In the beginning, there was "So You Want To Be A Hero." Compute! Magazine called it "...a breakthrough in adventure game design..." and Computer Gaming World Magazine, in awarding the game 'Adventure Game of the Year' said the game was "extremely fun to play" and "satisfying by any measure."
Now Sierra is proud to introduce the second chapter in this amusing yet challenging adventure series, Trial by Fire. Set in the mystical tradition of The Arabian Nights, this sequel expands on those gameplaying elements that made the original a bestseller.
A Tale of Two Cities...
Far across the blazing desert lies the beautiful city of Shapeir, a peaceful place where folks are friendly and a Hero can relax for a while...Alas, a Hero's work is never done. Soon the call of duty comes in the form of a warning: Beware the evil of Raseir, once the mirror image of Shapeir, now a dark reflection ruled by evil. Soon its poison will begin to seep into Shapeir, and the land and its people will be doomed. It's a race against time, and our Hero must face many trials and constant dangers in an attempt to free Raseir from a dark shadow and restore Raseir's true form -- a mirror of the peace and beauty that is Shapeir.
