About the Story

Originally published by Talent Computer Systems for the Sinclair QL computer, this game is a spoof adventure based on The Pawn written by Magnetic Scrolls. The game remains available through RWAP Adventures

In this version, you play the role of a Prawn who was scooped up in a trawler net and you end up on a strange land, wearing a copper tail-band, which must have been placed on you during your sleep because you cannot remember how it got there.

Many features of this game are similar to the Pawn, although not all of the puzzles can be solved in the same manner. There is a philosopher, an itinerant salesperson, a magician who arrives on a giant pop bottle top, a castle with gardens to explore, a mountain with a cave, an Ice Tower guarded by a shrimp and even a tree stump!!
