    For those who remember the 16bit era of gaming, there's a Port/Remake of one of the first isometric action RPGs, The Immortal over on Steam. However, even though it's on sale, it's even cheaper on GOG by about half. Since I can't find a trailer quickly, there's this:


    • 3-D Adventure like you've never seen!
    • Fully animated creatures and deaths - watch out or you'll be spiked, slimed, or eaten by giant worms.
    • Fight trolls, spiders, and goblins in live action battles.
    • Discover the powerful secrets of arcane objects. Use them correctly or perish.
    • Unleash magical powers to fly, shrink, and change form.
    • Eight levels of challenging puzzles to solve and over 50 chambers to explore.

    I remember this game when it came out. I snagged it and it was probably one of the more frustratingly difficult games when I was a kid. Now the frustration can be yours!

    I beat this on the Sega Genesis back when the cartridge cost like $90. I remember thinking it was really short and bad, with the main point of interest being the violent death animations.
    I think I beat it the same day I bought it.

    This game played like an evil D&D dungeonmaster who enjoys killing the players. All you do in this game is memorize the location of various unseen threats (either off-screen or hidden beneath the floor) and avoid them. It's about as fun as Simon Says, maybe with better pixels.

    I was just watching a comparison of the Mega Drive and NES versions of this game last night after getting a nostalgia craving. Great game, god knows how I managed to beat it back in the day though. lol.

    Used to love this back in t'day. Played it for around 20min the other day on Kega, and I'm actually really looking forward to playing it properly.

    Never finished it originally, and it was a slag of a cunter of a game with difficulty, but the theme is so mint I cannot resist.

    Didn't they remake Imogen too?.....

    AVGN usually hypes up the difficulty of these games too high. Besides Battletoads, a couple PC ports and a few shmups, nothing on nes is that hard.

    Very frustrating when young indeed, that was one of the most impressive game , with very good animation, i still remember the wizard avoiding death in a pit by using his staff to stop his fall.
