The Temple of Apshai is a computer role-playing game from Epyx. The game was first released for the TRS-80 in 1979, followed by versions for other popular computers of the time. Later it was even made available with improved graphics for the Amiga and Atari ST home computers. Temple of Apshai was the first title in what became the Dunjonquest series.
Two add-ons to Temple of Apshai were released: Upper Reaches of Apshai and Curse of Ra. Both required the original game and expanded play through the introduction of additional levels, rooms, and monsters. This trilogy was later released as a whole as the The Temple of Apshai Trilogy, which unified look-and-feel while improving both graphics and sound.

Back of Box
The Gates of Apshai loom before you. Many adventurers have stood here and pondered their fate. Will you plunder the grand treasures of the Apshai priests? And live to learn the secret of the Sphinx? Did the wily innkeeper wheedle his profit from your meager purse? Or do you go forth equipped with the finest swords and armor leaving him muttering oaths and swearing you stole the food from the mouths of his babies?
Once inside the Temple you know why the Legends of Apshai speak of Magic. You will need more than a character of strength and intelligence and the keen nose of intuition to overcome the evil and power of the Curse of Ra. The monsters roam about--Zombies, Ghouls and the terrifying minions of Apshai, the Insect God. Giant mosquitos, wasps, ants and beetles suddenly attack, biting and clawing. This my friend is adventure--classic adventure from the DunjonMasters at Epyx. Welcome to the Temple of Apshai Trilogy...you're just in time for lunch!
