Old first-person computer game with zombies a

Specs: MS-Dos?
Hello! I am trying to find the name of (or an online-version of) an old first-person computer game with zombies and bats in a graveyard, with spooky music. You started in the graveyard and zombies would loom up from behind tombstones - I think you killed them with some sort of magic ray, as if you were a wizard with powers. You never saw yourself - there was a screen with a window for the action - looking at it as if seeing the situation with your own eyes, then there were two status bars for 'health/life' and power (for the magic ray). There was also some sort of radar thing that told you in something was coming behind you, etc. You wandered through the graveyard, along corridors in an old castle-style place - overhead was the night sky, past grey walls of large stone. Sometimes bats would swoop down and they would be the warning that something big was close - like a door, or a monster. There was spooky music that accompanied the game - you could turn it off, I think. But it was repetitive and creepy. The graphics were pretty simple - I think the game was about 1989-1995 - I don't think it could have been earlier or later. I am sure it ran from MS-DOS and that we got it free with some sort of PC Magazine on a floppy disk (the kind that came with tonnes of bitmaps for your Corel drawings, etc.). Does anyone have a clue what this game was?

It kinda sounds like BLOOD but that was from the later 90's. A couple of more "wizard-y" games from around the same time were Heretic & it's sequel, Hexen.

Thanks very much, but I found it in the end - I looked through the screenshot archive on http://www.dosgamesarchive.com/scre... - and saw it! The Catacomb Abyss! I've looked on youtube but cannot find a clip of the creepy opening music anywhere. Maybe I'll download a version just so I can hear that spooky tune again!
