DOS - 1992
Description of The Summoning
The Summoningis one of Event Horizon's best games and among the most neglected RPGs ever.
Excellent VGA graphics in 3D isometric view (similar to the later Ultimas), great spellcasting system, devious puzzles & traps (although most are of the "find-a-key-to-unlock-this-door" and "step-on-the-right-pressure-plate" variety). This is not for hardcore RPGers, as it uses only the most basic statistics, and has a strong action-oriented combat.
Still, it's one of the best RPGs that deserve to be on every RPGer's shelf.

Great game, i discovered this by accident in a pile of games at my friends uncles house. He loaded it up and showed me how it was and i got addicted right away, i think i was 15 or something. That was back around the mid 90s. This is a great find from the truly old school early rpg gaming days. If you can just get past the dated graphics and find a way to enjoy them ( i personally think the game looks good ) and learn the controls (not hard) the game is definitely fun. Its long enough and involved enough that its worth playing. And its definitely overlooked, had it not been for that one day i probably never would have played and appreciated this great game.
