In Dungeons & Dragons Heroes, you take on the role of one of four resurrected D&D Heroes (Fighter, Wizard, Cleric & Rogue), each carved in the style of fictional famed fantasy figures drawn from the D&D universe. The game focuses around combat and developing your character, "The Hero", as you journey through the game's levels to collect all of the Planar Gems and vanquish the evil force that threatens to end life as we know it. Dungeons & Dragons Heroes features gorgeously detailed characters in lush environments that are rich for adventuring, each populated with gruesome Dungeons & Dragons monsters, treasures and sinister traps.
