Dungeons and Dragons: Heroes is a 4 player dungeon-crawling game similar to Gauntlet. The game is loosely based on the 3rd Edition of Dungeons and Dragons. Much of that is in items and spells, and not as much in gameplay.
The player can choose to play as a human-fighter, a dwarven- cleric, a halfling-rogue, or an elf- wizard. Each player must pick one of those characters in multiplayer, and are not able to pick the same character as someone else.
In the story, all 4 characters are brought back to life to fight a wizard they defeated over a century ago. Bosses, such as Beholders, and other Dungeons and Dragons enemies are fought.
