Remember This?

Can you guess this old game from just one screenshot?

Not sure if I should give hints... we'll see how you're doing as the day wears on... I'll update this post with the answer at 5pm today if no one has guessed before then. Or if you do guess it before then, feel free to share your memories of a classic game.

Good luck!


    Looks kinda like hero quest, but a smidge earlier... :/

    Legend, from the amiga.
    Or World of Legend on the PC.

    I liked it, never finished it though.

      No. It was "Legend" on PC too. "World of Legend" was the sequel.

    "Legend"! Man, this game hurt my brain for weeks, as they'd neglected to put a manual in the box. Thanks, Tandy!

    4 Crystals of Trazere!
    Also called Legend in some places.

    Awesome magic combo system in that game.
    Also had some connection to Bloodwych...

      The magic system would allow you to create your own spells.

      So you could have a missile effect which did, for example fire damage to one square. Then you could add a splash effect which burst out new missile in all eight directions. Then you could add when those missile hit then left a persistent cloud effect on the ground where they hit.

      It was amazingly deep without being complex.

      Yep, that's what I loved about this game. Crazy hard, I never finished it after getting uber stuck on a teleport puzzle, but that spell system was ahead of its time.

      Sure, Loom did some creative spell stuff, but this let you build massive spell chains and create all kinds of awesome spell utility. All you needed was enough ingredients...

      I just wish there was a walkthrough somewhere out there... have never found out how to beat that damn puzzle!

        Haha - I think I may have been stuck in the same place. Some of the puzzle were insane.


    Might even be Witch King...

    Four Crystals Of Trazere on IBM/PC/DOS.

    Ridiculously hard game. Didn't know what to do! haha.

    Hero Quest FTW!

    Heroquest on what looks to be a very Amiga-ish (Maybe Atari ST?) platform?

    Looks like some sort of DnD game. No idea what one though.

    I remember this game, managed to finish it but it was hard. I ended up creating a spell that released multiple regeneration/healing/back to life clouds everywhere, just to keep my party alive and fighting!! It was the only way to win at the end, IIRC.
