This is a game targeting the Commodore 64/128, both PAL and NTSC.
How far would you go to help a friend?
When your best friend Orc (an orc, coincidentally) didn't show up for tea after a couple of weeks, it was pretty clear something had happened to him.
Armed with your trusty sword, enter the dangerous
World of Magica where things
are not always what they seem, including you: a goblin with good character!
This is a mission to find what happened to your friend, starting deep in the Black Forest and exploring 5 different areas, from the perilous Rocky Mountains to the dark corridors of Bluestone Keep.
You can watch a short teaser video of the game.
