Death Gate is a great fantasy adventure based on best-selling novels by Margaret Weiss and Tracy Hickman. As young Haplo, member of the banished Patryn race, you are tasked with finding all pieces of the World Seal to avenge your people and free them.

While similar to other Legend graphical adventures, Death Gate broke new grounds with an ingenious spellcasting interface that is superbly integrated into the game engine, and required to solve many puzzles. The storyline is strong, although a little too simplistic given the rich fantasy world of the books. Death Gate is also notable for being the first Legend game to feature truly exceptional voice acting -- among the best of its kind. With excellent writing, challenging but not-too-difficult puzzles, and very high production values with respect to SVGA graphics and voice acting, Death Gate is one of Legend's finest and most underrated games. A must-have.
