A downloadable game


Promethean Legacy is a dice-rolling strategy game for the Commodore 64. You have six dice and the number of pips on the sides of each die can be increased (or decreased!). At the start of each game the dice have low numbers on each side, some are even blank. 

Move the cursor over a dice and press fire to pick it up, then you can drag it to an open slot and press fire again to drop it. If the slot is not valid, the dice will return home.

Complete quests by placing qualifying dice into the slots, which will upgrade one or more of the dice involved, or reward you in some other way. The game is won when the five 'monument' quests are completed, which involve placing dice totalling a target amount that increases each time. Try and complete the game in as few turns as possible!

The catch is that you must keep at least one sacred fire burning after each turn. These can be lit by sacrificing a pip on one dice, by building a monument or completing certain other quests. The game is over if the fire runs out and no sacrifice is made or qualifying quest completed.




  • Dice can be 'parked' on uncompleted quest slots if you want to save a favourable roll for the next turn.
  • Concentrate on upgrading a few sides of each die and sacrifice the others.
  • If you are stuck with quests you cannot complete, use the 'New Quests' button to sacrifice a turn and clear the quest board.
  • Take advantage of quests that offer 'free fire stokes'. This means dice can be sacrificed to gain a lot of fire without losing pips, buying time to complete more quests.

Quite fun.  I think I keep hitting a bug where sometimes an extra fire goes out and I lose with no warning.  Might be from completing two quests when one quest extinguishes a fire an the other isn't supposed to.

Commodore goodness!

very good
