Kyle’s Quest, a Palm OS role playing game with a twist, has been announced
Introducing Kyle’s Quest Dungeons… A look at a typical RPG from the flipside! This time, as an evil monster, you’ll need to build dungeons and attract other monsters to keep out the pesky human adventurers. But don’t think it’ll be easy just because there seems to be an endless supply of foul creatures! You’ll have to build everything from scratch yourself! Lifting heavy boulders and digging dirt might seem beneath you, but every evil boss should know that if you want it done right, you have to do it yourself!
