Description from the packaging.

Are you hero enough to ride with Gandalf, Aragorn and the other Fellowship characters against the armies of the traitorous wizard Saruman?

Then experience Riders Of Rohan, based on J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord Of The Rings, the greatest epic fantasy ever written. Riders Of Rohan represents the most faithful re-creation of Tolkien's work yet developed for the microcomputer.

Command the elite cavalry of Rohan as the Riders battle to save their land from the wicked forces of darkness. Destiny lies in your hands as you race with Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli while they attempt to save the captured Hobbits from a fate worse than death. Rohan's lush green grasslands, soft rolling hills, and peaceful meadows blend with enchanting music to form a beautiful, inviting environment... a stark contrast to the clashing swords, thundering horses, and piercing battle cries that fill a land at war.

See Tolkien's world unfold before your eyes in this masterful blend of fantasy role-playing, arcade action, and tactical wargaming. Riders Of Rohan is a game that will both challenge and entertain you- a timeless addition to any software collection!
