The Screaming Skull
4 December 2011
Excerpt: Do the audiences of witty, dialogue-driven RPGs and devourers of dungeon crawlers overlap much? It seems an odd combination to make, but Rampant Games has delivered Frayed Knights: The Skull of Smakh-Daon , which succeeds in the aim of administering a more humorous version of something that could otherwise appeal to lovers of The Dark Spire .
Excerpt: Some look back on such classic games as Dungeon Master , Eye of the Beholder , and Might and Magic: World of Xeen and lament, "They don't make games like this anymore." That's not true. The first-person party-driven dungeon crawler may no longer dominate the role-playing-game market, but small developers are still making them.
Pros: Fun throwback to old first-person dungeon crawlers, Party dialogue and spell names provide laughs, Drama star system drives you to play honestly
Cons: Poor user interfaces make casting spells and using items tiresome, Too many bugs, Plot isn't all that interesting, Hard-to-use menus and user interface
