Having this game as a kid i remember the opening part very well but sadly never found my way out of the prison .
15 or so years later i make it out to an even dark wold then the prison.
that being said this game has a real dark stary to it. Filled with illness people (imps) dying everywhere.
You can choose to save the imps or massacer them. I went this good guy way and i am currently attempting to save them.
I have obviously not beaten this game yet so i cannot say to much but this is a diablo clone and a good one. I have heard divine divinity is better but i have not played that (yet) so again i cannot say
You are playing as a prisioner and you have a dark night as a companion. You are both under a spell where your souls are connected meaning If you die so does the other at least until the spell is broken. It puts a nice touch on gameplay and makes keeping both characters alive a top priority.
If you find your self in a tight spot and cannot heal fast enough there is an in game pause feature where you can still interact with items and your inventory character sheets ect. This puts a touch a stradegy in the game which is a nice thing.
Exploration is also a key factor in this game. You can actually move in game items like boxes and things on the world. somethings maybe hidden underneath like keys potions ect. Not a whole lot of games do this which makes finding things a bit harder that you may need. You can also make map notes to help you remember things you may forget later like entrances to areas, where someone is ect.
your weapons/armor have a durability status as well which adds an added effect of keeping things well kept.
I do plan on beating this game so if i have any more to add i will update this.

Definitly worth the $6 you get more then $6 worth of gameplay here.
As always this is an older game so keep in mind that it may have issues running on newer hardware I probebly will not get updated any time soon to run on newer hardware now. So far i have had no issues with it. Even though it warns me that i am not running on a 16 bit color mode :3 gees i feel old now just saying that ...
