For System 1 - 5
Emulation
This game works with: Mini vMac

The graphics in LEGACY are the most complex and life-like to ever appear in an adventure game.
- Back cover

Boasts like this have become meaningless white noise on modern game packaging, but Legacy's creators meant every word. The Mac's screen resolution dwarfed its competition in August 1984, and even Mac adventures like Transylvania, Enchanted Scepters and The Quest didn't come near to Legacy's intricate 511x202 panoramas for each room.

What makes this even more impressive is that it was a world-class product published by a group of high school students, one of whom was inspired to found a company to write Mac-exclusive software after seeing a 128K in a store. And if the writing tries overly hard to sound sophisticated, only to stumble into a phrase like "immolation by fire," well, these kids acquitted themselves a lot better than a certain A-list novelist did on Amazon.

Legacy is a two-part text/graphic adventure. A magical orb in Drab Castle must be found through the use of spells and careful adventuring. Well-constructed, fun to play. $39.95.
- MacUser capsule review (rated 4 out of 5 mice)

Important: If playing on an emulator (or a dual-floppy Mac), insert the second disk immediately after the first one. Also, be aware that there are two saved game slots, one on each disk. If you're in the wrong place: to load the Disk One save, just start a new game and Resume; to load the Disk Two save, start a new game, head due west until across the river, and Resume.

Version: 1.0

Tip: This game has its own system. Launch Mini vMac and drag disk1 to the blinking question mark then disk 2 and all works as if you had two floppy disk drives.
