Description (by Brøderbund Software)

You've won the heart of the Sultan's lovely daughter. But in so doing, you have made a powerful enemy - the Grand Vizier Jaffar. On his orders, you're arrested and thrown into the Sultan's dungeons. As for the Princess, Jaffar gives her a choice, and one hour to decide: Marry him - or die. All hopes rest on you.
