Long ago, monsters were set loose in the city of Skara Brae by Mangar the Dark, a malevolent mage. Now you create a band of six adventurers to seek out and conquer the monstrous creatures that lurk within. Choose each hero's class: Warrior (weapons expert), Rogue (sneaky fighter), Hunter (ninja assassin), Wizard (21 spells), or Sorcerer (22 spells). And the Bard, a wandering minstrel. Though each hero is strong in battle, the Bard's special weapon is his magical music which has devestating effects on your fearsome foes. Hone your combat skills through 16 complex maze levels as you face dragons, trolls, nomads, and other hideous creatures.
