The EGA version of the game is mostly like the VGA one. Apart from changing a few encounters, the main difference is that this one lacks the mouse driven interface, making it cumbersome to play thanks to the Sierra text parser.

Hero season is on! Having graduated from Famous Adventurer's Correspondence School you pack your stuff and seek the nearest place to exercise your valour and might in pursuit of a new respectful title.
