An excellent remake of a classic Vic 20 and Commodore 64 roguelike. Much simpler than Rogue or Nethack but it has an elegant charm to it. Check it out here.

Sword of Fargoal is a dungeon adventure game published in 1983 through a Silicon Valley game company called “Epyx,” famous for pioneering adventure games such as “Temple of Apshai” and others. A newly released computer called the Commodore 64, which boasted a whopping 64K of RAM, changed everything for computer gaming history … and so the story began!

Your Quest Begins!

The misty powers of magic have settled over the Great Forest lands, twisting, swirling into every nook of the village of Ferrin. Evil spells wisp about like fog, draining courage and trust from the hearts of men.

Good magics have vanished, and no longer are there brave warriors who wield weapons of steel against the land’s enemies. The Protectorate Sword is gone!
