The hero of two cult Spectrum games has, at last, made his first venture on to the Amstrad. Dun Darach is a legendary city in which your friend and chariot-eer, Loeg, has been imprisoned by the evil sorceress, Skar. Your task as Cuchulainn the Great is, by solving various puzzles, to rescue Loeg and escape from the city.
The principle concern in Dun Darach is with money. With money you can buy objects necessary to solve the puzzles. Making money is a game in itself and there are several honest and dishonest ways to do it: you can try buying and selling at a profit; stealing goods and selling them (which is highly profitable but also risky, watch out for Ryde, the local Yeoman who, if you are caught stealing, will gladly take all trie objects that you possess and your money); by banking
your money and letting it build up slowly 0% interest is awar-ded for every day your money stays in the bank! or you could always pay a visit to the gambl-ing houses and get rich quick or become bust even quicker.
Besides the traders, who don't move, there are 10 other charac-ters that inhabit Dun Darach. These are represented by one basic male or female character, each one is fully animated in great detail and even their hair blows in the wind. If another character besides yourself or a trader is on screen then a cursor made up of their first initial follows their movement across the screen, and their full name appears at the bottom, which makes identification easy. As well as being fully animated each character has their own personality — some are pick-ckets, one a gossip and anot-er an exiled map maker but all have one thing in common, they each want something and in return they will each give an object to you. Of these objects some will be useful and others will almost give a clue to another task that must be performed before your goal is achieved.
There is more than meets the eye in Dun Darach. The graphics with their 3D 'camera views' are superb, some of the best yet to grace the Amstrad, but it is the atmosphere created within the

game that makes it a real winner; you can almost feel you know the main characters and it can be quite a disappointment to actually complete the game because you suffer a sense of loss at withdrawing from the fictional world that Gargoyle Games have created. And there's another bonus, unlike
many conversions Dun Darach differs from the Spectrum orig-inal in having a different solu-tion, so in its own way this is an original game.

AdviceIf Dun Darach. the graphical adventure from Gargoyle Games, has been puzzling you over the past couple of months as it has me then you might just find these tips useful. To find Teth you must first go to the Old Quarter and buy or steal a statue. Now take this to the Soke or Hatha de and follow the rat that wanders the streets. In Claw Lane the rat will disa-ppear for a few seconds, stand on the spot from where it disa-ppeared and press Enter; you will now be in Darch Down. Inside Darch Down is Teth, Give Teth the statue and in return he will give you the d—key, this unlocks the locked door in the castle.
AdviceThese tips were compiled with the help of Michael Mitchell, Gary Macintosh both of Morayshire, Keith Walker of Birmingham, Kevin Penton of Horninglow, Craig Rogers of Hayes and . . , myself. They follow on from the first few snippets of information given away in issue 0 so if you don't have a copy of that it is possible to order one through the back numbers service. Buy a Mole skin from the skinner and give this to Bren in return for a map. Now earn enough money to buy the Platinum and give this to Bren for another map and the message 'Galacia is far'. Give this map to Ryde in ret-urn for the shield Belinus. Take this to the Hail Belinus room and drop on the table in there in return for a clue. To gain as much money as you wish go to the gambling nouses in lomain. Now drop all your money on table B and press 6 to return to the menu. Save the game then return back to where you were. Keep gambling and saving the game when you win and reloading a saved game when you lose. This way you can easily build up enough money to purchase anything you want. To speed up the interest rate, bank some of your money and then carry out some of the other tips while it is day (signified by the torches beino out) — press 6 and then 1. Tnis will take you to the menu and then back into the game. When you re-enter the game the torches will flicker on and you will collect interest for the whole day. Using this method it is possible to get your 1% interest twice a day.
