The Story So Far
Winter Solstice. The shortest day of the year. The symbolic death and rebirth of nature. This year however, something sinister has occurred.
The Crow, a mysterious race of half-man, half-bird necromancers has stolen the sacred bough of mistletoe from the ancient stone triangle. It is the mystic key to keeping nature in balance. Without it there will be no new dawn and the world will remain in darkness, thus amplifying the power of the Crow.
How To Play
Your goal is to penetrate the Tower of the Crow, retrieve the sacred mistletoe and return it to the Grove of Megaliths. This is a turn-based game. Each move requires you to return the joystick to the home (unmoved) position before you can make a new move.
The top portion of the screen displays your current surroundings. The layout of the world is the same every game, but the locations of certain things within the world will be randomly set each time.
The center area of the screen displays your current inventory or text options when you encounter a monster. You may move the joystick left/right to cycle through the options. Again, you must return the joystick to home each time. Press the fire button to select an option.
The lower portion of the screen displays your Hit Points (HP) and Spell Points (SP). Hit Points are your health. If it goes to 0, you die and the game is over. Spell points are required for spell casting.
