Instructions


Wishing Well

WISHING WELL

Try your hand at being a wizard in this clever fairy tale arcade game devised by Den Miller

WISHING WELL This is an unusual Basic/machine code hybrid sideways scrolling arcade game, in which you play the part of Haggleton's town wizard, Duffa. The jealous wizard Aargh has stolen 21 wishing scrolls from the town and hidden them down seven wells. It is your task to retrieve them.

There are two scenes to be played. The first is your journey to each well and this is set against a sideways scrolling mountain background. You start on the left-hand side of the screen and make your way to the right. Aargh casts evil spells at you which can be avoided by ducking under or leaping over them, or neutralised by casting your own spells.

Once at the well, you descend into the depths. Unfortunately, it is so dark you can't even see a hand in front of your face. Working blind, you try to locate the wish scrolls by trial and error.

Try moving up, if that doesn't work do down, or left or right. Fortunately, you can cast a spell of light which leaves a strange green glow wherever you've been, which makes it easy to retrace your steps should you come to a dead end.

With seven wishing wells and two arcade scenes for each well, this game should keep you busy for quite some time.
