Game Description

You'll have to be shrewd and calculating to make your way through the Dark Spire! Each dungeon level of the tower hearkens back to the days of classic RPGs, challenging you to balance limited resources and capabilities. Build the perfect party to take on 80 different enemies. A voice will reach out to you, hinting at bizarre and fascinating realities which will leave you captivated by the story. Your choices will lead you down different paths - there are three possible endings for you to explore. Choose between two different methods of play, Classic Mode and Modern Mode. Classic Mode plays like an old-school RPG, while Modern Mode offers full 3D renderings and beautiful graphics.
