Advanced Dungeons & Dragons: Slayer is a fantasy first-person action role-playing game based on the second edition of Advanced Dungeons and Dragons.[2]

Gameplay[edit]

Slayer features a customizable dungeon generator so each time the player starts the game, they are faced with a new dungeon. The dungeon always ends with a boss floor, randomly selected from several possible bosses. When starting a new game, the player may either create a custom character with randomly generated stats, pick from a selection of preset characters, or reuse a previously created character. The game may be saved at any time, but is limited to a single save slot.

Publication history[edit]

It was released in North America in 1994 and later released in Japan on January 20, 1995.[1] A sequel, Advanced Dungeons & Dragons: Deathkeep, also appeared in 1995.

Reception[edit]

Slayer met moderate critical response.[2]

According to GameSpy, "if you have a copy of Slayer you'll one day be rewarded when it becomes a hard-to-find collectable".[3]
