In the version 2.21 (released 28th of July 2005) the game was changed. A new music, regions and characters were added, most of the old tunes were renamed, format extension was renamed from .MP3 to .mp3 (but the format and the content are the same). This add-on was called "Sacred Underworld".


The screenshots were taken from Russian version of the game.

The music tracks remind the style of Diablo (W32), but the amount of them is bigger several times. There are also memorable tracks, such as Mascarell. Mostly of them are eerie or gloomy, but some of them are encouraging.


The tunes (some actual names are unknown) were named after the filenames of the times in the newest version of the game - 2.28 (released after 28th of July 2005).

The recording was created simply by converting MP3 to OGG and uploading it.
