Realms of Chaos is a platform game written for DOS, published by Apogee Software as shareware. The game was authored by Keith Schuler, who had previously designed Paganitzu, and was originally to be a sequel entitled Alabama Smith and the Bloodfire Pendant.[1] It is still sold by Apogee. Like previous platform Apogee games, this one utilized the FAST engine.[2] The game was re-released in 2013 on Gog.com with support for Windows, macOS, and Linux.

Gameplay[edit]

The gameplay of Realms of Chaos was like the standard action platformer commonly found on consoles. At any time the player can switch between two siblings, a warrior called Endrick and a sorceress named Elandra, depending on which character is better suited to the particular situation. It consists of three episodes, with only the first episode playable in the shareware version.

Reception[edit]

Ole Albers from German magazine PC Joker gave it a score of 54%.[3] A review in Power Unlimited, on the other hand, was much more positive and rewarded the game with an 8 out of 10.[4][5]
