Once this was a happy place to live. There was plenty to eat and drink, and the children could play safely in the forests. The King was wise and ruled with a gentle hand.

Then a Druid magician completed the enchantment of a powerful amulet. The amulet, thought the Druid, would subdue the dragon. The Druid, controlling the fierce beast, would become invincible. So, amulet in hand, the Druid magician entered the dragon's cave.

And fell into a trap.

The amulet skidded out of the Druid's hand...and into the dragon's claw. The Druid fled in terror. The dragon lay still, puzzled and fascinated.

Slowly, the magic powers of the amulet flowed into the dragon. To his physical strength were added cunning, intelligence, and far greater magical powers. As the dragon gained power, he became obsessed with evil. And he turned the full force of his evil powers against the once happy Kingdom.

From his cave, the dragon cast spells that caused crops to parch and die. Hidden pools of quicksand snared travelers on their way to village markets, Savage creatures-- maniacs, scorpions, demented monkeys, and worse-- attacked without warning or provocation.

The Kingdom became a desperate and treacherous place. The King's loyal knights had all fallen to the dragon's evil warriors. The King's Wizard was helpless against the dragon's magic. There was only one hope left.

The Dragonstomper.
You'll need all your wits, strength, intuition, and resourcefulness to dispatch the evil that hangs over the Kingdom. First, you must battle your way across the countryside, giving the dragon's creatures a taste of your blade. Then, you must prepare yourself for the big brawl, recruiting men and supplies from the oppressed village. Finally, you must conquer the dragon and smash the evil amulet.

Another day in the life of a Dragonstomper.
