DESCRIPTION

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons - Treasure of Tarmin © 1983 Mattel Electronics.


ALONE in a deep web of endless rooms and corridors... you move on with a bow, a quiver of arrows, a sack of flour, and an empty pack toward DEEPER PATHWAYS...beyond which the TARMIN TREASURE can be found. Yet you know the DEVOURING MINOTAUR awaits you... at the end of your quest. You proceed cautiously through ILLOMENED GATES and LADDERS and even HIDDEN DOORS. You bump into all kinds of combat and spiritual objects, some of which give you STRANGE POWERS when collected and then used. Your pack can only contain up to 6 objects, your hand 2 -- but they can be swapped around and used in the best possible ways. So it's up to you to OUTSMART the EVIL FORCES... and GRAB the LOOT!

TRIVIA

The working title was 'Minotaur'.
