Pyramid fun
TURNED into a toad by the spells of Griselda the Necromancer, you must race down a pyramid of steps to escape from the fortress. Every step must be covered before escape is possible. Devils, skulls and ghosts chase you round the pyramid threatening instant death.

This is the Q-bert style arcade format of Spellbound from Beyond Software. You have three lives on each of the twelve levels. The skins of previous lives hang in a spider's web above the playing area and lightning bolts shoot from the cauldron where Griselda sits stirring. Timer and current score are shown beneath the pyramid. The attacking creatures multiply from level to level and your chances get slimmer.

The insert does not specify any joystick simply suggesting that a 'relevant' one be used. Certainly there is no great advantage in a stick as the toad hops rather than glides. And with a stick it is tempting to hold on too long and vanish in a puff of smoke over the edge.

A fine game which will keep pyramid addicts on the edge of their sarcophagi.
