Ancient heroes is a text-based game programmed in QBasic. The game [i]is[/i] illustrated, but the user may turn off images at the start of the game. I was encouraged (by E.K.Virtanen on the Freebasic forum) to post newer versions here, and I've recently finished a large upgrade.
Here is a screenshot:
Download the game here, and run Heroes.exe: Ancient Heroes
Would it be worth making a purely ASCII version for upload? The game is of course much smaller without images.
