How It Begins

You're one of the fabled Argonauts (although not Jason, your boss). Somehow, without quite understanding how, you find yourself in the boxing ring with the very muscular King Amycus of the Bebrycians. He won't let any of you leave the island until the boxing match is over.

Notable Features

  • The game uses fanciful text boxes for special 'batfight' effects ala the 60s Batman series. For example:
!%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%!
!%%%% GREAT  GLAUCUS %%%%!
!%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%!

Trivia and Comments

  • The 'land of the Bebrycians' was thought to have been in Bithynia, now on the Black Sea coast of modern Turkey.
