Bloodwych

Retrieve the Crystals of Storing from Treihadwyl Tower and save the universe from eternal damnation in the Spectrum version of this mighty one or two player RPG.

Choose four champions from a selection of sixteen clerics, warriors and wizards, then take them through the many levels of Treihadwyl, solving puzzles, hunting down keys and magic items, and slaying lackeys of the vile Zendrick. The icon command system handles interaction between characters, object manipulation, fighting and spell casting and though the two split screens leave the menus crammed together, selecting icons is suprisingly easy.

The cassette version is a bit of a fiddle, what with saving out character files, etc, but getting going on the disk version is a breeze.

If you ever drooled over Dungeon Master and the like, buying Bloodwych will save you buying an ST or Amiga.
