released in 1991

A great PC version of the equally underrated board game of the same name from Games Workshop, Hero Quest is an isometric tabletop strategy/RPG game that simplifies RPG statistics without simplifying gameplay.

As in the board game, up to 5 players can play the game as wizard, elf, barbarian or dwarf in a quest to banish the evil wizard. Secret doors, traps and treasure abound in this turn-based, mission-based game. Good game in every respect and severely underrated.

Those who like this game should also try Space Crusade another Games Workshop boardgame conversion based on the much-improved version of the game engine.

HeroQuest has an addon available: HeroQuest: Return of the Witch Lord, don't miss it!
