You must move your man through three horizontal areas; top, a simple maze infested with spiders to get to a door into the middle section, which is the river full of prahnas, and then to the beach, to pass through the lower area where the dead spirits lurk. If you make it through, the exit is guarded by a shrouded figure whose touch is death. It's a simple set up and would not be interesting if it weren't for the fact that it's not easy. The screens are always the same but with more denizens as you go along. Keyboard positions are good, the graphics neat and excellent eight directional movement. No joystick option.
