This is another of Sierra's Hi-Res adventures for the Apple II. The game is set in ancient Greece where the player needs to locate a golden fleece. To accomplish your mission, you get a crew together and board the king's boat, then set sail for two islands.

Commands you have to type in take the form of a verb-noun sequence, and are outlined in this walkthrough in bold type. Directions are also abbreviated since you don't type the whole word in.

You start in the town, standing on a road. Go S and W (x3) to the castle's entry hall. TALK GUARD and he will ask whether you are Ulysses. Say YES to be escorted to the throne room where the king is waiting. BOW to him to be given your mission. Go E (x2), N, W to the store. There are several items you need to buy here.
