Description

Arxel Tribe's previous series, Pilgrim, is continued in this new adventure series, which they have coined simply "Legend".

You play through the eyes of Ay-Sayf, a former Knight Templar and warrior during the Crusades, as he seeks Simon, the false prophet. The game takes place in the 13th Century in the Eastern Hemisphere. Explore Jebus, a city of peace and harmony, bargain with the sellers in the marketplace of Jerusalem, and visit the Palace of Uvak Khan, an imperial ruler. Fight with demons and spiritual warriors during Ay-Sayf's quest in this point-and-click adventure.

The original release contained what Dreamcatcher later called "Part 1 - The Prophet's Trail" with its 2 CDs. Their second release was named the same but included 4 CDs - the original Arxel Tribe game plus "Part 2" - Secrets of the Alamut. Each game has to be installed separately.
