Description of Bloodwych

This PC conversion of an Amiga dungeon romp didn't fare as well as the Amiga version, despite its being an excellent RPG that allows 2 players to play simultaneously. Innovative spells, cool monsters, good interface, and pleasant graphics make this a severely underrated RPG that deserves wider recognition.

Too bad the data disk was never ported to the PC. Also check out Hexx from this site, another solid RPG from the same designers that is essentially Bloodwych with better graphics.

Choose the ninja character and backstab the enemies for an enormous damage bonus :)

Flay (the skeleton character) doesn't need food and so is good to play alone.

Hi. I actually played this on the Atari ST way back when it first came out. Loved it. This and Dungeon Master.

FURIOUSUK , you described the game spot on

This game is a masterpiece of linear situation based dungeon crawl. As its linear you focus only on the puzzle/task currently at hand. Don't expect rich backstory or other such RPG fare, this is adventuring, hack-and-slash, puzzle-solving at its finest.

Solve interesting dungeon puzzles, find new equipment, level up for more power, simple, and brilliant!

The best spell is 'confuse' (blue/moon spell). It spins monsters in place; cast it when they face you so they are turned around and you will never be hit, rendering armour and vitality irrelevant.

If you play on DOS, I believe custom/quickstart parties are bugged and you cannot progress beyond a certain point AFAIK. You must use the preset party.
