As Baron Baldric, you
are charged with keeping peace for all the common folk of the land. But when the grand
Lazarine Towers are overcome with dark forces and creatures, casting an evil shadow over
the land, you must wield your somewhat magical staff and set out to set things right.
(Frankly, you don't want the job, but there's currently a shortage of young warrior types
around.) The Baron is a lovable character who will win your heart with his many animations
and mannerisms. But beware, this not-so-young hero guy can still kick a little bootie if
he has to! He wields a magic staff like nobody's business.
30 different monsters! They crawl, slither, fly, roll, hop
and anything else you can imagine. There are new scenery graphics and monsters in each of
the six castles/episodes. Play with the mouse, keyboard or joystick. Supports higher
resolution of 320 x 240 VGA. Ability to practice any level for a good preview.
Complex character; Baron Baldric can jump, push, pull, flip switches, open doors, become
poisoned, and climb. Game map to see where you are at all times. Many different weapon
spells including fireballs and venom spells. Find coins to buy more spells.
