Though cast in the action/RPG game-play style of Diablo, Nox breaks its mold and offers up more than a few pleasant surprises. The third-person isometric perspective offers a refreshing dose of humor, served up by a slick interface and starring very distinct character classes. Much more than a clone, Nox takes the best the genre had and--for the most part--makes it better.

Nox's story of a harmless auto mechanic who gets accidentally sucked into a fantasy world immediately sets this game apart from its dark and dour brethren. Nox is funny, and it's refreshing to play an RPG that tries to put a smile on your face.

Game play, dungeons, puzzles, and even the story are slightly altered, depending on Jack's class, giving three separate single-player experiences, all leading to the same final showdown with Hecubah. The quests are typical RPG fare--find this, kill that, rescue these guys--spiced up with puzzles relating to the class's abilities or environment. The Nox team's energies went toward creating a game that's fast, fun, and easy to play. It worked.

Does anyone know how to stop Nox's screen from flickering to display nothing?
I'm using a windows 7 64bit system and it occasionally works fine...

Probably a long shot, but I'll still try.
Does anyone still play this game? And anyone ever made any maps or mods for NoX?
If so pm me, thanks.

Alas, it will always be foreshadowed by C&C.

Thumbs up to this game! Why does it have two pages, though?
