Doomdark's Revenge

Doomdark's Revenge


by Mike Singleton

Game Boy Advance version by Richard Quirk

Controls

The keyboard controls were a bit odder for Doomdark than the first game. Rather than having all the location and character information on one screen, it was split across several. The focus was taken off the "Think" screen and placed on the interaction with the other characters in the game world. To this end, "Choose" (E) is usually the first screen that gets called up in a given situation.

I've stuck with the same basic set up as Lords, which I think was fairly playable with the GBA's d-pad and 6 buttons. Below is the list of controls, together with their 8-bit equivalents.

Press Start after the "loading screen" to start the game. You begin as Luxor the Moonprince standing at the Gate of Varenorn, having crossed through to the Icemark via the secret tunnels under the Frozen Wastes...
