Description from the packaging.

Welcome to the adventure! This pack contains programs on Cassette plus instructions for Philosopher's Quest, an intelligent adventure where the player explores a strange land full of weird and unlikely things, some dangerous, some even magical.

In this new and authentic game the concept of the adventure is exploited to the full, and extended to include abstract thought as a means to progress and survival. However, wild speculation will get you nowhere- you have to use your wits!

The objective is to find all of the treasures and bring them back to where you began, but in the meantime you have to sift clues, weigh up risks, spot magic words and remember which way you came!

By Peter Killworth.
