|Do you want to be a hero? If so, then there is a good job waiting for you!
Here is the little town of Spielburg, populated mostly by beer-drinking humans and
some centaurs who like working in the field. Spielburg is surrounded by forests and
mountains, where all kinds of weird creatures dwell: ogres, goblins, talking foxes,
stupid magicians, and others. Lately, Spielburg has been assaulted by brigands;
besides, the witch Baba Yaga is not to be trusted. The town has everything it needs,
even a Thieves Guild, except a strong, brave hero that would protect it. Are you
interested? "Hero's Quest" (renamed later to "Quest for Glory" for copyright reasons)
is an adventure/RPG hybrid. Visually very similar to other Sierra's "quest" titles
but the gameplay, beside the usual exploration, conversations with characters, and
solving an occasional puzzle, involves real-time combat and character development.
You can play the game as either a fighter, a mage, or a thief. The choice of class
will influence not only the combat, but also many other events in the game. You
develop your skills by fighting, practicing, climbing, throwing, etc. Many of those
activities are necessary to successfully complete the game. You interact with the
game world by typing commands or conversation topics.
