The game features artwork throughout by John Pierard. Pierard is a well known illustrator who has drawn for Marvel Comics and Asimov's Magazine.
thumbnail
The game was written by the same authors who wrote the fantasy book, "Dragonworld," first published in 1979. The book is frequently compared with the "Hobbit" as a fantasy.
thumbnail
For those who haven't read the book, there is a nice introduction to set the mood. You begin as a young hero, Amsel of Fandora. You are friend to a dragon, the "Last Dragon."
thumbnail
Now your friend is hurt...and you, a mere boy, are the only one who has been given the information needed to ride to the rescue. But, you'll need help.
thumbnail
The game leaves you about to sail off to the rescue. I have heard this game rated as not being hard--but even so, it is hard enough to have cheat hints published on the internet.
thumbnail
I haven't finished the game yet, because it IS challenging. The hints are there, but that takes the fun out of a text adventure. Byron Preiss and Micheal Reaves are good authors.
