We could only wish we were playing this right now... maybe...
This game was never completed and/or given a public release.
As a result of this, keep in mind that the developers might have used or deleted some of the content featured here, had the game actually reached store shelves.

The NES HeroQuest is an unreleased adaptation of the board game of the same name, containing the quests of the base set (HeroQuest Game System) and the "Return of the Witch Lord" expansion, as well as one of the best title themes out there.

Two different builds are known to be around: an incomplete US version, and a near-complete European version.
