    Short summary describing this game.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    In a distant land called Llewdor,  Gwydion works as a slave for a wizard named Manannan. He was kidnapped by the wizard as a child, and has no memory of his former life. One day Gwydion decides to flee from Manannan's claws, and return to the land he came from, Daventry. 


    • Time-based puzzles, wherein the player must make sure that tasks are completed while the evil Manannan is away
    • Basic spell-making (also functions as the copy-protection)
    • Classic Sierra text parser input


    Fans of the series complained that the story had no connection to the previous games. Ties to the other games were revealed at the end of the game.
