This is an adventure game which virtually demands that four people play it. No provision is made for the computer to take over any of the roles, andplayers taking on more than one role each defeats one of the objects of the game, which is intrigue.

Each player has to approach the screen in turn to choose helpers, and to buy objects which they think may help them. Set in the environs of an old castle, each player in turn has to try to find an object, and a word. Possession of the right object, and the right word, should win the game. Even allowing for the fact that I took on all four roles, and therefore knew what was going on. I found the game slow.

My personal verdict has to be - nothing very spectacular in the way of adventure games.
