    Angry Video Game Nerd (AVGN) episode 173: The Immortal for NES. The review part was filmed in one continuous shot. The Immortal is an isometric adventure game originally created for the Apple IIGS by Will Harvey and published by Electronic Arts. The main plot revolves around a wizard attempting to find his mentor in a large and dangerous labyrinth. The game is known for its high degree of graphic violence (it is much reduced in the NES version) along with its punishing difficulty. Let's see if the Nerd can tackle this game and his own dungeon.

      Oh crap! I actually remember this game. When i was kid i used to play it. Well at least try to play it because all that i would usually do is die. A few months ago i was wondering what the name of this game was so i could play it. Now that i know it im trying it again.

    Oh wow. Another terrible early 90s NES port of a PC game. This is complete ass. The PC game, however is completely playable if challenging, with decent gfx and sound for the time.
    Theres not one hit kill flying shit all over the place and "it might be a good idea to move" doesnt exist. Theres a lot more text to tell you whats going on, and it gives you a map to tells you where the pit traps are within 5 mins of play. Also, the items dont kill you for no reason.
    You want to play it, play that one. This isnt just ass its dysentary ass.

    I played this game on SEGA without manual or solution. It's amasing game, cryptic, but fair. Like Dark Souls or Re:Zero of 16bit era.
