Overview

Oubliette is the classic multiplayer dungeon fantasy role playing game, now available on your NOOK Color, NOOK Tablet, NOOK HD and NOOK HD+. Build a party of fighters, priests, mages and thieves to run deep into the dungeon. Test your courage and skill against groups of orcs, trolls, vampires and dragons.

Earning its reputation as the thinking man's dungeon game, Oubliette blends the thrill of mortal combat with the sublime challenges of strategy, planning and adaptation. Rather than testing your reaction speed and nerves, like a first person shooter, Oubliette challenges the player to do careful strategic planning as well as make tactical decisions in the heat of battle.

Each player (character) in the game is created from one of eight player races, which vary in attributes such as strength, intelligence, dexterity and durability. Elves are highly intelligent and (potentially) immortal, Orcs are strong with short life spans, Dwarves are strong with high wisdom, Kobolds are quite weak in most areas but advance more quickly.

Depending on these attributes, each player will be qualified to join a limited number of player classes (occupations). More balanced players will have more choices, including Hirebrand (fighter), Mage, Priest and Thief. Less commonly, players may be qualified for a highly selective class with special skills such as Ranger, Sage, Paladin, Samurai or Ninja.

Unlike games which focus on a single player against multiple opponents, Oubliette allows a party of up to 10 players with complementary skills to face the various types of monsters found in the dungeon. There are more than 160 different monsters, and to deal with them, more than 150 different pieces of equipment, which may be enchanted with special properties or skills.

Oubliette is challenging, but forgiving. New players commonly have their parties wiped out by an unfamiliar group of monsters. In fact, your party can meet up to 5 monster groups at the same time! Use the Temporal Chamber to save a Temporal Portal before dangerous trips. If things turn out badly, use the Temporal Chamber to turn back the clock and try again. The trapeze is every bit as thrilling, but safer, with a net below.

Explore the easier levels of the dungeon to build your party and expertise. And then, when you are ready, feel the power of the game on the deeper levels. Onward to Glory!

To those complaining about the lack of plot and the difficulty: you're kind of missing the point. This is an update to one of the very first electronic RPGs. Oubliette was first published in 1977, and at that time had only text and a few wireframe boxes to represent the dungeon. For its time, it was quite unique, and introduced a number of concepts that have become bedrock elements for CRPGs generally (Wizardry and its progeny drew heavily on Oubliette). So if you're comparing it to modern CRPGs, no, it doesn't have the same production values. For a $2.50 trip down memory lane, however, this app is a blast for people like me who are old enough to remember games of its type.

It was a treat to find a game like this on the nook store. Reminded me of old wizardry and bard's tales games from the 1980's. Very robust charater creation. Overall great game.

Its one of those oldish styled RPGs. It's a good one, I think its fun, and if you like old styled RPGs, then you should consider getting it.

I never played this game in its original version, however as I read about it, nook has added some very nice touches to make it a little more user friendly. If you do not read the helps, and you do not consult some walkthroughs, it is very hard to grasp. But a little homework goes a long way. I personally liked that they had some ready made characters at the start. That way you get right at the action and can get a feel for the game without getting slaughtered. This game begs to be played time and time again. There is no "quick to the finishline" here. It's about finesse, patience, a little planning, and a lot of playing. When I turn the game off, I always want more! I have wanted a game like this for nook since I got mine, and I wish there were more like it!

This is really fun game because the monsters you face are hard when you go deeper and its hard to find the staircase going down but my good dwarf character died and he didnt come back

Have been waiting for this game to come back in some way or form and they brought it back to almost it's original aspect. This was played in the 80's mostly so don't expect anything new. The same maps are there and play style with one exception. It's more real time than turn-based now. No more typing in the spell name as you pick it from a list. This brings back the good memories. Only bad part was when starting the first time, you have to d/l 38MB of data and my NOOK kept failing to d/l until finally hours later.

the game is great, the only problem is that if you accidenteley hit the wrong button, its highly likely that your party is screwed.

I thought hey it could be good... not. First off bad graphics, combat sucks, equipment management is rough, no plot, and the list goes on. I wasted my money and wish i could get it back. I would rather pop a pimple then play it. I mean someone took time to make it that is what is scarey.
