The World has fallen into the Dark Ages. The Evil Forces of the Necromancer are
creeping to every last corner of the ancient land that was once the powerful
domain of the Great Sorcerers. You are the last free Sorcerer, all the others
have, one by one, been entrapped by the hideous evil that abounds.
You must work quickly travelling every corner of the Kingdom, searching out
your fellow Sorcerers. Only when they are all released can you combine your
forces and overthrow the Necromancer.
The many parts of the land you visit hold certain objects which may or may not
be of use. Some will help and some will deceive, some possess strange
qualities. The scenery is not all it appears in places and careful searching
may reveal secret passages.
The freed Sorcerers will unite in the Sanctuary where they will wait for the
golden day when you make your way there to join them in your exalted place and
defeat the Necromancer once and for all.

starts his quest.
Left <-----+-----> travels
Note: Sorcerer descends
As you move from room to room you will encounter various objects, some useful,
some essential and some deadly!
To pick up an object you must position the sorcerer over it and press the fire
button. To use a weapon i.e. killing an evil demon or shooting your magic
spells, press the fire button again. You may swap objects but you can never
drop objects on their own. You will find out by experience that you need
certain objects to allow you to set in action chains of events and allow you
passage on your journey.
On the screen you will find depicted;
the room you are in, a description of the room and a description of what you
are carrying. Also shown is your energy level and a visual illustration of time
left to complete your task.
You lose energy each time you come into contact with one of the evil forces, so
try to avoid them whenever possible. There is a way of renewing your energy but
as a Great Sorcerer we're sure its not beyond your powers to work out how to do
You have a set time in which to complete your journey. This is illustrated by a
book that will appear to crumble away with the passage of time. You must free
all of the trapped sorcerers before the book disappears or the evil Necromancer
will have succeeded in his dark ways.
You have 40 screens to travel in your quest. Remember that the Necromancer has
not made it easy for you and you will need to use strategy and cunning to
unlock some of his doors of darkness.
STARTING THE GAME
You will start the game randomly from any one of five locations.
After your journey has ended you will, if you have travelled far enough, be
allowed to put your name into the Hi-Score table.
PAUSING THE GAME
To enable you to take a breather (or to answer the 'phone!), you may pause the
game by pressing the DELETE (DEL) key. To restart the game, press fire button
on the joystick.
