Pool of Radiance

The pool of Radiance is a role-playing game. The game consists of the perspective of first-person and provides top to down view. The location of the player can be seen on the maps and the present time is also shown. As the player continues in the game, he meets several non-player characters, goes to many shops, and attend events. The fights are tough and it is not easy to win them. The game contains several unusual missiles, huge creatures, robbers, burglars and the list goes on. The player can always use the fireball charm to defeat the enormous number of foes and thus, save himself. The player needs to defend his warriors as they are important and can be utilized in forming walls for saving themselves from the magic and encounter the magician before he uses his magic. The soldiers in the battle use weapons for fighting. The fighting system is fun and interesting. The thieves can open the locks using their skills and knowledge and the magicians use their magic to unlock the locks so that they can open the doors. On the contrary, the mighty soldiers can break the locks to open the doors. There are not enough traps in the game and also, the usage of spells is limited. The spells can only be used during a fight and for healing the wounds. The gameplay of the pool of radiance revolves around fights, wars, and the wise choices to be made in order to win the battle. The game is set in a fanciful world and amuses the player with the thrill and adventure. The graphics and the music part are done well which increases the interest in the game.
