Description from the packaging.

A Forgotten Reams action adventure

Hillsfar: A city in the magical Forgotten Realms game world, rich with quests and challenges.

Hillsfar: An incredible fantasy that combines the best of role-playing adventures and fast paced action games.

Every visit to Hillsfar is a different, exhilarating experience. Explore the city, meet it's colorful denizens on the streets or in pubs and discover a quest (there are many possible ones).

Transfer your favorite character from the Pool of Radiance or Azure Bonds AD&D role-playing games, or create one from scratch. Your quest and the options available to you each game will change to suit your character's specialty (thief, mage, cleric or fighter).

Your quest will keep you constantly on the move. Fight in the arena against raging Minotaurs, ill-tempered orcs or insulted swordsmen. Enter different buildings and your maze-running and lock-picking skills will be required. Archery and equestrian events may also be part of your overall quest.

Think fast. Move fast. These mini-games happen in real time!

For both adventure and action, there's no place like Hillsfar!

  • Beautiful graphics present the city of Hillsfar in both 3-D and overhead views.

  • Lock picking, one of the many skills you may need to succeed in your quest.
