- Level 25: Veteran (Archer and Warrior), Defender (Valkyrie), and Conjurer (Wizard).
- Level 50: Ranger (Archer), Champion (Warrior and Valkyrie), and Sorcerer (Wizard).
- Level 75: Master (Archer and Warrior), Captain (Valkyrie), and Archmage (Wizard).
- At Level 99, Legend applies to all four characters.
The game is similar in play to the original. Up to four players at a time can explore the different worlds, face hordes of monsters, search for treasure, avoid traps, pick up and use magic, and make their way to the exits. In addition, players also have to contend with boss enemies, solve puzzles, discover power-ups, and follow the stroyline. The game has four worlds and each world has a different boss enemy: the Dragon, the Djinn, the three-headed Chimera, and the Spider Queen.
The main object of the game is to defeat Skorne. To reach this enemy, you must collect all four keys, one from each boss enemy. The players must also collect all twelve Rune Stones that are hidden throughout the four worlds. After Skorne has been defeated, the game ends.
