SUPER GAME PACK contains six new games for you to explore and enjoy. In the SHRINE OF KROZ, you are searching for the precious Crown within the mysterious kingdom of Kroz. Undoubtedly, the Crown must be guarded by unspeakable dangers. Armed with a whip and great courage, you decide to continue your journey. WORD WHIZ is a word challenge game to measure your knowledge of the English language. For example, are you positive you know what the word "peruse" means? Most people believe it means "to skim" or "to glance over," but in fact it means "to read carefully." Most questions focus on a key word. There are four multiple choice answers to choose from. Your quest in the ROGUE RUNNER is to recover the precious Heart of Courage, hidden deep inside the treacherous Ezam dungeons. The dungeons are populated by the lost souls of those who tried the journey before you. You may find maps and pick axes left behind by these adventurers. Keep an eye out for the scattered Teleport Scrolls. They will help you escape imminent death. Test your knowledge in the world of Star Trek, one of the most popular TV series of all time, with TREK TRIVIA. There are 100 questions to pick your brain, each with four possible answers. ASTEROID RESCUE has you put in command of the Space Eagle. Your mission is to rescue the crew members that have been blown from the USS Sagan during an uncharted asteroid storm. The crew members from the USS Sagan were able to get into their life suits, but their air supply will not last long. Help is needed immediately! BLOCK FIVE is a simple game to learn, yet is quite difficult to master. The object is to place five of your Xs in a row while preventing the computer opponent from putting five Os in a row.

(Highest rating in their system!) -- Public Brand Catalog "From Texas author Scott Miller comes an exciting adventure game, Kingdom of Kroz. You can use your only weapon, a whip, to dispatch foes and break through walls. It's a real challenge." -- COMPUTE!'s PC Magazine "1989 in Review -- Best New Programs...Kingdom of Kroz..." (Kingdom of Kroz was one of three games listed.) -- PsL News, Dec. 1989 "I'm really enjoying KINGDOM OF KROZ, I hope it doesn't destroy my GPA!" -- Greg McKinzey, OK "My computer is held hostage as my wife whips her way to level 25! You really DID write an entertaining program, my check is enclosed for the two sequels." -- John Rollinson, CA "Please do not make any more games like KINGDOM OF KROZ--I can't stop playing!" -- Ronald E. Johnson, FL ╔════════════════════════════════════╗ ║ CAVERNS OF KROZ & DUNGEONS OF KROZ ║ $7.50 registration each ╚════════════════════════════════════╝ The two sequels to KINGDOM OF KROZ--more levels, more action, more fun.

NOTE: Three new Kroz volumes have finally been completed, read below for the Super Kroz Trilogy. ╔═══════════╗ ║ SUPERNOVA ║ $10 registration ╚═══════════╝ Our best adventure game requires an entire 360K disk! Has as many features as even the best commercial adventure games, and then some. Like a 16-color screen, ASCII graphics (that even work on non-graphic systems), 1000+ word dictionary, over 160 game locations, 400+ sound effects, a "hint" command, and more. You begin on a remote mining planet with just your battered space ship and the hope that one day you'll have a job that actually pays! After an amazing discover you begin a trek that spans four planets, including a huge planetship. All to save a civilization from utter extinction--from a star ready to explode! In the Sept-Oct. 1989 issue of Shareware Magazine, Publisher Richard Peterson rated Supernova among his list of must-have "software gems", which included in all 35 programs. Supernova was the ONLY game on his list! "Supernova has sound, color, action and great adventure. Everything I wanted." -- PC-SIG Directory Guide "It's addictive!" -- Brian Tuck, Reviewer Hot Sheet "We know people who get all Apogee programs--this one is a good example of why they're addicted!" -- Gemini Marketing "Better than any adventure by Infocom." -- George Broussard, TX "My all-time favorite game, please make a sequel!" -- Nance McQuigg, NY ╔════════════════════╗ ║ BEYOND THE TITANIC ║ $8 registration ╚════════════════════╝ It's a text adventure game that mixes elements of science fiction, action, fantasy and rollicking adventure. The story begins with you standing aboard the Titanic just seconds before the ship sinks! In this story of riveting survival you'll discover a long forgotten undersea mystery, travel to the Earth's future, fly a shuttle to a floating city and be chased by a slobbering, three-armed creature--and that's just the believable part! "...as sophisticated as the best commercial adventure games by Infocom." -- Shareware Magazine (Program of the Month) "First class adventure from Apogee Software--riveting!" -- Gemini Marketing "If you've played any of Infocom's famous text games you'll notice that Beyond the Titanic is quite similar to Zork and Planetfall. And to add to the game's realism, sound effects are used throughout." -- Dave Cagle, Reviewer SW "The program allows multiword sentences instead of verb/noun commands. Play starts on the sinking Titanic, and through a series of strange and imaginative occurrences you end up...(not going to give it away!)" -- Personal Computer Magazine "As a programmer, I'm amazed that this game understands full English sentences. We've been working--unsuccessfully--on this area for a year now. Can we buy your code?" -- Dr. Paul Short, AZ "After you pick the cabinet's lock, how do I heal my broken arms? ...also, I love this game, send me a list of other games you've made." -- Edward DiGiovine, OH "It's equal or better than most expensive adventure games. Great!" -- PC-SIG Directory ╔═════════════════════════════╗ ║ TREK TRIVIA, VOLUMES 1 - 10 ║ $4 per volume or $30 for all 10 volumes ╚═════════════════════════════╝ T.V.

