Imagine. There you are, chilling out at home in your trailer in Florida. Suddenly, all hell breaks loose! Your TV goes on the fritz and while trying to correct the problem, a time and space dimensional wormhole forms. It sucks you and your television through it and deposits you unceremoniously on an alien-world airship whose slightly strange Captain trades you safe passage to the ground for your old TV set. Welcome to the world of Nox.

Playing as Jack Mower (with an option to personalize the name), you take control of the adventure as a very unlikely hero. As Nox unfolds around you through exploration and legendary history, you discover a world in desperate need of a savior -- a champion to lead the resistance against the return of the Necromancers of the North. A race of vile and evil opponents with the ability to suck the very dead straight from the ground with the sole purpose of delivering disease, death and destruction to all living beings.

In Nox, a fantasy role-playing adventure played from third-person perspective, you can choose one of three hero classes: warrior, wizard and conjurer. As a warrior, strength is the dominant attribute, as physical ability to wield weapons and wear armor is tantamount to success. Choose the wizard to explore the art of spell casting as you make your way through the varied environments and locations of Nox, learn to set deadly magical traps and create disconcerting illusions. Or, you can become a conjurer, endowed with the ability to summon and control creatures to do your bidding -- a hero with a mix of both warrior- and wizard-like attributes.

Both the wizard and conjurer have specific spells (45 and 24 respectively) with which to engage the enemy while the warrior has five skills ranging from a berserker charge to the ability to see invisible items. More than 18 weapons and nearly a dozen types of armor (not all usable by each class) are available and run the gamut from leather to plate mail. These arsenals are used to combat a varied menagerie of Nox beasts including such creatures as bats, spiders, trolls, scorpions, imps and ghosts, to name a few.

Use the Westwood Studios multi-player facility, Westwood Online, to battle with or against up to 31 Internet foes. Several multi-player options are provided including Arena, Capture the Flag, Elimination, Noxball and King of the Realm. Nox also supports 32 players via a LAN connection. Think you've got what it takes to be a hero in a strange land? Find out as you delve deep into the dangerous and deadly world of Nox.

For Windows [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']

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.

IMAGES:

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.

COMPATIBILITY:

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.

PLATFORM:

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.

MEDIA FORMAT:

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.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR A SMOOTH PURCHASE:

  • 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.


  • SHIPPING:

    We typically ship all items out within 1-2 business days after payment is received. In regards to the stated shipping and handling, remember that these costs include more than just postage.

    International buyers please email/chat with us to determine if you are eligible for shipping of a specific product. If you are, then international buyers not shipping to an address within the U.S. can expect their orders to take anywhere from 5 days to 4 weeks to be received, depending on how fast/well USPS is moving. Additionally, international orders typically have to go through governmental customs, which can delay the arrival process. Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. Customs fees are normally charged by the shipping company or collected when you pick the item up. These fees are not additional shipping charges.
