At the beginning of April 2016 Peter Verdi's Magnetic Scrolls Chronicles website went offline. So far all my attempts to contact Peter failed. His site carried some invaluable interviews with former Magnetic Scrolls people. To preserve the work I temporarily uploaded a dump of his site taken in summer of 2015. All you can see below is 100% Peter's work! Hopefully his site will reappear soon! Peter, if you read this, can you contact me?

Remember how it's like to ride on a cloud? How it feels to be squashed by a bus, or how to get that damned gold disc from Micky? Well, here's your chance to relive all these situations.

Have a chat with the devil in THE PAWN, ransack an entire island in THE GUILD OF THIEVES, restore luck itself to a whole country in JINXTER, uncover a conspiracy in CORRUPTION, become an inter-dimensional secret agent in FISH!, an ancient god in MYTH, walk in the footsteps of Alice in WONDERLAND and inherit a haunted mansion in THE LEGACY.
Become a part of the fantasy of Magnetic Scrolls - you certainly won't regret it . . .

This is the "Text" section of "Myth". Here you will find articles and reviews of "Myth" I gathered over time.

Review (Commodore 64) from Commodore User magazine
Review written by Keith Campbell


Inter-Mediates/Magnetic Scrolls

Commodore 64 disk/Amiga

If you are a member of Official Secrets, the Adventure/Strategy/RPG game club, or join before August this year, you get a free copy of this adventure, written exclusively for the club.

Myth is a mini-adventure with about thirty locations, but because it was programmed with Magnetic Scrolls' usual adventure system, there is room for masses of text - and that is what you'll find in it. There are very few 'scenery' objects, and the messages are full and plentiful.

Set in the days of Greek mythology, you play the part of Poseidon, god of the sea. Zeus is having a temple-warming party when he decides that gods have too easy a life - and so he announces it is his intention to strip them of their godly powers, until such time as they succeed in a task, normally befitting a mortal hero.

And it's just your luck he picks on you first - to enter Hades and steal the fabled helmet of invisibility.

Embarrassing, too, for the god of the sea, who can't swim, and comes across deep waters early in the game!

Don't be put off by it being a mini-adventure - it is about the same size as a 'full size' text adventure. You get four pictures up to usual Scrolls standard, plus text undreamed of in those bygone days!
