For it is your destiny that you have been chosen to locate the daughter of The Nawab and free her from the terrors of the darkness. Use your Power wisely for you mind is a weapon - fight when you must - hide when you can - but find The Key and Garr will be destroyed. A fully animated Arcade Adventure, Questor will test the mind as well as your reflexes. You are placed in a world which you must explore and map if you are to stand any chance of success. Locations are reproduced in stunning full colour graphics and new dangers are waiting around every corner. Expect the unexpected!

Game Play

You control Questor around a labyrinth who floats on a magic carpet. There are various nasty to avoid - some kill you instantly, others take energy away from you. There are plenty of objects and puzzles to solve to proceed further into the game. You will find entrances to other parts of the game blocked by barriers or beings. You need a certain object in order to gain access. One object (magic pearls for example) gives you limited firepower to clear some of the nasties. Loads and loads of red-herring objects! A fun little game.
