Anvil of Dawn is a first person role-playing game. It is one of the last non-3D first person role-playing game that relies on pre-rendered graphics and sprite animations. It cleverly uses transition effect to create a smooth movement when we move around and make turns. The world is huge. There are many places that we need to adventure, get clues, solve the puzzles and proceed to the last level. We will go under water as well. Unlike other games, Anvil of Dawn does not require us to do manual mapping. The auto mapping function will do the job for us. We can choose one of the five characters to start with. Each carries different characteristic. The spells are categorized into four categories, which we have to pick the category that we like in the beginning. Similar to magic, the weapon skills also being categorized into a few categories, and we also have to pick our preference in the beginning of the game.

8/8/2012 6:09:00 AM - marcus this is a great game i love it and i think all need to play
3/30/2012 4:45:00 PM - Terran For those whom are getting the freezes: You are playing a version that has no voices installed with it. If you press F3 (ingame - not sure if it works in the menu) then deselect voices. If you can't reinstall the game from scratch and don't turn on the voices, cause they didn't come with the game! Get the CD version (around 380mb) if you want the game to work, with the voices.
1/27/2012 5:40:00 AM - Joe Ok so i tried this again and I still cant even pick someone to play with. I have tried ever option from the drop down that the instaler has, what else can i do?
