This title does not actually belong on these pages. It is a collection of the games Colossal Adventure, Adventure Quest and Dungeon Adventure. While the original games were based on Tolkien's world, all such references were changed in this collection; probably to avoid copyright voilation.

Personal evaluation: See entries for the individual games. This collection also adds rather good graphics.

Alternative cover

The picture on the cover of the US release. The one on top of the page is the original European edition. Note that the US cover picture is just a detail from the European.
