Just like its predecessor, this is meant to be an introductory game for the RPG genre. You will once again meet the three brothers Julian, Phillip and Kevin. The biggest difference between the two games is the graphics. As you can see from the screenshots, the game uses pixel graphics. The designers have followed every rule regarding pixel art and they were all masters. The result is extraordinary.
As with so many RPG's you begin inside a city. Here you will walk into every house, steal everything that isn't nailed down and then sell it to the local pawnshop. With the money you receive you will buy better weapons and armor. (I always find RPG heroes to be kleptomaniacs... but none of the NPC's seems to mind. Maybe it is because they just saw you slay a dragon with a single blow of your warhammer. If you want to steal their pillows, pots and flowers, they are NOT going to stand in your way. I know I wouldn't... ) After you are finished with the theft, you venture outside the city walls, to kill yourself a Goblin, an Orc, a Troll... and so on. Only to loot them afterwards, and leave them to rot on the ground. Niiice.
The game is also filled with mini-quests, so try to talk to everyone you meet. There might be a fair maiden needing three young men to rescue her, an Ogre to kill, or apples to be collected... Some quests will also be written down in books and tomes, so read these as well. They may contain valuable clues.
This game scores highly in every aspect (except maybe on teaching you good social manners), it should be on every gamer's "to play" list.
After unzipping the "FTA2" folder from the archive, you can start the game by dragging "DOSBOX.bat" onto the DOSBox shortcut. The download includes the CD in an image file named "CD.iso". The script "DOSBOX.bat" is designed to mount it and start the game automatically.
