Whilst clearing out some old floppies (A:/!!) I found a very old Klick 'n' Play game demo that I worked on years ago. In the interests of a laugh, I've uploaded it here. I'd love to see what people have to say about it after all this time.
In the beginning Dragons where everywhere. In the skies, in the hills, and under the seas. It is said that when the world was young, they where already old. But suddenly and without warning they all vanished. And not one Dragon of old has been seen in the world since that faithful day. In their absence, the race of man began to grow and spread, and soon the mighty Stygian Empire was founded that spread from the middle lands to the cost seas. But not to the western continent of Gaia, where water fortifies it from every side. The Emperor, a cruel man, brought with him a new age of technology and used it to conquer the rest of the known world. With his twisted machines he has preserved his life for a thousand years, and is ever plotting to make Gaia his own. But the people of Gaia have control of powers beyond his understanding, for they can harness the Magic in the earth, and no technology can match it. And so the stalemate continues, Gaia alone and unconquered, and Stygia, that covers the known world.
13 years ago, the Empire heard rumour of a small child who had been born in a village not far from the capital city. This child possessed a strange birthmark on his right hand, in the shape of an eye. Scared and angered, the Emperor declaired that the village should be burnt to the ground, and every man woman and child to be killed. All except that five year old child. Who was brought back to provide entertainment in the Imperial Arena of Death. There the child was thrown into a cage of crazed monsters, armed only with a hunting knife. To the Court's amusement, the boy survived, and was consequentially sold into slavery as a Gladiator. Ever since that time, he has been forced to fight and kill just to be fed and allowed to live another day. Unable to make friends, or trust anyone on pain of death. It was a cold existance, untill one night that boy, now a man, snuck out of the dungeons, and managed to escape out into the world beyond the arena walls . . .
If you are planning to get anywhere fast in this game, you will need to know how to navigate your way around the gaming screen. To aid you in this, the following is a complete listing of every control within the game that you will be required to use. Study it well, and you should have no problems.

DOWN ARROW = Move your character South.
LEFT ARROW = Move your character West.
RIGHT ARROW = Move your character East.
SPACE BAR = Confirm action / Scroll text.
