Ok, this is a text-adventure (also known as an interactive fiction adventure type back then), in which you use text commands to control your character to influence the environment. You play the role of a young Prince trying returning his people to the peaceful and wealthy days, and drive the Barbarians back to the inhospitable land from where they came. Your quest starts by standing before the great city walls of your home-castle, trying to enter. When in, you must live among strange people and survive ... Note that the original game consist of three parts while its re-release (Sam Coupe version) not.
In terms of graphics, the Sam Coupe has two versions of the game.
The 512Kb version featuring nicely drawn and colorful static scenes while, the 256Kb version features text only (much like the original) which is rather awkward I think! Note that both 512/256kb versions offered a nice introductory music too.
