The Price of Magik
Sequel to the previous game; Myglar the Magician, guardian of the Crystal, has become insane and is draining its energy for his own use; he must be defeated before it is exhausted.
- Sinclair User, review of The Price of Magik:
"... further proof of Level 9's position as the leading UK adventure house... Everything in The Price of Magik is for the best - plot, parser, graphics, and above all the execution of the game."
