Activision Catalog 1984:
    Mischievous as children will be, Rhonda scampered far ahead into the caverns and quickly slipped from view. Last evening's warnings from the local villagers still echoed through my head like tribal drums. I quickened my pace. And fell. A dizzying blur of tunnels, cave creatures and what seemed like treasures filled the air. Then - the freezing river. My only thoughts as I gasped and struggled - Rhonda, lost, darkness.
