Disk No: 2573 Disk Title: The Last Half of Darkness (CGA) PC-SIG Version: S1 Program Title: The Last Half of Darkness (CGA) Author Version: 1.0 Author Registration: $20.00 Special Requirements: CGA, and LHARC archiving utility. Do you like graphic adventure games with sharp pictures, mouse support, save and restore game functions, and spine-shivering puzzles to solve? Then THE LAST HALF OF DARKNESS is for you! When the game starts, you find yourself in front of your recently deceased aunt's mansion. In order to gain the title to her fortune and estate, you must find the ingredients to a potion she was working on before she was killed. It won't be easy as there are many strange denizens in the old mansion. Some will help you in your quest, while others would just as soon finish you off! Choose one of the listed commands with either the keyboard or mouse. Use speaker sound or Covox's Speech Thing. Examine everything, take what you can, and don't forget to save your game before you do anything dangerous which, in this game, can be a frequent thing. What are you waiting for? Dust those cobwebs off your trusty old map notebook and take a journey to THE LAST HALF OF DARKNESS! PC-SIG 1030D East Duane Avenue Sunnyvale Ca. 94086 (408) 730-9291 (c) Copyright 1989 PC-SIG, Inc.
