problem with the game since I have Windows 10 it does not open (no more working on Windows 10) * * * * since last update of Windows 10 plus no compatibility problem!! Super basic game!

More of a nostalgia thing. For those who knew it and liked it great. The Steam version works great with something more funny but quite acceptable German Synchro-translation (Objects and Opponents remain English).

Game tested in 2017. To make it very short, I could have more enjoyed this game if I had not passed beforehand by torchlight, who shares some mechanics (the fart with his inventory, the bars of experience and reputation,...)

Seeing this game on steam made me nostalgic, I had played it a long time ago and to have it refinished, I can assure you that it has not lost its charm; Despite his childish play a little repetitive in the long (which I concede, can not please everyone), it remains very pleasant to play:). I recommend it to all fans of "action/Dungeon-RPG";)

A Super Role-playing Game for the small Purse. The Controls are easy and easy to understand, as well as the Game is very clearly structured. So very suitable for Newcomers and Savings Foxes. Great plus to Steam, the Company that originally released The Game, now has permanent Problems with the Activity Key. But at Steam, it all goes without any Problems. Small note, the Game is also in German, unfortunately this is indicated on the Shop page flasch.

As a Fan of Torchlight and Torchlight 2, I was of course delighted to finally get the Predecessor in my absolute Paws. And I have to say. It was worth it. While this Game is amazingly jerking in a few Places, it doesn't break off from the Fun! For Pencil, the City in Fate is much larger than in the Successor Torchlight and there are more Quest Generators. The Skillsystem is also different, you can-Elder Scroll's moderate abilities such as Schertkampf, Shield And various Magic Skillen Skills. In Addition, there are a Lot of Spells that can be used quickly and efficiently thanks to Hotkey-. Otherwise it's almost like Torchlight, so you're quick into it as a Veteran. Interestingly, the Graphics appeal to me even more than with Torchlight, obwoh only presupposes DX 8! All in all, a "Must have!." The Game is also in German, with the Names of Items and Boxes unfortunately not translated. But if you grew up-like I did-with the Games of the 80s, you will look over it generously, damls you could be happy if the Instructions were in German! So: Access and squeeze the few Mosquitoes, you don't make a Mistake!
