Description from the packaging.

During the Holy Crusades, the brave, adventurous young soldiers of the Christian world traveled to the Holy Land to fight the Medieval Infidel Saracens

As Ilan The Crusader, you must make your way through the mazes of stone walls that are patrolled by fanatical guards. Your goal: destroy the Chief of the Saracens.

Your only weapon is a longbow; but when your arrows shoot straight and true, they have the power to crash through walls or start a chain reaction of explosions.

Mazes are booby-trapped with bombs; blue-steel balls thunder heavily after you; and locked doors present a challenge to your wit and ingenuity.
