Title screen is copied from the box cover, which features artwork by Boris Vallejo.
You have been dumped into the slums. This is the first screen you see.
Pop-ups appear throughout the city, telling you things you need to know.
If you try to turn around, you meet this pop-up at the gate.
The guards' job is to contain you, and all the other lowlife, no-name riffraff.
Meeting the locals will give you appreciation for the guard viewpoint about the slumdwellers (that includes you, too!)
The residents move in packs, or gangs, and attack you.
There is a place where you can get healed though, and the bars are filled with ideas for how to escape...
