Game Introduction

Each player can select from four distinctive characters: Prince Lassid, Princess Lisa, Sinbad or Afshael, each armed with their own special magic and powers.

A long, long time ago, the Evil One plagued the peaceful kingdom of Shahariyard. Reclaim the peace once taken by the Evil One. In order to save the King, who, by sorcery, had been transformed into a monkey, our heroes must find the Jewel of Seven Colors and release the evil hex. But, formidable monsters are lurking along their path.

Suspenseful battle scenes, skillful sword fights and a magic lamp with a powerful Genie which fells all enemies with a single blow, await the players. Can you survive unscathed and find the Jewel of Seven Colors? The adventure to restore peace to the kingdom begins.

Game Play

Throughout the game, the player characters can fight the enemies with their weapons and fighting techniques. They can also occasionally call the Genie to help them defeat their foes.

The game has seven different stages. Every stage includes a wide variety of impressive rounds, each giving the player a barrage of different attacks and plenty of unique items to uncover. Defeat a boss enemy at the end of each stage and get the Jewel of Seven Colors.

The game ends when the player has recovered the Jewel of Seven Colors, saved the King (while making him human again), restored peace to Shahariyard and cleared all seven stages.
