is an adventure RPG in which you enter the mysterious confines of the Crypt, and hopefully live to tell the tale. For centuries, would-be heroes have been pitting their skills against the Crypt of the Ancients. Controlled by the seemingly ageless arch-mage Alaric, it is believed to have been built over 5,000 years ago as a resting place for "The Ancients" -- Demigods who created the world. Now, the Crypt is a way to earn money, as Alaric offers a prize of 50,000 gold coins for anybody who enters the Crypt and lives to tell the tale.
You start the game with a base character who can specialize in either spellcasting or hand-to-hand combat. Enhance your character's attributes as you fight fearsome monsters and cast spectacular magic spells.
Ancient Evil features a fully interactive environment, a variety of different monsters with unique abilities and intellegence, dozens of different spells with unique real-time special effects, a mouse-driven interface with full keyboard shortcuts, and more.
