It has been a few years since my latest release on the Sinclair ZX81 and Commodore PET, but I am happy ' to finally announce a new game for these platforms, called Mage: The Enchanted Crystals

While working on his latest and powerful spell,Wizzy's father was being watched by others. As a precaution, he captured the spell inside a crystal and divided it into 4 pieces, which he buried inside the mines, just south of your village. It is now up to you to collect these pieces and bring them together inside the enchanted chest to ensure the spell doesn't fall into the wrong hands.

Game Trailers:

Sinclair ZX-81 version:

In contrast to my previous games for these systems, which were a bit smaller and very arcade like, this is a more complex game with a larger world to explore.
