    There this old (mid 90s I think) game I used to play, which I'm pretty sure was a FG game, but I can't find it on the internet. I can't remember the title but I'm hoping someone here will know what I'm talking about.

    You start in locked up and forced to take part in battles in an areana aginst various monsters and then you can try to escape with some other prisoners. It has a top-down view and sprite graphics similar to Tower Assault from what I remember.

    If anyone has any idea what I'm talking about please help, a screenshot would be great if you could find one.

    Thanks!

    There's an area of Baldur's Gate 2 like that, but the game doesn't start that way. Other than that, I have no idea.

    I've played all the Gold Box AD&D Forgotten Realms games as well as the Dragonlance series (Champions of Krynn, Death Knights of Krynn, Dark Queen of Krynn). But none of them start you off locked up somewhere and forced to fight. Plus the view is either first person 3D or overhead 2D map.

    My guess it that the game you're looking for was NOT a Forgotten Realms game.

    Hillsfar?

    No no. Maybe you're thinking about an AD&D game set in the darksun setting.

    Darksun: The Shattered Lands... You start off as a prisoner and have to fight in the arena.
