Dark Ages  1991

Dark Ages is an extremely primitive-looking platformer in which you play a prince who was kidnapped by an evil wizard and raised by a peasant who turned out to be a hero. Trained to use magic, you must save your kingdom from the dark ages by defeating the evil wizard, Garth, who has given the kingdom to undead creatures and rules with an iron fist. There are 3 volumes in this game, with only the first volume playable in the shareware version.

Volume 1: Prince of Destiny
Volume 2: The Undead Kingdom
Volume 3: Dungeons of Doom
