I never did believe in Ghosts or Monsters. . .
Not until now, not until the Main doors of the Castle closed and locked themselves behind me. . .
There`s no key here!!!
HELP!!!. . .
HEELLLPPPP!!!!. . .
I can see strange shapes materialising on the other side of the room. . .
Evil eyes glaring at me. . .
Footsteps. . .
Somethings coming down the corridor. . .
Something large. . .
Something cold. . .
I must run quickly. . .
QUICKLY. . .
HHEELLLLPPPP!!!!. . .
I must escape before it`s too late!!!!
Now that you have been trapped in the evil haunted Castle,
your object is to find the hidden Golden Key of A.C.G. and
escape via your only exit, the Main Doors.
The Castle consists of 5 floors, including the `Atic` and the caverns,
which contain countless rooms. Within the many rooms you may find
furniture, food, drinks, objects, Ghosts, Ghouls and monsters.
Eat and drink sparingly so that you do not deplete your food supply.
Collect and utilise any objects you find to your advantage, be wary
of slamming doors and working trapdoors which will try to trap you
and avoid contact with all Ghosts and Monsters, as each of these will
use their best edeavours to hamper your search.
Each of the characters, Knight, Surf and Wizard, are armed with their
own specific weapons, individual movement type and use of one set of
secret passages, unbeknown to the others.
O.K. Enough of the advertising gumf . . . .
In 1984 ULTIMATE-PLAY THE GAME (Now known as RARE) gave us an incredible graphic adventure in the form of Atic Atac.
