Description of Heroes of the Lance

Heroes of the Lance, Dragons of Flame, and Shadow Sorcerer are three releases in SSI's series of action/RPG games that are based on AD&D's "Dragonlance" fantasy world.

Unlike the "Gold Box" series, games in this series are basically side-scrolling platformers with a fantasy story. The party consists of the 8 "Heroes of the Lance", although you can control only one at a time with the option of switching between them whenever you want to. Since each hero has different types of attacks and spells, choosing the right hero to fight each enemy type is essential. Pleasant graphics despite a drab palette and interesting storyline (based mostly on novels/modules written by Weiss/Hickman) make this series worth a look by AD&D fans, although RPG fans may find the games too repetitive.

As I know the route, if I use only the hold person/sleep/charm/web spells on enemies, jump over the dwarfs, and using Sturm's quick down-strike to kill spiders, you can complete this game in 9m11s, no party deaths and recovering the disks.

Wasted youth? I've heard it said.

Wow, I forgot this game even existed! I've been trying to remember games from this era, and this one finally jogged my memory.
