Lure of the TemptressSTORY / GAMEPLAY
The medieval town of Turnvale has fallen into the hands of an evil sorceress named Selena. She commands and controls an army of an orc-like warriors race called Skorl, who serve her in deep devotion. You take the role of a young peasant named Diermot who most recently was employed by the King's hunting party as a beater. One night, the King receives a note from a messenger, requesting his majesty's alliance to help kill a rebellion located at the remote village of Turnvale. As the King's men depart riding their horses to the rescue, Diermots pony follows them and he is unwittingly dragged into a cruel battle. When the party arrives at Turnvale, it's confronted not by an ordinary peasant revolt, but rather by a band of fierce, inhuman mercenaries (the Skorl) led by the young evil sorceress; the titular Temptress. The King's men are defeated during the battle and the King is finally killed. In the process, Diermot is flung from his mount and winds up on the ground unconscious. The Skorl arrest Diermot and toss him into the local prison (a dark dungeon), where he must find a way to escape! Here's where the game starts and immerses you into a classic point and click adventure game, that features a great scenario and some fantastic medieval style visuals!

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The Amiga version offers great visuals comparable in quality to the PC (MS-DOS) and the Atari ST and offers up to 32 colors on screen (the ST uses up to 16 and the MS-DOS up to 100 colors respectively!). The background details are awesome, including a variety of medieval indoor/outdoor scenes (castles, lairs etc) while the characters are nicely drawn and move smoothly (though they seem much slower compared to the PC version). The game's sound is equally good, offering a great introductory tune and bunch of nice sampled SFX, while there are plenty of short tunes during the story's cut-scenes.
