From the browser, select 'Rite of the Druid.tap'.
Push 'N' for Next Mode (otherwise graphics will not be visible).

You are part of a small tribe, preparing to take part in a ritual that will allow you to become a full druid. You are transported to a strange land where you must find the rune of power and return to complete the rite.

The game uses standard VERB NOUN input (such as GET STICK, FILL BOTTLE etc). Shortcuts, like X for EXAMINE and I for INVENTORY are also available.

Really enjoyed Rite of the Druid as the first game to try on my ZX Spectrum Next. I din't stop playing until I reached the end!

One small thing, the game allowed me to fix the mechanism near the volcano without actually having the required part.

Thanks for the feedback. I found the offending bit of code. It should be OK in the new update, it was just my fault for forgetting to put in a check.

Many thanks for the update... I am really looking forward to playing this one! :)

Only played the first little bit, very atmospheric, different and making me want to continue...
