Description of Talisman: Challenging the Sands of Time

One of the few games set in exotic Arabia, Talisman combines the well-known Arabian myths of genies and evil vizors into a captivating game. As a Persian hero, find the legendary Talisman to destroy the evil genie who is ravaging the land.

Puzzles are logical but made more memorable by their Arabian references. The parser is simple by adequate, and the storyline is captivating to the end. Thumbs up!

Does this game have any sound effects or music? Nothing comes out for me.

A good classic text adventure game. I especially like the graphics that are typical of that time.

But the game is quite hard, especially since you die from hunger after a limited number of steps which makes exploring difficult! That problem makes the game quite annoying. Too bad.
