Hero needs to save a friend whose soul is imprisoned inside Vradark’s orb. The Necromancer is not defeated and full of strength, was able to swap places with him, occupying Hero’s friend’s body. He decides to return to the place where it all began, to the ancient, dank tombs, to meet Vradark face to face, to defeat him and to carry out the soul swap to free his captive!
About the Game
“Vradark’s Revenge” is a fantasy game in the Action RPG genre. The game has several levels, each one inhabited by a different evil Demon. The player plays as a Wizard, the goal of the player in each level is to find the Demon, at the same time destroying all sorts of magical evil things and boosting his abilities, and in the final battle to destroy the main Demon. Repeating this action in each subsequent level, the player will eventually reach the Vradark – the main villain.
By killing evil spirits in the process, the player also earns money which they can spend in the magic shops which are found in each level.
If the player character runs out of health points, he dies and is revived at the beginning of the current level, losing equipment and money. If, however, the player dies in battle against one of the bosses, they have a chance to fight the boss again. But to do so, he must win in a special minigame.
Interface and Controls

The mini-map (which can be opened with the M key) is initially empty, but as the player completes a level, new locations open up on the map.
