Shadow Quest sticks to its old-school RPG roots, allowing you to create your own avatar as you explore a world full of innumerable castles, caves, and mysterious creatures. As you travel, you'll encounter rulers who will entrust you with quests to rid the lands of evil. The caves are full of buried treasures and magical items. On your journey, you will also encounter several NPCs, some friendly, while others must be enslaved.
