.
