Written by Ultimate Play The Game, and the first game using the Filmation 2 graphics engine
The BBC version is quite a bit different from the other formats, firstly the game is totally monochrome, usually blue, secondly the ammunition bar is under the play screen instead of by the side of it, this is because the play area is considerably larger than any other port, it also plays faster, and has the annoying quirk of enemies materialising on top of the hero removed, on the negative side, there is no joystick control and no way to redefine the keys to the players liking.
The town of Nightshade is under attack from 4 evil beings, the player must find the four weapons to send each one back to the underworld, while avoiding the many minions they have unleashed upon the land, potions can be collected and stored, but beware, using the different ones on the wrong creature, can cause them to multiply.
