Eye Of The Beholder 3 - Dungeon Crawler fans behold! A special free treat from Indie Retro News (UPDATE)


It was today that I added the last Eye Of The Beholder to my collection. The third EOB dungeon crawler RPG in the trilogy of Eye of the Beholder series, the Assault on Myth Drannor. Unlike the previous games it was not developed by Westwood Studios but in-house by the publisher SSI in 1993/4. The third and final game of the Eye of the Beholder series would see players embarking on a quest to the fabled ruins of the city of Myth Drannor. In my opinion it was still a worthy dungeon crawler, but many fans of the series did not like it at all, as it had over sized maze like maps, performance problems, unchallenging battles with poorly designed puzzles and the storyline wasn't so good. But yet I still enjoyed it, and today you can too, with a lot of those performance problems fan fixed! This is a completely portable runnable edition, fixed up by myself. No longer will you have to mess with lots of settings and copy over freely available files, nope. Just run and go! A real treat for Dungeon Crawler fans, so read on!


Eye of the Beholder 3 fan patched version is running with the AESOP/32 instead of the AESOP/16 engine. It makes the difference between it running unbearably choppy and now almost perfectly smooth. Original thread and fanbased coder info here & original emulator (DOSBOX) here
Have fun Dungeon Crawler fans!


INSTRUCTIONS : Unpack the EOB3-FIXED.rar file to your C:\ then run DOSBoxPortable in the EOB3 directory, it's that simple! If you want to edit screen sizes or go full screen every time just edit the dosbox.conf file in C:\Games\eob3\Data\settings.

UPDATE : Fixed version uploaded, different dosbox used to fix errors with sound and music, and also better config mounting thanks to tomse. Make sure to delete your previous EOB 3 game and use this one instead.

( When downloading from any site, always make sure it downloads the zip and NOT an exe )

Mirror as of 2015

  1. Thanks for the config file fix, however your sound issues were down to the dosbox version used. Try now, should be so much better

    Hi, I noticed the screenshot is of one of Bunches' characters "Platic". We never did figure out what the key (h)Thrashing did. It says Thrashing....Thrashed, but does anyone know what it actually does?

  5. Link doesn't work. Multiupload just directs to a virus site (iLivid)

    Thank you for the heads up, have taken down the link straight away. Multiupload was originally a working site but I guess has since been closed and the hosters changed. Will fix as soon as possible

  10. Sorry for the hassle, we have been unable to find a multi-upload hoster that is free and void of adverts for our readers. If you can recommend any, we'd be glad to change over. Cheers
