Realms of Chaos is an
exciting side-scrolling platform game with an innovative mix of action, adventure,
mysticism, and role-playing that's never been seen in this style of game. Set in the
fantastic world of Mysteria, Realms of Chaos is the first of many adventures of Endrick
and Elandra, a brother and sister duo who find themselves on a journey to save the many
realms of Mysteria, from a dark, evil shadow that has engulfed their world, and has turned
all of the inhabitants into fierce enemies.
The story of the darkness is revealed as you finish each of the three game chapters. Each
chapter, or episode, has three unique realms--each realm has new enemies, new graphics,
new traps and new challenges. In all, 26 killer levels!
FEATURES & INNOVATIONS
Play as two different characters: A male warrior with a devastating sword attack and extra
stamina, and a female sorceress with a long range fireball attack and great leaping
ability. At any point in the game you can press a key to switch between characters! It's
up to you to decide which character is best to handle each challenge.
Vibrant, realistic VGA graphics. (Tons and tons of graphics that actually take you to new
worlds. You'll want to see what's behind every corner--even if it means running into
things that want to kill you!)
High speed 360 degree scrolling playfield viewed at a tilted perspective (gives the game a
depth of view that's missing in games like Jazz Jackrabbit).
Many unique and fantastic game puzzles that are not rehashes of what you've seen in other
Some areas concentrate on fighting and action, while others concentrate on exploration and
discovery. This makes for fresh, exciting, and new challenges on every level.
As part of the game's realism there's a lot of blood that flies. But, for younger players,
we've included a blood toggle so that the game is suitable for all age groups. Parents can
password protect this option so that children cannot turn it back on.
Among all the amazing enemies you'll encounter, you'll also face four incredible bosses,
plus one final super boss!
Midi-music and digital sound effects by Bobby Prince, known for his award winning work in
Wolfenstein 3-D, DOOM I & II, and Duke Nukem 3D. (Special ambient sound effects make
the game seem alive!)
For Paganitzu fans, there are plenty of inside references to this game, which was the
author's first Apogee game (in 1991).
Tons of secrets, bonus and hidden areas to find, making the game highly repayable over and
Five difficulty levels, from "Super Easy" to "Psycho Warrior." The
higher secret levels actually change the game, by introducing new hazards (e.g. poison)
and new challenges (e.g. auto-scrolling playfields)--a PC gaming first!
Save and restore WITHIN the game levels (save anywhere) -- plus convenient quick
The excitement in Realms of Chaos is never knowing what
you'll find next. And each difficulty level adds new challenges to the game rather than
simply making enemies harder to kill. Playing the game in Psycho mode is a different game
than playing in Normal mode.
