Emerald Isle lies in the Bermuda Triangle, hidden by fogs and treacherous waters and peopled by the remnants of a strange civilisation. This is a massive adventure and, if you read the gold label, you'll probably find this version has over 200 pictures!
Level 9 Computing specialise in adventures. Big adventures with over 200 locations, detailed scenery and interesting storylines. This means more enjoyment for you and we'll send a free clue sheet, with hundreds of answers, if you get stuck.
All adventures have SAVE and RESTORE commands for the state of play and graphical games have PICTURES and WORDS to turn graphics on and off.
This game is designed to have graphics on most micros, but don't worry if the version for your computer is pure text. The puzzles are the same, and there is more room for longer messages.
You play the part of an aircraft pilot, employed to ferry urgent 'documents' around the Caribbean. Fierce winds seize the plane over the Bermuda Triangle and hurl it to destruction; you escape by parachute at the last moment.
As you float down towards an island below, you recognise the coastline from an old map. It is the lonely atoll, "Emerald isle", which few people visit and from which none return.
It is said that only one person may leave - the ruler of the land - and that each visitor is tested. Success promotes you to King or Queen; failure promotes you to the next life.
Explore peculiar towns, meet peculiar people, learn the peculiar purpose of the 'letters' and travel on a railway which is simplicity itself compared to BR's peculiar fare system. Don't be too afraid of the dark, and watch out for the spider!
About Level 9
"Ask any dedicated adventure player to name a software house and it's quite likely that the answer will be Level 9. Not only do they produce a range of consistently high class software for seven different machines but they've also been around for a long time. In a business that has seen the rapid rise and fall of many a well known name, that's something of a rarity.
Level 9 is definitely a family concern, run in a very business-like manner from the Austin residence. The three partners and chief programmers are all brothers - Pete, Nick and Michael Austin, their sister Margaret is the marketing manager and the mail-order business is run by Mrs. Austin Senior...
'How did it all start?' I asked him (Pete). 'With a Nascom and £60,' he replied... Of the original £60, £20 went on tapes and £20 on classified advertisements in hobbyist magazines." - Software Today
"Level 9 are arguably the producers of the best adventure games in the UK." - Acorn User
"There can be no doubt that Pete Austin and the team at Level 9 are the Lords of Adventure." - Central Press Features
