A real time action adventure featuring 1,200 locations over seven levels of play. Joystick only.
It is forever winter...
The kingdom is under a spell of eternal darkness. Alone and vulnerable, you must ascend the Ice Palace, home of the wicked Ice Queen, and break this evil spell.
To destroy the spell, you must collect the seven pieces of the Ice Crown which have been hidden throughout the Ice Palace. The crown once belonged to the benevolent King, your father, who was killed long ago by the Ice Queen. As you progress, the Queen's fury will grow and she will try harder to defeat you.
As you move through each of the seven levels of the palace, youmust find objects solve problems, and underake many strange and difficult tasks, all the while fighting off the attacks of the Queen's servants, who will try their hardest to turn you to their evil ways.
The palace is made up of hexagonal rooms built entirely out of ice, but they are not always correctly aligned. This makes movement difficult, but you can invoke a spell of rotation to line up the exits.
Trust nothing and no-one. You are utterly alone!
