Description (by Al Lowe)
The Black Cauldron was the last of the pre-Michael Eisner Disney animated feature-length movies. Disney had no software developers back then and had seen my very early game, Troll's Tale. They asked me to do a movie spinoff using its simplified Spacebar & Enter key-only interface. They gave me complete access to the original hand-painted backgrounds, the original Elmer Bernstein score, even the original animation cells, which were still literally lying in heaps, before being sent off to the dump! (Eisner fixed that tradition quickly!) The story echoes the movie, but anywhere you could do something different from the action in the movie, you received more points for doing so. There are at least six different variations of the ending, based on decisions made throughout game play.
