Game Review

Black Crypt is a fantasy single-player role-playing game by Raven Software, published by Electronic Arts. It was released in 1992. It was originally conceived of as a pen and paper roleplaying game by Brian Raffel and Steve Raffel. The game was originally released for Amiga, but since then the first two levels have been released as freeware.

The player creates four heroes. There are four classes these heroes may have, fighter, cleric, magic user, and druid. These four heroes travel through the twenty-eight levels of the “Tomb of the Four Heroes”. Hidden in the Black Crypt is the evil Estoroth Paingiver, a powerful cleric. He was banished to the crypt for committing unspeakable acts, but is now trying to break out.

This game is one of the best early RPGs. The atmosphere is incredible. You can hear the creatures sneaking up behind you. The graphics were fairly good for the time, it was one of the few games using the Extra Half-Bright graphics mode (EHB) of the Commodore Amiga to display 64 simultaneous colors on screen.
