Experience the Excitement and Wonder of Tolkien's Middle Earth!
Interplay Productions presents the first role-playing computer game encompassing the epic fantasy world pf J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth. Players journey through a world inhabited by hobbits, elves, dwarves and wizards, falling in and out of the clutches of wolves, wargs, trolls, orcs, and ghosts, all the while protecting the one true ring from falling into the grasp of the evil Lord Sauron and his Dark Riders.
Combining the best elements of role-playing and graphics adventures, The Lord of the Rings, Vol. I uses stunning full screen, top-down, 256 color VGA graphics, smooth four directional scrolling, digitized sound, an easy to use point-and-click icon interface, and an off-line paragraph system to bring the depth of the true Tolkien experience to life via the computer.
The enhanced CD-ROM edition adds digitized scenes from Ralph Bakshi's animated Lord of the Rings movie.
