Advertising BlurbsAdvertisement in Computer Gaming World, March 1991:
"They Don't Get Much Bigger Than This."
"800 locations. 300 objects. Over 100 hours of frighteningly realistic gameplay. Fantasy role playing just doesn't get any bigger! And who better to judge 'big' than moi, your little ol' Mistress Of The Dark - Elvira."
"Of course, if you're really into heavy fantasy role-playing, you know size isn't everything, right? Well, rest assured - my fiendish fantasy has gobs of graphic sizzle, clever puzzles, real-time combat and a nifty little point-and-click interface. Heck, it's so easy to play it's scary."
"And if you long for a big storyline, mine's got a bigger plot than the one they dug for King Tut."
"Creep in and around an enormous castle, with who-knows-what lurking around every clammy corner. Interact with over 100 sinister characters, cast umpteen spells, mix gallons of potent potions. All in an effort to find a hidden chest that'll stop a demonic queen from ruling the world!"
"So imagine. Exploring over 800 dark places and spending countless hours helping me find my chest. Did I say this was gonna be big fun, or what?"

Can somebody help me find my chest?
No really, I'm serious! See, I've been remodeling this cold and moldy castle, right? So how was I to know that I'd wake up Queen Emelda -- especially since the old bat croaked hundreds of years ago!
Anyway, Queenie-baby wants to come back from the dead and rule the world -- and the only way I can stop her and her monstrous minions is to find a secret scroll of spells, hidden in a big chest somewhere in this huge, 800-room castle.
Won't you help your poor innocent little Mistress?
Yours cruelly -- Elvira
