Hall of the King is part 1 of a 3 part graphical adventure game series. Each game in the series took 2 single sided
disks, so the complete adventure game took 6. At the time (1985-1987), it was the largest adventure game
done on the Coco. The general purpose throughout all three games in the trilogy is your
quest to find the Earthstone, a powerful stone originally owned by the dwarves of Firrhest until they were forced to flee
their possible destruction. In part 1, you have to travel in the dwarven living chambers searching for clues and
one of the mystic key pieces that promises entrance to the legendary chamber of the Earthstone.
I believe that this was Glen Dahlgren's first commercial game, and was sold for a few years through Prickly Pear Software, until he later sold the whole trilogy himself through his own company, Sundog Systems.
