I Wish: Dungeon Master II

Any of you remember this game from old Interplay/macplay? It was a pretty simple bitmap based 3D dungeon crawler RPG with magic and fighting, traps and puzzles. I feel like it would be perfect for the iphone's interface. I really want to see this game, or a game like it on iphone.

hmm...

how much are you willing to pay for how much game time?

RPGs are one of those things that don't give enough replayability, and development time is huge for those things, so pricing is a significant issue

If they're done correctly, they can end up giving a lot more replay value than most other games.

There already is Dragon Bane 2 which is basically a dungeon master / Might and Magic clone.
Not sure anyone still has the rights/source codes to make a -real- Dungeon Master port

Dungeon master 1 and chaos stike back were a lot better than dungeon master 2 IMHO.

Anyway this is one of the best game ever , and it's not at all like Dungeon bane (who is more like a bard's tales clone)
In dungeon master it's a lot more about character management and awesom level design...

I have some plan to make a dungeon master like kind of game, (more like a Lands of lore ,with great graphics) but that'll be after we finish 1112 ans the other side project

I remember playing this on my mac, way back in the days!
A port would be awesome, maybe update the graphics a little, they are horrible by todays standards.

Yeah Keeper was the RTS game. Master was an RPG game. I don't even care if the graphics stay the same. I just remember how fun the spellcasting was, those cool symbols, and experimenting with the symbols.
