About the Story

Cassette cover blurb for C64 version (1988): "When your friend loses his egg cup, you may laugh. When your king loses his egg cup, you may fake some sympathy. But when a God loses his Golden Egg Cup there is nothing to do but go and find it. With stunning graphics of every location, a fully intelligent parser, and a plot closer to Edward Lear than King Lear, there is nothing more you could want."

Editorial Reviews

Spectrum 2.0

"Large, entertaining and humourous text adventure from the exceptional Smart Egg Software. Whilst at least one of the puzzles needed to complete the game struck me as a little obscure, this is nonetheless a fascinating and funny journey into a well-realised fantasy world full of atmospheric locations and enjoyably-silly characters. My only real criticism is the graphics which seem to use some sort of "tile" system which means that they are only effective in a few places and actually reduce the impact of the text in others."
