The forces of light leap from your fingertips!

You are Illuminar, the legendary Druid sorcerer rallying the forces of nature to combat evil. Defender of truth and freedom, only you have the power to challenge Tetragorn, the Necromancer, whose black magic darkens the forest and threatens doom to its helpless inhabitants.

Tetragorn rules his troops of Ogres and dreaded Spiders with terror. His evil is poisoning the far reaches of Illuminar's forest. You must stop the Necromancer from dominating the entire kingdom!

Your ancient spells bring life to the forest and the very Trees wil come to your defense. Plant new Trees wherever you can and protect them with your magic Wisp. This miraculous beam leaps from your fingertips to stop the Ogres' clubs. Then gather your armies of oaks and descend into the Spiders' vaults to continue the battle against evil. Descend further to defeat the Necromancer himself in his own unreal domain.

The Necromancer threatens you and saps your strength through three levels of game play. Hold true, and the forces of Light will bring you triumph in this dark encounter.

Trotz der Namensgleichheit hat das Spiel nichts mit dem für 1986 geplanten Arcadespiel Necromancer von Atari Games zu tun. Dieses Spiel erschien bereits 1982 bei Synapse Software (1986 von Brøderbund aufgekauft) für die Atari 8-Bit-Computer und 1983 für den Commodore 64. 1988 sicherte sich Atari die Vermarktungsrechte am Synapse-Spiel, um damit die XE System-Konsole am Markt zu pushen.
