Description of Tower of Souls

Tower of Souls is an uninspired Diablo-style isometric RPG, released as shareware years before Westwood released that blockbuster action/RPG that popularized the genre.

The Amiga version of Tower of Souls was better known than this PC port, and received some recognition in gaming publications as one of the first isometric action RPGs for that platform. Although cross-genre, isometric games were introduced years earlier by pioneers such as Ultimate Play the Game (Knight Lore, Sabre Wulf) and Bitmap Brothers (Cadaver games), Tower of Souls has many elements that are quite unique and new to the RPG genre, including an arcade-style lockpicking interface (although the one in Hillsfar was far more elegant) for both traditional locks and combination locks. The game offers a huge dungeon to explore, dozens of spells, herbs, and weapons.

If you like Diablo, you will likely find Tower of Souls to be a better-than-average action-style hack 'n slash that will keep you interested for at least a few hours.

It seems the 5MB MSDOS version here is a CD rip, because it doesn't have any music.
I have never seen an MSDOS floppy version of this game.

Someone combined the English rip version with a German CD image for CD audio.

If someone just wants the German version ("Der Seelenturm") it is also available in the following compilation:

I can't even fathom how far up his own ass the old HOTUD reviewer's head must have been sometimes. The ignorant takes on games from playing them improperly are one thing, but factually incorrect stuff like saying that Diablo was a Westwood game? Come on. Why is trash like that even reprinted on this site?
