Game

Master of Magic

A top-down dungeon crawler released for Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum.

Overview

The protagonist of this game is a young man who is teleported into a maze full of creepy denizens and easy ways to die and the only way out is to find a magical amulet. The screen is divided into three sections:

  • The upper left section of the screen displays an overhead map.
  • The upper right features a scroll that tells the player what is going on in the game world, in particular during fight.
  • The lower part of the screen shows enemies and items that are in proximity to the hero.
