TaskMaker is a computer role-playing game for the Macintosh. The original black-and-white version was published by XOR Corporation in 1989. In 1993, Storm Impact released an upgraded shareware version featuring color graphics and compatibility with newer versions of the Mac OS.
Play and keep TaskMaster for as long as you'd like. You have unlimited use of all of the features of the game, and access to the tutorial and five villages/dungeons. However you can only complete up through the 2nd of ten tasks (about 3 to 6 hours into the game).

A shareware payment of $10 will get registration numbers for all of Storm Impact's games emailed to you, gratis.

2nd DL: TaskMaster v2.2.4 as above but in a ".iso" wrapper. - some have had difficulties in using the file from the Storm Impact site and this is an attempt to make the archive more user friendly for emulator users. Simply unzip on your host PC/Mac and add the ".iso" to the list of drives in Basilisk's or SheepShaver's GUI. TaskMaster will then mount as a disk drive when you next start up your emulator.
You can also access this ".iso" on a classic Mac or emulator if you wish to; Use MacZip to extract and the resulting file is mountable read/write in Disk Copy 6.x

Storm Impact also released a sequel, The Tomb of the Taskmaker, in 1997.Compatibility
Tested as working in Mini vMac (SSW 7.1), Basilisk II JIT & Build 142 (SSW 7.1.1) & SheepShaver (OWR, Mac OS 7.6.1). Not tested by myself in later Mac OS's, but this game may work OK in those too.
