The Dark Spire™ is a first-person RPG of exploration and character development in thepurest sense. Parties will be assembled, stats will be rolled, items, weapons and armorshall be equipped, and monsters will be slain. Some adventurers will choose to playusing the “modern” interface, its bold, stylized textures and palettes delivering a fresh,up-to-date adventure. Others may opt for the “classic” mode, guaranteed to evokeoverwhelming sensations of nostalgia as it perfectly recreates the style and simplicityof the fathers of the genre. Two different presentation modes, two different ways toexperience The Dark Spire!
The separate worlds on the two Nintendo DS screens have a cause and effect inter-relationship, and you choose when to switch between conquering the action-platform realm and mastering the increasingly challenging puzzle world. A wide variety of power-ups will help Hatsworth in both of these worlds. Complete puzzle combinations and defeat puzzle enemies in order to gain power ups, health, and energy to supercharge Hatsworth in his adventure.
