Game Instructions –

Ka’ai has been captured by Drugano, and is being held captive inside a tower said to have magical powers. She remains there, awaiting the day the knight Gi’il comes to her rescue.

After the title screen appears, press any key to start the game. Each level has to be slowly loaded and drawn, so please be patient while this happens.
You have to explore the maze, find the key, escape to the exit and advance to the next floor. Furthermore, a treasure may appear if you do certain actions. The main objective of the game is to get all the necessary treasures, defeat Drugano at the top floor, rescue Ka’ai and escape the tower.
There are a total of 5 treasures, which may appear based on 1 of 6 different conditions.
There are a total of 15 floors, with the game ending after clearing the topmost one. That being said, if you don’t have all the treasures before entering the 15th floor, you’ll be kicked back to the 1st floor.

Use the 8426 keys to move your character, and the space key to draw your sword. You can also use the XFER key to break a wall (if you have a pickaxe).
While holding a sword, you’re able to kill slarms. After you kill one, a hyper slarm (which can pass through walls) or a warp slarm may appear.
