Game Review

Betrayal at Krondor is an adventure RPG game developed and published by Dynamix in 1993 for DOS. It was later ported to Windows in 2010.

Betrayal at Krondor is inspired by and based on the Riftwar novels written by Raymond E. Feist, who had a hand in the story and script for the game as well.

Taking place in the Riftwar universe, you must betray your own people to stop the leader of the Moredhel army from invading Krondor. Don’t worry, you won’t be on your own. You will get some help from a few of allies who can join your party. There are several races featured in the game, but they are primarily NPCs. You will only have access to 2 races for your party: Moredhel and Human. You will also only have 2 classes to choose from: Fighter and Magician. Each class will, of course, have its own strengths and weaknesses and will help you flesh out a strategy. Every playable character also has their own attributes and skills that will make them useful in different situations.

While traveling you can explore, plunder dungeons, collect items, and possibly find wordlock chests that require you to solve a riddle to open them. Though the game features a relatively open exploration scheme, certain things must be done or collected in order to continue the actual story. Much of the game is played from a first person perspective, but it changes while either in combat or viewing the map. During combat you will take part in a third person turn-based battle.

Bringing you a classic RPG experience, Betrayal at Krondor will draw you in with a deep and engaging storyline. It’s an adventurer must.

The game was released as freeware by Sierra. The Windows version is available on GOG.
