The Wizards And The Warriors (Chronicles Of An Age Of Darkness)
Classic platform game for the Game Boy by Rare
Creator D.W. Bradley (Wizardry VI and Wizardry VII) slaved for four long years to bring fans his epic Wizards & Warriors, a decidedly old-school role-playing game in the mould of such classics as Wizardry, Might & Magic, and The Bard's Tale. Three production companies dropped the game during its convoluted development and Activision finally picked it up.
TV's first real foray into the realm of high fantasy was a truly ahead of its time combination of awesome adventure and witty self-awareness. Prolific sitcom writer Don Reo (The John Larroquette Show, Two and a Half Men) had a different vision in mind than previous grim and gritty attempts at the genre as seen in cinema - a vision underscored by the show's own opening titles, which frame the action as comic book panels.
