Description from the packaging.

A heroic fantasy from the award-winning creators of Déjà Vu and Uninvited.

The wind whistles shrilly through the halls as you step gingerly over the threshold. You've just entered Shadowgate, once a shining fortress, now an evil, dark, moldering ruin. In your hands lies the fate of your land… freedom and sunlight, or the dark domination of the Warlock Lord. Only you, the last of an ancient line of kings, can hope to stop the evil one from his dread purpose: the raising of the titan Behemoth and the destruction of the land.

Enter Shadowgate's diabolical fantasy world filled with dragons, demons, wizards, trolls and more than a little mayhem. A tangled web of intrigue draws you in, until it's too late and you're trapped. Like Déjà Vu and Uninvited before it, Shadowgate has earned the praise of game players everywhere.

"In keeping with tradition, Shadowgate is one of the most exciting games around. It has everything a great graphic adventure game should have; great graphics, great sound, great adventure." - MacUser Magazine.

"Shadowgate is an excellent product." - Computer Gaming World.
