    NOW WE GET TO HEAR MALCOLM'S SIDE OF THE STORY....

    When last we left Malcolm, the wicked Court Jester from the original LEGEND of KYRANDIA, he had been accused of murdering the King and Queen. After much ado, he was turned into stone by Brandon, restoring peace and harmony to the land.

    All the while, Malcolm has spent many an hour in his statuesque form, plotting and planning a way to get even with Brandon and those of Kyrandia who betrayed him. MALCOLM'S REVENGE opens as lightning strikes and he breaks free from his stony prison. Now it's his turn for vindication, or at least to set the record straight.

    Created by Westwood Studios, the development team behind such smash hits as DUNE II, LANDS of LORE, and YOUNG MERLIN, MALCOLM'S REVENGE features the same easy interface and sense of humor that made THE LEGEND of KYRANDIA and its sequel, THE HAND of FATE, smash hits.

    Players will guide Malcolm through his escape and capture, to the Ends of the World, into the Underworld, and finally back to wreck havoc on Kyrandia. To accompish this, the player must use disguises, toys, and whatever bits of magic he can aquire.

    KYRANDIA BOOK 3: MALCOLM'S REVENGE surpasses its predecessors with lots of cool graphics and movie-like cutscenes. The lush landscapes and three dimensional backdrops are enhanced with vibrant colors and many of the same characters introduced in the first two episodes. MALCOLM'S REVENGE is as much a treat for the ears as it is for the eyes, complete with a whole new soundtrack and fully digitized speech.

Back of Box - DOS (German):
    Virgin Interactive Entertainment präsentiert das bisher spritzigste, schönste und ambitionierteste Projekt der Westwood Studios. Malcom's Revenge mit seinen reich gestalteten 3D-Landschaften und der klaren digitalisierten Sprache im gesamten Spiel ist die dritte Folge der berühmten Kyrandia-Serie - und die erste, die speziell für CD-ROM entwickelt wurde. Als Bestrafung für den Mord an Kyrandias Königspaar wurde Malcolm, der hinterhältige Hofnarr, in Stein verwandelt. Jahre später erhält er durch einen unglücklichen Zufall seine Freiheit wieder und verlangt nach Rache - bei deren Ausführung Sie ihm helfen.

    Setzen Sie Zauberkraft, List, Tücke und geschickte Verkleidungen ein, um die Insel Kyrandia und noch vieles mehr zu erkunden, vom Ende der Welt bis zur Unterwelt. Enthüllen Sie die Geheimnisse der Katzeninsel und der Wunderhöhle, und lernen Sie eine bunte Palette schrulliger Charaktere kennen, wie z. B. kampflustige Piraten, den trotteligen Fish Cream Jerk und die tote Königin Katherine.
