Wizard’s Doom

The very talented group, Uptown Productions Inc. developed a Action game in 1990 and interestingly called it Wizard's Doom. The game is so engaging that you will feel that “time flies”.

Wizard’s Doom description

Now completely forgotten, and extremely difficult puzzle arcade game with third person view, which is one of the versions of the game Soko-Ban. At the event there is a narrative rationale: your hero is imprisoned in the evil wizard's castle, and to get out, he needs to go through a number of levels, each of which need to find five keys that could open the door to the next.

The matter is complicated by the fact that the levels are cluttered with blocks and other objects, and they need to move in the correct order to advance to the door. The game is cruelly limited in time on completing each level (and here it should be considered that each level is harder than previous one) you are given exactly ninety-nine seconds...

Graphically, the game looks beautiful – dark and "poor" range in this case, perfectly captures the sinister atmosphere of the labyrinths of the castle of the sorcerer. This game could even be recommended to all fans of Soko-Ban, if not such a terrible temporary restriction (is it possible to pass the last level with him – question). However, for fans of the old games top of Wizard's Doom will surely be a real discovery.
