Leygref's Castle is a DOS remake of the classic BASIC game Wizard's Castle.
The gameplay is very similar to the original: Explore a castle (represented as an 8x8x8 cube), kill the monsters and grab the treasures to find a powerful item. You do this in a turn-based manner by entering short text commands. Each room of the castle may contain a monster (which will probably result in a simple turn-based combat), a vendor where you can buy and sell things, or special items with random effects (books, magic pools and chests). If you're intelligent enough, you can also cast spells.
Small extensions have been made, for example, there are two additional classes at character generation and more monsters. The game also boasts much nicer text graphics and makes the gameplay more intuitive and appealing -- for example, the room contents are not indicated by just one letter like "D", but instead but short words.
The gameplay may seem simplistic at the beginning, but winning the game involves using right strategies which monsters to attack, when to cast spells and the right use of the items and special places.
Leygref's Castle is a fun, unassuming Roguelike RPG that deserves to be much better known. In this game, you will explore one of the largest gaming worlds in history - a castle with 512 rooms. But to make things easier, the castle is structured as a perfect cube, with 8 by 8 rooms on each of its 8 floors.
Unlike most other Roguelikes, the gameplay in Leygref's Castle is very easy to get into. After selecting your stats and initial equipment, you will be free to explore the castle. Every time you enter a room, you will encounter either a monster, an item, or a merchant. If you like the original Rogue, you will likely find this game a charming little gem that offers simplified gameplay that actually works - although in my opinion quite impossible to beat :) Recommended, especially to anyone who likes to play a quick and dirty Roguelike once in a while.