Each volume has 100 multiple choice questions, and when you answer a question correctly you'll be rewarded with a "Bonus Fact". Bonus Facts are additional tidbits that even further expand your Star Trek knowledge. What type of crystal is used to power the engines of the Enterprise? What is Mr. Spock's first name? How fast is warp 2? What does the Prime Directive prevent the crew of the Enterprise from doing? Did you know that Dr. McCoy's medical instruments were actually modified salt and pepper shakers. Or that it was Leonard Nemoy who developed the idea of Mr. Spock's Vulcan nerve pinch (so as to make Spock less violent). Or that the Enterprise is 947 feet long. Or that Joan Collins, Terri Garr, and Ricardo Montalban all appeared in a Star Trek episode. Or that the Enterprise was named by Captain James T. Kirks father! It's all here in Trek Trivia. You'll also receive a secret code that lets you answer each question automatically. "The game moves swiftly and the challenge is great...The 100 true and false and multiple choice questions are provocative.

The Super Kroz trilogy boasts new features galore. Over forty new playfield objects (like spells, traps, creatures, treasures, terrains, etc.) have been added. The three new Kroz games are: RETURN TO KROZ - Your quest for the "Crown of Kroz". TEMPLE OF KROZ - A death defying adventure for the "Holy Grail". THE FINAL CRUSADE OF KROZ - Will you discover the great mystery of Kroz? They all have 16-color graphics (yes, 16 colors!) and a tremendous sound effects library. In each game you must navigate through dangerous chambers, solving puzzles and avoiding pitfalls. Collect gems, whips, chests, nuggets, tablets, keys and scrolls to aid your progress. These game are as much strategic as they are pure arcade fun. All Kroz games are designed to work correctly on ANY computer system, regardless of microprocessor type or speed. Although they are best played on a color system, they do have an option to be played on a monochrome system! The following is a review of the new Kroz games from The Software Labs catalog of shareware games: "It's pure dynamite! A unique combination of arcade action, strategy and adventure unlike any other game you've played. Some levels are puzzle oriented, which makes a great change of pace from the high action parts of the game. You'll find new terrains, traps, spells, hazards, creatures, and levels to challenge your dexterity, and sound effects galore. You'll encounter moving walls, forbidden forests, active volcanoes, bottomless pits and much more, plus plenty of options. AND, no two games will be alike! Great fun, great challenge, great action--GREAT GAME!!!" -- Software Labs Catalog "Five Stars!" (Highest rating in their system!) -- Sizzleware Catalog "Four Stars!" (Highest rating in their system!) -- Public Brand Catalog "Five Stars--As good as the best commercial programs available." -- Micro Star Catalog "Here is my check for the use of your fantastic program, thankfully you are not charging by the hour...or I would be bankrupt!. I am currently stationed in Korea, and your games have been the highlight of my tour." -- CW3 Daniel W. Evans, PA 1st Bn 5th Infantry "My family is fascinated by the Kroz series." (Family picture enclosed!) -- Isabel Goehringer, Germany The following is an actual letter from a grandmother of the young age of 64: "I have lived in Kroz for almost a month and was sorry tonight to finally find the Amulet. "It really is strange what an illness your game can be. I have found myself going over in my head a particularly difficult level right in the middle of a conversation. To tell you that I have enjoyed the challenge would be very understated. "I am a Grandmother who has traveled around the world, but found no place that was more interesting than your world of Kroz. "Please keep my address and drop me a note when you have a new game. Guess that about says it all. Best of everything in the future, I hope that you become the Agatha Christie of computer games." -- Patricia Baker, RI "P.S. I have died a million deaths!" "I teach Data Processing at the North Lawrence Area Vocation Technical Center in Bedford, Indiana. I am writing because my students found your game Kroz fascinating. They are learning to program and would like a listing of Kroz to dissect and study as a class project." -- Prof. David Leary "My family and I enjoy the games immensely. I don't want to tell my students about them--they might never work on their computer science projects again! -- Dr. R. Michael Wharton York University, Canada "Unique, exciting arcade-adventure game. Tops!" -- The Software Labs ╔═════════════════════════════╗ ║ THE LOST ADVENTURES OF KROZ ║ (75 new levels!) $20 registration ╚═════════════════════════════╝ By far the biggest and the best of the Kroz series. New features include creature animation, constantly growing forests, gravity wells, ropes, spears, daily diaries, and many, many more! If you survive the 75 levels you'll get to read the sacred Tome (book) of Kroz that explains the untold stories that players have demanded. Also, for Rogue players, you'll finally get the Amulet of Yendor!!! ╔═══════════╗ ║ WORD WHIZ ║ $5 per volume or only $14 for all four volumes ╚═══════════╝ A unique and challenging word game. Test your knowledge of the sometimes crazy English language. The English language has more words than any other, and we rarely use ten percent of them! Not only that, many words we use are consistantly used incorrectly. Example: If you perused at new book, did you... A. Read it carefully and thoroughly, or B. Just skim through it Over 80% of all Americans pick answer B, when in fact the answer is A! So if you like this kind of challenge, and don't mind the "learning experience", then you'll love Word Whiz. (It's also a great education game for high school and pre-high school students, but while they're having fun, don't let them know it's good for them, too!) ╔════════════════╗ ║ SUPER GAME PAK ║ Only $10 ╚════════════════╝ This is a new disk that's been put together to introduce you to Apogee's game line. All games are fully playable, there's no "demos" or "crippled" versions. The games are: ■ Shrine of Kroz -- Same as Return to Kroz ■ Raiders of the Lost Mine -- Avoid the Skull while you dig for gold nuggets ■ Word Whiz -- Volume I of the new word challenge series ■ Rogue Runner -- Kinda' like Pac Man, but a lot different! ■ Trek Trivia -- Volume I for Star Trek fans ■ Asteroid Rescue -- Fly through asteroids as you save astronauts from being crushed ■ Block Five -- Play computer in ancient strategy game Even if you have one of two of these games already, it is still worth the low "trial" price to get the other games.
