The Crack of Doom

The Crack of Doom Screenshots

Apple II version

The game begins here
An uneven staircase
Sam isn't able to pass this way at the moment
An ominous looking road
Descending into Mordor
Wandering around; Sam can go west or north from here
At the top of a hill
Uh oh, I think this means game over

First screen
Decided to go to the tower

The statues don't make you feel more comfortable in Mordor.
Putting the ring on in Mordor was a bad idea.
