Game Note: Set your 'Difficulty' while in the 'Great Hall' whenever you start a new game. Attempting to alter this setting after you enter your first room is considered cheating and will prevent any difficulty-based achievement from triggering.

I loved this game as a kid, but I was playing the Mac version. In that version, you used a mouse to raise and lower your aim for throwing rocks and it worked a lot better than aiming here. Anyway, thanks for the set, I'm going to struggle through it.

(Struggle through it as much as I can, anyway)

The original Mac B&W version was something to behold. I'll endeavor to try out every edition.
