This game, the first in a long-awaited series based on the Dungeon and Dragon computer titles, is a must for fantasy adventure fans everywhere.

Advanced Dungeons and Dragons: Heroes of the Lance is based on Dragon Lance book and Dragons of Autumn Twilight.

You control eight heroes descending into ruined city of Xak Tsaroth, where you must face the ancient dragon Khisanth and retrieve the relic, Disks of Mishakal.

Each character has different types of attacks and spells making them more suited to fighting different enemies.

Advanced Dungeons and Dragons: Heroes of the Lance is a RPG style game. The gameplay consists of horizontal fighting with a maze like map using doors to change the view. You can using one character at a time, but you can switch between them at any time. Battles take place in real time from a side-view perspective.

The game is based on Dragonlance book "Dragons of Autumn Twilight". Your aim is to get through the ancient city of Xak Tsaroth and defeat Khisanth the Dragon to receive Disks of Mishakal. You can switch between one of eight characters: Caramon Majere the warrior and his brother Raistlin Majere the mage, Tasslehoff Burrfoot the rogue, Flint Fireforge the dwarf, princess Goldmoon, her betrothed Riverwind, Sturm Brightblade the knight and Tanis Half-Elven - the "natural leader" of the team.

This RPG game was published in 1990 by Strategic Simulations. Each character has it's own techniques and spells. However, most part of game looks like usual horizontal-scrolling fighting. The "Heroes of the Lance" issue was followed by three more A&D games: "Dragon Strike", "Pool of Radiance" and "Hillsfar".
