Peace has returned to Ancardia, and the peasants dare to dream once more of prosperity. Seven very different factions vie for control over the cataclysmic aftermath left behind by Andor Drakon’s defeat. And somewhere, deep down in an inhospitable cave, ChAoS is stirring again. Pick up your blade, prepare your spells, check your daggers and ready your bow, for you are about to enter the ominous Caverns of Chaos...


Experience the modern reimagining of a traditional classic

After over 25 years, the official sequel to ADOM is finally released. Experience the modern reimagining of a traditional roguelike dungeon-crawling classic. Endless procedurally generated dungeons, countless monsters, grafting, crafting and a vast amount of skill trees and items allow for unlimited replayability. Evil has been vanquished.

Choose your allegiance carefully, for you are nothing more than an expendable asset to the masters you choose. Fight for a mercenary's glory and purse, for the justice of a folk in decline, for the light of purity or even for ChAoS itself. Every choice you make will determine how you approach the ever-changing Caverns of Chaos before you.

One of the major selling points of this release is how incredibly deep the gameplay is. You can play as a randomly generated character or you can spend ages creating one that plays to your strengths.


There's a huge learning curve to get your head around

It's a punishingly difficult game. One wrong move and it's game over and you'll need to start all over again. Even the tutorial is a huge challenge to complete. But you're strongly advised to play through the tutorial as it prepares you well for what is to come in the main game.

There's a huge learning curve to get your head around. But the more you play the more you understand and the quicker you adapt to possible scenarios.

I really enjoyed this game and for under £15 it's a steal. Fun, retro graphics, solid old school gameplay make this a release you'll want to return to again and again for years to come.
