Underwurlde Ad Blurbs (Commodore 64)
THE BLACK VOID
Long dark paths have I travelled, through caverns and hidden labyrinths, my path grows darker... Deathly chill as I approach the "Well of Evil"... forewarned by lost and lonely travellers of the forces guarding the UNDERWURLDE.
I approach, fix my rope, and with a firm leap, swing down into the depths of THE BLACK VOID.
The still air rushes past as I descend down into the dark dank hollow, disturbing the dust, a debris of long-since fought battles and struggles.
WINGED HARPIES AND GARGOYLES
Silent fossilised creatures stir, emerging from centuries of hibernation, awakened by my echoing gropes and thuds. Their dormant evil, hungry from ages past sparks itself into life.
Suddenly the whole cavern erupts into a scurrying slithering shadowy grave of beating wings and desperate gnashing jaws.
Winged Harpies soar and swoop down with beaks wide and talons spread. Hungry monsters and reptiles desperate not to lose their first meal in eons, batter and punish me until I can take no more, waiting for me to fail.
SIRENS OF THE UNDERWURLDE
All about are strange sparkling plants "Sirens of the Underwurlde", waving their poisonous gnashing deadly tendrils, beckoning to their vision of hideous ugliness. To touch their sticky putrid foliage would mean certain death.
ALL YOU NEED IS THERE TO TAKE LOCATE THE WEAPONS, THEN TO MAKE A JOURNEY ON IF YOU WOULD DARE TO FIND THE DEVIL IN HIS LAIR THE LONG DARK PALACE, SEEK YOU WILL THE GEMS YOUR POCKETS WILL NOT FILL THO` ENERGY THEY`LL MAKE YOU FAST AND GARGOYLES THEN YOU WILL GET PAST UP AND UP, THE JOURNEY`S SLOW SO DOWN IS FIRST THE WAY TO GO
The old travellers words still singing in my head.
In the distance the low rumbling of UNDERWURLDE volcanos can be heard. Huge plumes of poisonous sulphurous devilish gases roll along the caver roofs. As the enormous bubbles of inert plasma ascends the natural chimney stack causeways, eroded and forged from centuries of ancient fires and flames.
My journey has only just begun. I must travel on through this deadly labyrinth of the UNDERWURLDE to find the ULTIMATE place of darkness, in which lies the way to my escape.
