Description from the packaging.

"They disbelieved my Wind Dragon. They pressed my greater demon. Now it's up to the Bard and his Magic Fire Horn..."

6 Gallant heroes cornered.
First you explored the city. Then the cellars and sewers below. Now you're trapped in Harkyn's Castle. 7 Levels conquered and still 9 to go.

Challenge your magic skills.
Command 4 different classes of Magic User: Conjurer, Magician, Sorceror and Wizard, each with unique spells. And the Bard who makes magic with his music. 85 Spells in all. But choose well- the wrong spell and you're history.

Bigger. Better. Just as good.
Pushes the power of your computer to its limits. So it's fast. It's big. And there's plenty of power for 3-D scrolling, full-color mazes, amazing sound effects and animated color monsters.

Excellent game design. Each level is demanding- and different. There are more monsters, mazes, "specials", logic puzzles, and magic items than you've ever seen in a game like this before.

So it's "just as good" as you hoped a Dungeon Fantasy game could be.

  • There's a fire in Harkyn's Castle, and the Dragon is breathing it right at you.
  • 3-D Scrolling city map features taverns and temples, towers and guardian statues.
  • 85 Magic spells, like Revelation, Animate Dead, Summoning and Sorceror Sight.
  • There are sixteen different 3-Dimensional full color mazes like Harkyn's Castle.
