    Enter the fantastic world of the Dark Tower -- a world filled with adventure, danger and all the mysteries of ancient times.

    You control a squadron of warriors as you search an adventure-filled forest for the magical keys that will unlock the entrance to the Dark Tower. Guide your warriors to the enchanted chests scattered throughout the forest -- each will contain a new puzzle, adventure, terror or treasure. Use your warriors wisely and beware the evils of the forest!

    Dark Tower is a one player game. You can begin Dark Tower at any of four different skill levels. The skill level determines how many keys you are given before starting your journey. Game 1 is the most difficult; Game 4 is the least difficult.

    The games are as follows:
    Game 1: NONE
    Game 2: Silver
    Game 3: Silver and bronze
    Game 4: Silver, bronze and brass

    To select the skill level, press Button 2. (Note: You will not receive and points for the keys initially given in Games 2, 3 or 4.)
