TheKingdom of Callion is imperiled! The vile Hurks are massing to the south, and our swords are no match for their machine guns. Only with the scepters of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water can the wizard Elron repel the invasion. You, [[PlayerCharacter Saber]], have been tasked with recovering these mighty artifacts from the four corners of the world.

Released in 1984 on the fledgling AppleMacintosh platform, ''Enchanted Scepters'' was the first AdventureGame to incorporate PointAndClick elements. It was also the first product of the World Builder engine, which was afterward sold separately as a GameMaker.

!!This game contains examples of:

* AnachronismStew -- Wizards and robots, catapults and tommy guns, [[{{Prehistoria}} cavemen and dinosaurs]]...
* {{Atlantis}}
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking -- From the back of the box:
--> With actual recorded sounds for scenes, characters, and objects. Monsters roar, swords swoosh, [[ChirpingCrickets crickets chirp]].
* CapturedByCannibals
* ConvectionSchmonvection
* CopyProtection -- In a pirated copy, Saber will randomly be struck on the back of the head by a pirate and thrown in an arena to face a TyrannosaurusRex.
--> The pirate laughs: Har, Har, Har!
* DamnYouMuscleMemory -- Unlike most InteractiveFiction, you need to type ''Command''-N, -S, -E, or -W to move. Unlike most Mac games, Command-S will therefore ''not'' save your position.
* DeathMountain

* RiddleMeThis -- Solve the Earth Demon's riddle and you don't have to fight him.
* SadlyMythtaken -- A cameo by "the goddess [[EgyptianMythology Osiris]]."
* SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud -- An unusual variation. The narration "A huge tidal wave roars from the south" is accompanied by ''the sound of an animal roaring,'' followed by a splash.
