The Kristal Description

The Kristal is a computer game first released in 1989 for the Commodore Amiga computer. It was later released for the Atari ST and IBM PC. It was developed by the UK-based company Fissionchip Software, and published in Europe by Addictive Games and in the USA by Cinemaware. Unusually, the game is based on a play, the Kristal of Konos, written in 1976; the authors of the play worked together with the game developers and the play was never shown in theatres & never shown on film before the game's release. A dialog introducing the setting recorded by Patrick Moore was used to introduce both the game and play.

The player takes the role of a pirate named Dancis Frake, on a mission to recover the "Kristal" on behalf of the Kring of Meltoca.

The game features a number of different classic game genres merged together: fighting, space flight/combat, and (to a limited extent) LucasArts-style point and click adventuring.
