|Rick Dyer, the creator of 'Dragon's Lair' (now housed in the Smithsonian Museum)
designed this beautiful award winning game. It is a grand and glorious fairytale: an
epic quest reminiscent of Tolkien that can be enjoyed by both adults and children.
It's a revised version of the arcade game Thayer's Quest.
In this adventure game, step into the shoes of Lathan Kandor, a young boy, to
defeat the evil Black Wizard. Lathan will find help from his mentor, the mighty
magician Daelon. Explore the fantasy lands of the Far Reaches and retrieve three of
the five pieces of the ancient relic called The Hand of Mobus. Talk to a variety of
characters, collect objects and solve adventure type problems and puzzles. It
features mouse control, video animations, cartoon-like graphics, an in-game travel
map and original music which can be turned off if desired. This is a 3rd person,
point and click game with inventory (your pouch). It is set in a wonderful Medieval-
looking world of enchanted castles and forests, wizards and magic. The story is
engrossing, the voices are great, and the music is stirring. And the graphics are
absolutely astounding: Disney-quality flawless animation with over 57,000 hand-painted
animation cells! The feeling is one of being in the middle of an interactive movie in
the theater. The story was continued in another game called Kingdom Book 2: Shadoan. The 1997 Windows/MAC re-release had better resolution of 424 × 320 pixels in size, which is much larger than 224 × 144 for DOS.
