Telengard
Review 1:
As one of the earliest role playing games, Telengard features only a few,
prmitive features. Still, the game is quite fun to play... and hard! You
can play as only one character, a warrior/wizard rogue determined to kill
a lot of monsters, gain powerful weapons and get rich. Enjoy in this
pioneer product!

Review 2:

Telengard is one of the real early classics based on probably the first
true dungeon crawler Rogue. You start Telengard by creating your
character and once you are done with that you enter the first dungeon.
While you can generate new stats for your character this is also the only
thing you can do. Unlike todayís roleplay games where you can select many
things like class, alignment and race you canít select any of those
things in Telengard. Personally I didnít get very far most of the times I
played this since itís very easy to die Ė especially in the beginning and
itís also hard to get new items and gain higher levels. So if you meet a
Goblin level 1 you should be able to win but you can also meet a lot
tough monsters after just very little time so Telengard is highly
unbalanced since you can pretty much only survive by running from the
tough monsters all the time or just hope you will only meet the easy
ones. While the graphics are not impressive compared to todayís games it
wonít matter to anyone as long as they are into roleplay games. Telengard
must be one of the most simple roleplay games ever made but itís still
very addictive and while I was just playing it again to remember a few
more details about it again I still played it much longer than I had
planed just because I had to kill that Minotaur that I was killed by
earlier.

Review 3:

A nice little nostalgic RPG in tradition of Rogue. Not bad after all, you
run through a dungeon, defeat monsters, find treasures and useful items.
Can surely be fun for a while. The atmosphere is pretty good considering
the fact that there aren't great graphics or anything like that.
Telengard is worth a try for all RPG-Fans, maybe not so much for people
who aren't much interested in that genre. Review 4: An early
dungeon-crawl RPG, Avalon Hill's Telengard is among the first Roguelike
games ever made for the PC. Since the original version (for the TRS-80
computer) came out way back in 1982, Telengard should be considered one
of the grandaddies of Roguelike games. Although the gameplay is extremely
simple, Telengard is by no means easy. You'll die a lot before gaining a
level, and new, better weapons are hard to come by. There is only one
character class to play as-- a warrior/wizard combination, although you
can re-roll the starting stats and cast spells during the game. Telengard
features some neat ideas that became commonplace in Roguelikes, such as
scrolls, and teleporters you can use to warp around the dungeon. All in
all, a respectable dungeon hack that didn't set any standards, but
probably inspired a lot of authors to program Roguelikes of their own.
