Front of Box - SNES (US):
Here's a brainy idea: Pick up Mystic Quest(tm), the world's first role-playing game especially designed for the entry-level player.
Easy-to-read icons put your head in the game immediately. Skull-tingling action keeps it there. Then there's constantly changing 16-bit characters and enough heady combat to scramble your synapses.
And a free strategy book offer comes in every box.
All this for just $39.99.
Hey, you don't need to be a brain specialist to see what a smart deal this is.

THINK YOU CAN SAVE THE WORLD?
Here's your chance to play the world's first role-playing game for the entry-level player.
The planet is dying. Cold winds blow. Fires rage. Trees are withering. In other words, it's brutal out there.
Only you can stop the Dark King from consuming the light from the Crystals of Earth. But don't think it'll be a walk in the park. You're up against the sleaziest of slimebags, the evilest of ecto-scum -- we're talking serious monsters here.
This isn't your basic shoot-'em-to-smithereens kiddy game either. You'll have you think your way out of some tough spots. Think you can handle that?
Free strategy guide available for a limited time with mail-in coupon. See inside for details.
