Mystic Towers is a 3D-perspective adventure game starring an elderly wizard named Baron Baldric. Your mission is to destroy monster generators in the Lazarian Towers, and kill all of the monsters. Baldric can use a number of spells to kill monsters, levitate over obstacles, reveal secrets, and teleport. The game has very nice music and is full of imaginative monsters. Version 1.0 was an incomplete version that was only released in a UK Magazine. Version 1.1 was the first complete shareware version. The confusing part is that the installation file on Apogee's website states that the download contains v1.0, the installer claims to be installing v1.1, and the game screen says v1.11. This is, in fact, the only complete version that was ever released to the public. There are 6 episodes in this game, with only the first episode playable in the shareware version. Each episode has 2 towers, making for a total of 12 towers, and over 600 rooms to explore.
