Clans PC CD fight dark minions demons mages dungeon role-playing combat RPG game 



Strategy First, Inc. 



The imposing castle gates loom directly in front of you. The peace and tranquility of the realm have been devastated by the return of the Demon and his dark minions. Each of the four Clans has selected the strongest, wisest and most courageous warrior to enter the Demon's multi-layered fortress to hunt down and destroy his vast legion of vile and craven creatures. As the chosen champion of your clan, you must enter the dark and dangerous lair and recover the lost Crown of Peace and fight your way to the final confrontation with the Demon. Only then can the realm live in harmony once again.

In Clans, developed by Computerhouse and Strategy First, you play as one of four champions chosen to rebuke and destroy the Demon and his army of evil denizens. You'll adventure alone into seven distinct levels of mayhem, using guile, strength and magic spells as you go ever deeper in your quest for the Crown of Peace. The journey will be fraught with danger as each step offers the possibility of encountering any number of monsters whose entire reason for existence is a wanton desire to kill anyone who crosses their path, in some cases, even each other.

A dozen evil and aggressive types of demonic soldiers will constantly confront you and even hunt you down if you try to avoid them. Included are goblins, dark elves, lillfets, two kinds of orcs, undead skeletons, trolls, reptiles, two classes of magic wielding mages, ravens and lastly, the Demon himself. The four types of champions from which you choose your on-screen alter ego consist of a warrior, barbarian, elf or dwarf, each with specific attributes that improve through experience and the use of various weapons, potions, scrolls and magic.

Potions and spells can be combined to make the effects of usage more powerful and the darkened environment contains various items such as armor, shields, gold, potions, rings and weapons to pack into your inventory for use at the appropriate time. Spells include fireball, explosion, confusion, lightning bolt and meteor rain while rings and potions come with varying degrees of potency and adjustable strengths.

In this role-playing action/adventure, gameplay is conducted from a third-person, isometric perspective with the interface a simple point-and-click affair with supporting keyboard shortcuts. Clans offers multi-player action for up to four players over the Internet or a local area network. Multi-player modes include death match, cooperative or Gold Rush, the latter offering two types of games based on collection of gold.

Clans features a large contingent of non-player characters with whom you interact, three types of transportation portals for moving around within a level, dynamic lighting effects and various puzzles to overcome. The levels of the Demon's lair consist of At the Gates, Underdark (a cavern filled with molten lava), the Chambers of Torment (dungeons) and The Commoner's Quarters. Rounding out the seven locales is the Garden of Eternity, The King's Quarters and finally, The Dragon's Den.

So, choose your champion, grab your weapon, rev up the mana and, if you dare, enter the dark and challenging realm of Clans. The Demon is waiting for you!

For Windows (32-bit Systems) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']


This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.
