Warren Spector's Ultima Underworld: The Stygian Abyss is the grandfather of all 3d games. (-> with Dungeon Master and Eye of the Beholder as godparents). The revolution: Fluid person movement in a 3d environment, looking up and down, movement in all directions, dungeon maps with a lot of variety: slopes, stairs, bridges, running water …, real time combat with weapons and rune magic.

The story is a bit cheesy - but this game is dungeon crawling at its best.

Two thumbs up for this game!

For every complex problem, there is a solution that is simple, neat, and wrong. - HL Mencken
