Hillsfar was a video game set in the Forgotten Realms developed by Westwood Studios in 1989 and published by Strategic Simulations, Inc..

GameplayEdit

The player chooses a character and starts in Hillsfar. It was one of the first RPGs that tried to combine simple hack-and-slay style with puzzles. The story was simple, with the player-character just walking around the town and its surrounding area, solving some puzzles and fighting action sequences, while trying to find treasures and weapons. Unlike most role-playing games, there aren't any randomly generated monsters to battle, combat only occurs in the arena.

Mini-GamesEdit

In the game, there are various mini-games that are required to complete the quests or missions.

  • Competing at the archery range.
  • Exploring buildings or mazes.
  • Fighting in the arena.
  • Locking picking doors and chests.
  • Riding a horse outside Hillsfar while avoiding obstacles.
