You play as an unnamed wizard trying to rescue your mentor, Mordamir from a castles labyrinth dungeon.
This was a game that I got in a box full of games given to me by my neighbor Jimmy. There were about 35 games in that box with some doubles that I used to trade for other games with my friends. This was about 19 years ago as I just bought my PlayStation 2 on it's release day. I popped in "The Immortal" because I had this game on the NES as well.
The game is like a "Remaster" from the NES to the Genesis. The graphics are better as well as the sound and gameplay. The Genesis version adds blood and other things that the NES didn't allow yet it doesn't make the game any better. The Immortal is still an illogical trial and error game that is highly frustrating with hair pulling difficulty.
You will die over and over and type and retype passwords every single minute. Just when you think you're safe you die. Walls, hidden floor, hidden monsters, using wrong items and very perplexing combat will constantly kill you. As soon as you think you know the route boom you die. Think you can beat that enemy think again.
I'm pretty sure the game could seem good to people who like to pull their hair, smack their knees or even throw their controller yet I do not think so. To much frustration and not enough pat yourself on the back moments lead to this games demise.
