The game is set in a haunted castle and players have to explore the rooms on each of the 5 floors within the castle in search of a golden key. The trouble is, the key has been split up into 3 parts.
Each room is filled with suitably scary enemies such as witches, monks and flying pumpkins, all of which could be dealt with by shooting them - think robotron but far, far less frantic.
The game was revolutionary because it allowed players to choose different characters to play as; a wizard, a knight or a serf, each of which affect the route you take and the weapon you use.
At the time of its release it received a great deal of praise from the gaming press.
