DESCRIPTION
 
[Coin-Op] Arcade Video Game

Legend Quest © 1991 W Industries.


Legend Quest contains 3 discrete dungeons and dragons genre role play challenges (easy, tricky and hard). Supported by in-context training and help from the Compact Disc, the players choose their challenge and proceed to battle their way through each level. They receive a preset amount of time for their credit and can extend this to complete the level by fulfilling various tasks, which carry bonus time.

Set in the far off land of Khelda Roth, a once beautiful world is now gripped by the wrath of the god Nar-Gadrin; the mission is to help in the quest to banish this force of disorder and chaos to the universe from whence he came. This interactive role play adventure experience for the Cyberspace system enable the player to choose from a variety of characters and professions before they enter the underworld of Targ-Athuin. Noble Elf, true hearted Human or treasure loving Dwarf, each race has its own part to play in the liberation of Khelda Roth. Their chosen profession, of either nimble fingered Thief, courageous Warrior or worldly-wise Wizard, will enable the players to contribute their part in the challenges and tasks that await them in this fantasy world.

Entering the dungeon of Targ-Athuin ('Test of Men'), players experience the worlds first interactive Virtual Reality role play adventure using swords, long bows, magic spells and mental agility.
