I almost forgot the existence of this game. Even though I never finnished it (if I remember correctly I got also bored right at the beginning because of the maze).
Nevertheless it's a nice addition to Abandonia.

Oh and Congratz Sebas!

I remember reading a review somewhere saying that this game is considered as "Bloodwych with better graphics." Graphics are certainly not bad, especially compared to Bloodwych (DOS version, that is).

I actually downloaded this game from the Canine Sister (HOTU ) many months ago, but did not really play it as I recall it gave me motion sickness, just like Menzoberranzan did (well, technically Menzo does give a choice between free/fluid movement and tile-based/step-by-step movement, but still...). I also could not find a walkthrough on this game with google (nowadays as I have less gaming time and more of real life to face, I don't usually play a game without walkthrough).

Another Eye of the Beholder clone. This type of game is always good. Dungeon crawls are always fun and you might say a FPS without the FPS Engine. Every good game has its wanna- bes and remember thatmimicry is the highest form of flattery.

This game was also released by someone other than Psygnosis. I remember having a version that was branded by another company but I do not remember who.

HOTU has the manual but I too would like to know if anyone has seen a cluebook or walkthrough. Have't played it yet, just collecting right now.

The only thing I was able to find about this game is a review in one of the old Gamebyte Magazines for Dos that I have a collection of, Issue 21, together with the review supplied screenshots of Hexx that show a completely different context / control panel with the four party members than shown on the screenshots of the game here on Abandonia. The review is still of the version of Hexx made by Psygnosis though, must be an earlier version of the game...

a month ago, I purchased this from eBay (in excellent condition!) great box / manual and a poster inside... but I cannot say I like it too much... not even close to eob/uw's ...
it has all over the place psygnosis logos (and the art it uses on the box is the well known psygnosis style...)
