Mizar’s Out Of The Shadows is a brilliant, early “prototype” RPG on the humble ZX Spectrum.
If you’re willing to learn how to play the game properly, and take some time to explore a few areas, it will open up into something quite special for you. Considering the ZX Spectrum’s limitations, this game is somewhat ahead of its time.
Out Of The Shadows even features a kind of overhead, real-time lighting that was innovative back in 1984, and the combat is scary as hell. It is well worth a look in an emulator if you are interested in RPG history.
