Welcome to the secrets of Land of Gareth

Now complete version

"Land of Gareth" is an interesting mixture of action and strategy game inthe genre of 'Jump and Run'-games.

The magician Gareth assumed the power of the once wonderful kingdom of Konastosia. Once upon a time the people of Konastosia lived peacefully and happily together. The old king reigned with a strong but fair heart. For all his power he used the magical sceptre of light to keep the kingdom peaceful. Suddenly the evil magician Gareth stole the sceptre and assumed the power.

As he couldn't use the power of the sceptre as he wished (The power of the sceptre could only be used in a peaceful way...), he started to demand higher taxes. The happy life of the peasants changed to a life of the poor.

But you have the power and spirit to change life in Konastosia back to paradise. You must find the sceptre and fight against the magician.

The game is delivered in two Versions:

  • In the one player Version you have to go through several different levels, seek the magic sceptre, and finally fight against the evil magician at the end of the game.
  • In the two player Version you basically fight together against the evil. But saving your own live, the avarice for money, and last but not least the highscore, are only some reasons why the game often becomes an exciting struggle for survival. The two player version is much easier to play than the one player version. But together with a good opponent, even the simplest level could become a breath taking hunt.
