I couldn't have said it better
I love this game as well and it's probably one of the best we discussed on this site so far...
It's a great mix between action, sidescroller and role playing game. You can choose from various characters in the beginning of the game (gets more important during later levels) and have the opportunity to upgrade these characters by buying new amor, weapons and amulets.
You can also learn a great variety of spells which you can use during fights. Sometimes it's really hard to find the right spell combination to win a hard fight and you will die several times before you succeed. But you don't have to worry; there are several savepoints and you don't have to start from the beginning after dying.
Graphics are fine (even if you can not play in fullscreen mode) and the music and sounds are atmospheric and won't get on your nerves after a while (I would be glad if I could say this from every freeware game). The story is interesting enough to keep you playing for several hours. (copy from my vote in the game hunters forum)
I nearly completed world three by now (had to spend most of my freetime last week on that) and it's really hard by now). I tried several times to kill the last opponent but fail every time. So I think I have to change my strategy...
So please hear what your admin said and start playing this game! You won't regret it.
