Your task is to rescue the Princess Lalena from the clutches of the evil
Dark Lord. Progress is made by finding gold, using it to obtain keys, extra
weapons, shields and Moontorc parts, and giving the completed Moontorc to
the ferocious Tollmen that guard the exits to each of the 4 levels of the
GOLD will be found in the treasure chests located
around each level. All gold collected can be used to purchase items from the
SHOPS will sell you (if you have enough gold) Moontorc
parts, shields, spells, axes, keys and food, although not all shops sell all
of these items. To enter a shop, simply walk up to the shopkeeper (Druid,
Jester or Witch). Once in the shop use UP/DOWN and
FIRE to SELECTL and BUY
the items that you want (and can afford).
MOONTORC parts, when bought, will be shown on the knapsack
page. 3 parts are needed to complete the Moontorc and allow you to pass the
Tollman at the end of the level.
DOORS will block your path or stop you from reaching
items that may be vital to your progress. The foors are colour-coded green,
blue and yellow and can only be opened if you are holding the appropriate
KEYS can be bought in the shops or, on occasion, found
hidden around the landscape. To open a door stand next to it, select
'Knapsack' and use the appropriate coloured key. If the correct key is used
the door wil open. If the wrong key is used it is lost from play.
The location of the doors and the purchase of keys is vital to
your progress. Always buy plenty when you have the opportunity.
SPELLS AND AXES can be bought from certain of the
shops. To use them, select the correct icon and press fire
(SPACE). Each will work against CERTAIN
types of enemy, but which one to choose? That is for you to discover. The
SWORD will kill most enemies if timed correctly.
SHIELDS when bought are automatically worn. Whilst
shield strength remains, they will deflect enemy fire.
FOOD when bought or found, will replenish your energy.
KNAPSACK can hold up to 4 items plus Moontorc parts. To
examine the contents of your knapsack, select knapsack icon. Use
UP/DOWN to SELECT item required and
FIRE to USE.
If for some reason you want to restart the game i.e. if you can't obtain
the correct key to open a door... select KNAPSACK and
press the G key. The game will then move to the game over
