The Hewson blurb on the cassette inlay proudly proclaims "Avalon - The 3D Adventure Movie". A bold and brash statement suggesting an interactive gaming experience comparative to playing the hero in the latest blockbuster movie.
On opening the video cassette style box, players find an explorer’s map that can be referenced whilst taking Maroc on his travels, a comprehensives set of instructions (that hint on Avalon being a more complex game than it actually is) and a colour coded sheet of paper from which three separate security codes need to entered to allow access into the game.
Avalon proves to be a mystical graphical wonder within which the player guides Maroc the Wizard - or to be more be precise, his astral projection - through dungeons in search of Lord Chaos in order to destroy him. Along the journey spells can be collected and used to aid the wizard on his quest. All very standard fare, one might say - a wizard, an enemy to destroy, spells to cast and a dungeon to explore.
