Hold it right there ! Really. We mean it. Don't even think about it. Just out it done, right now. Then turn around and very quietly walk out of the store. No one has to know.

You don't believe us, do you? Just because Cauldron is one of the best-selling arcade games in England, you think you have to try it, right ? You obviously haven't seen those Broderbund game testers who got this disk in the mail one day, tried it and… well, let's just say no one around here goes near Room #105 anymore.

What's the problem, you want to know? We're talking bats, caverns, claustrophobia, witches, ghosts, killer pumpkins, castle dungeons, bottomless moats. We're talking rapid-fire arcade action, great animation, tricky maneuvers, desperate strategy. We're talking fast, mean and ugly.

Still, no matter what we say, we know there's someone out there fool enough to try.

So look. Don't take our word for it. Ask the boys in #105.

You know how in a good horror movie, someone always says, "Don't go down in the basement. And if you do, don't go at night. And if you do go at night, whatever you do, don't go alone. And if you do go alone at night, whatever you do, don't go near that cobweb-covered trunk in the corner…" You know what happens next. In that spirit, we warn you that Cauldron has a built-in sequel. So, if against all advice and common sense, you do play this game- whatever you do, don't play the sequel!
