This is an all text adventure, but don't let that put you off! Your imagination paints far better pictures than your Spectrum can.
You are Blade the Warrior, a macho-man who is an expert with weapons and has some knowledge of magic. You are to follow the trail of Mazar the Wizard in seeking out the Black Witch and defeating her.
You start at a wall with an open door. You are attacked by a horde of bloodthirsty Orcs, mythical birds. I must have been killed a dozen times and, boy, are those Orcs bloodthirsty!
In the forest lurk goblins, ogres, magic trees and weapons, spells and caves and the occasional human body or limb just lying about. There is a tremendous sense of evil, suspense and magic hanging over the whole game, and the descriptions really did conjure up some marvellous pictures in my mind.
This adventure isn't easy. but you can write for a hint sheet which helps without spoiling the game. Highly recommended and excellent value for money, there's just one moan; why the odd spalling mistook?
