Synopsis

Plot

Deep in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, hidden in the eerie mists of forgotten times, the Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine awaits the fortune-seeker bold enough to challenge the fates.
Protected by bands of hostile Indians, the ravines and gullies harbor silent death for the unwary adventurer.
You start in a miner's shack in the desert below the mountains with a mule, a rifle, and a few tools. There is a map hidden somewhere and this is your clue to uncountable wealth. There is a ghost town, and the desert, and, ultimately, the deadly Superstitions to explore as you search for the way to the Lost Dutchman's Mine.
