|★ AMSTRAD CPC ★ GAMESLIST ★ THE DARK TOWER (c) THE ADVENTURE WORKSHOP ★|
In the small store-room of the monastery stood a large oak chest, adorned with bands of copper and held together with tiny brass bands nailed in place with small iron nails. Inside this chest lay a green-leather book, it's pages yellow with age and as brittle as a leaf on a cold autumn mom. On these pages, in dark blue ink, had been scrolled the annals of the 'Age of Shadows' and of the fate that befell the monastery of Draghag at the hands of marauding Ores.
The book told of a time when there was a bitter struggle between humans and ores, of a time when the 'Dark Lord' was slain and the ores put to flight. It also told how many of the ores split into small bands and spent their time roaming the countryside intent on pillaging and looting. One such band had attacked the monastery and stolen, amongst other religious artefacts, the legendary 'Golden Chalice'. They had then retired to the safety of the 'Dark Tower', a secure citadel situated somewhere beyond the Shadow Mountain. They also took with them the leader of the unicorn herd and after subjecting the poor creature to barbaric treatment, turned it loose in the forest.
One day the abbot sent for you and informed you that even though you were a mere novice it had befallen you, as the youngest and bravest, to seek out the ores and their infamous ‘Dark Tower* and to recover the stolen items. You were also instructed to find the unicorn, as that would be your only means of returning to the monastery.
The abbot and several of the monks accompanied you as far as the edge of the forest, but when an ore archer was spotted amidst the trees they all turned tail and left you to your own resources.
You wandered around aimlessly for a spell, then suddenly spy a wisp of smoke rising lazily over the tree-tops. Striding northwards, you head in the direction of the smoke.

L'Amstrad CPC est une machine 8 bits à base d'un Z80 à 4MHz. Le premier de la gamme fut le CPC 464 en 1984, équipé d'un lecteur de cassettes intégré il se plaçait en concurrent du Commodore C64 beaucoup plus compliqué à utiliser et plus cher. Ce fut un réel succès et sorti cette même années le CPC 664 équipé d'un lecteur de disquettes trois pouces intégré. Sa vie fut de courte durée puisqu'en 1985 il fut remplacé par le CPC 6128 qui était plus compact, plus soigné et surtout qui avait 128Ko de RAM au lieu de 64Ko.
