Back of Box - Windows (UK / DICE release):

    COULD THIS BE THE TIME TO BREAK THE DEADLOCK?

    ARE YOU THE ONE TO FULFILL THE PROPHECY?

    The Purification is near..

    Between the worlds of Light and Darkness, humans have struggled for nearly seven thousand years to put an end to the suffering. Once every thousand years, a gate opens between the waking world and the realm of dream time, offering the opportunity to create a new future for the next millennium. Six times in recorded human history this has occurred and The Prophets have said that life, as we know it, will end on May 5, 2000. You, the chosen one, must rescue humanity from damnation, redeem the prophetess Angel and stop Gar Hob, The Dark Lord of the Seventh Millennium from plunging the world into a thousand years of darkness.

Unknown Source:
    Of Light and Darkness - the prophecy is a real-time adventure with three game-play levels plus a wickedly challenging, final confrontation with Gar Hob - The Dark Lord of the Seventh Millennium. Be forewarned! Each game level offers new challenges, story surprises, and hosts of increasingly powerful apparitions that will steal you blind before hurtling you into the abyss.

    To stop the apocalypse, you must redeem all the Dark Lord's apparitions in the Village of the Damned before the Clock of Judgment strikes zero. To accomplish this, you must learn to use the Orbs of Light, Trans-Portals, and Apparition's Earthly Artifacts found in the Village. Once you have redeemed all the Apparitions in the Village, you must discover the way to the Dark Isle, defeat Gar Hob, and release the Prophetess Angel.
