Description

In Talisman, an evil and powerful genie is destroying the Persian Empire. When the game starts, you are in prison and about to be executed. With your head already on the chopping block, the execution is halted by order of King Darius. He grants you freedom when you destroy the evil genie. He sends you on your journey with a bag of gold and the vizier Abu who will keep an eye on you. Talisman is an interactive fiction with graphics that allows for full-sentence parsing. The packaging includes an "Arabian Express" credit card and an advertisement leaflet from Muhammad's Market, containing ads for flying carpets.

Trivia

Penguins

Most Penguin Software (or Polarware) games contain a humorous little remark about Penguins on the back cover of their games. In this case it is "Penguins vote by majority rule."
