Description from the packaging.

The ultimate role-playing fantasy game.

Beneath The City of Xebec's Demise lies The Dungeon. These dank, gloomy corridors hold many of the secrets to your existence in Alternate Reality. Take your high-level character from The City into The Dungeon and explore with confidence. Or, if you dare, develop a brand new character from the moment you walk through the forbidding Dungeon portal.

Accept the quest of Acrinimiril the Wizard; join a Guild and learn to use magic spells; sort out the rumors passed on from the life-forms you encounter; and discover the path to the Oracle of prophecy.

Good deeds and a visit to the Dungeon chapel can help to redeem an evil adventurer. Make friends where you can, but beware: friends in one quarter can lead to foes in another!

Four levels of Dungeon to explore; multitudes of new monsters; quest upon quest; and strange forces, both evil and good, take you further toward your ultimate goal in the Alternate Reality series; return to Earth or seek revenge on your captors.


  • Second game in the Alternate Reality series.
  • Three-dimensional scrolling.
  • Original music.
  • Combined keyboard and joystick action.
  • One-third more territory to explore than in The City.
