Game Play

You control an apprentice wizard around a labyrinth hunting for 10 special rings. In order to get these rings, you must navigate the hazards and traps that lay in wait. You are armed with lightning bolts, but beware you have a limited supply of these. There are plenty of objects scattered throughout which are needed to give to a wizard in order to get access to different areas (usually there is a ring nearby). Different wizards want different objects so it is up to you to figure this out. There are also secret passageways through the brick work. Watch out for fire! Collect all 10 rings to complete the game. Greensleeves plays throughout. Joystick or Keyboard.

This game is often compared to Sorcery - as being the inspiration for this.
