Throne of Darkness

Throne of Darkness
3.5

An action-packed Diablo clone presented in Asian garbs. Simply put, Throne of Darkness is Diablo soaked in Oriental spice and marketed towards the less picky twitch gamer.

Seal of Evil

Seal of Evil
3.5

Hack ‘n’ slash during the Zhou Dynasty. Seal of Evil is a Diablo-esque take on Ancient China which bears a stronger focus on pure action and also a fair bit of fantasy (magical spells, wise elders, skimpy mage girls, etc).

Anyone who has played MUDs (Multi-User Dungeon or Domain) before will instantly see similarities in Demise, as […]

I of the Dragon

I of the Dragon
3.5

I of the Dragon is a 3D action role-playing game where you play as a dragon instead of a conventional character. Flying dragons is something you don’t usually see in games (Drakan: Order of the Flame is an exception), so immediately we’re off to a novel premise. Alas, I of the Dragon is very much […]
