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!
