Advanced Dungeons & Dragons: Heroes of the Lance (Buy on eBay) was a video game based on a portion of the novel Dragons of Autumn Twilight from the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing series. The game was originally released for home computers in 1988 and the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1991. Despite its roots, this was not a role-playing game, but a side-scrolling action game.
The object of the game is for eight heroes to retrieve the Disks of Mishakal from the dragon Khisanth. Three of the heroes have special abilities of healing magic, wizard magic, and trap removal, while the remaining five heroes have no special abilities. Within game play, after the active hero dies, the next hero in line will appear. This game was followed by three NES Advanced Dungeons & Dragons sequels, some of which played as traditional role-playing games.
