Synopsis

A princess has been kidnapped from the land of Serenia by an evil wizard. The King has sent out a request to all people for help in rescuing his daughter and offers half his kingdom to the person that can bring her back to Serenia. You play an unnamed adventurer in the game who sets out to find the princess.

This was the first adventure game with colour graphics.

The game is often seen as the predecessor of Sierra's hugely successful King's Quest series.

The PC version was sold under the name Adventure in Serenia by IBM.

Also available in Japanese.

Other than the colour graphics part, this tale of saving a princess from a wizard - with its crude graphics and clunky Sierra parser - has very little going for it.
