Video Game: Catacomb
Catacomb is a 2-D game created by John Carmack. It was originally created for the Apple II, and later ported to the PC. It should not be confused with The Catacomb, which is the second game in the series (originally named Catacomb II, but later renamed). It supports EGA and CGA graphics.

In the game you play the magician Petton Everhail. At the start you are contacted by Terexin, High Wizard of the Kieralon who tells you how the Kieralon Empire has fallen. He convinces you to travel to the Kieralon Palace to collect his treasures and split them fifty-fifty.

Catacomb consists of ten levels. To progress to the next level you must step through a magic teleportation mirror. These mirrors are usually behind a locked door, requiring you to obtain a key to advance.

Needs Wiki Magic Love.

This Video Game contains examples of:

  • Excuse Plot: There is a plot, but it's not like it's really necessary.
  • The Hero: Petton Everhail.
  • Locked Door: You'll encounter these a lot, and you must find the key to unlock them and progress.
