Al Qadim: The Genie's Curse features a new and improved interface and game engine. The perspective is that of a slant-overhead view that allows
you to guide your character through the adventure. In comparison the view and scrolling are much better than those of Ultima series.
The game as based on the AD&D 2nd Edition rules and is enriched by exiting new concepts, spells, and creatures designed especially for this
campaign setting. You play a single fighter type character. Swordplay is enhanced to a semi-arcade level with an ability to learn up to three specific
combat moves. Those combat moves become available as you increase in level and find a trainer willing to teach them to you.
The bestiary is close to standard but even the classic creatures are tainted with a touch of Arabian exoticism making each and every battle a new experience.
