Ten years ago, WIZARDRY set the standards in Fantasy Role-Playing (FRP). Now after two million copies have been sold and dozens of awards have been won, Bane of the Cosmic Forge raises and redefines those standards. This new WIZARDRY, the truest simulation ever of Fantasy Role Playing, will push your computer, your mind, and your sense of adventure to their very limits. Only through the power of the latest computer technology could the full dimensions of this new genre in FRP be possible.
This is FRP the way you wanted it to be.
Prepare yourself. Take with you six companions - choose wisely, for having chosen, your fate is in their hands. Enter the ancient castle to retrieve the Cosmic Forge, a magical pen whose writings caused the river of time itself to change course. You will find treasure, armor, and magic items to advance your quest; meet wizened and cryptic dwellers who hold secrets that must be unearthed; and solve the riddles and puzzles that abound.
But beware- you and your party will encounter countless dangers, hazards, and creatures of dazzling form to block your way. Only through your magic and skills, ever growing as you progress, can they be vanquished.
And the story, so rich in mythology and legend, weaves a web of intrigue so complex that only you, with patience and travail can unravel.
Let the computer roll the dice, consult the charts and apply the rules. From the 400 items of armor and weaponry researched for authenticity to the realistic combat structure, incorporating Primary and Secondary attack, this reproduction of true FRP within the computer environment will make all other attempts obsolete.
The adventure is as real as the pleasure.

Wizardry 6: Bane of the Cosmic Forge reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Spain
Rating: I'm Not done:( Too hardcore for my:). MS-DOS Game, very very old, extremely difficult (especially if you create your adventurers without knowing very well that you do) and where it is ESSENTIAL to ller the manual to know what happens. If I only had a map to know where I went, it might not have been so uphill.

If you are undeterred by the somewhat old Graphics, you will receive RPG fare with this Game and also the Successor Wizardry VII-Crusaders of the Dark Savant. The Game is not easy and without a Complete Solution it is quite a Challenge, as you have to ask certain NPC for Keywords to Get further. But If you talk a lot with the NPC in general and ask them about everything that runs your Way, you should come up with it. Alternatively, you can use the Complete Solution and even then the Game offers over 50h Game Fun. A proper Pearl. Unfortunately, this is hardly produced today.

Wizardry 6 has enough meat on the bones to entertain people who like to RPGs and read manuals (I for example), however, it has 2 fatal flaws: Just a save slot in a game where it's easy to find yourself in a dead end and the fact that the J Then has 4 finals and they're all slack. I Recommend the editor Cosmic Forge that includes in one place fixes for the most infamous bugs and the MoD Automap that integrates a map to the game, unless you enjoy doing one by hand with pencil and paper, each one his own. The Steam version comes ready with DosBox, the manual and the Strategic Guide, plus another bonus content, which is great considering the little support they receive in general games so old on this platform.

A great Dungeon Crawler. In 1990 he listened to the best there was on the RPG Market. And even Today it is still Fun to immerse yourself in the World of Wizardry. Part 6 is the First Part of a Trllogy where you can take your Party with you until Part 8. As you know it from Pearls such as the North Country Trilogy or Eye of the Beholder. There are plenty of Spells and Combat Skills to use. Once you have Enemy Contact in the Real-time World, a Undeni-based Fight launches. Levelling and experimenting around with changing the Character Classes is a Lot of Fun and motivates for a very long Time. The Game itself also has a huge World to explore. The Story is very well written and turned off. But I don't want to spoil here. You should experience This for yourself. It should be said that on Windows 7 and Windows 10 the Game runs with Me without any Problems via Steam.
