THE TWO parts of Arrow of Death, each sold separately, form the sequel to the tale of the Golden Baton. This magic object, which once brought luck to the heroic world it presides over, has now become tainted by the evil of the sorcerer Xerdon. Crops wither, the land is sick, the people murmur.

In Part One you must gird your loins and head up country to seek out the pieces of an arrow - the only weapon which will destroy the magician provided it is made of the correct materials. You begin your journey in the deserted palace where the baton throbs with malevolence and despair.

The second program is a game in its own right and needs no data from the first. In this part you have found the pieces and must now take them to the only fletcher who can make the Arrow in the correct, magical, way. He has unfortunately already been captured by the agents of the evil one, so don't expect it to be easy.

The games have similar styles and feature graphics for many locations. You can switch between the text description and the picture by using the ENTER key - though the instructions don't tell you that, which may confuse the unwary.
