If you’ve ever wanted to go on a tale of adventure with companions and an attempt to stop the great witches to free a kingdom, this game is your choice for the taking. As a member of the Royal Guard, a freshly inducted member that is, you are part of the magic keepers of the king. As you begin, you’ll discover corruption within the Royal Guard as the witches have now tainted them to their needs. As you begin your adventure, your chance is to attempt to overthrow the witches curse that has enslaved the kingdom while taking on giants, river spirits, dragons and more.
For those wondering about the play style, the game is one that is open-ended in its adventure, one that allows players to explore whatever direction they wish and even choosing the progress to the storyline at, which they prefer. Luckily quests aren’t to feel like errand boy quests, but instead offer players a feel of accomplishment once completed. As players get their story underway, the choice is theirs between good, bad, and evil to influence a players ending. Driven like any, the game takes the familiar turn of graphical prowess and gameplay mechanics of titles like The Legend of Zelda, Gauntlet, and elements from the famed The Elder Scrolls Franchise.
Along with the inspiration from classic books and stories the games style was inspired by old school Arcade games that I would play as a kid at Pizza Hut and the local bowling Alley.
