* CoversAlwaysLie: The game's box art shows Alexander confronting the Minotaur with Lady Celeste in the background. In the game, Lady Celeste is on the other side of the room and is tied down on an altar rather than tied to a wall. The Minotaur was also busy tormenting Lady Celeste and didn't confront Alexander right away. It also gives the impression the Minotaur is the BigBad and/or FinalBoss. Rescuing Lady Celeste from the Minotaur is necessary to advance the plot in the long version, but it happens midway in the story, is not connected to Cassima's captivity and can be skipped entirely if you take the less rewarding short path.

* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:Justified in that Alexander goes on a long quest (fully a third of the game) to the Land of the Dead and defeats Samhain, Lord of the Dead, in a challenge specifically so that the latter will resurrect Caliphim and Allaria from their ghostly selves and gives them a few more years of their mortality. It's implied that anyone ''can'' do this, but only one other person was crazy enough to try, and he died before reaching the River Styx.]]
* BadBoss: Alhazred constantly command his genie Shamir by yelling at him. The Genie feels dejected whenever he carries out his orders.

* GuideDangIt: Well, obviously. It's a {{Sierra}} game. Several items in the game are small, easy to miss, and appear in a room you've already visited ''after'' an unrelated event some place else.
