So, did I get this right: When you kill a guard it drops a helmet which you have to dispose of in the twister or he will respawn? Sounds a bit contrived… but also rather cool.


Yes, and i remember doing mass cleaning in the castle, by killing all the guards i saw on my way and discarding them like this, so that they would never bother me again :)

Btw: Can't quite put my finger on it, but somehow the graphics remind of the Game Boy. Maybe it's just the yellow colours and the low resolution.


Well, it surely does look outdated today, but somehow this game gave me different feelings back in my time. I'm not really sure what it is. Perhaps it's the atmosphere which somehow stimulates your imagination and mentally enhances the poorly developed scenery of the game. I'm not sure. Eitherways, it's not a typical spectrum isometric game as it would always get out of line somehow, and it was noticed not only by me, but many spectrum veterans.

For example, you can never permanently kill a guard, unless you pick up his helmet, which remains after you killed him and feed it to the nearest twister.

Dark forces came upon once happy and prosperous Land of Fairlight! You, a brave and daring adventurer named Isvar, driven by his destiny have been summoned into the castle, which was once controlled by benevolent King Avars, but is now empty of its former household and filled with foul entities of diverse kinds, and the king has been long banished (and probably dead). There are only rumors that there's still one member of the royal family left in the castle, Segar the Sorcerer, whose days are countless, for his knowledge and skills have granted him immortal life, but he is now imprisoned deep within the compound. Your task is to find and set him free, for only he can bring the light and felicity back to the land and restore its former order.
