You are the apprentice of the great Wizard, sent in the unholy lands to recover the Black Rombo from the hands of the evil mage's castle. In your journey through the lands, you'll encounter several creatures in evil mage's service. Do not think twice before sending them to meet their creator; these are damned souls, lost forever in the realm from where the evil mage came and transformed an once healthy place to a dead zone where only the darkest entities enter.
This isn't only your test to prove yourself worthy of the great Wizard's trust, but also the beginning of a great quest to restore the scourged land to its former status.
Rombo is a first person action game where your point is to find the Black Rombo after battling with the evil mage's minions. Your weapon is your fireball magic spell, which requires mana to cast. Mana potions can be found around the levels, but your mana will refill as the time passes.
To finish each map you have to find its exit, which is always heavily guarded and usually behind some locked areas. To unlock areas you must find the appropriate keys. If you stand in front of a door that requires a key you do not have, the key will flash at the top left corner of the screen.
To increase your score, you can pick up treasure items which can be found around the levels. However the best treasures are hidden in secret areas - these can be revealed by going near the wall where the area is and clicking on it (the cursor will become a hand as shown below). Also killing monsters increases your score. At the bottom part of the screen you can see how many monsters are alive in the level.
Below is a table with the keys you can use with Rombo:

Q/E or Space+Left/Right or Space+A/D
Turn 180 degrees (quick turn)
Tab, F6 or Page Up (depends on browser)
