Wizards & Warriors

The Journey of Kuros Continues . . .

You are Kuros, the knight warrior.  Hero of the Books of Excalibur.  Your journey begins deep within the woods of Elrond, where even the wind obeys the Supreme Wizard Malkil.  A wizard so great, Merlin calls him teacher.  But Malkil has strayed from the path, and is now part of the dark side.

Buried with the catacombs and dungeons of Elrond lies the key to your quest.  The powers of leviation, the cloak of darkness, and the mysterious potions only Kuros can drink will be revealed to you.

In caverns of fire, through demons that fly and crawl, against the soliders of the undead you must continue.  No sorcery can prevail.  For you are the only knight with the strength to wield the Brightsword.

The prisoner of the wizard awaits.  She calls to you from Castle IronSpire.  But the wizard is watching you, warrior.  And this tale has just begun.

Codes, Cheats & Spoilers
 =>Weird Warp: In the second forest scene, just after the red caves, head all
the way left. Jump repeatedly, tapping U, and Kuros will warp to the right
side of the screen, but further into the game.
