This is it, the computer adaption of the best-selling board game, and it's great. You can play with up to four characters (players) - pick from Barbarian, Dwarf, Elf or Wizard. Each character has their own strengths and weaknesses, and most have magical powers.

The objective is to attempt the 14 different missions that take place in the dungeons of Morcar, the nastiest villain around (boo, hiss). The locations are displayed in isometric 3D and the characters controlled entirely by clicking a cursor over icons.

Throughout each mission, Morcar's evil henchthings attack without mercy, although the outcome of battle is decided by the fall of 'dice' rather than a thwack or three on the fire button.

Although there's always lots going on, don't expect an action-packed game - it's a proper animated graphics adventure. HeroQuest brings a great roleplaying tradition to your screen in early June.
