Traps of Darkness sends players racing through demonic realms, fighting to be the first to recover all the keys needed to free their unholy master and ensure that they are favored above their rivals when the world finally goes to hell. Combining the macabre isometric action of Diablo with the "it's good to be bad" tactical planning of Dungeon Keeper, Traps of Darkness is a strategy game designed to offer frantic, fast-paced competition in a disturbing game world. Players take the role of a faithful servant of the dark lord Ragnar. As they progress through the adventure, their characters' abilities can be expanded or improved, through an RPG-style experience system.
Seven evil heroes are available for play — knight, stone golem, orc, fog woman, beast master, magician, or skeleton — each with distinct powers and abilities. Players must seek and find many keys to gain access to the inner circles the game's first three main areas, where they may hope to obtain pieces of the ultimate Skull Key that allows them to move on to the final chapter. Time is of the essence, since energy is constantly decreasing as long as the character remains in an area. Most actions, such as laying traps for rivals or fighting, also require energy. Players must make smart, on-the-spot decisions to proceed through each stage efficiently, safely, and ahead of their competition. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
