A generous donor gave me this with some other software recently, so I was able to scan the packaging and documents, but the disk had been damaged, so the new archive I've uploaded is just the original upload now wrapped in a disk image, plus the docs. BTW it works in Mini vMac just fine for me.

Thanks, Shinshu, for the detailed information about this game. I would see this as an official description.

The readme file says the game runs with Mac Plus (and so b/w graphics), too, but Mini-vMac refuses with an 'unimplemented trap' error.

save yourself the trouble and dont play this hunk of junk. 1st, the mutants never die no matter how many times you bonk them, then the controls suck because nick (the guy you play as) moves too damn fast to really move around, and worst of all, the spells to turn the objects from stone to what they used to be are impossible to get because the spells can only be used if you have the objects already (aint that a catch 22 and a paradox wrapped up in one!) sure, the objects can be picked up when you first start out, but because of mutants bein so fast (even faster than nick!), they can take your stuff away, and since they dont die, theres no way to get anything back once its been lost. and because the morons who made this game gave it crappy controls,(who ever heard of makin a character keep movin when you let go of a button? WTF?!) that slows you down and theres not much time before mohawk (the bad guy) turns everything to stone, the game really blows. add a damn time limit to game play(the limit is longer than with many timed games, but because of the before-mentioned slow-downs, its not enough to get anything done) and the hard-ass puzzles to solve (must have an object to give a stone "guy" to get help with stuff but the objects cant be picked up if theyre stone and if you dont have an object to unfreeze stone because mutants took it away, you may as well quit the game and trash it because theres no way to get the object to do the spell if its stone) quite possibly one of the worst games ive ever played, and ive played some god-awful games.(a game is bad if its too hard to play without cheats, especially if the game doesnt even have cheats. thats why most flash games suck ass)
