Tower Of Druaga by Eazy Cheeze
Game:Tower of DruagaCompany:Namco
Type:AdventurePlayers:1 - 2

You are the great Knight (insert cheesy yet strangely appropriate name here). You have been summoned to the impossibly tall Tower of Druaga to do battle with monsters, slimeys, wizards, and general nuisances of all types. You are armed only with a sword and your trustee magical shield, with which you may deflect the spells which those nasty purple-robed wizards throw at you. Be careful starting on Floor 5; those nasty wizards pop up two and three at a time, and once they do show, you have but a split second to turn and show them your shield before their lightning gives you a much longer butt-crack; because one hit and it's all over for our beloved slow-walking Nameless One. Please be careful to keep that double-edged rod of steel in your scabbard when you turn to face the wizards; because a sword doesn't deflect a spell quite as sufficiently as a shield; besides, metal makes a good lightning rod and you're gonna get even MORE fried. And one more thing; you can find a pickaxe somewhere, but I haven't found a use for it; perhaps for hacking down walls?
This game is fun, like all other games supported by MAME. The graphics... eh, could be better, but hey, they get the job done. The game gets damn near impossible starting at the aforementioned Floor 5; and all because of those purple-robed spawns of Satan that fling their spells at you. Your character walks VERY slowly, but that adds to the challenge of the game. And if the bonus time and the secondary timer runs out, demons rush through the maze in an effort to drag your procrastinating soul down to the depths of Hell. So hurry the heck up; first, find the key. Then, make for the door as quickly as possible! Keep in mind that it takes about two seconds for you to draw your sword (how old IS this warrior? 50?) so don't go walking into a slimey until your sword is fully drawn.
Good luck on your quest through the interminable Tower of Druaga!
