Synopsis

Plot

Many years ago, Glandor the surf wandered into the village of Clingwood starving and weary. The local people took pity and gave him food and shelter until he regained his strength. Despite their generosity they never asked for anything in return.

The years passed and Glandor was never seen in Clingwood again until one night he returned. No longer a poor surf but a rich merchant. So grateful was he for that night years ago that he gave the village a precious golden goblet.

Centuries passed and the goblet stood in the village church. But one night in 1873 the church was ransacked and the goblet stolen... it's not been seen since.

Intrigued by this ancient story, you decide that you will risk all to return the golden goblet to the church and restore happiness to the village.

Notes

Some of the versions in circulation are buggy, occasionally displaying blank lines instead of text, and garbling the display upon entering a certain location.

Where can I get a fully working version of this game?

The disc version at STH (http://www.stairwaytohell.com/bbc/archive/diskimages/Romik/HolyHorrors.zip) has the blank lines problem.

The tape version at STH, the tape contains *,ADVENT,SCREEN,PART1 and is missing the remaining files.

I've uploaded the version I possess. This version may show some graphical glitches with older releases of BeebEm, but with recent releases of BeebEm there is no problem. Either way these glitches do not prevent you from completing the game.

After loading the disc image start the game with:
*RUN "HORRORS"
