When you're creating your group of adventurers you can choose between several different classes and species: warriors, paladins, thieves, clerics, and magicians; humans, elves, dwarfs, and gnomes. Of course, every class has its own set of abilities that you can improve bit by bit while you advance through the dungeons.
Besides these special powers, which are the main weapons of the warriors or thieves, you have more than 40 spells at your disposal. These are the main tricks of the magicians and clerics, who use the spells to attack and protect themselves, which makes them very versatile classes.
To put the features of Swords and Sorcery - Underworld Gold into numerical terms: you'll find more than 100 different enemies, each illustrated by hand, and more than 200 objects, including weapons, armor, and potions. All of this will result in hours and hours of death in the dungeons.
