The original Excave was boring, soul-crushing and tedious hack 'n slash dungeon-crawler with decent 3D models and generic nondescript dungeons. Excave II: Wizard of the Underworld is the second in the Excave trilogy developed by Mechanical Arms and does aim a little higher than its first instalment, which can be generously considered a prototype at best. In this second game, Mechanical Arms sought to make the game a bit wieldier by improving the interface, giving the stages a bit more visual variety. and attempting to give some semblance of context or story. Cubed3 excavates, yet again, in Excave II: Wizard of the Underworld.
