Released a few years after Dungeon Master, the Eye of the Beholder used a similar "point-and-click" interface and brought slightly better graphics.


***SPOILER*** - 3D maps for the 12 levels, reversed from the original files (*.maz, *.inf) - (updated 06/14/2015) :

  • Ceilings are excluded, in order to view inside the levels
  • *New* Critters are now drawn (as vertical bitmaps)
  • 2D items are drawn as horizontal sprites, usually laying on the ground
  • I had to create custom floor bitmaps, because the game shows them in perspective (therefore they couldn't be re-used here)
Example (level 2)

EOB (partially) recoded for Windows

Some years ago I tried to recode EOB for Windows. I spent a few months making the first 2 levels, then I gave up (leaving some features not fully implemented; like the reaction of the foes during fight...)

Here's a small video of the result :

And an overview of the level designor that I developped at this time :
