Cult Video Game Essentials- Advanced Dungeons & Dragons: Heroes of the Lance

Released in January 1988, Advanced Dungeons & Dragons: Heroes of the Lance was a video game based on the first Dragonlance campaign module for the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, Dragons of Despair, and the first Dragonlance novel Dragons of Autumn Twilight. It follows the journey of eight heroes through the ruined city of Xak Tsaroth, where they must face the ancient dragon Khisanth and retrieve the relic, the Disks of Mishakal.

The game was a side-scroller that used actual Dungeons & Dragons character statistics as they were in their official  rule books. Eight heroes from the Dragonlance novels series must be assembled for the quest but are only visible on the screen one at a time- basically each character is 1 life to play in the game. Many complained that this removed the main strategies that Dungeons & Dragons role-playing games were known for.
