Prince Erik has been away for many years, learning the ways of the world and preparing for the day when he would be king. One day, he receives word that his father has been murdered. He hurries home only to be falsely accused of the crime and thrown into prison. You must escape the confines of the prison, and free your land from the villainous forces of the Warlock Lord, who is about to return the land. As you journey to Castle Shadowgate you will have to fight vicious beasts, and solve a great number of puzzles. Your sister has also been kidnapped by the cunning Belezar, a man of great evil. Can you save her, and prevent the Warlock Lord from causing more pain?
