Description from the packaging.

An epic adventure to a medieval castle.

Over a scorching desert, through foreboding caverns, fast a fiery volcano, and under the leafy cover of a steaming jungle, five brave adventurers travel to reach the treasures hidden in a distant castle.

One at a time they venture into danger. It's up to you and your trusty crossbow to protect them along their treacherous path. And if one succumbs to the scorpions, stalactites, fireballs, or man-eating plants that block his way, the next adventurer arrives to take his place.

Save as many brave explorers as you can! Once you overcome all the early hazards, you will arrive at the castle. Here your skill, courage- and aim- are truly challenged.

So grab your crossbow and let the tale unfold!
