Dungeons & Dragons-Collection
Fans of Capcom titles often forget that the company also developed two Dungeons & Dragons titles for a TSR license: Tower of Doom and its sequel Storm Over Mystaria. Their latest Saturn release appropriately named The Dungeons & Dragons Collection features both of these classics bundled into one giant adventure.
These titles feature sidescrolling levels with a Final Fight-style engine and multiple player-selected paths. Players also have the opportunity to have a friend help them out with Two-player Simultaneous Cooperative Mode.
These titles allows selection of four different characters: fighter, dwarf, cleric and the only female character-an elf. Each character has his/her own special abilities that include the use of magic true to the D&D RPG world, such as the clerics refusal to even touch a weapon with a sharp edge. Ranged-projectile weapons common to all characters also exist in the game; these include daggers, hammers, arrows and flaming flasks of oil. These items can be found in the levels or bought from various dealers who appear to your character after each stage. Also important to your character's survival are healing potions that restore some of your life bar in combat. To purchase these needed items, you use treasure found in the levels. These bonuses come in many forms and can be picked up off the ground by using the Attack button while standing over the desired item. Additional items, such as special boots and gauntlets, can also be found in treasure chests while adventuring. These items are automatically used once found and give your character speed or strength bonuses.
There are also spells characters can use to help themselves and hurt their enemies. These spells again reflect the class of character using them.
Everything considered, the D&D collection is a good translation of the original with very few changes to both the engine and the outside appearance.
As mentioned earlier, after each stage there are shops where you can use the money you found in the level on new items to help you through the next part of the adventure. Daggers and arrows have a level trajectory and cross the whole screen quickly.
Throwing hammers arc upward and only reach out a short distance, but they can hit multiple enemies. Flaming flask oil has a short range, but fire damage really socks it to your enemies. The last item you can purchase is the healing potion that can be used in combat to relieve the damage your character has taken during battle.
