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.

Ah, what can I say about this RPG classic? The graphics are terrible, even by the standards of the time, their crude 16 colour EGA awfulness being quickly surpassed by the 256 colour majesty of Westwood's Eye of the Beholder, which followed but a year later.

Moreover, in defiance of even the most slender of expectations, variation in tileset is extremely limited - expect to see castles, dungeons, jungles and mines rendered in the same undulating grey brick, with faded tapestries, rooms filled with rotting furniture and the stygian underworld described in bright yellow text rather than sprites. While far more attention was lavished on the animations of your enemies you should be prepared to see the same yellowish-greyish-pinkish tones portray a multitude of demons, rats, amazons, dwarves and dragons.

The sound too is also terrible, with no music to speak of and only a limited selection of digital samples to relay the clash of steel on steel, ancient enchantments and the death of your foes. Lest that sound too exciting, be warned this is a game where your enemies die with a bang, literally expiring like popped balloons. Indeed, this was a game where the sound was quickly disabled and the mouse driver not loaded, cursor keys and imagination being far better accompaniments.

The plot is borderline nonsense, but expansive and remarkably mature, if such a thing can be said about story involving adultery, murder, madness, a pen that can re-write reality and a half naked she-devil.

And the game itself is unrelentingly punishing - this is the only game I can think of where your ability to access some of the more advanced classes, so temptingly described in the manual, at the beginning of the game rests entirely on a combination of luck and pig headedness. It is also one of the few games I've come across where a party of six stalwart heroes can be bested within seconds of starting their adventures by bats, rats and weeds, where they can fail to pick a lock and find that door locked for good. It is a game where if one of your characters dies of poison then you better hope you have some means of curing them in addition to resurrecting them, because if you don’t they’ll only die again.

However, if you've read this far and you consider yourself to be one of the few 'hardcore' CRPG gamers left out there, then you owe it to yourself to download this game and persevere. Nearly 25 years after its release, it stills holds the same dark attraction of stats and skills and spells and equipment and deep, turn-based, party-focused combat that for a few years in the mid-1990s seemed to represent the high point of aspirations for RPGs on the PC.

Once you’ve beaten the rats and bats and zombies and Zulus and taken on hell itself and battled through a climatic series of encounters against bosses that feel more like something from Streets of Rage 2. And once you’ve ditched the sticks and rags and found the Avenger and Maenad’s Lance and you’ve got a mage able to launch a tier six nuclear blast capable of incinerating waves of enemies at a time.

Then you’ll have found yourself neck deep in that borderline nonsense plot, playing a game that never fails to keep you on your toes, that rewards intelligence and strategy and speaks to the same desire for challenge and depth that until recently games had somehow managed to neglect. You’ll be hooked and you’ll want to take that band of misfits you’ve so carefully tended for the last 40 hours onward to Wizardry 7 and 8 and the fact that you’ll have to spend more than 100 hours to find out there’s no Wizardry 9 will be a bitter-sweet pill to swallow, but probably one you’ll swallow all the same.

Extremely dated, and the dice rolls can fail horribly. You stand a good chance of your party being horribly ill-suited for what you encounter.

Wait, I'm talking about my friday D&D sessions.

Seriously, though, that's basically what this is. Old-school pen-and-paper RPG style dungeon crawl. I've not played much, I must admit, but what I have played has made me want to play more.

I really like the character creation system (well, save the limited and ugly portraits). It's streamlined in all the right places, but leaves options open where it needs them.

I haven't even read the manual yet, and I'm having fun! (That was a hard thing to do with games back in the day)

Old RPG that shows its age.
Graphics that make you want to gourge your eyes out and sound that makes you wish you were dead.
... classic

I played Dungeon Master on the Amiga and though the graphics on that were superior, it has very similar gameplay.

I can overlook the ancient graphics but the game hangs for me at a specific point, reloading or starting again does not help this.

A cursory look reveals no workaround but to be honest I can't be bothered spending more time fixing than playing.

I had the original back in the day but I can't with any honesty recommend this to anyone. It freezes up often, not constantly, and the starting level has locked doors everywhere that you can't open....I mean everywhere its a mistake in the game and you can't do almost anything without reloading over and over and over.... You can pick a lock only a couple times and it becomes jammed then you cannot open it without a spell that you don't have yet. Really I'm not kidding I spent several hours trying to fight though this only to realize how stupid it really was. I leveled up to try and get some more points in skullduggery, lock picking, and I only got one point to spend. So I have to reload and level again. By now I think you get the idea. It's so clunky UIwise and the contant reloading is so stupid, trust me do something else with your time. Sometimes nostalgia turns out to be just a painful experience. :(

This is quite a good game, granted it is old school, real old school. I will caution if you want to play this and start out the Wizardry Trilogy...patience is something you must have! Either that be from making characters that can survive the first parts of the game(even well into the end of the game...) or constant reloading cause you don't want anyone to die from a fight(and thus lose 1 point of Vitality), which is a constant danger, Even with a little bad luck you are in a frustration.

With all that aside, I will say never has a game given it a real sense of victory for gaining a level or beating a group of foes...or even beating that game! Frankly you'll need the guide provided to make any regular progress, otherwise you'll lost for a long time.

So if you want a real old challenge...this is it! Let this be the start of a real adventure!
