Synopsis

Plot

Find a magic arrow and kill the evil Xerdon.

Notes

The original TRS-80 version, and slightly later IBM PC port, was published by Molimerx.

To obtain graphics on a Dragon requires the computer to be in Dragon 64 mode, otherwise the game is text only.

An unofficial port was made for the Plus4 in 1990; see here.

Woohoo! The first adventure I ever tried, with only the most cursory understanding of English at the time. I think it took me a couple of hours to discover that the ever-so-lovely graphics could be switched off ;-)

I think the "There is no joy in reality" line is supposed to follow on from Part One's "For those who journey in dreams..."

It makes more sense (and is a lot less depressing) that way.

That makes more sense Pippa

Not a lot better then the first part, which is a low point in the series. However, the puzzles in this one are less crude and a couple kept me amused for a while.

There seems to be a problem when playing the BBC Micro version of this game under emulation (both online and using BeebEm) - when you get to the point of making the vital arrow, you are told that there is something missing despite having all the ingredients. This problem definitely did not exist in the original version, as I remember playing it through to the end on a real BBC.

@Jonathan O. Thanks. Bug reported at Stardot:

It wasn't a bug after all. An updated BBC-Micro-specific walkthrough has been submitted to CASA.

Red face moment! I'd completely forgotten that in the BBC version you had to do that extra thing to the ingredients. (Can't help wondering why Howarth made that alteration - did it make the coding easier?)

It was ported on Commodore Plus4, like the first part of the game. You can find it on Recall Collection floppy #132 from Commodore C16 / C116 / Plus 4 Tosec.

There is a Plus4 port for this game, made by Pigmy in 1990. You can download it here: http://plus4world.powweb.com/software/Arrow_Of_Death_2
