Oh man this game is an amazing classic! I loved playing this when I was a kid. This is the game which Torchlight is based off of and I was wondering why it didn't get any love from Steam. The Dungeon in this game is endless and it's procedurally generated. (if I remember correctly, it's been a long time.) It is defently worth the money. It does support 1920x1080 resolution. I suggest not tab alting while starting the game, it seems to not like it.

Great ARPG. I have found memories of playing this in 2005 and I purchased it again on steam. It is the predecessor to Torchlight and Torchlight 2 and very similar. I actually like the spell system better in this game.

It had a problems on steam launch working on Win 7/8, but it has been fixed now and works perfectly. You can play in 1920 x 1080 resolution too.

Highly recommend this game.

I love this game so much! Always used to play it until my XP died and I forgot my login on WildTangent, great to see it finally on Steam. Regardless of whether you guys have played Fate or not, get it. Probably the best dungeon crawler out there (in my opinion) :D

Edit: I have seen many people saying that after around 3 hours, their game stops running for them. While I don't doubt that this is true, it has not happened for me and I've played nearly double that. I'm on Windows 7 Starter Edition (Came with my laptop). Hope this helped someone :)
