Aim of the game

The dying light of the Red Moon has been captured in a crystal by the magicians of Baskalos to act as the last repository of magik. Its guardian for many years has been Myglar, a wise and respected sorcerer. But unbeknownst to the other magicians, Myglar was steadily being consumed by fears for his own mortality. Now he is channeling the remaining power of the Red Moon crystal into keeping himself alive. It's your task to defeat him and recover the crystal before he drains it completely of its magik.

Game play

TPOM is a fairly conventional adventure game, in two flavours - a 48K version with cut-down text and a 128K version with full text and extra features (see below). It's a big game (well worth mapping!) and quite complex too; there are 18 spells you'll need to learn and for which you'll need to find certain objects to act as foci.


"An excellent adventure game".

This, the sequel to RED MOON, is another classic Level 9 game and is still a very good adventure indeed.


RAM SAVE and RAM RESTORE, which are pretty self-explanatory, and UNDO, which undoes the previous command (even if it was fatal).
