Halls of the Things 2008/2011/2014 Remake

Halls of the Things is a classic game for the ZX Spectrum created by:
Martin Horsley, Neil Mottershead and Simon Brattel (Design Design).

From Wikipedia:

In this game you have to guide your hero through seven floors of a tower, searching for seven rings.
Each floor is a complex maze of corridors and rooms. Once you have the rings you must then find
the magical key hidden in the dungeon, this key opens the drawbridge which will allow you to escape.
To hinder your progress, the things will attack you, but you are armed with a sword, arrows, fireballs
and lightning to aid you in your quest.
