    Due to the overwhelming amount of positive feedback we received after the release of the first Apprentice, we decided to continue the series, if only to explain that weird dream about Lord Ironcrow.

    The second chapter in the Apprentice series begins where the original left off. As the story continues, the black horse of war looms over the land, with the ominous Lord Ironcrow at the reins. Because Pib’s apprenticeship makes him vulnerable to the military draft, attaining wizardhood becomes imperative.

    From ocean diving to winning at the races, this adventure explores the land of Willowbean that lies beyond the Wizard’s hill. New characters range from the Book Wyrm, a dragon-like being with a taste for literature, to Seacookie, the puniest contender at the centaur races.

    - Improved GUI, right-click action cycle
    - Over twice as many playable locations as the original game
    - Roughly 50 pages of in-game dialogue
    - Over 25 minutes of in-game mp3 music
    - Nearly 2000 frames of animation
    - Yet another secret bonus puzzle
    - HTML documentation
