Description of Legacy of The Ancients

A classic RPG from Electronic Arts, this game became an instant classic once it was released on the Commodore 64. One of the best "solo" RPG ever, everything in this game is flawlessly implemented, from the combat module down to the entertaining casino in towns. I daresay this is the best CGA RPG ever made :)

Too bad its sequel Legacy of Blacksilver was never converted to the PC, although its cousin Questron 2 was.

My Favourite RPG. I played and finished it several times on the C64. It was the first game I finished on my own without hints from my friends and it was also the first one I finished before my friends.

oh my! This was a great rpg for its time. Used to play it on the c64 but never could complete it.

Hey guys... this is incredible... huge fan of the C64 version of the game and played it back 30 years ago when it came out.

In any case, how do you play the C64 download? Do you need a special emulator? I saw one mentioned in the comments above, but not sure how to proceed. Thanks!

This was truly a great game, but sadly underrated even back in the day. I still find the entire "museum exhibit" concept and the way the game centered around finding gemstone coins to access more of the museum an amazing concept and would love to see something similar someday. And who knows? With the indie scene and crowdsourcing maybe we'll finally see a Legacy of the Ancients II someday....

Didn't the C64 version also run on the VIC-20 if you managed to get the eternal RAM carts up to 32MB, and that includes the vector graphics cart?
