I love you for making this set. Please find more OG Dungeon Crawler gems. I seem to remember (as a kid) the one I owned and enjoyed was called Might & Magic for NES. Played it for what seemed like an eternity one summer holiday :D

Thank you making the set! I've never tried the NES version before! It was a nightmare going through those new floors "redesigns" exclusive to this version but all went well at the end! Looking forward to play KoD!

Apparently there is a bug in this port that makes armor upgrades and AC buff spells useless..? If true, something to keep in mind while playing this version.

Anyone have any tips for the Happy Birthday achievement? No matter how many times I stay at the Inn, my characters don't seem to age.
starlite 29 Jan 2024 18:28
@tomservo6 I think you might only age if your character heals at the inn. Try using a character with a high max HP and a low current HP (so they can heal a lot) and sleep on the cot until you're fully healed. After doing that a few times, you'll definitely age up
