The Immortal is a 1990 dungeon-crawler RPG developed and published by Electronic Arts for the Apple IIGS. It was ported to several home computers and consoles, including the Sega Mega Drive (released 1991). It was released in 1993 in Japan, where it was called Wizard of the Immortal (ウィザード・オブ・イモータル).

Gameplay

You play as a wizard who must navigate through a series of labyrinths serving as a warzone between goblins and trolls while finding your mentor, who is trapped in a dungeon far below your own (even though he is seeking another pupil's aid). C opens a menu to switch between items; you must hold down the D-pad while pressing A to select.

Some items can be assigned to the A button to use while navigating the dungeon. If you run into an enemy (such as a goblin), you enter a battle screen with them, which appears to be fought by mashing buttons until you drain the enemy's health (their health is indicated by bars on the left side of the screen; your health on the right).
