Legend of the Silver Talisman game description
As the power-hungry mages split into the rivaling Council of Light and the League of Darkness, a war broke out, lasting many generations. Chaos was brought unto the land as the Talisman was stolen. Retrieve it from the clutches of evil to restore order.
Legend of the Silver Talisman is an action game (with light RPG mechanics) inspired by coin-operated machine hit Gauntlet, with visuals similar to Ultima 6. Two players (the other character goes under computer control in single player mode) compete over items and power-ups to be found in enemy infested dungeon mazes: swords, wands, shields, helmets, armor, scrolls and potions. Combat is done by simply running into the creature/player.
The game is strongly reminiscent of Ultima VI in looks, with colorful and attractive tile-based VGA graphics. The gameplay is straightforward: you control your hero from the top-down perspective as he moves around the worlds, attacking monsters in real-time, or running away from them as the case may be. You can speed up or slow down the game clock, collect and use potions, cast spells, equip magical weapons, and do all the things a typical RPG allows. What makes LTST unique, however, is the split-screen two-player mode that lets you play with another player at all times (the second player can be either computer- or human-controlled). Both players can meet up in the same area and fight one another, if you are not in the mood to co-operate. You can even steal from the second player if you are careful enough. This makes LTST a lot like Gauntlet, but with more traditional RPG trappings and much bigger areas to explore.
The first episode (out of 3) was released as shareware. From 2003 the full game is available as freeware.
