CAN YOU DISCOVER THE SECRET OF
TO OTHER WORLDS?
Your late uncle has left a legacy of mystery and adventure in the decrepit old building he willed to you. The building houses a fascinating array of strange weaponry and bizarre artifacts, but these are as nothing compared with the potential treasure alluded to in a yellowing journal you find in the office of Uncle Bert's "Weapons Shop." If the journal is to be believed, worlds of infinite treasure, adventure, and danger.
But, it isn't going to be easy. Bert didn't tell you where the Gateway is, or how to find it. But there are clues - the worlds of adventure beyond the Gateway can be yours, if you can decipher those clues. Then, all you have to do is embark on your Quest... and survive!
TEXT PLUS GRAPHICS
A brilliantly conceived story by author Michael A. Banks combines stunning graphics, implemented by professional artist Michael Golding, to give you the best of both worlds.
1. A full text adventure with a complex plot, interaction with strange and clever creatures, and intricate puzzles, all brought to life with vividly descriptive prose.
2. A game worthy of being called a graphic adventure, made possible by the Macintosh's superb graphic capabilities brought to the brink of reality through the talent of a professional artist.
No more expensive long distance phone calls or the extra cost of purchasing a hint book. With one click of the mouse hundreds of multi-level hints are available. Whether expert or first-time adventurer, you can feel the satisfaction of reaching the ultimate solution of GATEWAY.
Click the mouse once on HELP and you're presented with several pages of instructions and suggestions on playing Gateway.
At any time you can take a "snapshot" of your position in the game and save it to disk to be restored at a later time. So, if you're thinking there's danger close by or you just want to take a break, save the game and come back whenever you want and start exactly where you left off. You can save as many unique games as you have disks. Up to 150 per Macintosh disk!
You can communicate with the game in full English sentences in a separate command entry window with full editing capabilities. Also available are pull down menus for the most commonly used commands. You can also "MOVE" in the game with a click of the mouse on the movement compass.
