World of legends is a fairly extensive text rpg written over the space of six months. The story begins with the Evil rune king, destroying your village and generally causing havoc. it's up to you to go from niophyte to experienced adventurer, through 15 massive quests, to take him out and restore piece.
Even though it was written in 2006, the game' runs in a Dos style console window, and uses a dos style system of entering numeric commands from menues, though note that this design might create problems on post xp windows despite this not being a Dos game.
A large amount of work has gone into creating a complex and quirky game with several character classes from the hard hitting warrior and scout to the bow wielding ranger, the jack of all trades thief and of course the powerful mage, all with their own weapons, skills and spells. The game also contains weapon and potion crafting, special abilities and even status effects such as poison and cursing.
World of legends also features a range of quirky little asides, different mechanics and minigames from commanding of an army, to casino games, to mazes.
a number of varied locations opening across the game world going from the standard fantasy grasslands and planes to such places as rain forests, the underworld, and even the heavens make for an incredibly epic feeling to the game.
Despite the sometimes rather haphazard writing, the huge range of options insure that there's always something new to do, and litle touches of humour, ---- such as being able to exact vengence upon the game's creator add some spice to the action.
Sinse the game runs in a console window, some direct screen review or use of a virtual curser is recommended as the best way of playing, though the quick menue system of number commands insure that the game play is very smooth and you spend more time navigating the fantasy kingdom, than navigating the screen.
Though the developer's own original webpage and hosting for the game have long since disappeared from the internet, hosting is provided curtacy of the audiogames archive site.
