Description of Temple of Apshai Trilogy

One of the earliest pioneers in the RPG genre (the first entry Dunjonquest, was released in 1982!), Epyx' Temples of Apshai Trilogy are semi-fun dungeon hack RPGs with an almost nonexistent plot but high playability quotient.

Best described as the graphical version of Rogue, you play a lone adventurer who is exploring the ruins of the temples of Apshai, looking for treasures and ways to build up your stats. The game is played from a top-down perspective, with more than adequate graphics. Although the game is a spiritual descendant of Rogue, there aren't nearly as many weapons to wield and monsters to kill, and the dungeons look very much the same after a while.

Recommended only for anyone who's interested in the history of RPGs, although the (older, and more primitive-looking) Rogue is ten times more fun and replayable.

This game shows what programmers can do when they know the machine better. I bought the first temple of apshai (not trilogy) when the graphics were stick figures with limited animation, if any. When the trilogy came out, the difference in artwork was amazing! And it was on exactly the same C64 machine.

I played this game until my Apple IIe like there was no tomorrow.

I found it a nice change of pace from the strictly text type of adventures.
it reminds me of 'The Dungeon of Fargoal!'.
