This game first appeared sometime before Christmas on the Commodore 64 and generally received favourable reviews.
Don't be deceived into thinking that Sultan Saladin is some form of cold and healthy crinkly green meal served with dried fruit. He is in fact a very unsavoury character from the Tales of the Arabian Nights who practised the same nasty habits as the black widow spider only with the roles reversed as a result, the Sultan's brides last a short time! Prince Imrahil's sister has been seized by the Sultan and is taken to Baghdad. It's up to you to help him rescue the girl.
The journey to Baghdad begins aboard one of the Sultan's ships where you must collect, in order, the golden jugs each bearing one of the letters in the word AR- A-B-I-A-N. As you scamper about the rigging a multitude of nasty monsters from above and below the water attack you.
From the ship it's up river by raft to a great cavern where you encounter Al-Khemized and his dreadful genies. While you ' re in the cavern perhaps you could just have a quick jog round and put the jugs in order then you can move on; to the desert. The desert scene, like the river, is to be noted for its lack of jugs, it's just you against the nasties.
Next stop, the city gates, but mind out for the arrows and boulders as you sort out those jugs. Among the platforms of the next scene, the garden, you find some more golden jugs and this time the arrows are small fry compared to the nastie genies.
At last the Palace; more golden jugs but don't forget to duck and weave as you sort them out. After the Palace you pick up Anitra and with her in tow you're only a magic carpet's flight from home, just mind out for the arrows and those nasty birds.
