About the Story

"Encounter the forces of black magic as you roam around an old 18th century monastery. See all the evil locations in this spooky adventure in full hi-res detail. If you like suspense, you’ll love searching out and destroying the evil in this classic tale."

"Once upon a time, in a previous life, my friend, Steve O’Dea and I developed a series of six graphic adventures for the Radio Shack Color Computer. These adventures were marketed by Mark Data Products and were considered rather revolutionary for their time. The adventures stored all images compressed in memory and were usable from cassette based systems as well as from diskette. These games were all written in MC6809 assembly language and assembled with the fantastic Micro Works MACRO-80C assembler. To this day this is one of the best assemblers I’ve ever used. A little known fact is that these adventure games were also ported to the IBM/PC using a CGA graphic screen. These versions entered the market too late and did not take full advantage of the available hardware and were not widely distributed."
