Description
4L 2716. Rarity 3 scarce. North America NTSC. 1 player only.
Based loosely on Act 2, scene 7? of Henrik Ibsen's Peer Gynt. This games uses 2 musical pieces from the play; In the Hall of the Mountain King and Anitra's Dance. Don't worry, this time Peer brings a flashlight so he won't have to stumble around in complete darkness like the actors in the play. In order to steal the king's crown, you'll need 1000 points and the Flame Spirit. Once you have the crown in hand you still need to escape with it. There is a time limit. Avoid the bats who offer no professional courtesy to fellow thieves and will take your acquired crown. Also avoid the Spider and its webs.
K-Byte handled the porting.
