You start the game as a knight. As the levels progress, you acquire various other characters which play pivotal roles in your ability to get through each one alive.
In true Dungeons and Dragons style, you prep for each level by gearing up your character and purchasing the items you think you'll need.
Character selection is important as each mission has unique challenges, tends to be long, and is usually impossible to save once in progress--which brings us to the game's only major downfall.
Unless you're a patient and skilled gamer, you're likely to get frustrated by not being able to get past difficult levels within one or two attempts.
Many levels need to be approached half a dozen times or more, using different character and equipment combinations. Personally, we enjoyed that challenge, though this might not be true for everyone. --Sung Nicholas Kim
