The Final Challenge for Power in The Lord of the Rings...
RETURN to Mordor, where a dull red sky is filled with the dust and heat of Mount Doom. Brave the ash-covered wastelands of Gorgoroth, the blood-splashed courtyards in the Tower of Cirith Ungol, and a horrifying torture chamber guarded by grinning, brutal orcs. Bring all your strength and faith in Middle-earth; for you will be tested to the limit of your endurance as you struggle to fulfill the noble quest of the Ringbearer.
The Crack of Doom begins outside the forbidding gates of Cirith Ungol, where Sam waits, exhausted and sick at heart. Dare he enter the tower and try to save his beloved master, Frodo? Or should he somehow try to complete the quest alone, and hurl the Ring of Power into the fires of Mount Doom?
To capture the desperation of Sam's quest, The Crack of Doom is a fast-paced, challenging game that demands clear-headed action at every move. Dizzying mazes and creeping lava thwart your goal, and around every corner waits the evil force of Sauron, eager to relieve you of your precious baggage, or your life!
The Crack of Doom Software Adventure helps you face this terrifying quest by providing you with a map, a guide to the history and legends of Middle-earth, and hints on working with the software. You'll need plenty of bravery and endurance as well - and the belief in your quest - to break the spell of the Dark Lord's strength.Good luck, Sam and Frodo! The fate of Middle-earth is in your hands. This is your last chance, and time is running out!
