From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

   J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, Vol. II: The Two Towers is a video game published by Interplay Productions. It is an adaptation of The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien, being the second volume in The Lord of the Rings. The game was released in 1992 for DOS, PC-98, and FM Towns. It is a sequel to J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, Vol. I.
   The gameplay is similar to that of the first game. The game is an RPG wherein the player controls multiple characters from the book. It uses a top-down perspective. The game takes place slightly before its predecessor ends: at the dark forest of Fangorn. The story splits into several journeys of different characters similar to the book, the game also switches between different controllable parties. The ultimate goal is to reach Mount Doom and destroy the One Ring, though this is never accomplished in-game as these final scenes were going to be in Volume III, which was never made.

More details about this game can be found on Wikipedia.org.

Platform:

This ver­sion of The Lord of the Rings, Vol. II: The Two Towers was de­sig­ned for per­so­nal com­pu­ters with o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem MS-DOS (Mi­cro­soft Disk O­pe­ra­ting Sys­tem), which was o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem de­ve­lo­ped by Mi­cro­soft in 1981. It was the most wi­de­ly-used o­pe­ra­ting sys­tem in the first half of the 1990s. MS-DOS was sup­plied with most of the IBM com­pu­ters that pur­cha­sed a li­cen­se from Mi­cro­soft. Af­ter 1995, it was pu­s­hed out by a gra­phi­cal­ly mo­re ad­van­ced sys­tem - Win­dows and its de­ve­lop­ment was ce­a­sed in 2000. At the ti­me of its grea­test fa­me, se­ve­ral thou­sand ga­mes de­sig­ned spe­ci­fi­cal­ly for com­pu­ters with this sys­tem we­re cre­a­ted. To­day, its de­ve­lop­ment is no lon­ger con­ti­nue and for e­mu­la­tion the free DOSBox e­mu­la­tor is most of­ten used. Mo­re in­for­ma­ti­on about MS-DOS operating system can be found here.
