Description of Drakkhen

Betrayal at Krondor is usually credited as the first RPG to use first-person, 3D landscape. But as you can see here that's definitely not the case: Drakkhen, released in the U.S. by MicroProse, was way ahead of its time in many ways.

It is a fun, "light" RPG which boasts gorgeous graphics (in VGA) that reflects the passage of time, cool weapons, and a decent plot that could have been better integrated into the vast gameworld.

would love to see the SNES version. I love the soundtrack and layout.

I rented this game for the SNES back in like 1993 or something. This game was so much fun! I remember the dragons coming down and zapping us do death and yes, that dog head zapping lasers out its eyes! So much fun!

Wow, I don't understand how to play this game at all, seems likes you just stand there and get owned by random enemies... I hope there's a youtube tutorial...

the "french" version of the game on your site is actually the international (european) version and can be played in french, english, italian, or german.

while this version only plays in up to 16 colors, it appears to have all the files and drivers to play in 256 color mode. My guess is something's wrong with the config.tat file which prevents it from loading the vga portion. I'm working on correcting the problem, but don't hold your breath...

Usually there are codes in the manual. google "replacement docs" or search for the manual

I'm playing this on dosbox and i've run into a bit of a snag. It's asking for codes and I can't find any sort of code sheet. Anyone know where to find those?

I remember playing this game for super nintendo I think, I remember resting at night and getting attacked by constellations, it was awesome.

I first saw this game on Game Grumps, for the NES, and of course when I saw this, I HAD to play.

Played this in a store for the first time. Got our adventurers geared up and went out to explore. We came to a crossroads and bumped into the little cross sticking out of the ground. A giant evil dog's head appeared out of the ground, shot us with its laser eyes and killed all of our characters. We bought it immediately. Sure, we were constantly getting killed and eaten by random giant monsters but it sure was fun!

As a kid I shied away from this game because I kept getting killed. Seems like some things never change.

One of the best games I've played. So much fun getting eaten by those sharks when you didn't know how to get past them.
