Gateway to Apshai (Colecovision and Commodore 64) Manual Artwork

This is the image from the Gateway to Apshai, a roguelike RPG for the Colecovision. Below is the crazy Commodore 64 box version...

Released in 1983, it's one of the first console RPGs, and it remains impressive in 2013--thirty years after it was made.

It's a few years after the groundsbreaking Ultima games, but still I have to admire Gateway to Apshai's ambition and vast amount of content. An almost endless series of dungeons are available to explore.

Give it a try, its one of the best on the Colecovision.
