Description from the packaging.

"The only way to destroy the Evil Book of Magic is to prevent it from ever being created!"

And with these words from Mesron, the Great Wizard, you realize the adventure you thought had ended in Questron has only just begun.

As Mesron begins his mystical incantation, you feel a darkness enveloping you, the air crackling with an unearthly sound. The very fabric of time and space has been ripped asunder!

Just as suddenly, the darkness recedes, and you hear Mesron's final thoughts:
"I have hurled you back to the distant past, to a time before the Evil Book of Magic has been created by the six Mad Sorcerers. Find them and prevent the consummation of their abominable deed!"
"Mankind's future rests on your success in the depths of the past."

Questron II offers an experience in fantasy gaming so awe-inspiring, it surpasses even its legendary predecessor! Its all-new, state-of-the-art graphics is nothing short of stunning. The beautiful visual presentation of the magical world- from the wilderness and towns to the countless characters and monsters- is truly breathtaking.

Explore the dungeons and see our crowning glory: They are shown as 3-D displays- fully rendered and animated. An overhead view is presented alongside to help you get your bearings.

It's been no easy task to outdo the first Questron. So we are proud to say:
"We've done it."
And you're reading about it.
