Labyrinth... now that I have played it, I know. This game takes place in the Dark Ages (circa 1150 A.D.) in medieval England. You play the role of Dr. Sigmus Harper, one of the King's head researchers on foreign plants. While searching for a magnifying glass to examine a new specimen of Comorosa (Phaetus Comorosa), you stumble into a meeting between the King and a man in dark armor. They are talking quietly, but you hear them say something about "gems", "mines", and the kingdom's holy object, the Rienholc Vial. When the king spots you, he orders you thrown in the Labyrinth, a giant maze-like dungeon outside of the castle. And so you set off. I don't want to say too much on the plot, but rest assured that you stop the King. This is a great game, and one of the 12 that actually deserve a "5".

*Graphics-- Excellent, especially on the 13 RPG battles. One of the boards (the "gatehouse") seems a bit sterile, though. 4.9

*Sound-- Again excellent. The music sounds like it could be coming from the mind of Wil. There is also a near perfect rendition of "From the hall of the Mountain King" near the end. 5.0

*Plot-- I can't detail it too much, but the plot is the best thing about the game. 5.0

*Programming/Spelling-- There are no spelling errors or bad programs, which is amazing for a three file game. 5.0

*Overall (Not an average)-- 5.0

end

A wonderful game. Great maze constuction, appropriate traps, good use of pre-programmed creatures. And a fabulous runtime error ending.
