i finished cd version back in the day and when i started it, i thought its brainless empty click fest, but the lower you go , the more the game lives and i was amazed how great it was. For the real rpg fans is a must :-)

Played this game a few years ago, it was fun. But, as a form of copy protection, all the spells that you can cast were put in a spell book that was supposed to ship with the game. If I remember correctly, you had to use the correct runes in the correct order to cast a spell, it's impossible to guess. Unfortunately, towards the end of the game a magic spell is required to get through to a lower level of the dungeon, meaning that without the manual you get stuck towards the end of the game. I never did finish this game because the game compilation that I bought this with included the game manual but not the spell book.
