This is a remake of the game Sword of Fargoal, created by Jeff McCord in 1982.
Updated the depot with both the Win32 and OSX versions.
Final tweaks and testing, graphical updates, and the game is submitted to the www.remakes.org competition.
Complete rewrite. Complete new game. This time, we wrote it as entry to the remakes.org competition, and tried to make a remake of the original Sword of Fargoal by Jeff McCord, emulating it as faithful as possible.
Overall Rating: 8.0

- This is a remake of Fargoal. Fargoal is a Rogue like game, so expect rogue like gameplay - the dungeons are tough, get tougher and if you ever beat the dungeon you're one of a chosen few.
Games like these are what evolved into modern RPGs. And if you play it, you can learn a lot on game design. The game is complex, yet simple.
The update in graphics reanimated one of the all time classics - fargoal never looked so good, and it plays fantastic.
Download it, play it and try your best to beat it <b>...</b>
