ZX Spectrum version

This is the game load screen. It displays for quite a while after the game has loaded while the game plays music. It goes when the player presses 0 (zero)
This is a sort of game menu. The player moves the cursor via number keys, 8 - down, 9 - up, 6 left, 7 right and 0 to select
In one of the houses is a mysterious old man. The player must use the number keys to select an option from the menu
This is what is displayed when the 'Discuss' option is selected, it seems like a bit of a disappointment ...
Thankfully there's more. It seems as though Uncle is up to his tricks again.
To exit the conversation screen This player had to point to the 'X' at the top of the menu and select it
This is the inventory screen, its accessed from the same menu as the dialogue
Selecting the yellow house just off centre of the screen. The game plays a little animation in the top left window and moves a small pale blue dot along the road to the destination
The big yellow house is the players ancestral home, bit of a dump now though. The window in the top right shows the player moving about a map of the location
So the only good bit of this castle is the tower, all the player must do is try to find the door
Once in the tower the scene changes to a view of the landscape. Here the player can review the armies raised so far and issue a command to go to war
So there are zero armies available, he won't be going to war just yet then
As he leaves the player is attacked by an assassin
This is the combat screen. Using the numeric keys the player must attack or block the assassins sword
The upper bar is the player, the lower is the assassin
Looks like dear old uncle is behind this
