Dark Ages is the first shareware game to support the Ad Lib and Sound Blaster
music cards. It features a movie-style soundtrack of eight unique songs and
themes. It also has sound effects that don't require an Ad Lib (or Sound
Blaster) card to enjoy.
The EGA/VGA graphics are colorful and stunning, with fast scrolling screens and high-speed animation. Dark Ages has such demanding graphics and animation that it requires an 80286 (or 80386) machine to run at proper speed, otherwise it may run too slowly. Therefore, Dark Ages may only run on the newer, faster PCs and compatibles.
In the game, you're the Prince of the Great Kingdom, who as a child watched your father die at the hands of Garth, a power mad warlord with uncanny magical abilities. Garth sent you away from the Great Kingdom to be raised as a peasant, and to never fulfill your destiny as the future King.
But Garth made a terrible mistake. The very peasant he choose to raise you was once the Kingdom's greatest hero, long since retired and forgotten. And over the years you were raised as a warrior and as champion of justice, and the time has come for you to claim your heritage, and free the Great Kingdom from the dark age of Garth.
