What is Arthur: The Quest for Excalibur?

"Whoso pulleth out this sword of this stone, is rightwise king born of all England."

In the days before Camelot, when Magic and Evil rule England, a sword sheathed in stone appears in quite churchyard. Engraved upon it are the words which form your destiny. For you are Arthur, the son and true heir of the High King, Uther Pendragon.

But there is more to asserting your clain than wresting free the sword. The sword in the stone disappears - stolen by the evil King Lot. To win it back, you must develop the kingly qualities of wisdom, chivarly, and experience, qualities that will also prove you worthy of the thone. And you must do it all within three days, or Lot will ursup your legacy.

You are assisted by Merlin the Enchanter, who grant you the power to transform yourself into a variety of animals. Now you can explore the kingdom as no one has before: from the sky, from the rivers and lakes, from on - and under - the eath. How you use this power, and how you solve myriads puzzles that confront you, will determine the success in your quest.

  • Merlin's crystal ball reveals helpful hints.
  • The undo command lets you rescind even the most foulhardy of decisions.
  • Optional on-screen mapping gives you your quest direction.
  • A medieval Book of Hours has been magically cast into each and every Arhur's package, along with the game disk and complete instructions.

Now prepare to claim your birthright as king born of all England. It's your chance to live legend.
