Keys Of The Wizard is a text based adventure game, but with a bit of a twist: You and the monsters have health levels that get affected as you battle (they are holding some of the treasure that you need to find), and they move around and attack in semi-real time (ala Dungeons of Daggorath). There is also sound, which was rare for text adventure games at the time. It is a quite complicated game, with 3 main floors of 64 locations, 3 mazes, and one-way passageways. The objective is to collect all the treasures and put them in "The Sanctuary", similiar to other adventure games. The hard part: when you start the game, you have no idea where the Sanctuary is...
