Description of Elf

Fantasy jump'n run well-suited for fans of the genre. Also features some simple adventuring elements such as picking up objects and "using" them on characters that come by your way.

Technically very nice, enjoyable gameplay and overall Elf doesn't take itself too seriously. Case in point: the evil guy in the game is called "Necrilous the Not-Very-Nice"... hehe =)

Not easy to get to run on modern PCs, but works fine on my old 486. So good luck, I hope it will work on your machine. ;)

Maybe this may help in the "manual" department.

Edit: I added manual and pc instruction pdfs, thx !

I'm playing this using D-Fend Reloaded. I see there is an option for loading games at the start menu of "Elf", but I haven't been able to work out how to "save" them yet. Any ideas?

To start a new game, use the right shift button of the keyboard. Right shift is also the key shoot at enemies.
