Description (by Capstone Software)

Deep within the volcanic pit of the Island of Char lies the mystical lair of Witchaven. There, witches older than time itself cast a shadow of evil spells that shroud your people in never-ending darkness. The power of demons grows as the sun sinks below the horizon. Tonight the beast is hungry.

Only you can lift the curse. Using your wits, spells, weapons, and courage conquer the demons and creatures who stand watch over the darkness. Defeat demon-spawns and their creators. Return your people to the light.
