Many years ago, when Arcon became King, the Gods gave him a Staff Of Power. It was filled with strong magic for good or evil but King Arcon has always used it for honest purposes and has been a wise and just ruler. But one day, in the guise of a beggar seeking justice from the King, the evil magician Zyx swiped the Staff from the King's hands. Immediately, Zyx revealed himself in his true form, cursed the King for his goodness and vowed to destroy the kingdom.

You have been chosen to regain the Staff and destroy Zyx but first you must find four magical weapons; a sword, shield, ring and warhorn. In this adventure be prepared for the unexpected and for illusions. There is a limit of 400 moves, by which time you must have returned the Staff to King Arcon otherwise Zyx will use the Staff to take over the world.

This is a great little adventure, with a decent intro and good instructions. It also features RAMSAVE and RAMLOAD and you can be RESURRECTED if you accidentally get killed. The parser was reasonably

friendly and you can always type in VOCAB for inspiration if you're stuck. Also LOOK IN. ON, UNDER and BEHIND are supported.

Ifs not always immediately clear what you're supposed to do but a careful read of the location text will assist you there. The puzzles start pretty easy and gradually became more complicated. There was a puzzle near the end of the adventure which I reckon might be too difficult for the average adventurer, but feel free to prove me wrong. Most of the puzzles can be overcome by careful examination of the objects you pick up along the way but there are some red herrings to throw you off the scent.

The only drawback I found was that I needed to use the RAMSAVE facility occasionally because at certain points of the game you are "only allowed so many moves to overcome a problem. If you loath mazes then you'll love this adventure, because there aren't any. Be careful not to use the UNLOCK DOOR spell too soon, you won't need it until much later.

Staff of Power will keep you busy for some time, so don't think that you're in for an easy ride. Keep your cool, and remember most of the puzzles are logical, even though it will have you pulling out your hair a few times. Well worth the asking price, and I look forward to reviewing Sue Medley's other adventure, Oklib's Revenge, when it becomes available.

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.
